Pixlr, developers of a suite of photo-editing applications, have just released Pixlr Express for Android. The objective? Provide super-simple photo editing to the masses. It’s easy to perform not only basic adjustments like cropping, saturation modification, and brightness altering, but also more advanced features. Want to add a color splash effect? It’s very easy with the drag and drop tool. Add in a focal blur, or just basic blurring. Add whitening or red eye reduction. Or just hit the auto fix button and watch picture quality improve…maybe!
And of course, because this is 2012 and everyone wants in on the Instagram filtered photo craze, there’s a variety of effects, overlays, and borders that can be applied. While Instagram’s appeal is that they make it simple to do such things, Pixlr Express offers advanced options and more options to alter images than Instagram does, including more filters, special effects to make photos look like they’re water-stained or have lighting effects on them, and additional frames. Individual components and effect instensity can also be modified. Photos can be easily exported to Instagram through the sharing option in the upper right corner.
