As many of my clients know, I’ve recommended Pixlr as a great online image editor. It’s free – and a fair replacement for Photoshop (which I really love).
I’ve noticed that Pixlr’s online editor has been acting strangely as of late – slow to load, failing to load, and now sporting the “AutoDesk” label. “Uh-Oh, I said… here we go…”
And of course – I fire up Pixlr this morning only to find a good deal of my editing space is consumed by a ginormous advertisement for Google Drive. Ugh. No way to get rid of it. And I already own Google Drive. 🙁
Refreshed the page – and now I’m suddenly a candidate to meet Asian Girls. (Nothing against Asian Girls, they’re quite lovely – but I’m spoken for). So, thank you AutoDesk. You’ve ruined what was a perfectly good tool, just like Microsoft did to Skype.
I took the only appropriate action, and recommend my followers do the same. I’ve had good luck with Canva, so maybe that’s the new tool in my future… I only wish it supported layers.
