Autodesk Inc., San Rafael, Calif., announced a partnership with Photobucket Corp., to bring Pixlr photo editing tools to Photobucket users. Photobucket will now offer Pixlr tools, including the Pixlr Editor, which enables per-pixel editing, and the newly revamped Pixlr Express, which provides simple tools to correct, crop, resize and personalize images with effects, overlays and borders. The partnership between the companies will also provide advertisers with a creative environment from which they can deliver custom, branded effects in Photobucket ad packages, according to Autodesk.
“Our goal is to enable our 100 million users to share their memories and stories with simple, best-in-class creative tools; and our partnership with Pixlr enables us to do just that,” says Kate Hare, vice president, Products, Photobucket. “Whether users are looking for easy adjustments and effects, or are in need of advanced features such as layers and per-pixel editing, Pixlr significantly expands that toolset, helping us to deliver the most robust tools for photo-editing and personalization.”
Autodesk claims, with more than 25 million users, Pixlr is one of the most widely used free photo editors. Photobucket users will have access to all Pixlr editing tools, from simple to advanced functions.
