Pixlr, a perfect app to edit creative photos

A large mass of users consider it the best, for various reasons. We are facing a light app, with minimalist design that makes it easy to use, but does not give up a wide range of editing tools. It is true that it does not reach the technical levels of other editors such as Photoshop, but it perfectly fulfills what is required on a smartphone.

Everything to edit your photos at your fingertips with Pixlr

As we say, the app has multiple editions. We have the possibility of taking pictures from its own interface, thanks to the camera that it integrates and in which effects can be applied at the same time, which saves us the step of retouching it later, although on the other hand, we have the gallery to import photos from there.

Regardless of the method, with the image already chosen, we proceed to the most powerful section of the app. First, we find the Tools, with such worthy functions as blurring, smoothing, correction performed automatically by the program. We also find double exposure, which allows an image to be superimposed on the one we had already selected before. Or the presentation mode, in which we can highlight certain ranges of colors in the image, keeping the rest in black and white.

If we continue exploring, we see a section called Brushes, which is not only used to draw doodles, but to apply pixelation or darkening effects. We also have effects available, with different range of colors and styles, and finally, we could not leave behind the eternal frames in the photographs.

Templates and collage when creativity does not come

It may be the case of not knowing how to focus a photograph so that it is as good as possible, that is why the app offers us different templates with a marked cartoon style or exotic background landscapes, in which we can insert the photos that are automatically Fits the size of the model, as seen below.

As to collage, the number of types to combine the images is immense. Being able to add up to 10 files at a time, which we can adjust in size, scale, border or background color to our liking.

Pixlr conclusion

What we extract from this app is that it is not adapted for all kinds of uses. In other words, and as we have already said in the introduction, certain more advanced photo retouching functions are missing, functions that we do find in Photoshop or Snapseed. However, for a more basic use it is a perfect program, since in a synthesized way it offers a great variety of options, especially designed to upload creative content to social networks, such as Facebook or Instagram.
