I was just trying this app on my cell phone and found it to be really comprehensive, easy to use and fun!! It will do all the basics, like cropping, resizing, rotating etc., and then has loads of fun stuff like filters, effects, overlays, collage, text and more… I really like it so far and is one of the better ones out there for real editing on the go.

Here is a photo edited in Pixlr

Hi all,

I was just going through some photos of London and thought this one could do with a little rework using a Lightroom filter I found from Presetpro. I applied the filter then tweaked it a little to bring out some highlights in the colors. I think it gives more pop to the photo…

Hi all,

I was checking out the updated plans for the Redondo Beach Waterfront revitalization project and came across the official website that really gives a fantastic overview of the plan. When you look at the video and renderings, plus listen to the various Redondo Beach residents, business people, and council members, a convincing and exciting picture unfolds before you…

This is going to be a fantastic revitalization of our waterfront.

This rendering looks from Kincaid’s direction toward where old Tony’s would have been and shows the proposed shops and restaurants along  the old walkway area above the rocks…
