"Best alternative for Photoshop"

What do you like best?

Pixlr is an incredible option in contrast to Photoshop. It enables you to utilize a few similar highlights without purchasing the expensive program. It likewise works inside your program so there's no compelling reason to download a program or application.

What do you dislike?

One of the destructions of Pixlr is the powerlessness to spare organizations or settings. In Photoshop, I can make an activity to consequently resize a photograph. This choice isn't accessible in Pixlr. I likewise despise the extensive advertisements that were as of late put on the correct side of the interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sure, I will suggest to my other friends to use it.

Its incredible in case I'm working from another PC that doesn't have my normal Adobe Suite introduced. I can simply pop onto Pixlr and I realize that I'll have the capacity to make nappy changes.

Being an Accountant, I don't know much about deigning much. I have to create some good creatives for festivals every month and having a basic knowledge of Photoshop I am able to create and edit images with Pixlr Editor even if I don't have Photoshop installed in my PC.

Sometimes the advertisements shown on screen while editing images become irritating. Otherwise there is nothing that I dislike about the functioning of Pixlr Editor.

You are able to save your work online and edit later from any computer with internet access.

"Online Photoshop Alternative"

What do you like best?

Pixlr has always helped me in completing my image editing tasks when I don't have Adobe Photoshop installed in remote PC. The thing that I like the most about Adobe Pixlr is that we can use all the keyboard shortcuts that we use in other desktop software.

What do you dislike?

Using Pixlr Editor requires prior technical knowledge. Also, the outlook is a bit clumsy as it shows advertisements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Every graphic designer and someone with bit editing technical knowledge must use this editor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recently I was out of office and my client wanted some edits in the image that I shared before. Thankfully I had my laptop and internet connection. I quickly opened Pixlr editor and made respective changes. Client Happy, Me Happy ;)

"No substitute for professional desktop photo editors"

What do you like best?

Pixlr provides a free, cloud-based photo editor than allows you to quickly create and share simple graphics and to edit photos. Sorry, but, "it's free", is the best I can do. Oh, there's also a Chrome app, which seems superfluous.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, I have a hard time understanding for whom this product would be a good fit. It's free, sure, but pirating the big apps like Photoshop seems so rampant while at the same time on the other end amazing and inexpensive tools like Affinity Photo (and Designer), both of which I paid for, use, and highly recommend, are easily available for the big platforms, I can't think of a single reason to use this other than to tinker with what seems mostly like an experiment for no-longer-cutting-edge web/interactive technologies.

No one who cares about typography, which is to say any serious designer, would be even remotely interested in using Pixlr. I have yet to be able to get Pixler to store my uploaded fonts from session to session, for example. The free fonts are inadequate, to say the least.

If you want to quickly apply trendy or useful filters, there are better solutions, such as Lightroom or VSCO and both have mobile apps.

Also, it's written in Flash, ugh, so how much longer is it going to stick around anyway?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pony up for paid applications.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can see no benefits from using this product over other freely available products.

"A must tool for creative writers & graphic lovers"

What do you like best?

Easy UI and editing options that make anyone easier to learn and use subsequently. Being a writer, at times it gets tough for me to search to get the perfect image each time. But, Pixlr makes it easier to arrange write and get it arranged on an image and post it. With an app of Pixlr editor, I am able to manage posting my thoughts and drafting them as image even while traveling. Unlike other editing software here I can add text as well and this don't make me work only on the desktop. So, I prefer this can be a helpful tool for the writers out there.

What do you dislike?

In the app there is restriction that only that set of words could be added, I never counted but it's somewhere around 240 or 280 characters, this creates trouble. Sometimes, managing the size of content in the app this way turns problematic.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since Pixlr editor's app can work within your phone, it's easier to work while traveling. This eliminates the need of distinct writing app, photo editing and photo collage apps, for sure it saves mobile memory. With easy UI, even a newbie can use it, so it easy for me to use it.

"Powerful Photo Editing Tool That Is Free Too? Unbelieveable"

What do you like best?

I like that Pixlr has so many editing tools available for the savy photo editor.

What do you dislike?

The amount of available tools can be a little overwhelming and may not be easily understood by the novice. A little Youtube watching will have you making stunning images like a pro.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a way to edit your photos economically then you won't be disappointed. If you are hoping to use some of the more advanced features, be prepared to watch some videos on Youtube to help you figure things out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Modifying images from an article by combining them with an image template that is set up just for a Facebook image.

"The BEST"

What do you like best?

I will scream my love of Pixlr from the rooftops. Before I had access to Photoshop, I would use this, and let me tell you it is the absolute closest you're going to get to Photoshop. AND no download required.

What do you dislike?

The keyboard shortcuts that you're used to using on photoshop don't usually transfer over to Pixlr. Last time I used it, it also didn't yet have the ability to open Photoshop files. That improvement would push Pixlr absolutely over the top. But for now, Pixlr is in it's own little ecosystem, which is wonderful until you need to leave it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you create and log in to an account before you start your design. You'll be able to save your working files as Pixlr docs and you'll be able to go back in later and make changes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its great if I'm working from another computer that doesn't have my regular Adobe Suite installed. I can just pop onto Pixlr and I know that I'll be able to make quick tweaks.

"Great Photoshop Substitution"

What do you like best?

Pixlr is a great alternative to Photoshop. It allows you to use several of the same features without having to buy the pricey program. It also works within your browser so there's no need to download a program or app.

What do you dislike?

One of the downfalls of Pixlr is the inability to save formats or settings. In Photoshop, I can create an action to automatically resize a photo. This option isn't available in Pixlr. I also dislike the large ads that were recently placed on the right side of the interface.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to easily edit and resize photos from anywhere whether or not I have access to Photoshop.

"Pixlr Editor Is An Excellent and Easy Image Editor"

What do you like best?

The online Pixlr Editor has comparable features to Adobe Photoshop, but can be accessed online for free. While the other Pixlr software costs money, I've found that the free version has a surprising number of options.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice to be able to copy and paste image layers from images copied from outside of the program (instead of having to import the image, then copy it and paste it into another image as a layer). The online nature of the program presumably requires a strong internet connection, and the editor needs to be careful to not close out of the window, although I've never personally lost my work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Pixlr to create images and banners for online articles. It's a free and easy equivalent to Adobe Photoshop.
