Getting Started

So, we have colorful screen where the eye catches a huge name photo editor and English interface, as well as frame inscribed her photos of our “attractive” women. Below is the inscription: “they say, refresh Woman.” You might think that the program will find the picture, and then there are all prerequisites to consider Autodesk Pixlr application with intelligent search. Although this is just a guess, because in this window shows the last pictures.

By the way, the background of the main screen is a recently edited photos. In this case it is superimposed effect of “smearing”. Do not say anything beautiful.

Between «Autodesk Pixlr» and «Fresh» camped three categories: “Camera”, “Photo” and “Collage”. And in the upper left corner – settings. Try to dig them.


The first line select the size of the saved photos. You have three options: small, medium and large. Not very professional terminology for “professional” program, agree.

The following indicates where to save the edited and activate the “camera” and allow the use of these photo editor. At the last option, we think, put the check is not necessary.

Next, we offer to sign out of Facebook and Twitter, if you are logged in to the program through them. In my case, used Google+, so these areas are not highlighted. Well, finish setting the traditional “About”, a user agreement and a link to the official website of the developer.

As a little bit poor for a professional photo editor, and even released Autodesk. Apparently, the story of Photoshop repeated. Still not serious about eminent developers to mobile photo editing programs, and some even ask for it. Well, at least not yet asked for Autodesk and flunked in exchange advertising.


But the appetites Pixlr considerable – 91.6 MB of RAM at zero load on the processor. In this case, in terms of permits Editor just humble.

Nothing criminal, all at a minimum and to the point. Is that unrestricted access to the Internet application to anything, but it’s just a niggle.

Well, let’s go over each category separately.

Working with photos

Traditionally, we are asked to select photos from the gallery, or specify the location of the file manually. In the upper left corner is a button that allows you to manage our account, upload additional effects, as well as to share “the deed” with the company Autodesk. In front of her – cross to close the photo editing, and key to save. And before you save the image, we propose to change its size and share them on Facebook and Twitter (or send via Bluetooth and so on).

In the case of the size we can finally understand what it means “small”, “large” and “medium” – 500 x 321, 1022 x 658 and 800 x 515. If you are not satisfied with these presets, You can specify the size manually and save or jpeg, or png. This is better, and in some settings primitive small, medium and large.

Here you can find the toolbar, consisting of several categories: basic settings, effects, overlays, frames, text, stickers, where the same without them. By the way, all the buttons are pretty large size, so small screens with keenness should be no problem.

Basic Setup

We have a standard set of tools, however, piled in a heap. There are painting a-la Paint, paste the image, a set of different filters, sharpening and blurring.

All of this is configurable, works fast and does not lag. All, as in any self-respecting professional photo editor.

Not without removing” red eye “, clarification of individual sections, control light and shade, focus and coloring monochrome photos. Diameters, brush sizes and colors are set. In this case, the clarity adjusted to hurt one’s eyes. Well, fine.

Pruning is carried out as templates and manually. It is possible to rotate the image at any angle, as well as the change in mirror image. In this case, the angle can be hammered into numerical terms. For those who are too lazy to edit, Auto Correct as provided in the general sense, and with respect to the contrast.
