What is Pixlr?

Pixlr is the creator of online cloud-based image tools. Currently they have two applications in their suite: one we call Pixlr Editor and the other is Pixlr Express. They are built in Flash and you need to have the Flash plug-in to get it to work, however, 98% of all computers have flash so you are probably set.

The pixlr services is built for both non-professionals and professional users with editing needs such as editing web images to be posted on social networks like Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, or image sites like Flickr, Fotolog, Photobucket etc.

It's also widely used by professionals for fixing images for news sites and blogs etc.

How about privacy?

From Flash 10 and later, images are opened direct and local in your browser (i.e we don't see them in any way and they don't leave your computer).

Files that are posted to us via the API or our add-ons are automatically deleted from our servers after 5 minutes.
