[MUSIC] [NOISE] Now, let's take a look at some alternative ways to approach post-processing. Most of the programs and apps we'll look at, don't have much that's comparable to the library module. Most of them use the file organization schemes of the operating system of the computer or cell phone. Many of them though provide cameras and galleries, but most importantly, they provide a range of post processing options. Some are very similar to the presets in the developed module in that, they are applied to the whole image at once and have pre-established effects. A few provide tools similar to those found in Photoshop and Light Room that can be used to build up effects, one detail at a time. Pixelar by Auto Desk, the first alternative we'll look at, has both desktop versions and cell phone app versions. As well as a basic free version and a pro version that must be purchased. Let's take a look at those options and we'll go into detail on the desktop version of PIXLR pro. When we navigate to the PIXLR site across the top row you see the range of options PIXLR makes available. Next to the name, you see web apps. If you click that, it will display a short description of PIXLR Express, which is their popular, free web based photo editor. Under the next category mobile you'll find a descriptoin of mobile pixlr, which is another photo editor that runs on your cell phone. In the third category you see pixlr for desktop, a third option. Next to that, Blog, which is a blog about ways to use Pixlr to make dynamic, striking images to combine effects and tips and tricks. And finally, the last category is Made With Pixlr. Which is a gallery of images found from all over the internet with the #Pixlr. So let's take a moment and go into the desktop editor, which is the one most close to the developer module in light room. Before going into the desktop version of Pixlr, it might also be worth taking just a moment to look at the web based editor. Primarily to show the connection with Adobe Photoshop. If you know Adobe Photoshop, this already probably looks very similar to what you expect to see in Photoshop. If you don't, you can either go to the Adobe site or you can use the free downloadable version to compare the features. On the left side here you'll notice a large Panel with many icons on it in two columns. Photoshop users will immediately recognize this as the tool panel and if you put the cursor over each of those icons, you'll notice a number of operations that are directly related to those found In Photoshop. Many of them have the name of tools. So the first one here for instance is called crop tool, next to it you have the move tool. Underneath you have the marquee tool, which is a selection tool found in Photoshop. Lasso tool another selection tool also found in Photoshop. And the wand tool underneath the pencil tool, a brush tool, eraser tool, paint bucket tool, radiant tool, clone stamp tool. Power replacement tool and so forth all the way down the line. And it's only this tool panel that has a great deal of similarity to which you will find in Photoshop, but all of the menu's themselves the image menu, you can change size. You can change the canvas, it has a distinction between the size of the image and the size of the canvas. There's a whole set of operations that could be done on layers. Adjustment menu allows you to do typical Photoshop operations. Brightness and contrast, hue and saturation, color difference, color vibrant levels, curves, exposure, and so forth. All operations found within Photoshop and likewise for the filter category. We have blur, box blur, gaussing blur, sharpen, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. So in general this tool, this package Is highly similar to Photoshop.
