Softonic review

Beautiful photos in only 3 steps

Pixlr-o-matic is a lovely, Instagram-like application to help you make your photos into something special.

Being an AIR application, Pixlr-o-matic is really nice to look at. Photo editing is divided into three steps. Firstly, choose a filter from the options in the red section, then a secondary effect from the blue area, and finally a frame in the yellow area. You can move back and forth through these stages as often as you want, using a photo stored on your computer, or one taken directly from your webcam.

Visually, Pixlr-o-matic really impresses. The interface includes the app's workbench. The filter area is really cool, with a developing tray with fluid that ripples as you move the cursor over. It's really eye-catching, and also happens to be very easy to use - the perfect combination!

Pixlr-o-matic has limited sharing options - you can save your masterpiece to .jpg or share them on, Pixlr's own image sharing service. We would have really liked to see a little more social media sharing, or better options for customizing and tweaking your own effects, inclusions that would make it close to perfect!

For quick, free effects for your photos, Pixlr-o-matic is a great-looking option.
