Autodesk, the Computer Aided Design (CAD) company who, gave us Pixlr-o-matic a while back, have come up with Pixlr Express. They also have a free PC version Pixlr-o-matic which can give you and the family lots of fun.
Pixlr Express is a fun and free photo editor that lets you quickly crop, resize, and fix any picture, remove red-eye, and whiten teeth. Then choose from more than 600 effects, overlays, and borders to personalize any image—all for free. From the makers of Pixlr-o-matic, Pixlr Express will make you look like a pro, even if you’ve never edited a photo before.
But let’s get on with Pixlr Express
When starting the app the initial screen gives you the choice of taking a picture or choosing one from your gallery. I took one of my lab, Blaize. I decided to do a simply editing to start with. All I did was to use the default effect, add an overlay of smoke and cobal and finish with a Ink border. In all the whole process was done in 3 mins. Yes I know it’s very good but for my first try, things can only get better. With more than 600 effects, overlays, and borders to personalize any image, and the best part it’s FREE
All the filters from Pixlr-o-matic are here, plus some new ones, then you added lots of standard photo processing features. On top of that, I can overlay effects from the same effects family. And as a great finishing touch, it’s working as smooth as butter. I’m really impressed. I might delete Pixlr-o-matic one of these days, well maybe not. I expect this app to appear in “Best Of” lists soon. Great job.
