The Good:

Clear menu's. Ability to uplaod your photo's from different sources (weblinks, facebook, libarary on your laptop)

The Bad:

The options of photo editing are very limited and the quality of the images don't turn out great.

The Bottomline:

If you want to do some crazy and fun editing this is your tool. But not if you really want to improve the quality of your photo's.

    The user interface:

    Everything speaks for itself, the interface is not hard to understand. However it was in dutch and I couldn't find a setting to change the language.

    Tutorials / Instructions:

  • useful / helpful : 3
  • clear : 5
  • quick and easy to understand : 5

    What notable things do other users say about this tool? (either good or bad!) No support or user groups. Short on tutorials, however, if you read Pixlr's blog you will find more information about how to get the most out of Pixlr. I love the Pixlr Express tool. It has a variety of one-click changes that are fun and fast and a great choice for beginning editors.
