Pixlr Photo Editor Sample - Space

Thank you to fellow PP member, Kasman , I went to check out Pixlr, another photo editor. I downloaded the free version, so this does not have the really high end effects available on it, but there are a few fun ones! It's fairly intuitive and easy to use (well, at the basic level anyway!).

This is one of my own images of a local flower. I loaded it into Pixlr and chose editing option "Overlay", and the subcategory "Space".

Under "Space" you will find a pretty good selection of various galaxy styles to choose from that you can experiment with overlaying onto your photo. My example isn't that clear because you can really only see the effect through the bottom of the picture, but I can see this effect making really neat images. Happy photo editing!

Pixlr Editor is available as a free app with the Chrome browser and it is ideal for me since my requirements from a photo editing program are quite basic - mainly adding text and the odd effect. I have found that programs like Photoshop and Gimp are waaaay too complex for my needs and I am not willing to invest time in learning how to use them to their full extent. My computer also has a pretty good photo editing program resident on it (handed down from my daughter) which fits my needs quite nicely.

That's a lovely photo of the flowers

Only if the photo before editing also is here alongside the edited one can we see the difference.Will try Pixlr and see how it goes.

It sounds like a useful tool. I'll have to check it out! Pinning this for other writers to find emoticon :smile:

I love playing with photo and desktop publishing programs. I don't have a lot of time at present but they are one of my favourite ways of relaxing.

Interesting. I'd like to find the ultimate image editor program: FREE, Super-Powerful, SIMPLE (for Dummies).

I agree that there are many other possibilities out there without having to use Photoshop, thank goodness!

Some local chrysanthemums from my area!

Good point, next time I'll remember to combine before and after into one image.

Oh, thanks! Some things work better for some than others so this could be the thing for someone.

I know, I live at my computer these days which is awful and have to force myself to go out for walks, etc.!

With the continuous development of everything, this is likely to happen!
