Did you know you create fantastic edits without owning Photoshop? There are a lot of free programs out there, but one of my favorite go-to’s when I don’t have access to Photoshop is to use Pixlr. It is a free web app photo editor with two options. There is the regular Pixlr, which is more like Photoshop and lets you do things such as add layer masks, and then they also have Pixlr Express, which is more like a quick fix, add filter type of editing. In the Pixlr Tutorial video below, I go over how to create those more artsy/fine art images using Pixlr express.
This is a really great option if you do not want to use your phone to edit, but want the simplicity of using Instagram like filters. However, Pixlr Express takes it a bit further giving you more creative freedom.
