Favorite editing app for a long time now. But, I swear adjustments used to appear in real-time when you draged the slider back and forth making it easy to fine-tune your adjustments. Now you have to drag the slider and then release it before the adjustment pops in. Dragging and releasing, dragging and releasing, dragging and releasing, just to see results makes it very hard to fine tune an image.

Desperately needs documentation. I've spent the last hour wrestling with this thing, just to stitch three images together. Collage is making one of the images huge, with no apparent way to adjust that. I considered resizing the image but I can find no such feature. The blog says there's an Add Image feature, but where? I'm done banging my head against this particular wall; I'm just gonna export to my PC and do it there, like I should have to begin with.

Hi there, Thank you for reaching out to Pixlr. Our Pixlr mobile application is made to be light weight with limited features for quick and minor edits. For more extensive tools, we recommend to check out our Pixlr web application over at www.pixlr.com.

Review 2 I don't know what you guys updated but now it crashes all the time. Review 1 When ever I use the healing tool on the face of a person, after saving it, what should've been healed comes out a black splotch or green glitchy blocks. And I can't re edit the photo because it only makes it worse. Ait doesn't show up while editing, so I won't know the problem until after I saved the photo. My only choice is to screenshot the healed photo but that is a whole other problem of losing quality.
