"Potenza di un'applicazione desktop in una pagina Web"

What do you like best?

Mi piace molto la comodità dell'app desktop. L'applicazione desktop è facile da usare, anche per chi non ha molta esperienza di fotoritocco. Per la maggior parte dei miei utenti che hanno solo bisogno della capacità di ritagliare, regolare l'illuminazione e guarire una situazione di macchia o occhi rossi, è perfetto. Mi piacciono gli strumenti "veloci" e uso spesso la sezione "affinare".

What do you dislike?

La possibilità di aprire una sola foto alla volta è una sorta di battito cardiaco. Spesso mi viene inviato un batch di foto che hanno tutte bisogno delle stesse modifiche fatte, illuminazione, ritaglio, ecc Non mi piace dover aprire ogni e salvare piuttosto che aprire tutti in una volta e scorrendo attraverso di loro rapidamente, chiudendo come ho finito le modifiche. Quando ho bisogno di fare questo, spesso torno a usare la versione online, che permette questo. Consente anche l'uso di livelli e più strumenti simili a photoshop. Gli strumenti veloci nella versione desktop funzionano, ma sono difficili da perfezionare. Ad esempio, quando si utilizza lo strumento "guarisci", non è possibile "annullare" una singola modifica e invece è necessario accettare o rifiutare tutte le modifiche in una sola volta, quindi la rimozione di un certo numero di imperfezioni richiede molto tempo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Raccomando vivamente di usare Pixlr per il fotoritocco! È semplice, gratuito e facile da usare.

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

È stato fantastico risparmiare sui costi e sulla formazione evitando di acquistare licenze Photoshop complete per ogni utente che ha bisogno di abilità di editing di base. La realtà della nostra attività è che abbiamo bisogno della grana fine per gli utenti con un tempo di formazione limitato e attenzione.

"Alternativa gratuita a Photoshop"

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta es que emula la mayoría de las funciones principales de Photoshop, todo con una aplicación web. Si sabe cómo usar Photoshop, pero no puede acceder a él por alguna razón, use Pixlr, no se arrepentirá. Sus funciones son gratuitas y todo en una misma pagina web. No se puede pedir más!!!

What do you dislike?

Que no tiene tantas herramientas como otros programas de pago, simplemente no tiene la misma calidad y tantas herramientas pero supongo que es por eso que es gratis !! Así que no me desagrada nada en particular porque realmente es muy bueno para ser algo completamente gratis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si quieres aprender Adobe Photoshop pero no tienes el dinero para el programa o la suscripción, o tal vez tu propio ordenador, ¡utilice Pixlr para aprender! ¡Es muy similar a Photoshop!

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

Utilizo Pixlr en casos de emergencia en los que no tengo acceso a Adobe Photoshop y necesito hacer algo lo antes posible, por lo que es una especie de software de respaldo de emergencia.

"Pixlr: Photoshop desde el navegador."

What do you like best?

Cuando no tengo Photoshop en un ordenador, Pixlr Editor es una solución web que hace todo lo que necesito. Incluso tiene los mismos atajos de teclado que usa Photoshop, lo que hace que la experiencia de usarlo sea casi exactamente la misma.

Lo mejor de todo es que Pixlr es totalmente gratuito, pudiéndolo usar cualquiera.

What do you dislike?

No es tan fluido como Photoshop, pues Pixlr se ejecuta desde el navegador. Además, no tiene compatibilidad con plugins. Al ser un producto de otra empresa, no cuenta con el mismo soporte que tiene Photoshop por parte de Adobe.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si no necesitas algo especial y específico de Adobe Photoshop, Pixlr satisfará todas tus necesidades. Sin embargo, si eres diseñador profesional no recomiendo Pixlr, ya que no es tan fluido como Photoshop.

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

Dado que la herramienta es fácil de usar, se es menos dependiente del equipo técnico y por tanto es más fácil que en la empresa sepan utilizarla distintos departamentos. Yo mismo he usado este software para realizar alguno de los gráficos de la empresa Q-tech.

"Free Photoshop Lite."

What do you like best?

Pixlr is an indispensable tool for people who have an on the go workflow and need to budget. Pixlr has browser based applications that are robust enough to do simple edits that can not be done on a regular preview like app. To work through the browser window can be ideal for when the work needs to be completed on a device that does not or can not run photoshop or other similar image editing software.

What do you dislike?

Flash is a non-standard these days and their adherence to these outmoded plugs-ins should be rectified. If in the future HTML 5 is introduced as the backend for the site, then this will really be competitive in not only the desktop User experience but as a mobile web app.

Pixlr's User Interface is quite similar to Adobe Photoshop, but there are many functions and features that do not work in the same way that they do in Photoshop. At times buggy and can crash with a heavy processing load. But this is negated by the acceptance that free software should have limited expectations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Flash implementation is clunky, if you are able to, consider Photoshop CS6 for long term use.

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

Needing a photo editor when none is available to use, since this is browser based I can run on most desktop/laptop computers (With Flash). I have been able to complete simple projects while on the run, using a USB backup drive and Pixlr's cloud based photo editor.

"El mejor editor de video online"

What do you like best?

La primera, y principal característica es que no tienes que descargar nada, por lo que podemos acceder desde cualquier dispositivo y en cualquier lugar. Se podría decir que tienes tu herramienta de trabajo en la nube. Es un programa bastante intuitivo, y si tienes ciertos conocimientos de diseño como por ejemplo en photoshop, no te resultará nada del otro mundo usarlo a la perfección. Tiene un montón de opciones y lo sorprendente es que está en la web.

What do you dislike?

La unica pega que le puedo poner a este programa es que al ser online, la velocidad del mismo depende de la conexión a internet, por lo que si la que usas cuando estas fuera es lenta, los tiempos de espera pueden ser algo desesperantes al cargar una imagen pesada.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No necesita instalación, es gratis y puedes usarlo donde y cuando quieras mientras que tengas conexion a internet. La posibilidad de personalización del cuadro de herramientas es fundamental a la hora de localizar tus iconos.

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

Los problemas que te pueden surgir cuando tienes que hacer un trabajo y te pilla fuera y da la casualidad que no te has llevado el ordenador. Puedes realizar un trabajo en un momento dado y conservar tu trabajo.

Los beneficios son muchos, a parte del anterior, que es un programa muy completo para ser online, y gratuito, Pixlr no tiene nada que envidiar a un programa de pago como el de Adobe.

"El mejor editor de fotos en la nube"

What do you like best?

Un editor de fotografías muy completo en la nube, sin necesidad de instalar nada, todo lo que necesitas es un navegador, una conexión de Internet y tienes un "photoshop lite" en tus manos en pocos segundos... ¿Cómo no amar ese software? Tenemos Photoshop y otros editores de imagen comerciales y aún así lo utilizamos para sacarnos de apuros cuando no estamos delante del equipo principal. Ademas la facilidad de entrar en la pagina y usarlo hace con que probarlo y ver si te sirve o no sea lo más fácil.

What do you dislike?

Su gran ventaja es también su desventaja, un software en la nube jamás tendrá el mismo desempeño de un programa nativo instalado en el ordenador. Sería útil que disponibilizar también una versión nativa del programa para instalación, pero eso ni siempre va de acuerdo con el modelo de negocio SAAS (software as a service - en la nube) y puede que sea difícil conciliar ambas versiones por temas de planes y suscripción.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No piensen 2 veces, es gratis y en la nube!

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

"You're More Creative Than You Think!"

What do you like best?

Pixlr is simply awesome. Easy to use, forgiving and exceptionally flexible. If you don't have experience with editing software Pixlr has you covered. Tools are laid out intuitively and it's easy to see, at a glance, what might help you achieve your goals. The help functions are also very user-friendly. Pixlr has been absolutely indispensable for me and I highly recommend it.

What do you dislike?

It's a little tough to come up with any 'dislikes', I find the color-picker and color-matcher a little challenging, probably because I seldom use them...a quick "how to" demo would be useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If Photoshop scares you a little you'd be well advised to check out Pixlr. It's a free online tool which will likely give you all you need for your visual projects. You don't need to be an artist either...an artist's eye certainly helps, but this program is quite friendly and easy to use...and, you'll be impressed with the results!

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

Pixlr has really helped us improve the quality of promotional announcements and advertisements - both online and printed/finished products. Pixlr offers such great flexibility and enables me to customize marketing materials quickly and professionally.

"Amazing option for professional edition features with excelente quality."

What do you like best?

Very friendly, with awesome professional features, i can definitely trust in Pixlr editor. It haves the most of PS tools and its a free online editor from Pixlr, you can use from your pc and your mobile device. For people that need to practice or do some emergency adjusts to a pic you can do it on Pixlr. I think its very friendly and not heavy to the ram, depends on your browser.

What do you dislike?

You can find very useful and practical but its limited, obviously we're talking about free software with a lot of function, but its a really solid option to work with being totally honest. The thing about ads around the Web Editor its just a minimal issue, nothing to have in a negative consideration.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I can recommend this tool not just for beginners, even for professional workers that just can't count with the PS software anytime and also just need to make some adjustment. Also recommend the other editor services provides by Pixlr company.

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

Definetely the strong postive factor its about get the most Photoshop features for free, and with even less problems running than PS that can be sometimes very problematic, good reasons to learn how to be a professional editor and a great designer, no matter whats your device, or where, you just can use Pixlr tools to manage different kind of projects.

"Just as good as the other guys"

What do you like best?

I like that it has a free web-based application that you can use as well that has just about all of the features of a full-blown version. AND it can be used from any browser. I also like that you can upload files from anywhere as well as web images and edit them right in place. Some of the draw tools are just as good as the draw tools in an actual illustrating program.

What do you dislike?

Unless you know Photoshop or another extensive photo editing software, it can be cumbersome to use at times and the location of some of these tools are in some inconspicuous places. Apparently, it is not that easy to upload a screenshot and place it on the editor though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You really can not go wrong with this tool. The applications provided in this software are rival to others.

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

I use it for not only photo editing, specifically renderings. But I also use it for graphics creating such as brochures, illustrations, and other high-resolution graphic art pieces. I also recommend it to my students as a low-cost alternative to their graphics editing needs.

"Editor Gráfico version web y app gratuito y genial"

What do you like best?

Pixlr es una herramienta de edición de imágenes totalmente gratuita en la web. No hay cargos ocultos y los usuarios pueden emplearlo incluso para uso comercial. Esto lo convierte en una solución rentable especialmente para artistas independientes y pequeñas empresas.

Pixlr puede ejecutarse en cualquier navegador en cualquier sistema operativo lo que lo hace muy versatil para usar en cualquier navegador en cualquier PC.

What do you dislike?

Al ser web es algo limitado, pero su precio y velocidad hacen de esta un problema menor

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pixlr puede tener una gran cantidad de herramientas para los procesos de edición complejos, pero también tiene herramientas para correcciones rápidas. Esto lo hace conveniente para aquellos que desean hacer retoques rápidos en las imágenes.

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

Lo uso como editor en navegadores si es para algo rápido que puedo hacer con sus funciones sin necesidad de cargar otro software mas pesado, simplemente accediendo a la web.

"My go-to use anywhere high powered quick access editor!"

What do you like best?

It's web based so I can use it with my chrome book, windows, macOS, tablets - almost anything with a browser. It's feature rich and can open Adobe file formats. It also has Drive integration that works pretty well. Being able to load from my computer or a url is awesome

What do you dislike?

I've not had any dislikes since they recently removed the 1/4 page ad that would sit to the right. It wasn't too big of a deal to be honest, it just distracted me and made me feel like I wasn't able to use my available real estate on screen. But again, they have removed it so there is nothing that stands out that I don't like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't use the shortcuts. Whether windows, mac or chromebook, you'll probably trigger some other command instead of the ones in Pixlr

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

The ability to do quick modifications to images while on the go with my chromebook is the best take away. Even on my desktop, it's often easier to just open Pixlr in a website than open Adobe Photoshop or similar image.

"the best tool to create and design in a versatile and practical way"

What do you like best?

As a designer I basically depend on tools like this, what I like the most is that it is very versatile when it comes to editing, its variety of templates gives me the advantage of giving me ideas and helping me to complement my work and ideas for designs

What do you dislike?

the only thing I do not like is that when you look for something, there is the background and everything else. and when the image weighs a lot it is usually pixeled, but the rest is very useful for me to work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you are a designer it is the best alternative, since it is not expensive and if you are starting in photoshop it will be very useful for you.

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

it helps me to design in a creative way since it has tools that facilitate everything to me when editing a photo or creating a logo for some publicity.

"Fantastic Free Photoshop Alternative!"

What do you like best?

The fact that I get many features of a full photo editing program for zero cost! I can pull it up from anywhere, on any browser, and do whatever I need with relative ease. Many of the computers in our workplace are not equipped with photo editing or graphic design software - as I move around the work environment I find myself using different computers throughout the day so it's nice to have an option I can use with minimal effort.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the ads but I understand why they're necessary with a free product. Luckily they're not intrusive.

There are a few features I'd like to see implemented but for basic photo editing and other graphic design it's more than sufficient.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cloud based editing and saving from any computer. What's not to love?

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

The fact that I can use this on just about any computer is perfect as not all of our computers are optimized for actual photo editing software. I can use it wherever I happen to be working.

"Pixlr is great for photo touchups."

What do you like best?

I like Pixlr because it allows you to turn regular photos into professional looking photos. You can easily work in layer and edit a single portion of a photo. The filters that come with Pixlr are very professional looking. You can also edit the settings of the filters so that you can customize your own. You can run the software directly from your browser which is nice if you use multiple devices.

What do you dislike?

I wish that Pixlr offered more features in the software. The editing tools seem pretty basic. The filters are nice, but I wish you could save your own filters after you make the settings. I like how you can use the software in a browser, but I wish that they had a downloadable version that could be synced with the browser version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend others to try Pixlr, but I would not substitute it for a major editing software.

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

I use Pixlr to turn regular photos into professional photos.

"Pixlr For Online Graphics: Mobile, Fast , Fun & Easy"

What do you like best?

I like the mobile access app and from the desktop there is no need to even log in to get started with Pixlr. If they are tracking users on their PC, it is unapparent, and that browser based app makes it instantaneously accessible,... a user can simply can edit a pic & tweet or post to any social program from within the mobile version. I can quickly go to the web page and link to an online URL of a photo, or even use it while on the bus to work from my phone. Desktop offers two modes...one very simple GUI for quick edits, and a more sophisticated interface very similar to Adobe Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

Pixlr was created by Autodesk I believe, and maybe could use some additional quick editing tricks, templates, perhaps offer a paid tier etc

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is certainly worth a try...

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

Social Media can be augmented with a great array of filters, fonts, and focus cropping with much ease of use. Pixlrs is lightweight browser based client and I use it as often as needed, sometimes daily.

"Gratuito y Eficaz editor web"

What do you like best?

Me gusta el hecho de que Pixlr tiene una variedad de opciones para realzar la belleza de una fotografía u obra de arte. Es un software fácil de usar y muy versátil a la hora de crear el aspecto perfecto para su material.

What do you dislike?

Se podria mejorar para guardar fotos de aun mayor calidad, algunas opciones son algo mas limitadas que otros editores, pero tambien es debido a que es gratuito.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo que lo prueben ya que es una herramienta muy versatil y rápida capaz de ejecutarse en cualquier navegador corriente, y solo con entrar tendras un editor básico aunque con buenas funciones para realizar trabajos de edición gráfica.

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

Edición de documentos gráficos y archivos de diseño desde el navegador, lo uso para cosas sencillas ya que carga super rapido comparado con un editor profesional como photoshop.

"Solucion económica y efectiva de diseño gráfico en cualquier PC"

What do you like best?

La herramienta siempre se ha caracterizado por ofrecer una experiencia de edición de imágenes potente y de diseño divertido en una ventana de navegador web. Es una solución rápida y efectiva para editar en PC que no tengamos instalados buenos programas de edición, basta con loguearse y empezar a trabajar y editar.

What do you dislike?

Al estar integrado en web tiene sus limitaciones como es normal, ahora existe la version app y de escritorio que esta mejorando bastante la experiencia para este caso.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Naturalmente, los editores de fotos avanzados no querrán renunciar a su Photoshop (o herramienta equivalente) a toda prisa, pero para muchos usuarios Pixlr les ofrecerá precisamente las opciones de edición rápidas e intuitivas que necesitan, y todo ello de forma gratuita o económica.

"Increible editor desde tu navegador simple y efectivo"

What do you like best?

una gran aplicación online gratuita que te permite editar fotos e imágenes. Contiene todas las herramientas básicas de estratificación y ajuste. Si se registra en el sitio, también puede guardar sus proyectos y plantillas.si no tienes acceso a photoshop, es un gran sustituto para tareas simples pero urgentes como eliminar el fondo, recortar, añadir texto o figuras. cool! su efecto "app" es muy parecido a instagram

What do you dislike?

Algunas limitaciones y ralentizaciones depende tambien de la memoria aunque no requiere muchos requisitos para una fluida utilización desde la mayoria de navegadores.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo que lo prueben ya que es gratuito y saca de muchos apuros, sobre todo emergencias de trabajo cuando te coje con otro equipo al del trabajo.

"Great for image editing and special effects"

What do you like best?

I like how easy Pixlr is to use and it offers a wide selections of special effects to add to your images. The filters look very professional and you can tweak individual settings to get exactly what you are looking for. The interface is also very nice to work with . It is user friendly and easy to learn. Pixlr also makes it easy to upload your final images to different social media sites.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that you can not transform individual elements of your images. You also can not edit or manipulate objects once you insert them into your project. A lot of the free features require that you make an account which can be slightly annoying. I also do not like that you can not add filters or transform pieces of an image. When you add a filter it is only applied to the full image.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pixlr is free and easy to try. i would recommend anyone looking for a simple special effect/filter software to give it a try.

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

I use Pixlr for image editing, manipulations and finale special effects. Pixlr makes these task very simple.

"The only/best free cloud version of Photoshop I can find"

What do you like best?

If I'm ever on a computer that doesn't have Photoshop, or PS is being buggy on my computer, I always turn to Pixlr. It's saved my butt on multiple occasions. Even between years of use, it's earned a permanent spot in the back of my mind to use when the occasion requires. Obviously it doesn't have every feature of Photoshop, but I haven't yet *needed* something that wasn't available on Pixlr. Keyboard shortcut support and the ability to use layers are among my favorite features and things I wasn't expecting. I also like that I can open images from a URL. It makes sense because it's a cloud editor and I shouldn't have to save an image to my computer first.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, really. It takes me a little bit longer to complete tasks but that's only because I only need it for emergency situations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best Photoshop-alternate cloud solution.

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

It's a lightweight tool I can pull up and use on any computer for quick edits instead of having to wait for PS or be stuck unable to do a task for a client or coworker.

"Una propuesta accesible y flexible para diseñadores novatos"

What do you like best?

Lo que mas me gusta de Pixlr es la versatilidad del software. Puedes obtener unos buenos resultados en tus ediciones sin la necesidad de tener conocimiento profesional avanzado. De hecho sus resultados son bastante comparables con los de otros software como Photoshop o GIMP.

What do you dislike?

Como trabajadora de un departamento creativo, solemos ser muy custom, nos gusta la variedad de opciones y la posibilidad de fusionar de manera inteligente estas opciones. Con Pixlr contamos con una limitada variedad de efectos puntuales, también una corta linea de fuentes y otros aspectos que podrían trraducirse como un obstáculo en el trabajo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo ampliamente darle una oportunidad a Pixlr para ahorrar tiempo en obtener buenos resultados en tus diseños debido a su fácil manejo y versatilidad de resultados.

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

Como usuaria con poco tiempo de trabajo en el campo del diseño gráfico, debo decir que me ha sentado muy bien para aprender y establecer patrones de diseño con las cuales puedo empezar a dar forma a un trabajo gráfico. Soy feliz porque utilizo la versión online y no necesito preocuparme por descargar nada.

"This tool will make your image-editing tasks a bit painless"

What do you like best?

The first thing I really like about this software is that I can use it instantly online (so there's no need to take my laptop everywhere in order to access this tool), and there's no need to download anything. Something else I like of this tool is how easy it is to use, as you only need to click on the left icons and then see what functionalities it offers. I also must add that I'm in love with its cloning tool, which allows me to select an area to copy and then just click on my image to clone that part once and again.

What do you dislike?

I'm really forced to say that text in this tool is very hard to personalize and manipulate. As one example of this, if you type up a piece of text for your image, you cannot break it or make advance placements of it. It's also very hard to find a way to drag your text around the screen. I also would like to add that it would be a great plus if this tool had integrated rulers so that everything is symetrically placed inside the workspace.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I THINK THAT PIXLR IS A GOOD ALTERNATIVE FOR BEGINNER DESIGNERS WHO DON'T WANT TO GO THROUGH ANY TYPE OF LEARNING CURVE.

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

I can handle many of my creative and editing needs with this tool, in a very fast way, and this makes my customers happy. For example, the other day I had to design a UFO graphic for a party, and this software allowed me to make it really quickly, mainly thanks to the cloning tool, which allowed me to copy and paste many starts for the background of the image.

"An average but functional software for editing photos"

What do you like best?

I have used this software several times for a reason: it is simple and easy to use. I find this software useful because it allows me to add a picture I want to edit, and then select from an array of options from the right side of the screen to start my editing: for example, Pixlr has a useful eye-redness reduction that (as the name says) allows me to reduce the redness from the eyes in a picture. Also, I enjoy using the functions for blurring parts of the picture, for adding text and styles, and even for erasing certain unwanted parts. If what you're looking for is simple photo editing, then this software will work wonderfully for you.

What do you dislike?

Even though Pixlr simpleness is its strongest feature, it can be its weakest feature as well. I can see that this tool lacks many critical features for a more sophisticated editing, for example, it technically does not show any real alignment of objects and forms inside the workspace, and it also doesn't offer the ability to drag certain shapes inside the same canva workspace. Finally, the site many times blocks my flash player, which becomes a delay if you want to finish editing something quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software is a perfect match for anyone with basic editing skills.

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

I get to edit with ease any design or graphic that I need to deliver. For example, if one of my customers needs me to remove the redness for the eyes of one of his pictures, then I can easily achieve this with Pixlr. Like I said before, this will be an amazing tool for someone with basic editing needs.

"easy to use and good"

What do you like best?

simply the best tool to start in the world of design and editing, is one of the simplest programs to use, its tools and elements are easy to learn so you can edit photos quickly and easily

What do you dislike?

To be an image editor that competes with other programs you need many more tools, elements and options of editing, currently it is very good but at the same time very simple, it has very simple tools that do the job but leave much to be desired

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are learning or want to learn to edit photos, this is the right program to start, quite simple, with simple elements and tools that will help you to advance in this area and give you the necessary knowledge to reach a next level as editor

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

In my learning and initiation in the design, this program was very helpful to start familiarizing myself with everything that is editing tools, layers, brushes, and elements of a bit more advanced programs, it was like the first step or the base.

"Edit photographs and images the smart way"

What do you like best?

Something that comes to my mind when I think about the best features of this tool is its easiness to use: I'm thrilled at how easy it's to add and edit an image, cause it's just a matter of opening your favorite image, and then you can add more focus to the picture, stylish pieces of text, crop and delete any part of the same image, and even add many shapes and figures, and all of this by only selecting any of these options from the user panel. The sweetest part is that you can download or share anything you make with Pixlr.

What do you dislike?

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about the things I don't like of Pixlr is that many of the options that are offered to users are limited to the image you use. What I want to say is that when you open a white work space, everything works beautifully. However, when you bring an image you started somewhere else, yo're limited by added or omitted layers, and this "limitation" I find on Pixlr can make very difficul your task.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When you require a quick edit or fix for an image, without having to spend hours in front of your screen, the best online tool to use is Pixlr.

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

As I work on the audio and video industry (in music), and I often get petitions from my buyers to make or edit a CD cover or a brochure they want. And this task becomes easier when Pixlr is there to help me, because I can quickly edit tons of images for my buyers, and also create new ones. This would be harder if Pixlr wasn't by my side.

"PIXLR IS A MORE SOPHISTICATED (AND USEFUL) VERSION OF MICROSOFT PAINT"

What do you like best?

I have to say that I´ve been a heavy user of Pixlr because of it´s a very friendly and helpful tool. The first enjoy from using Pixlr is its cloning feautre: this feature lets me copy and paste in a stylish blurred manner any part of my image I select, and I can paste this cloned portion of my image as many times as I want to. I like too that in order to add many stylish font styles you just have to click on the "letter symbol" and then you can choose from a wide variety of pretty font styles.

What do you dislike?

One thing that gets to be a bit tacky about Pixlr is that it shows ads when you use it, but I also understand that this is one of the ways that the enterprise makes money. Another thing that I dislike is that this online software don´t include any type of ruler, and the lack of this feature can make your images less professional, because you don´t get a guide that shows you that your drawings, illustrations, text, etc., are well-centered.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With Pixlr, you´ll get a very decent software that will allow you to create nice and decent images, and also do basic editing and a bit more. But it lacks a ruler to keep your images centered and organized :(

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

Pixlr gives me the ability to edit and create any type of graphics: for example, in order to keep my home business organized, I create images that relate to a certain area of my business with Pixlr and then I print it and paste it over the folder that contains that information, and this has saved me time and money. I also use Pixlr to make stickers and sell them online.

"If you want help to make or edit images, then you should use PIXLR"

What do you like best?

I´ve been using Pixlr for quite a long time, and it´s been a really helpful too. I DO love that it´s so easy to add an image so that you can start editing; I also love that adding extra features such as adding text, erasing some parts of the design, and even soften the "intensity" for the image is as easy as clicking on the icon for it and start adding the feature. Pixlr has allowed me to edit many images for my independent work in a few minutes (and I think it would have taken more time if I had used different tools).

What do you dislike?

One of the complaints I have agains Pixlr is that it offers a very limited selection of font styles: because many people use this tool, I think that the Pixlr owners should add a bit more variety for their font styles. I can also say that I don´t like that when I use the cropping tool, at times it doesn´t really crop the part I selected and it shows an additional working area that wasn´t there before (this has happened to me a few times).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pixlr is like a simplified version of Photoshop. So if you´re looking for something that´s easier to use, then you can pick this online software.

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

Pixlr allows me to come up with graphic designs that I can sell to people looking for eye-catching images. What I want to say is this: many people come to me and tell me if I can sell them some nice images as the ones I have on my profile and covers, and I´m happy to spend a few minutes doing something that I like (making images for those people) and then them the images they were looking for a nice monetary reward. All of this is thanks to Pixlr.

"Editor web gratis y efectivo para usar en cualquier PC"

What do you like best?

La sencillez de uso y poder usarlo en cualquier pc cuando no se tiene a mano ningun programa profesional como photoshop, incluye muchas herramientas para poder realizar trabajos de diseño gráfico y edicion mas modestos y urgentes.

What do you dislike?

A veces al ser por navegador puede tener algo de lentitud al aplicar algunas opciones, aunque ya existe tambien en version app, a pesar de estas limitaciones es gratuito y funciona correctamente.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo probarlo ya que es gratuito y no decepcionara, es una gran herramienta para diseños de emergencia cuando no disponemos de mejor software en el pc que estemos usando

"Pixlr is a simple tool that will help you come up with some beautiful designs and thumbnails"

What do you like best?

Pixlr is a simple tool that has saved me many times when I try to create some cool designs and even thumbnails for my videos on Vimeo. A really cool Pixlr feature that I really enjoy is its left panel, which has many tiny illustrations that enable me to add text, add background color, erase, zoom in and out, as well as crop my image to become the size I want it to be. All of these features are super easy to use, so , virtually, there´s no learning curve! In summary, Pixlr is a tool that´s super easy to use.

What do you dislike?

A feature that´s not so cool about Pixlr is that it doesn´t offer a tool to resize your image in an easy way (and some other services of this kind offer this type of tool). Also, another feature that´s not so great is that if you use the layer option for your image, it isn´t as sophisticated as Adobe Photoshop´s. But in summary, Pixlr is a great free tool that will help you design amazing things.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a nice and versatile tool for creating some cool designs and thumbnails. But let´s face it, it´s no Photoshop. If you´re looking for a tool that´s a lot more versatile and professional, then I suggest you get Photoshop or something similar.

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

I can design my own thumbnails for videos that I use to earn a bit of extra income. Moreover, I can design my business and presentation cards so that people think I´m a professional freelancer and buy services from me. I think that the designs you show to your customers will define if you look like a professional or like an amateur.

"Great free editor for those needing a little more"

What do you like best?

Pixlr has just enough of what I need for editing and creating images. It's not overly complicated and it's FREE.

What do you dislike?

There are a handful of glitches. Currently, text sizing is an issue (was not before). I think they're attempting to fix a problem where the text was displaying incorrectly when set at certain zoom %s .... but now sizing in general has a glitch. It's also limited in drawing capabilities and certain features that seem to be available in their other simpler programs. (Why not make them available in one place?)

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is perfect if you need something more than Paint or your basic editor, but a big step down if you're looking for photoshop. But it's FREE!

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

Photos/art for social media, t-shirts and advertising are a big part of my job. I use Pixlr for just about every task.

"I use Pixlr as a free photo editor for a my high school students to learn basic techniques."

What do you like best?

I really like that this program is has a web-based editor, and integrates well with Google Drive. Especially on a Chromebook.

What do you dislike?

There isn't a lot that I dislike about this program. That's because I don't expect any more from it than the creators advertise. If I had to pick on something, it would have to be that a lot of functions are hidden and it is sometimes difficult to figure out how to complete simple tasks such as locking and unlocking layers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pixlr has both web-based and desktop applications. Depending on the user's desired features they should make a choice as to which version they want to utilize.

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

With Pixlr I am able to teach numerous students basic photo editing skills and techniques. I am able to expand the creative element to my assignments and expose students to job options that aren't normally taught in traditional classrooms at no extra cost

"Editor de imágenes vía web"

What do you like best?

Tiene muchas de las funcionalidades que ya conocemos de los programas líderes en el ramo, y es una herramienta gratuita. Incluso abre los formatos PSD conservando las capas, opacidad y otras características. Permite manejar máscaras, filtros, ajustes avanzados a las imágenes. Funciona a través del navegador web, con el plugin de Flash. El guardado tiene integración en la nube, además de que permite guardar en distintos formatos.

What do you dislike?

No tiene soporte para uso con tabletas gráficas. Y la herramienta difuminar no esta funcionando como esperaba. Podría mejorarse la interfaz para manejo de pinceles, ya que requiere varios pasos. A pesar de que puede abrir formato PSD, no permite guardar en ese mismo formato.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es una gran opción al uso de Adobe Photoshop, y gratuito, con muchas funcionalidades útiles.

"Great cloud-based photo editor"

What do you like best?

It's accessible wherever I need it to be. I don't always have access to a device with similar products like Photoshop installed, so this makes it easy for me to crop, resize, and create graphics on the go.

What do you dislike?

Because it's web-based it's not as robust as other programs, and can be somewhat clunky to use at times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have basic photo editing needs, this is a great option without having to spend as much as you would for similar products like Photoshop. It's also easy to access while on the go, or for people who aren't well-versed in photo editing software.

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

Having to make web and social media edits and posts on the go is so much easier having Pixlr available to make those adjustments.

"This tool makes my life much more easier"

What do you like best?

- It is great for small/medium enterprises

- Really easy to setup

- This program offers everything I need, and the best part is, even a regular picture become a professional look a like picture

What do you dislike?

I think they could add more features to this software and the need of internet use really bothers me, and as a design business, Pixlr should have a better visual presentation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it guys, free, easy to use, a well done app, met the expectations for small projects

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

"Pro Imaging Software - no matter where you are "

What do you like best?

Pixlr.com allows professional image manipulation on any computer (independent from operating system and installed software). One only needs a working internet connection - so even a free WiFi network in a coffee bar at the end of the world will be enough. One feels immediately familiar with the menu structure as Pixlr is very much "Photoshop-style"

What do you dislike?

There is not much to say here. A few more recent .RAW-files of actual camera models would be nice. But .DNG conversion before opening is always a good workaround.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We are talking about a free software package. You only need a working internet connection. What are you waiting for? Give it a try.

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

Working "on the fly" without having my full kit of computing gear with me on any computer I have at hand and still being able to deliver professional final images.

"easy to use"

What do you like best?

It is a program that has ease of use, its tools are easy to learn and this makes the program suitable for all kinds of people, the editions made with this program have very good quality and serve different purposes, it is really a good program .

What do you dislike?

Many of their tools are similar to other programs, I think they should try to create something new and innovative that characterize them and thus attract the attention of many more clients.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have the opportunity to use it, do it, it is really an excellent design and editing tool very easy to use

Lo uso cuando no tengo programas como photoshop en pc, es una solución basada en web que hace todo lo que necesito. Incluso contiene herramientas utiles que tambien usa photoshop, lo que hace que la experiencia de aprenderlo es muy sencilla.

What do you dislike?

Algunos problemas por lag del navegador en alguna edición pero por lo general suele ir fluido.

"Magnifico editor Gratis web"

What do you like best?

Lo recomiendo más que el photoshop hasta cierto punto. La mejor parte del sitio web es a Al visitar el sitio por primera vez, puede empezar a editar su imagen sin necesidad de registrar una cuenta o instalar un solo plugin. La aplicación está programada usando Flash y tiene una gama de funcionalidades que vería en un programa caro de venta al por menor.

What do you dislike?

Hay solo caracteristicas desbloqueadas cuando estas registrado, el zoom a veces es poco preciso

Recommendations to others considering the product

Lo recomiendo a los estudiantes que necesitan trabajar en tareas de edición de fotos fuera de la escuela.Con Pixlr pueden hacer algo de edición de imágenes y ademas gratuito en sus pc o portatiles domesticos sin ningun coste adicional.

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

Pixlr es una aplicación basada en flash que puede ser utilizada a través de un navegador web. Asi que cualquier persona que utilice un sistema informático compatible con flash e Internet puede utilizar la aplicación. Esto hace que la aplicación sea realmente accesible y util como editor.

"Pixlr is very easy to use"

What do you like best?

I like the large amount of good quality special effects that pixlr offers. The interface is very easy to learn. Pixlr also supports many different file types, so it is easy to upload and transfer pictures. The effects and image processor runs very smoothly.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the fact that you can limit effects or filters to s specific area of the image. I wish the program offered more brushes, or the way to customize the brushes that they offer. I also wish they had a way to preview the fonts better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pixlr is free and it is a good software for anyone looking to add special effects to their images.

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

We use Pixlr for adding special effect and manipulations to our graphic design images.

"A Decent Cloud Based Photo Editor"

What do you like best?

Obviously the best thing about Pixlr is the price; it's free. There is an extremely inexpensive pro version, at least for the time being it's more inexpensive. The layout for pro is a bit more familiar, and you get a little more space to work with as pro removes all of the ads that tile down the side of your work space on the free version. All of my shortcut keys, again, familiar to other pay software I've used in the past.

What do you dislike?

The nature of Pixlr being could based, or browser based if you prefer is on some level inefficient.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Others are probably using something like Pixlr for the same reason as me - your professional image editing software license expired, and I was looking for something for personal and professional use that was more friendly on the wallet and still functioned like professional software. Pixlr solved that problem for me, it works really well on my Chromebook.

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

The elephant in the room here is why use Pixlr instead of your industry standard. For one thing I wanted to be able to work on my Chromebook, and Pixlr solved that problem for me. Cost is also huge here. I primarily work with small to medium sized businesses, and I do some web design work here and there for family and friends, and I can pull Pixlr up on a browser pretty much anywhere.

"Fantastic browser-based image editor!"

What do you like best?

I love that this program is available for free online through your web browser. It is very flexible and works on any computer and operating system. It has all the basic features one might need from Photoshop for quick and easy image editing on the go!

What do you dislike?

The application can be a little slow if the user has a slow internet connection, but that is not the fault of the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pixlr is fantastic for simple image edits on the go. You can use it on any computer as long as it has a solid internet connection. It is a great substitute more robust image editing software such as Adobe Photoshop or Fireworks when you don’t have access to those programs.

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

I love that this program is available online through your web browser. I have used it many times when working with a client on their computer when they do not have an image editor such as Photoshop installed on their machine. It has saved me countless hours and headaches as I am able to accomplish quick image editing tasks on the go rather than waiting until I get home to my own computer.

"Replace that Adobe Subscription with Pixlr"

What do you like best?

When all you need to do is resize or crop photos for blogs and websites, Plixlr is so much easier to use than Adobe. It absolutely doesn't have the breadth of function that Adobe products have, utmost people don't need all that. The tools are much like what you encounter in phone apps like Instagram or Snapchat, so it's super intuitive, and it requires no login or registration to use.

What do you dislike?

The ads are kind of annoying, but worth it if it's a free site!

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's so so easy to use. No one will need any training, just point them to the website.

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

Resizing or cropping photos quickly without getting someone more tech savvy like a designer or programmer involved.

What do you like best?

Super easy to learn just by exploring around. If you want, it has an undo button so it's a breeze to try new things, clear them and try something else.

What do you dislike?

The only downside is it's inability to resize a photo. However, it's a small price to pay considering it's a free app with no ads.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get it, use it, love it. Be prepared to have people how you got your photos looking so good. You'll be preaching to them soon.

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

"Best Software From Autodesk"

What do you like best?

I can fairly say this software is true and perfect with free version available you can use it and further you can unlock paid if you want . Masking stuff is not available in free version but overall the features you getting are better and great .

The best part is this tool is cross platform means it supports various OS .

Transformations are available in free version and can be used but i recommend paid version so all the options available you need

Time saving , fast and efficient , you do need to pay for courses to learn it , its so much easy to use that you can learn it in minutes .

What do you dislike?

no dislikes for this tool , i was using it for longer than 4 months but its great tool, recommended .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make More Advance Features available so that it would be in competition with other design tools. Its headed to the right direction the more fast it can be , the better flexible it would be for users .

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de este editor online es que emula la mayoría de las funciones principales de Photoshop, todo con una aplicación web. Es perfecto para cuando no puedes usar Photoshop y tienes que editar alguna imagen para tu proyecto. Además, mantiene los tamaños de los archivos y tiene muchas herramientas extra, como por ejemplo los overlays.

What do you dislike?

This is one of my favorites because i used to spend so much time doing a tricky works with my others editors, but i realize that i can get a nice editing job with a lot of posibilitys to add a long list of backgrounds and textures.

What do you dislike?

its hard to talk about Pixlr weakness, but like anything on this world, its not made to be perfect. I had a few problems with compatibilty, some formats doesn't take by, and trying to resize the images.

I bet for Pixlr to use it as a work tool, even if you don't work with photo editing and graphic design, you can try on this one and have a nice taste using it, easy to take, a nice and professional results.

What do you like best?

This app is very similar to Photoshop, with ease of use and great tools. Can jump on a web browser and get to work. Does use fonts that you have installed on your computer.

There aren't as many options for certain tools, especially the font and text options. I need more formatting options

"Grear for quick editing and minimal work needed"

What do you like best?

It's a great tool for diving in, brand new, to design. I love the tool bar and the options to add additional tools. I find it helps late in navigating larger toolbars.

What do you dislike?

Features are obviously limited and you tend to start an image and realize farther down the line that you need additional feature's to complete the piece.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use this for basic editing and then have a platform for larger products. This should never replace or take the place of editors or designers.

"Like Photoshop; but still very different"

What do you like best?

That it was online and I could access it from other sources with internet: i.e. Tablet or a public computer. The shortcuts are almost identical to Photoshop. It is quick to boot up and load since you do not need to download any software.

What do you dislike?

The selector tool is not clear and clean. I could select a letter or area and it doesn't always get it completely leaving me to go back with a brush and/or eraser to fix it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep in mind this is an online editor. It is not the same level as photoshop. Perhaps just below the threshold. However it is getting better all the time.

I can edit the more simple images and logos. While it does have its drawbacks, I still quite enjoy the ease of using this editor.

"Powerful Performance In a Small Package"

What do you like best?

There really are a lot of things I could list in this "what do you like best" section. The fact that there are SO MANY features in this app makes it an awesome app. Couple that with the fact that there is a FREE version and you CANNOT beat it. The east of use is great as well. Very intuitive and effective.

What do you dislike?

If I had to pick anything, it would probably be the updates. Not enough of them. Not enough new, unique content pushed out in comparison to some other apps. Regardless, this is not by any means, something that would prevent me from recommending to anyone.

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

Editing photos. Sharing edited photos. Being able to work on the go. Mobile / Tablet usage makes it ideal for anyone who has to travel alot and is always updating on the fly.

"Great, free replacement for Photoshop in a pinch"

What do you like best?

The thing I like best is that it emulates most of the main features of Photoshop all with a web app. If you know how to use Photoshop, but can't access it for some reason, use Pixlr.

What do you dislike?

The web app can be buggy when moving and resizing objects. As far as I can tell, there is not much support in the way of tutorials, but there are some FAQs linked from the Pixlr web app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should give Pixlr a try, especially if you need to do photo editing, but you don't want to install any software on the computer you're using. It's free and the worse that could happen is that you don't like it.

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

At work, Pixlr allows me to do minor photo editing tasks without having to buy an expensive Photoshop license.

What do you like best?

Pixlr is a great editing tool that you can use through the web for no charge. Very easy to use with easy access. Similar to Photoshop but a free version which is a plus when you don't use it enough for a payment. Pixlr is easy to use and right at your finger tips when you need it!

What do you dislike?

There is not much I don't like about Pixlr. Having more font options would be a benefit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A better variety of font options would be helpful.

"The best for learning on a budget!"

What do you like best?

That it's free!! It's a great place to start for learning since you don't have to make an investment besides your time and energy!! It's also got a surprisingly wide selection for something that is free

What do you dislike?

That it's not Photoshop haha just doesn't have the same quality and as many tools but I suppose that's why it's free!! So I don't particularly dislike anything about it because it's really as good as it gets for something completely free.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to learn Adobe Photoshop but don't have the money for the program or the subscription or maybe even your own a computer--use Pixlr to learn! It's really similar to Photoshop!

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

I have used Pixlr in cases of emergency where I didn't have access to the Adobe Creative Suite and needed to get something done asap so it's kind of an emergency backup software

Blend, overlay, and apply filters is just the beginning to this powerful tool. Create layers and mesh photos, also use Lightroom style effects to clear up any flaws. Like having a pocket suite on your phone at any given time.

What do you dislike?

Have to save each layer as an individual project and then reopen said project and carry on from there.

What do you like best?

The PIXLR browser version is really great. As an AI and PS user, I feel like there are a lot of the same tools and features offered like the Adobe products offer, but with PIXLR you get all of those tools for FREE!! That is hard to beat. My favorite too, the clone stamp, is a featured tool and it is a great tool to use when editing photos. Plus I REALLY love the App! Very easy to use, exports easily, and maintains file sizes.

There is not much in the browser version that I do not like. However, in the app, I feel like when you are trying to save the image, or if you are done editing and you are trying to exit the program, it is kind of inconvenient.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you know Photoshop, this should be fairly intuitive.

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

I use PIXLR for editing photos and screen shots when PhotoShop is not available.

"Great, full feature app with web based platform!"

What do you like best?

So so easy to use. For smaller projects and things that don't require a ton of processing power, you won't find a better or more usable photo editor. I also like that Pixlr has number of flavors for their products.

What do you dislike?

Exporting an image can be a little unwieldy, but other than that, everything works great. I would also love to see a little bit more integration with cloud services.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it! You won't find a better suite for smaller scale projects.

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

Making simple graphics on a cloud-based photo editor makes producing graphics very easy and users don't have jump through hoops that other apps require.

"Easy to Use & Free!"

What do you like best?

Pixlr App is the best I’ve used for photo editing. It’s free, very user-friendly, linkable to social media accounts, and includes unique features like fonts, overlays, and collages.

What do you dislike?

Nothing! The app even saves your last design if you exit and return days later. Did I mention it’s FREE!?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try out the app. It may take time to take advantage of all the features, but it is worth it.

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

I’m able to make photos more professional to post on social media, as well as blur faces for child confidentiality in my role for a youth sports program.

"Perfect One for Editing!"

What do you like best?

You can easily allow access to your photo gallery and upload any picture and edit it on the go. You do not require wifi at all! Easily make collages on your phone, doodle on them, edit picture using very basic tools and they also give instant results! You do not have to pay for it on the app!

What do you dislike?

I do not like the fact that I have to doodle on it when I want to use TEXT itself to make it a bit formal. Also, there should be more default effects so the image edit can just be one tap away!

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

Image editing is very easy with this app. I have come to realize that its a very easy software and for image editing, its my go to app!

"A great editor on the go"

What do you like best?

I love being able to access Pixlr to make photo edits in a browser. When I need to do a quick image resize or crop, and maybe I’m not on my machine with photoshop, this is a great intermediary.

What do you dislike?

Pixlr will never replace the power of Photoshop, but that’s not the intention. It’s great for what it can do in a browser, anywhere.

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

Being able to make edits from a work machine in a role where I didn’t have an Adobe license, this was a great alternative and I leveraged it frequently.

"Quick and User Friendly"

What do you like best?

I like the ease at which you can find your way around in Pixlr. The filters are nice, although I don't get to use them often for what I do. Pixlr is easy to learn and gets basic editing done quickly.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't anything I dislike about Pixlr at this point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a basic photo editing program that is inexpensive and easy to learn, Pixlr is perfect for you.

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

I use Pixlr to edit photos for products and style shots on our website. Pixlr makes adjusting lighting and color adjustments a breeze.

"Easy Program that meets all needs"

What do you like best?

The best part of Pixlr are its user friendly functions. These tools are presented in a organized and simple manner. This makes it easy for the user to find desired tools. Pixlr provides many options and tools that other larger software companies do, but for a fraction of the cost. Also, there is no need to download time consuming software as you may use these tools using their web application.

What do you dislike?

Pixlr has different versions of editing software. I would like if these functions weee combined into one application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use Pixlr if you are looking for an inexpensive photo editing application that offers the same tools and functions as other more expensive software.

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

I am able to edit photos for my business with a cost friendly program that enables me to cut costs and have the same editing effect. These benefits allow me to save money while achieving the same desired effect as other softwares that are more expensive.

"A great alternative to Photoshop for laypeople"

What do you like best?

It's a very low learning curve, so I can teach others in the organization simple edits like cropping, resizing, etc. without them needing to be exposed to the overwhelming options of other editing software. It's also free and available through the web, so anyone can access it.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't much to dislike. It wouldn't be my primary tool for photo editing because I am a professional graphic designer, but I consistently refer others to it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great photo editing software without downloads or fees.

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

There's a need for simple photo edits (crop, scale, resize, etc.), but it isn't heavy use and therefore doesn't require expensive and powerful software. It puts simple photo edits into the hands of the people who need to be making them in order to load into the CMS, etc.

"Pixlr's Web Editor is like a Free "Photoshop Lite""

What do you like best?

I like that there's a full suite of tools, filters and functions at my disposal, and that the content and user interface is very similar to Photoshop, which I was previously familiar with.

What do you dislike?

It's not a huge dislike, but I sometimes wish the text on the interface were a bit larger. I'm okay with small fonts, but there are times I have a hard time focusing. I also feel like the zooming has issues with certain computers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely switch! It's a cheaper alternative with equally good tools and quality results.

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

I'm able to use the web editor to develop quick branding graphics and other images as needed at no cost with great quality tools. I've also been able to improve my editing skills and learn more about graphics software.

"Free version of photoshop"

What do you like best?

This is a great software when you don't have anything installed on your laptop/computer. Easily accessble online without installing anything. Most of all, it is free.

What do you dislike?

It is simple and light. Lacks some features than photoshop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those who are looking for portable program like photoshop for free.

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

When I go to library or place where I don't have my programs installed, I can just type pixlr online and perform basic graphic design/editing without installation. Very handy and fast.

Lo que mas me gusta es que tiene una herramienta de edicion de imagenes online, y por eso es una herramienta muy versatil y accessible casi desde cualquier lugar

Un punto que pudo haberme disgustado es que al inicio de ingresar y conocer el software no existe una guia clara, es bastante dificil aprender al principio.

What do you dislike?

That sometimes I can't use it because I don't have internet access.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a job that pixlr can't accomplish, hire a designer to do it for you. For those basic jobs, Pixlr does everything you need.

"A functional alternative to Photoshop"

What do you like best?

The biggest benefit is that it's free, and it is mostly easy to use for simple photo and graphics work and editing. If you don't really need the total functionality of Photoshop or don't want to pay for it, Pixlr is a perfectly viable alternative.

What do you dislike?

The user interface isn't the best - seems very clunky. I also could never save any files to my account through the web app, which made editing graphics at a later time very tedious. Trying to work with layers, shapes or fonts is rather time consuming for the most part.

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

It's free, so if you only need to do light photo editing or make print flyers, it does the job. There's also a web app so you don't have to install any programs.

"Great for quick photo editing and improvements"

What do you like best?

It is super easy to add filters to a photo or do quick edits, such as cropping, saturation, or radial blur.

What do you dislike?

The system can, at times, feel a little clunky. As it is a web-based app, that means that you click save, and then have to click save again when the Windows dialog pops up.

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

I use it often to do light photo editing. I don't expect it to be on par with Photoshop. But for basic stuff, it is much faster than opening Photoshop.

What do you like best?

For me, I constantly need to resize photos and graphics for marketing use. The resizing tool is extremely easy to use.

What do you dislike?

For Windows, Pixlr does a great deal but it doesn't have some of features and options found in graphic design software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use to easily size photos and graphics. Do not use as a graphics solution.

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

Not having one bit of graphic design in my body, Pixlr allows me to quickly edit images and graphics with ease to use in our marketing.

"Review for Pixlr"

What do you like best?

I love using Pixlr because it is easy, free, and requires no downloading to use. I find it similar to Photoshop, where you can create images and edit photos, but with Pixlr, you can do it all online and free. It is convenient where it offers a variety of tools and a navigation bar to edit graphics using tools such as cropping, brush, smudge, and add fonts. It is also an advantage that users can import images to edit using URLs, rather than saving photos on their computer. Pixlr also offers a variety of languages and navigation tools that are similar to other photo editing softwares worth hundreds of dollars.

What do you dislike?

One thing I dislike about Pixlr is the visual presentation of the software. Yes, it is such a great application to use, but I believe that if Pixlr had a better design to it, with a more visually pleasing layout, more people would use it more. Small details like monochromatic buttons would give Pixlr a more classy feel to it. The advertisements in the corner of the application distract me sometimes. There are definitely better ways of applying ads in the application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try Pixlr out! It's free, online, and doesn't require too much effort to learn to use. Everything is straight-forward and easy to use. There's not much difference between the functionality between Pixlr and Photoshop.

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

Pixlr has helped me solved a lot of graphics design problems in the past. In companies, everyone needs licenses to obtain softwares. Because purchasing Photoshop requires a license and payment, I resorted to using Pixlr to create graphics online. It was great to use an application that is dependable, free, and accessible through any computer.

"Love the online solution"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that you can integrate photoshop's basic capabilities into the browser. Not only is this easy to use on the go or when I am in a pinch, it also allows me to be creative without being on my desktop computer. It's hard to find mobile solutions for graphic design elements and this seems to have similar capabilities to Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that there are limited options and that they don't have the vast array of filters and such like Photoshop. The 'save to web' feature doesn't have as many options as Photoshop does but it does the trick.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you use the online version just know that it doesn't have a ton of options for outputs. Not every format is supported but it supports basic jpegs and pngs for fast output.

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

There are times when I am on the go and need to do some quick graphic work and this seems to hit the mark. If I need to just erase a background, do some resizing or some quick textures, this is a great tool. It's nice and convenient to use and if you are a native Photoshop user it's easy to learn because it's very similar.

"Great free photo editor/graphic creator"

What do you like best?

The ease of use and similarity to Photoshop. Plus it is online so I can access it from any computer! They also have a mobile app that is nice.

What do you dislike?

It is missing some features that photoshop has and it is a little harder to switch between them, but that would be expected from a free service. The font library is hard to access. It is difficult to see all the fonts available by just scrolling. Can't open or edit the pxd files in photoshop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check it out. It is great to use for quick projects!

"Love Pixlr! Similar to Adobe Photoshop"

What do you like best?

There is 2 different online versions. One is similar to photoshop where you can work in layers, the other is a simple photo editing tool with quick effects, overlays, and texts. There is also an app and a desktop version!

What do you dislike?

Works best in Chrome. I have had a few difficulties when bringing up the online version and trying to save.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're used to Photoshop, give it a little time to get used to a few differences. It's perfect for light graphic design, easily removing backgrounds, creating graphics, editing images and more...and that's all only with a free account. There is more with a pro account.

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

Great for those who can't swing the price for photoshop or don't need something as robust. It's simple to learn and there are tons of tutorials. Great for graphic design!

"A very versatile editing tool"

What do you like best?

The best part about this application is that it incorporates many different features. Other applications offer a few features that it will do well. This application does all of them well! Everything from splash brush to adding overlays and double exposure, etc.

What do you dislike?

I don't like out that add on overlays effects can't be resized or moved. Also there is the issue of some features not working in portait mode like cropping to define ratios.

"Excellent In-Browser Photo Editor"

What do you like best?

I like how there are so many different tools and features that are included with this photo editor. Even for people who are just beginners at editing photos should be able to figure things out.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the layout of the program at times. The tools can be difficult to find if you don't really know what you're doing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can also download the desktop version of Pixlr which could come in handy if you're ever somewhere where internet is not available for your use.

Be sure to always save your work as you go because that feature can be a little finicky at times.

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

The business problem that can be solved is editing photos on a budget. Not all companies, especially start-ups, may have access to other software. The biggest benefit is being able to store everything online and create an account.

"Quick, easy and affordable"

What do you like best?

I really like the convenience of the desktop app. The desktop app is easy this is to use, even for someone without much photo editing experience. For most of my users who just need the ability to crop, adjust lighting and heal a blemish or red eye situation, it's perfect. I like the "fast" tools and use the "refine" section often.

What do you dislike?

The ability to only open one photo at a time is kind of a bummer. I often get sent a batch of photos that all need the same edits done, lighting, cropping etc. I dislike having to open each and save rather than opening all at once and rolling through them quickly, closing as I finish edits. When I need to do this, I often revert to using the online version, which allows this. It also allows the use of layers and more photoshop-like tools. The fast tools in the desktop version work but are difficult to refine. For instance, when using the "heal" tool, you are unable to "Undo" any single edit and instead must accept or reject all of the edits at once, so cleaning up a number of blemishes is time consuming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have users with very basic photo editing knowledge, the desktop app is a great option. More advanced users may want to use the web-based version that is more similar to Photoshop.

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

It's been great to save cost and training by avoiding purchasing full Photoshop licenses for each of our users who need basic editing abilities. The reality of our business is we need the nitty gritty for users with limited training time and attention.

What do you like best?

The UI is incredibly simple to use and has a lot of great effects.

What do you dislike?

Don't really have a lot of qualms about the software, to be honest.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just go in with the mindset of having fun. It's not a super-sophisticated editor like Photoshop and the like. It's just a fun but powerful editor that allows you add a bit of 'flare' to your photos. It's not super robust, and it really doesn't need to be because there are already other editors out there that can handle all the heavyweight stuff.

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

Sometimes I need to add a little 'pizazz' to my photos, and Pixlr helps me to do that.

"Great for editing"

What do you like best?

Pixlr gives me the flexibility to edit in various image formats such as .jpg, .gif, and png. I recommend it more than photoshop to some extent. The best part of the website is to Upon visiting the site for the first time, you can begin editing your image without registering an account or installing a single plugin. The app is programmed using Flash and has a range of functionality you would see in an expensive retail program.

What do you dislike?

Whereas, on one hand Pixlr lets me use the app without having to register for an account, I was offered personal settings and account features only if I register.

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

Pixlr is a flash-based application which can be used through a standard web-browser. This means that anyone using a flash-compatible computer system and the Internet can use the app. This makes the app really accessible.

"Pixlr description"

What do you like best?

The interface is neat and barebones. If you have used Pixlr Express or the mobile apps, the tool tiles will be familiar. The desktop GUI seems better organized than its Web counterpart. The starter edition gives you the basic tools of photo correction and manipulation. Like any good photo tool, the tools are arranged according to a logical workflow.

What do you dislike?

The lack of tutorials, informational guides, or prompts may make this app challenging .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Though there are not much tutorials it is very easy to use and you can learn fast and use it for simple editing.

It is great for those who do not have or use photoshop. It is a great app for a quick edit, I'm considering downloading the mobile version to edit my phone pictures!

It's a very simple, user-friendly interface. It takes all of the best/easiest parts of photoshop, and makes them free and accessible for small businesses and at-home users.

There's not a lot of guidance. I found myself turning to YouTube reviews and walkthroughs to learn how to do many things for the first time.

Take time to look at some tutorials. While some of Pixlr is quite intuitive, there are some things that will take some extra time to learn.

"Love Pixlr! Great tool for web based photoshop"

What do you like best?

Pixlr is fantastic! It has a few features that I really like.

1. PIXLR EXPRESS is a great filter tool for the web. It is a much more robust program than instagram and allows you to do way more with photos.

2. PIXLR EDITOR is my most favorite product of pixlr! It is amazing for editing photos quickly and easy to use. I hate Paint and don't have photoshop, but feel like this meets all of my needs.

What do you dislike?

Since it is web based if you accidentally decide to close the tab you lose all of your work.

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

It is very easy to create a quick graphic for social media by using these tools.

"Pixlr is an awesome photo editing app! "

What do you like best?

I've been using Pixlr for a few years and I have to say that it's probably the easiest to use. There are SO many choices to choose from as far as filters, frames, lighting, etc. If you don't want to spend a lot of time trying to edit photos yourself, choosing those presets are the way to go!

What do you dislike?

I kinda wish they kept the original Pixlr program the way it was. They have updated it a few times over the years and I feel like why change something that's great already? The updates weren't really necessary.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great photo editing software for everyone to use!!

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

None. I design pools and after construction, I take pics of the pools and edit them. Pixlr has been great for presentation purposes and super easy to use!

"Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

I love that I can access it both on the desktop and on mobile. It's a quick and easy way to improve photos on the fly. I appreciate that it's free and am fine with the ads as they are not obnoxious and in the way. "Crop" is quick and easy. "Focal" is a great way to highlight your subject matter in a way that is either obvious or gently guiding the viewing eye to one location. "Auto Fix" works quite well most of the time.

What do you dislike?

I wish removing background clutter were simpler on Express. I don't really see much of a need for the brightness tool. I wish that the "heal" option didn't look like a blur blob but rather was a bit more intuitive in filling in - but not grabbing background from outside of the circle. I've used "heal" on a background and it ends up looking like an abstract painting - which has pros and cons. I cannot get the "eraser" function to work at all whether it's mobile or desktop. I wish "resize" showed the results without having to hit "apply". The "airbrush" feature? Doesn't really seem to do anything. Sometimes "auto fix" strips colors too much and leaves the photo looking cold.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's not an end all and be all for photo editing but it's quite easy for the non-professional to use on the fly with pretty darn good results. I've recommended it to others. Creates cleaner, easier to view photos for social media, website, etc use.

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

Improving photos for social media. It's very helpful to have the ability to alter photos on the fly. It's also helpful to have the same software that any one of my co-administrators can use, whether it's desktop or mobile.

"Great Substitute for High-End Expensive Photo Editing Software"

What do you like best?

That it allows me to do the same things I used Photoshop for. Perhaps, it's not what a high-end graphic designer would want to use but for basic and even more photos, graphics, etc, it fits the bill.

What do you dislike?

You can't do huge pieces on it. The font size for most goes only up to a certain size.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's not Photoshop but is getting near there.

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

It allows me to do photo-editing and basic graphic, logo, web design. It has helped me do my job.

"I use Pixlr for fun sometimes"

What do you like best?

I like that the layout is very similar to Photoshop (when using the basic editor). I also enjoy their photo effects when using the Express editor.

What do you dislike?

It can be a bit clunky, since it's running on Flash. Sometimes graphics load choppy. They need a bit more user-friendly interface for the front page.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pixlr has a lot of options for creativity. I mostly use Pixlr Express for their overlays and pre-made effects when I want a quick and dirty photo effect.

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

I mostly use this app for when I am wanting certain effects.

"Fantastic with ease of access"

What do you like best?

I like that there is a Web editor that I can use without having to actually download a program to my computer or run it as an extension in my Google Chrome Web browser.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike anything about it, I feel it's great

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

It can be hard to edit some graphics if they were previously in a photoshop format but other than that none really. The benefits are that it's easy to get everyone train on how to use the different features because it's available as a Web program.
