Pixlr

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but it seems like every free, easy-to-use image editor has gone under. First, it was Picnick, now Aviary. I think I should stop posting about them, because as soon as I do a writeup, they go away. So let’s all keep our fingers crossed that Pixlr is here to stay!

Pixlr is a simple, web-based photo editor that allows you to add cool filters, frames, and effects to your pictures and photos. Using their free Open Pixlr Express, I was able to turn this familiar photo of Crocker:

into a cool, vintage-looking one (complete with coffee stain):

It’s a pretty fun tool to play around with.
