Photo effects – vintage, retro, online and free.
“Turn your photos into cool looking effects like vintage and retro snaps! With this fun and simple darkroom you can apply filters, lighting and borders easily.”
What Funky Monkey says
If you’re like this dLooker and love the filters on apps like Instagram, but hate the fact that you have to actually upload and publically share a photograph to apply the filter, or maybe you just wish that you could apply these cool effects to some of the photos you took on your actual camera, then you will love this website.
Pixlr-o-matic allows you to upload photos from your computer, not just your phone, and apply various filters, as well as crop, add borders and even overlays.
The website is simple and easy to use: all you do is simply upload your photo (or take one using your computer’s webcam) and then scroll through over 100 effects until your come across then one you like. After the filter and whatever else you have selected is applied, simply download the edited image.
Not only that, you can also download the program for FREE and use it whenever you want, not just when you are connected to the internet. One of the best things about this program is that it doesn’t reduce the image resolution, size or quality – if you upload a massive photograph file from an SLR camera, it will still be that same size when you download it from the program after the filter has been applied.
The only issue that this dLooker had with the program was that you can’t upload and add the same effect to multiple images at once. So you have to upload every single image one by one and add the effect which can be rather time consuming.
If you’re an iphone or android user then you can also download the Pixlr-o-matic app, which was voted “Best App Ever” in 2011 in the photo editing category for android, and edit the photos on your phone as well.
So if you want to edit your photographs without having to spend time and money on a program like Photoshop, or maybe you just want to use cool effects likes those that are available on Instagram, check out Pixlr-o-matic today on your computer or phone!
