Powerful, fully featured online image editor

Pixlr Editor is a gorgeous online photo editor that lets you create and edit images as if you were working on Photoshop.

Yes, there's an online version of Photoshop, but Pixlr Editor is just as powerful –and in our humble opinion, it features a nicer interface. Right after launching it on your web browser, you'll start noticing similarities between Pixlr Editor and Adobe's popular flagship: support for layers and masks, floating menus for tools and options, real-time preview, powerful selecting tools and what’s more, an impressive selection of filters and effects.

Pixlr Editor works with images imported from the hard drive, a website or an online gallery (Facebook, Picasa, Flickr and more). You can also create an image from scratch and work on it with the app's drawing tools. You have the possibility to open multiple images at the same time, though it considerably slows the tool down.

Another interesting feature in Pixlr Editor is its collection of special one-click effects, such as HDR, tilt-shift and kaleidoscope, among others.

If you need to edit an image and don't have Photoshop installed, Pixlr Editor is an excellent choice… and it runs in your browser!
