You want that picture you put up on Facebook and Twitter to grab eyeballs? Want to spruce up those tired old pictures? Don’t know how to swing it in photo-editing apps like Coral and Photoshop? Here’s a secret: You don’t have to know how!
If you want to graphically modify your pictures using some insane textures, psychedelic effects and fascinating patterns, get your tushie over to the pixlr site and use that pixlr o-matic photo editor.
They offer you a crazy number of effects that you can mix and match to pretty up that picture. You can choose from special effects, textures and borders using the 3 pronged meter given at the bottom. And you don’t need to mess around with percentages, numbers and bars and the other paraphernalia typical of photo editing software. Just click on the effects on the panel below the picture and your image is edited to that style.
The best part is you don’t have to keep re-opening the image to get rid of all the effects in case you want to scrap the changes and start over. The original remains unchanged until you hit the Save button. A really useful feature for novices.
Since Pixlr o-matic is a web-based photo editor app, you don’t have to download anything before you start. Once you’ve drummed up the perfect picture, just hit the Save button and it’s ready to use.
So start editing those pictures here.
