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.

Photobucket support extended

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

Photobucket support is now extended as Phixr lets you download photos from photobucket to Phixr as well now. However, since this works differently than the upload (which requires you to enter username and mobile upload PIN), here are a few words: For downloading images from photobucket, you need to log into photobucket from inside the phixr website. After that you can browse your photobucket album(s). In order to grab a photo and drag it to Phixr, please use the “Transfer this photo to Phixr”-button in the bottom.

Note: There is also an “upload” button (and a file selector field immediately above) which allow uploading photos to photobucket. With these, you can only upload files from your computer, not photos that are currently stored in your phixr account. Last but not least, the “Logout”-Link in the top right of the photobucket “window” logs you out from photobucket, not phixr.

No news on the Webshots front, unfortunately. Uploading still fails.

New feature: Phixr now supports uploading photos by e-mail. For this purpose, you get a PIN code, which is displayed and can be changed in your settings. The e-mail address to mail your photos to is – where USERNAME is your username and PIN is the said PIN code, consisting of 5 digits.

Furthermore, your Photobucket username and “mobile upload PIN” can be saved as well. However, you can still enter or change it when uploading photos to

On a sidenote, the Russion version of the Wallstreet Journal and the Financial Times wrote about Phixr yesterday. Nice….
