When Pixlr loves my stuff, my love for photo art is renewed

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Hey all! I am still away on holiday with my loved ones, and that means this is a scheduled post.

Today's post is about my passion for taking photos and manipulating or editing them.

Ever since I was in college, I always loved taking photos and I started my interest in photo manipulation when I picked up Basic to Photoshop from my lecturer. But after awhile, I grew out of it, because there was a lot of advance knowledge that I didn't get to learn and photo editing on Photoshop became difficult for me. Eventually, I forgot about photo editing, and just stayed on with taking photos.

When technology evolved, and then came android, I was excited that I could take photos with my phone. Then I realized that I could edit my photos on my phone. So, I started downloading all kinds of photo editing apps but non had good features until I discovered Pixlr! I just went nuts and started taking photos with Pixlr-O-matic. I fell in love with it because of its cute "film" camera feature (and sound effects).

Then I discovered Pixlr Express; it's like photoshop but a phone version. I started to transform and manipulate all my photos on my phone; I could do it on the go.

As a blogger, I also have to edit photos on the computer, but I realized that my graphic design software was too slow and I couldn't carry my laptop with my all the time. I wanted a graphic design software I could use online, immediately, and had access to it anytime wherever I am (especially at work with a desktop). Then I discovered Pixlr Editor, and it was the perfect solution to use for bloggers on the go like me!

I've been using Pixlr for almost a year now; I am officially Pixlr's biggest fan.

It was also such an honor to received Pixlr's feedback on how much they like my work and what I have done with my photos for the blog.

Today, as I was editing another photo on Pixlr Editor, I realized that ever since I became a Pixlr-user, my passion in photo manipulation / photo editing has been renewed. As a user, I am very thankful that Pixlr exist and created cutting-edge apps for giving chance to people like me to unleash their inner artist.

Thank you Pixlr for making this blog's images amazing!
