Tilt-shift, etc.

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Today’s update include the following new features:

  • Upon public demand we included a “tilt-shift” effect, now found in Camera & Lens tools. Tilt-shift in our context means simulating an extremely shallow depth of field. More information can be found in Phixr’s help, long story short, here are a few examples (google can give you more, just search for “tilt shift”):

  • Rotate: We added a new way of determining the angle. You can now “mark” the horizon, which will be exactly horizontal after rotating the image. Sounds complicated, but is really easy. Just draw a line into the left thumbnail in the rotation tool window.

  • You can now create images from scratch, for instance, for creating backgrounds (using eg. the gradient tool).

More 2 come, stay tuned. Happy phixing in the meantime.

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.
