Phixr is a free online photo editor, a tool for editing your photos in your web browser. It has all the basic and advanced photo editing features you'd ever require, plus many fun ones, like adding text or clipart, adding speech-bubbles, and many more. Phixr offers hundreds of high-quality filters, effects and other unique features.
Phixr is handy for desktops, tablets or camera phones (like the iPhone) or the iPad: Upload your photo (or fetch it from one of many supported other web platforms), edit it to your liking, and send it on its way to friends, family or one of the many supported photo sharing/storage sites. You can even upload it to your WordPress.com image library, for direct access in your blog.
Phixr's tool palette is nearly limitless: Of course, it features basic tools like resize (shrink, enlarge), crop, rotate and flip (mirror). The crop tool also includes an avatar generator. Phixr's advanced tools, on the other hand, include professional high-quality color and levels correction, color balance adjustment, and a red eye remover, just to name a few.
Color Filters and Camera & Lens Tools
Phixr Online Photo Editor can manipulate photo colors in incredibly many ways. The real fun are Phixr's 60+ color filters and 60+ camera & lens filters. While the color filters deal with colors only (including auto-correcting contrast, white-balance and color balance), the latter modify not only colors but also other characteristics; Phixr can create tilt-shift or lomography effects, add a center focus or a vignette, and combine color and lens filters creating truely unique effects with only one or two clicks. For the advanced, there is of course a tool for correcting brightness, exposure, contrast, shadows & highlights, temperature, saturation, vibrance and hue, and a color balance and a histogram-based levels tool.
The text tool is one of Phixr's most powerful features. You can choose from nearly 200 high quality fonts, and there is something for everybody and every occasion. Text can be rotated, mirrored and placed freely inside the photo. Furthermore, you can add shadows and bevels to make your text look three-dimensional. There is also a meme generator in order to quickly add funny quotes to photos.
Among those are tools to create HDR images (using unsharp masks), remove color noise ("despeckle") or soften and sharpen photos. You can add objects (icons; think smilies, flowers, etc.), borders and textures (overlays), of which there are hundreds to choose from. Phixr's fun effects include comic creation, charcoal drawing, spray painting filters and what not. Phixr can even geotag your photos.
When you are done editing, you can save your photo in various formats. You can also print the photo, or upload it to a photo sharing site of your choice.
