Posted on October 16th, 2013 by Jean

This is a fun tutorial to show how to use Pixlr Express, a free online photo editor. It can give your photos a fresh, unique look. I use it to create collages.

The steps are easy.

1. Visit Pixlr Express and “click” Collage. Choose Layout, upload your photos and begin editing.

2. To apply different effects to each photo, click on the paintbrush at the top of each photo. Apply effects, then save to return to the collage.

Edit options include Adjustment, Effect, Overlay, Border, Sticker, and Text. Select each one to see your choices. With Adjustment, you can rotate, crop, lighten, etc. Effects contain the filters. Overlays are bursts of images.

When finished, save to your computer.

Here’s one my daughter made! Now I’m holding a pop-tart while a monkey plays on the lawn. Super sweet!
