Online Image Editing

If you don’t have Photoshop and need to quickly edit some photos for your site, Pixlr is your new best friend.

Many WordPress themes work best with featured images that are cropped to a specific size. But images we’ve shot or found online often need a bit of editing before they’re ready for upload.

Pixlr has very easy to use tools that perform quite efficiently within the browser. They’ve also got a desktop app that has tens of thousands of effect combinations if you want to go crazy.

The best part? FREE.

So, to edit your photos for headers, featured images, icons or more, check out Pixlr – the next best thing to having Photoshop.

    Hi There!

    My name is Mateo and I’m part of the team behind Canva. I chanced upon your site and saw your recent article:

    I noticed you linked to a number of photoshop alternatives and wondered if you could possibly include us ( in the article as well?

    Canva is a relatively young design startup that already has 1.8 million users worldwide – and it’s growing fast. A lot of people have found it useful and I thought your readers might enjoy it too. :)

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

    Thanks for your time!
