Pixlr: An Online Photo Editor

Whenever we think of photo editing, the first thing that comes to our mind is Photoshop. But, unfortunately Photoshop is something which not everyone can afford so they would have to look at some place else. One of the tools which they could take a look at is Pixlr.

Pixlr is an Online Photo Editor that can perform the basic editing functions like cropping, resizing, adding a white space etc. It may not have all the features of Photoshop and hence it is not a recommended substitute. But, with that said it is always good to give it a shot and see what you can achieve by playing around with it!

Get the Pocket App

Have you ever been in situations where you are trying to find an unfinished article on your phone that appears to be lost in a sea of browser tabs? Or if you are reading an article but half way through you realize that you don’t have enough time and decide that you are going to read it later but never come back to it again. Does this sound familiar?

I had been through these situations a lot and then I found an app where I could save articles that I want to read to the app and come back later and read them. This app saves all the articles that you want to read in one place so that it never gets lost. And another good feature about the “Pocket” App is that it is saved for Offline viewing. So, if you happen to catch the subway or the metro that primarily goes underground you can still read those articles.

The App is called Pocket and it is available on Android and iOS.
