So far the only app I've found that allows basic raw editing (cropping, image quality adjustments) on a mobile device without needing an account or subscription. The free version is pretty good but falls into the category of apps that work better with muted audio to get around the ads. I would be happy to pay a reasonable one off fee instead of a subscription.

This app went from my most heavily recommended apps for its ease of use & its power to edit (mostly!), to my biggest regret in ever recommending. This app is otw to being just another shuttered trinket in effigy to apps when they were great, tucked in some dusty corner of the app store! The ads are OUTRAGEOUS - they trap you from use for 30 SECONDS when you "Save." Worst of all with "saving," such a high priority to lock you out of use to advertise to you glitches a fatal craah... smh :(

This used to be my all time favorite app! Now it is HORRIBLE!! The ADS hold you HOSTAGE. Non-stop. One after another, taking up the full screen on Android devices and only after half a minute does a tiny "x" appear on the top right. So tiny that I missed it and had to reboot my phone twice!! Disgusting! EDITED: I was pleasantly surprised to receive a very prompt response from Pixlr and I re-downloaded the app to try it out. Unfortunately the ADS bombardment continued. 8 ADS before I could save my changes. I give the app 2 stars this time but it is a far cry from what it used to be. It had reasonable amount of advertising but didn't completely overwhelm the user.

This used to be my go-to app for all "Photoshop" work I had to do on the fly. Genuinely great. I've had it installed for at least 4 years. But now the adverts are SO obtrusive and the UI has been simplified to an extent that it is no longer as useful or powerful and editor as it once was. The non-stop adverts, with 30 seconds timers, are presumably to make you pay for the full fat version to remove ads, but all it has achieved is to cement my decision to uninstall the app

I've used this app for years. Loved it for so many reasons, even though it's limited in its ability to edit superimposed images and blur/blend sections. I understand apps need to make money, but the new feature of forcing users to watch long ads or lose their work is intrusive and frustrating. Surely there's a better way. Guess it's back to Photoshop. 😫

Gen. G. Mar 7, 2022     

This has ALWAYS been my #1 go to for photo editing and although I don't mind ads (and fully understand the reasoning behind them) using this app has become beyond frustrating! An ad (and the very same one at that) after everything that I attempt to do (not even finish) is excessive. BTW... I've noticed your response on other reviews saying that this issue has been resolved... I'm going to tell you that as of today it has not been resolved so please don't try to tell me otherwise.

This has been my go to app for years, I even still use it even though some of the commercials can be invasive but they have to make revenue. For some reason the new update keeps causing the app to freeze up then restart so I keep losing modified images while in the middle of working on them. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app so we will see if it works out.

Dyl. G. Mar 7, 2022     

Used to be a serviceable app. The ads are so intrusive at this point though that when you get one, no matter what you do, your phone is taken over for at least 30 seconds, and when you go to click the microscopic little x to exit it, it forced you into the app store to the download page, usually at least twice. Completely unusable and plays sounds from ads even when not in app.

Bra. Feb 26, 2022     

This used to be a great app, but now it will not allow saving of images due to full screen ads that stop you from saving. When you hit back button to try and save again, the same as blocks you. It takes several attempts to finally save an image because of full screen video ads blasting away. Please fix or I'll have to delete since it's not worth dealing with.

I. H. D. Mar 18, 2022     

Great app, been using it for years. The recent implementation of intrusive advertisements before you can save your work is truly awful. Pixlr claims that you can close them after 5 seconds, but generally you can't. You have to wait over 30 seconds to close the ad, and often when clicking on the X to do so, it will instead take you to the PlayStore to the ad page. I understand that you need to make money, but you're driving users away. You won't profit from uninstalls and 1 star ratings.

Guy. D. S. Mar 17, 2022     

Ads do NOT close after 5 seconds or so. And in fact 2 ads pop up. One right after the other. I don't mind seeing some ads like it was for years. The new ads are overwhelming. And app crashes often. Very often. I used to love this app. And no, it's not worth some crazy subscription. It should just be a one time purchase. And understandably in app purchases if need be. But, that's it. So sad to have had to delete this app.

Abn. A. Mar 14, 2022     

I use it mainly for cropping images and some of its free fonts and frames. Not my favorite app, but still very useful. Edit: It used to be great! Like so many others are saying, they now force ads on you even once you've shared your work to another app. And when you try to go back, you have to start from zero. Very annoying! Look elsewhere!

Chr. Feb 28, 2022     

Used this app for year's. Had to uninstall due to aggressive pop-up ads you cannot bypass which then force you to the play store. I have always been happy to pay for an ad free environment, but not a monthly subscription; especially as I only use it for the basic functions. Offer a way to remove the ads without a subscription and I will happily return.

Kev. H. Mar 25, 2022     

This is a surprisingly powerful app that I've been using over the past four years. The double exposure feature is especially fun when used in conjunction with a background eraser. The filters, stickers, and overlay options are a lot of fun. The biggest drawback as others have pointed out is the ads that play when you save your work. I understand why they're there but I'd like to see a better implementation of ads.

Bra. B. Apr 4, 2022     

I used to really love Pixlr and have been using it for several years, however recently my overall experience with this app has plummeted. It's constantly crashing sometimes in the middle of editing photos, the ads are very intrusive, certain tools glitch and cause issues with your photo that you have to then correct. Hopefully this app can be restored back to it's former glory. For now I'll be limiting my use of it.

Mon. L. Apr 16, 2022     

I've been using Pixlr since like 2014. I've NEVER had any issues with this app. IMHO, All this time I thought it was the best. Until recently. It's to the point where the ads pop up while you're actually in the app editing photos. It's bad enough that lately the ads have been incredibly & increasingly annoying when you go to post on social media platforms but as of lately they are plain outright intrusive. Might be time to find something else and move on from this app 👎🏽💩

Iba. A. Apr 5, 2022     

I've used this excellent app for quite a while. Never felt the need to review it, but feel I need to now. Only recently when you click to save the image you get automatically hijacked to the app store page to add another advertised app they think you want. The hijacker doesn't allow you to read the advert and return to pixlr, or a back button. You end up restarting the app to get around it. Now I paid for advert free sometime ago, and it eventually started plying me with ads again. 3/10.

Col. H. Mar 19, 2022     

Ever since they started pushing ads more it's just been unusable - not because I have to see more ads but because they ruin the usability. They only appear when you're saving something, but a 10 second wait to even have the option to skip, plus another 5 second wait, and even after that there's sometimes STILL another ad! And the worst part is the glitch where skipping an ad might blackout the app. There's no way to unblack it without shutting down the app. I've lost a few projects this way.

Ed. L. Feb 27, 2022     

Very sad day. Have been using this app for a decade. No longer useable due to invasive ads you are forced to watch. Don't want to hear the ads are there so that Imagine Labs can afford to maintain the app. The app was developed many years ago. Will find a suitable substitute, but never coming back. Not paying for a subscription to get rid of ads when I've been using it for free for the last ten-plus years. A one time payment would have been acceptable. This is not.

the. Apr 3, 2022     

It used to be a great free app. Now when you go to save an edited photo, the app runs EXTREMELY INTRUSIVE ads that are impossible to leave even AFTER sitting through the entire advertisement. I've lost photo edits as a result of the ads that I worked 30 minutes+ on. I'm about ready to uninatall the app and find something new. If I could make a one time purchase to remove ads I would, but they want you to pay an actual subscription, which this particular app is not worth.

Len. J. Mar 30, 2022     

Since my recent review was deleted: As a "free" app it has way too many ads. They double as you get two ads. Worse thing is trying to do a color fill on type. You can only do one letter at a time then save it it but the next letter the controls go beserk and you can't see the color you're trying to pick. I'm sure there are better apps so I'm leaving and "NO" I don't want to contact support for this. **And why when my device works with many other APPS you say "it could be my device"?

lil. Mar 17, 2022     

My go to app for years. Ads didn't bother me: in fact, it was reassuring to see an ad because it meant my picture saved. The problem is not the ads, the problem is when they are 5 minutes long, unskippable and sound. Feels like I am on one of those "water sorter" games. This completely ruins it for me. It cheapens app so much. I'd pay a £5 fee for lifetime use of the app. Not a monthly subscription. Thank god for snapseed. Il

Chr. Mar 1, 2022     

I used to love this app, but now you have to watch a one minute long video before you can save. I understand you need to make money but these are excessive. I don't mind watching for about 10 seconds, but not a minute. There are plenty of other apps that can replace you, so before you lose more subscribers, hence lose people to watch your ads, you guys need to revisit the idea of running one minute long video ads.

Jac. C. May 18, 2022     

I enjoy using pixelr for everything from flyers to small Facebook postings to full screen transitional images that I include in some of my presentations to date it seems to be a useful tool and stands out as image tool for Android I can't seem to go without.

Neg. G. Mar 7, 2022     

Thank you for resolving a lot of the issues, such as 'blur' and some others with the new update. Also need to thank your team for your prompt and efficient responses to my emails. Unfortunately, the app keeps lowering the image quality a great deal, which is indeed a factor to consider when picking a photo editing app. I wish Pixlr could be like before, when it was just top notch and flawless.

Joh. K. May 8, 2022     

Great app, nice filters, awesome blending modes. Just one issue with the double exposure, it tends to create vertical bands and blurriness on the pictures. Ed.: I had given it 5 stars. I had to remove 2 stars regarding the recent version. It's full of ads. It's very annoying.

Jun. Mar 19, 2022     

I used this app almost every day but now I have to delete due to the obnoxious full screen, non closeable ads. I try to exit out of them and it just takes me to the app store to download the app shown in the ad over and over and I can't save the photo I've edited because I have to force close the app to get the ad to stop playing. Why would you ad this horrible feature to this app??? Edit: you say you've fixed the ads but I just tried to save an edited photo and it's the same. Stop lying.

Mik. P. Mar 20, 2022     

Good app but it has been taken over by ads that take to long to play as you try to download your edited photos Update: I find it insulting to be told to subscribe to the subscription plan when I am disabled and on a fixed income. These intrusive ads, that last longer than 30 seconds before you can close them to be able to save your work is going to drive people away
