PicSay – An Award Winning Photo Editor for Android That Works Great On A Chromebook

February 7, 2018

As the old saying goes, “A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words” and the developers of PicSay, have nailed it. I was looking for a good photo editor for my Chromebook and came across the Android app called PicSay. The catch here is that you do have to have a Chromebook that will run Android apps. If not, I still highly recommend PicSay for your Android Phone or Tablet. As a matter of fact, after testing PicSay, I ended up buying the app and installing it on my Chromebook and all my Android devices. It is probably the best Android app I have installed and run on the Chromebook. There is a FREE version of PicSay (with limited features) and the paid version called PicSay Pro. I encourage you to try the free version first to determine if it is something you will like.

Trust me, you will not go wrong with his app if you are into editing photos and graphic design.

Feature Summary: Sharpen, remove red eye, crop & straighten, distort, insert cutouts of other pictures, paint, make color splash out of black-and-white pictures, add text, word balloons, apply effects like Cross Process, Lomo, Vignette, faux HDR, Tilt-shift, Pencil Sketch, and much more.

Supports high resolution editing up to 13MP for devices that can handle it.

Add Pixlr Online Photo Editor to Your Google Drive

May 22, 2012

With the inception of Google Drive (Google’s new cloud storage and collaboration service), there are quite a few apps that you can set up that will work hand-in-hand with Google Drive.  One of my favorites is Pixlr.

Pixlr is an online photo editor that gives you the ability to work with photos (and graphics) inside your web browser (no software install is required). If you are already subscribed to Google Drive, you can add Pixlr from the Chrome Web Store. After you have this completed, you will be able to open images from Google Drive right into Pixlr.

An easy way to add apps (such as Pixlr) to Google Drive is to open up your Google Drive, click on the “Create” button, then click on “More”, then click on “Get More Apps”.  When you click on “Get More Apps”, you will be redirected to the Chrome Store where there is a wide (and growing) selection of Google Drive compatible apps.

November 11, 2011

Folks, I do a lot of graphic editing and desktop publishing on the amateur level and I would be lost if I did not have a good graphic editor and screen capture application.

Don’t let the simplicity of this application fool you. It can do everything you need it do to get that graphic editing job done.

PicPick Tools

I have written about PicPick Tools before, but it is one of those apps that just continues to improve and one of those apps (that in my opinion) should be in the Freeware Hall of Fame.
