Even though I'm always ribbing on people who filter the crap out of their photos in a desperate attempt to be artsy, I can't deny the allure of photo editing. Pixlr Express is one of the alluring photo editors that makes adjusting images fun. Its design is also clean and easy on the eyes, which is more than I can say for other ad-ridden editing apps out there.
Pixlr (formerly Pixlr Express) is a fun and powerful photo editor that lets you quickly crop, rotate, and fine-tune any picture, all in a completely ad-free experience. Choose from over 2 million combinations of free effects, overlays, and borders to further personalize your image. Pixlr makes you look like a pro, even if you’ve never edited a photo before.
