Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Pixlr Editor

Description: 

Pixlr Editor is a web-based photo editing application. It’s kind of like a lite version of Adobe Photoshop that is free and web-based.

What We Like: 
  • Can edit images right in my browser
  • Can open images from the internet via url or from my computer.
  • Has pretty robust image editing tools for a free utility (spot heal, clone stamp, lasso selection, magic wand, etc.)
Limitations: 
  • No warning/safeguard from navigating away before changes are made. No autosave feature that I can see. Really easy to lose work.
  • Not a really good image hosting solution. Need to save and add to drive, lms, etc.
Classroom Application: 
Make basic photo edits to images to get them course ready
Annotate photos and graphics to add additional context
Create logos & graphic designs from scratch
Students can use pixlr to edit photos, make collages, etc.
