We maintain and update our own website using a template style website (Church Plant Media). CPM only offers minimal graphics for use with the templates so we have to create our own graphics for the different pages on our site. We also send out a graphics heavy weekly newsletter through the website. In addition to our website, we also use graphics each week during our service that are projected onto the screens. I use Pixlr to create all of the graphics for our organization.
  • It offers a broad range of editing options.
  • The ability to "save" your work history within the browser but also to a file.
  • Has a large database of copyright free images for background use.
  • Has a great selection of fonts.
  • It would be fantastic if you had the option to save your entire work history at once, instead of each "project" individually. In case your web cache was cleared.
  • Add more fonts.
  • Offer more templates, other than just templates that are social media based.
If you're in a situation where you're regularly creating content for a website, social media page, or even printed materials, Pixlr is a great option! It allows you to create something simple from scratch (with just a solid background and text) or something more complex (with multiple pictures, layers, fonts, shadowing, etc.). It's our go-to method for creating content. If you're someone who isn't very tech savvy, the learning curve for using Pixlr effectively could be discouraging. The interface is intuitive, but there's a lot to it.

Pixlr is used by our organisation as a cheaper and more accessible version of photoshop. We use it to create graphics for our campaigns, as well as posters, report covers and other visual content for our work. Given that we use laptops with limited storage, we appreciate the web-based platform that Pixlr provides.
  • Enables the user to use a range of fonts even in foreign languages
  • Is relatively easy to learn
  • Is cost-effective
  • The previous version of Pixlr, albeit more basic, was a lot easier to use
  • Would be good to have pop up labels explaining what different tools are for
  • More videos and resources showing how to do the basics would be helpful
Pixlr is well suited if you need to design graphics quickly, and using foreign languages. The fact that even if you use a non-Roman script (in our case, Khmer) but can still design things beautifully, is a huge value add for our team. It is less well suited for absolute beginners to graphic design, who can find the myriad tools and functions overwhelming or confusing.

With Pixlr, we can professionally perform image retouching, employing layers, filters, saturation, contrast, filter, insert a caption, edge sharpening, overlays, and distortions, among the dozens of adjustments perfected in photographs with which you can get edits with professional effects. It has been wonderful because we have no problems with formats, supports different and facilitates understanding, strengthens our campaigns, and attracts potential customers.
  • I love Pixlr because it has a wide variety of tools to achieve high quality in editing images and photographs, most simply, saving them in different formats or sharing them directly to social networks.
  • For me, it is the best basic online image editor, with a very easy-to-understand and use interface. Something significant is that you don't need to register because it is free to use.
  • Its use is simple; you have to access their page and start testing the full range of tools offered.
  • So far, I haven't found anything I don't like in Pixlr; I like everything from its price to how it works.
I would recommend this software to anyone, either a company or a professional; it is so easy to use that anyone can use it, as its user interface is very intuitive. It is the best alternative for photo and image editing.
