Has anyone else tried using Pixelr (http://www.pixlr.com/app/)? I was pointed in the direction of it today and at first glance it looks quite handy, especially considering it's an online photo editor and doesn't require any code on the machine you're running it on. If anyone has any practical experience with it I'd love to hear what you think.

Wow! This is so cool, Mark! I haven't posted any pics because I don't have a photo editor yet, after reformatting my laughtough. Saw the site. Wonderful! I think this kind of online application will be a mainstream thing. Other sites already have some functions for editing pics. This is top notch, so far. I'll put this in my faves and check it out later.
TFS,
Freddie :)

Hi Mark and Freddie...

It might be a useful appkication if it weren't so damn slow!!

I've played with it before and became intolerably frustrated within a few log-ons.

For those who don't know about it, I'd recommend PhotoFiltre. It's a free program downloadable from the web at: http://www.photofiltre.com/

PF is not the memory hog that PhotoShop is, and has some features that make it more user friendly than PS (the framing protocol in particular).

I use PF as my primary photo editor except when I have to go to PS7 for certain specialized functions that PF won't/doesn't handle as well(layers in particular).

Hey, Peter,
I am glad to hear you say that about Photofiltre. I LOVE their framing options. I've been using it for years and for a free editing program, it's outstanding. I am still finding things it does I didn't realize. I nearly always use it for workshops. Quick, easy, simple and does a great job. I like the layers, USM and a few color and levels enhancements on Photoshop, but I do all final sizing, sharpening and framing on Photofiltre. And I love downloading to Picasa. Quick crop, sharpen, bit of levels and you can see right off if you'll be able to work with the photo or just need to trash it. And it's very easy to delete them from there.

And I to use Photofiltre, much to the disgust of some friends of mine who said I should only be using photoshop (eh Janice) I do have photoshop CS2 as well) Which I have started to explore more of late. But Photofiltre is so very simple to use, the framing is very easy, and its very good at sharpening. I also find Picasa very good for straitening horizons!

But as I said lately I have been exploring photoshop which is very good for shadows/highlights and exposure. But I havent had the patience yet to sit and work out layers!..oneday!!..cant rush these things.

I just tried it and it works fine with my cable DSL. I like it because I don't have to upload an application, especially when I travel or use other computer with limited authorization to upload any application. The thread is about Online Application, anyway. It's cool to have choices! :)

Hi Dawn,

Once you master layers you'll never go back! They just open up so many possibilities. C'mon, take the plunge! :-)

There's a great video tutorial system on the web called lynda.com. They have hundreds of video training sessions, all professionally produced and very thorough. It's not free, but well worth it. They cover Photoshop and most of its versions in great detail.

Good luck!
- Bob

Thanks Bob...for your comments here and the link to lynda.com.. I know I must take that plunge.. I will! thank you again.
