On the Internet you can find countless free photo editing programs, but most of them have few functionalities, do not support many formats and may even add a watermark to the images you edit with them.
However, there are also simple to use online tools, ideal for those who do not have great knowledge of photo retouching, that allow you to obtain a professional result and for free. It is the case of Pixlr, the editor that we use at TreceBits to shape the photographs you see on our website, change the size of the images, crop them, and so on.
To use Pixlr you just have to go to their website and you can use a totally free version with all the features you need. If you wish, you can also purchase a subscription to avoid, for example, seeing ads during your editing process.
When accessing, you will be able to choose between using Pixlr E, the most advanced version of the editor, with functionalities similar to Photoshop and other expensive editing programs but extremely intuitive and easy to use, or Pixlr X, a reduced version with the main functions you will need to leave your images ready.
Both versions of Pixlr use Artificial Intelligence to make your task easier when editing your photos. You can upload any image, practically in all formats, to retouch it with its filters, add layers, include fonts … and later save it in the format you want. You can also start with a canvas from scratch and create your own compositions.
In addition, this year Pixlr has been completely renewed and has included many new features to make editing an even easier exercise and with professional results. These are some of the new features included in the new Pixlr 2021:
-Interface redesign: Now Pixlr has a much easier to use interface, with direct access to all the functionalities, recommended templates and all the projects you have already done, so that you can directly access all the functions you need.

-Practical use of Artificial Intelligence: Thanks to the use of Artificial Intelligence, you can now remove the background from any photograph up to 10 times faster, without wasting time retouching parts that have not been removed. It is a much more precise tool and you can use your images to create more striking compositions or add other backgrounds that are more attractive.
-Templates: If you want to create images and creatives from scratch, with Pixlr you will save a lot of time since it already incorporates templates adjusted, for example, to the measurements of images on social networks. Thus, if you want to create, for example, a design for an Instagram Story, you will not have to worry about the size that the image must have to be optimized, just select the template and dedicate yourself to creating the content within those established measures.
-New features: If you want to surprise with your designs, you can try two new functions in Pixlr X that are sure to attract attention. One of them is Glitch Studio, which generates variations of your photographs with artistic, retro effect, with TV interference … and many more. On the other hand, Focus Studio allows you to add patterns, gradients … to give more life to your images.
