A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words
Pictures are an important part of any website. They add interest and make your visitors want to stay on the site longer. If they are impressed with your layout and images, you will get return visitors, which is something every website owner wants. Photos are nice, but to make an image stand out, you need to dress it up by transforming it with image editing software.
Pixlr online image editor might not have all the bells and whistles of other photo imaging software, but if the tools and filters are used to their best advantage, you can create some pretty impressive images for your website or blog.
Look at the two images below. The first photo of a zinnia is nice, and has good composition and color, but it's sort of boring. In the second picture, simply by using the filters and tools in Pixlr, the plain photo has been transformed into a portrait with a vignette and a hammered gold frame.
