    • The application is free and convenient, but it's also powerful. This book will quickly get new users up and running with Pixlr Editor
    • Pixlr Editor is a great program, but there is a serious lack of coherent documentation on how to get the most from this application. There is a lot of scattered information on the internet, but as of now there is no book about Pixlr Editor. This book will be a comprehensive guide for the beginner in one volume
    • This book is a potential boon for art or photography instructors across the U.S. (and perhaps the world). With so many schools operating on shoe string budgets, those that can't afford to subscribe to use Adobe Photoshop can still teach photo editing using Pixlr Editor. Now, there can be a comprehensive book to teach from-no more cobbling lessons together in a hodge-podge fashion

            Learn digital image editing without the expense of using subscription-based editors. This book will pave the way for you to leverage Pixlr Editor, a free, web-based image editing solution that works on virtually any computer platform.

            You'll learn image editing first hand by using the practice images with the corresponding tutorials—everything from creating simple graphics to enhancing and retouching photos. Explore all of the features you'd expect in a high end photo editing application; layers, history (multiple undos), and an array of powerful tools for handling almost any editing task.
