Pixlr for Windows brings the popular mobile app’s fast, easy, and intuitive image editing and ever-growing range of filters and effects to the Windows desktop. The changeover from handheld touchscreen controls to keyboard, mouse, and pen preserves much of the functionality and feel that made the app popular.
Familiar face: Pixlr for Windows looks a lot like the app, so it’s easy to learn if you’re familiar with Pixlr in its other forms. Beginners will find its app-derived features easy to learn, too.
Translates: Pixlr’s well-developed features and functionality translate well to the big screen.
User guide and support: A user guide, blog, website, and user community augment Pixlr’s support options.
No clone: Pixlr for Windows does a lot but lacks some features and options found in many desktop graphics solutions.
Reverse engineering: Despite Pixlr’s app-derived features, you might find the desktop version too similar to Photoshop et al to justify its somewhat smaller feature set. Others could find it too different.
While Pixlr for Windows lacks the full array of features and tools found in the major programs, it’s far more capable yet just as easy to use as the stripped-down utilities.
