Phixr mini-relaunch

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

Welcome to our new outfit! Well, we are sure you noticed. Phixr looks different. We’ve worked hard, tortured a reasonably large crowd with amber fluids and chips for an extensive period of time in order to provide us with the feedback we wanted to hear… and now: Here it is. Phixr’s new, shiny clothes. What’s not to like?

Other news include

  • new “comic” and “printed comic” special effects (see demo image);
  • new “comic border” in the border tool (see demo image);
  • the “mix with preset image” tool now includes not only patterns, but also objects (like a heart, a light bulb, a party hat, etc) that can be inserted into your image. Also, this tool now uses the selection.
  • automatic update of the selection: if you move or otherwise change it, any tool window using the selection will automatically update.
  • the “lomo effect” is now much faster;
  • bugfixes in speech bubble (yes, again). We apologize for eventual inconveniences (yes, again).
  • better handling in tool windows, and much more.

Under the hood, the news are mainly that we are running on a new server farm. Twice as many CPUs, twice the memory. That should do for a while… Happy phixing, dudes

Phixr fixing week!

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

Phixr got a few new features during the last few days:

  • Phixr now supports uploading photos to Twitter! You can tweet directly from inside Phixr now.
  • Phixr now has a new Facebook entry page. You can choose the photo to edit directly from within Facebook, without the cumbersome step of authorizing Phixr first.
  • Phixr has a new way to transfer photos from Photobucket and we now also support group albums.
  • We improved SmugMug support. This is much faster now.
  • Photo rotation is improved. You can now rotate photos of any size. However, larger photos will be clipped to the actual photo area, no background added.
  • You can now print your photo on your local printer.
  • Bugfixes in speech bubble, lomo and round corners tools. We apologize for eventual inconveniences.
