Pixlr - awesome photo editing application




www.pixlr.com

Pixlr is a robust application that can be used via web, or downloaded app to your computer or phone/tablet. It is constantly updating with many options for tweaking photos and adding various effects. In this example, we will be looking at some bare bones easy to use basics of Pixlr to do basic photo editing. I find it much easier than any other free applications with more options for creativity as well.

In this video** example, follow the steps to easily:

1. Crop photo (or increase size)
2. Adjust levels/color
3. Add text with color

For more creativity, try pixlr-o-matic from the home page for various tinting, borders, and wild effects.
