Pixlr-o-Matic - Three Steps to Over 25,000 Photo Effects

A free online image editor called Pixlr-o-Matic is literally as easy as 1-2-3: an image editing process contains only three steps. Regardless its simplicity, Pixlr-o-Matic is powerful: over 25,000 different photo effects can be applied with it. That's a lot!

To be precise, you can add 25,791 different effects to single photo. But, you can of course apply more effects to already processed photos. This means that you can add virtually infinite amounts of effects.

How easy is Pixlr-o-Matic? Like I said, it's as easy as 1-2-3, literally. You need to just click your mouse button. Nothing else. Watch this 30 seconds video to see Pixlr-o-Matic in action:

Pixlr-o-Matic describes itself as a tool for adding retro and vintage effects to your photos, but I think it's way more powerful. Here's a couple of ideas on what you can do with Pixlr-o-Matic:

  • Edit the colors of your photos
  • Make your photos black&white (two variations available)
  • Add some glitter and other flashy elements, like bokeh
  • Add a rain effect
  • Add frames

Below is a simple example. The photo is by David Wagner. Click a picture to see it larger.

Looks so much better, don't you think? And that's just one of the 25,791 possibilities. Click here to see more examples and to read more about Pixlr-o-Matic.
