(4/5) (Sales Champ at Crozdesk)

I was using Pixlr for a long time until I re-discovered Gimp. The good part about Pixlr is that it lives in your browser (which really can be quite an advantage), but if you want something more robust I would suggest Gimp at least, or if you can afford it Photoshop. Although Pixlr is simpler to learn, there are not as many resources & discussions about it online as for Photoshop, but because it's free, it definitely gets a decent star rating!

My go-to for all my editing now. I have it on all my devices and even edit my photos in the Chrome app before posting them! Love Pixlr.
It is easy to use, includes numerous filters and editing features (quite extensive if that takes your fancy), and makes it easy to share via the app to any number of social media apps.
