App of the day: Pixlr Touch Up

Pixlr Touch Up app

Online photo editor Pixlr (opens in new tab) recently collaborated with Google and makers of 3ds Max (opens in new tab) and Maya (opens in new tab), Autodesk, to create this new, next-generation photo app Pixlr Touch Up (opens in new tab). Available now for Chrome OS and Windows Chrome users, it does something unqiue to Pixlr - allows users to edit photos both on and offline.

Key functionality includes:

  • Online/offline capability: Pixlr Touch Up enables users to edit their photos even when they’re on or off the grid.
  • Plug-free: It’s a lightweight, always-on and auto-updating, browser-based app.
  • Seamless Integration: Pixlr Touch Up integrates Google Drive directly into the app. This provides users with a safe, free and effective way to save their work.
  • Magic touch-up features removes unwanted subjects and blends your background with the click of a button

The Pixlr team comment on their blog: "If you’re looking for a smart app to quickly get your photos just the way you want, you should give Pixlr Touch Up a try. If you use Google Drive, this is going to be an indispensable tool. If you are a Windows user who also uses Chrome, this is the offline photo editor you’ve been waiting for, and if you’ve got a Chromebook, this is right up your alley."
