Pros

I've used Pixlr X for for a while and found it very intuitive and actually beautiful. The interface kept updating and improving over time, and new features like AI cutout are very useful.
I have found this app very useful as it is very good alternative of photoshop and is free and easy to use. It is flexible and does not take much space on your phone.
As I mentioned, it's really good for students and begginers of photography. I would recommend it to friends and colleagues, it does its job, it's good, it's an alternative.

Pros

IT is really nice that I don't have to have a subscription to a professional tool like Adobe Indesign to be able to make meaningful graphics for my business.
It is great if you're looking for variety, this software contains beautiful textures which is great if you're looking to stand out.
I'm very happy with what this software has to offer, it's very user friendly and a great editing software for anyone to use.

Cons

Since I use other tools for graphic design, taking the time to learn those features in Pixlr - or to pay for Pixlr premium - doesn't make sense for me.
Since I don't use Pixlr that frequently, sometimes I feel a little lost when opening the app after a gap. It takes me bit of extra time to find my way around again.
I have seen many disadvantages on this app. It does not have many options and the result is to close to photoshop and other.

Cons

I dislike that I would have to pay to use the premium features, but I understand why. I probably would pay if I needed to use it more often.
The worst thing about this app is the login options. Since it's new upgrade, the login has gotten really tacky.
But if they just fix their log in problems, it'd be a beast.

Picmonkey is one of the best image editors around

Reviewed 7 years ago

The program offers many benefits, including facial simple editing tools, facial touch-ups, and quality filters and overlays.

Pros

Picmonkey allows users to edit their photos with a variety of simple tools and an abundance of preset image manipulations. The tool categorizes its functions neatly. For example, it groups all of its cosmetic features in one category, all its filters and overlays in another category, and all of its simple editing tools in another. Overall, the program makes it easy to make pictures look great.

Cons

The worst thing about Picmonkey is that it costs money. While users used to be able to use most features for free, the company recently changed its business model, making users pay to use any of its features. While some may think /mo is worth the amazing features, others will turn to free alternatives, such as Pixlr express, to meet their photo editing needs.
