    No Photoshop? No Problem!

    Building a website is more than just text. Graphics and images play an important role in how your church or ministry is presented online. It's also important that images are created the correct size and at the correct resolution to ensure they can be viewed quickly and accurately.

    For the best experience, Adobe Photoshop is the industry standard. There are other options. We did a write-up on Pixelmator, a Mac app for just $14.99.

    Today, I stumbled upon something entirely different, a web app called Pixlr. It's interesting because Pixlr seems to work just in your web browser and provides a fairly complete Photoshop like experience. There also doesn't seem to be any sort of cost associated with using the product. I edited a few photos, save them to my computer and it all seemed to work great. Creating graphics and re-sizing images appear to be a breeze with this product.

    Below is a screenshot of the editing screen. As you can see, it's fairly similar to what you'd expect from a Photoshop alternative.



    Have you had any experience using this or a similar product? We'd love to hear your comments.
