What makes Pixlr great Digital Storytelling tool?

An image has the ability to convey emotion, mood, narrative, ideas and messages – all of which are important elements of storytelling. Usually, in order to tell the story you intended, the images you have need some editing. Cropping, resizing, adjusting background, colour, adding text and other visual elements, could all support the story one is telling and the style of the storyteller. To succeed in this, having access to a good editing tool is extremely important.

Pixlr enables you to edit your photos wherever you are. The powerful online photo editor works like a charm on your mobile device too, so you can get into editing mode whenever you feel like it.

For example, one click is all it takes to remove backgrounds perfectly from your photos, cut out every strand of hair and more!

Instead of creating graphic elements from scratch, you can browse their well-stocked library of stickers, overlays, borders, icons and decorative texts to add to your photos.

Pixlr assures users that their images are kept private. Users open their files directly from their computers, tablets, or phones and the application does not, in any way, store perpetual copies of the images in their systems.
