Autodesk brings iOS photo editor Pixlr to Mac

updated 12:02 am EDT, Fri August 29, 2014

Free subscriptions for basic users, paid Pro level for photographers

After years of good reviews as a series of iOS apps, Autodesk has now brought its image-editing app Pixlr to the Mac. While it bears great resemblance to the myriad other filter-and-effect photo editors from the iOS world, the app does offer some features rarely seen in competitors, such as a "double exposure" collaging feature. As with the company's Sketchbook, Autodesk offers several "tiers" of use, the most "pro" level of which is available on an annual or monthly paid subscription.



The two tiers of subscription are free, but require membership beyond the most basic level. The app itself is free, and includes basic photo-editing tools and over 600 effects. The second level is also free, called the "Essentials" level, and adds the Double Exposure feature and additional effects, overlays and borders. The "Pixlr Pro" level, which costs $15 a year or $2 per month on a month-to-month basis, offers more advanced features such as selective focal blur, healing tools, type masking, gradient effects and what the company calls "Influence Masks," along with fine control over specific color channel.



The pro subscription is available through an in-app purchase and is automatically renewed unless that option is turned off.
