Pixlr-o-matic is a great photo editing app that includes three separate customization options.
The functionally of Pixlr-o-matic is very simple. Taking photos from existing galleries or newly shot photos, Pixlr-o-matic allows users to apply three separate overlays. The result is a customized image that can fit many different moods.
Each of the three options – film effects, lighting, and borders - can easily change the theme and tone of the image. So while the stock image is great, the effects in Pixlr-o-matic add more personalization to the image. Each of the three options can be added in any order so it is simple to experiment.
Film Effect in Pixlr-o-matic changes the image the most. It can drastically change the color balance and even degrade the image. There are many options with film effects, but some of the differences are so minute it might not be easily noticeable until users look at the final image.
Lighting will overlay an effect over the image. It does not alter the image like film effect. Some of the options in lighting can obscure the image, and many of the different selections create a lot of noise. The best images for lighting in Pixlr-o-matic are landscape or static images rather than portraits of people.
The last effect is the border. Pixlr-o-matic again includes a lot of options. Purely superficial, some of the border effects will crop the image to fit the chosen order. There are many recognizable borders like adding a photo album tab style, but other options are a bit more artistic. It really is the final step in the customization of an image in Pixlr-o-matic.
Pixlr-o-matic is a fun photo editing app for casual users. While Pixlr-o-matic only allows users to select one of each option at a time, completed images can be imported again into Pixlr-o-matic for an additional layer of customization.
Pixlr-o-matic is a great app for photophiles, especially ones who like customized images.
