This online photo editing web app lets you crop, resize and alter your images right from your browser. Pixlr lets you Photoshop like the pros without any cumbersome downloads.
Two editors in one
You can pick from one of two exclusive online photo editor apps. Pixlr X is a basic editor, with features like changing image properties, resizing, cropping, background removal, colour adjustments, filters, and effects. Pixlr E offers more comprehensive, Photoshop-like features.
The editor incorporates a seamless interface, which might be very familiar to anyone who has handled image editors. Those lacking experience will have no issue figuring things out, with helpful pop-ups explaining every tool. Each tool has a keyboard shortcut for easy access.
Despite its unassuming interface, Pixlr is a very powerful editor. With just a few clicks, you'll be able to fine-tune dozens of settings. You can use AI-powered cutout tools to remove backgrounds, or take control with manual selection tools. Blur, smooth and sharpen at will.
For more seasoned designers, the app provides professional-quality features, like layers and history control. The advanced interface would fit seamlessly in full editors like GIMP or Photoshop. It also looks far more polished than online photo editors like Photopea.
The app is fully compatible with a range of essential professional file formats. From PDS, AI and EPS files to raw image data, Pixlr fits perfectly into graphic design workflows. With sufficient mastery, it can outright replace software-based editors for some usage cases.
Many of the most interesting and powerful features in the app are locked behind a paywall. Only premium users can use the AI-powered background cutout feature, for instance. Premium access is competitively priced, with monthly or yearly subscriptions and two service tiers.
Full-featured online photo editor
Pixlr offers a very thorough range of features and tools for editing images directly from your browser. It packs a punch comparable with the likes of Photoshop or GIMP, without any downloading or installing. It's fit for everything, from simple effects to full-blown airbrushing.
