Pixlr Is the New Photoshop

Sunday, May 29, 2011 6 Comments

I've been using the Pixlr editor since my last Photoshop-equipped laptop crapped out in 2009. It's flash, web-based and completely free. I'm sure real digital artists can do better than poorly cropped off heads of the Heroes of the Federal Reserve attached to, uh, used car salesmen.

Here are some excellent examples of what I've been able to accomplish with Pixlr over the years; if you actually try, you can probably do some editing 15 - 55 times better than this.

Danger, the next one may not be SFW depending on a) if you work and b) whether or not you want your coworkers to see you looking at money coming out of someone's ass.


See? It's amazing. (here are some others)

Play with Pixlr here or find them on Facebook. They have recently introduced Pixlr-O-Matic to make your images look like you "left them on the dashboard of your 68 VW camper all summer."

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

still my favorite - Honest Ben's Auto Emporium.... a classic. Quality, gently used cars from a name and establishment you can trust.

No job
No problem!

I didn't even have to put that part in. I did, however, add the chest hair.

You know Benny is a hairy beast.

I shit you not - on my way to go fishing on Memorial Day, I passed a billboard advertising a car dealership's "alternative financing department" manager and the fucker's nickname was "The Otter" ---- I was like, ummm what the fuck does a god damned otter have to do with the retail installment sales financing of a gently used set of wheels? Credit Challenged? Call The Otter... That's like calling the Caddyshack gopher for golf lessons??? Giving a bad name to all the other otters, I think. Yep, I'm with you and bettin' that Ben is a swarthy and hairy little devil. Need to put some Sasquatch hair on that ass shitting dollars picture (?)

The Revenge of "The Otter" When Honest Ben needs to move some iron off the lot but the buyer is a little on the shaky side and doesn't have a whole lotta ass in the saddle, who is he gonna get to finance for the mark, ahem - scratch that, customer? Ally Bank, that's who. Wash, rinse, repeat... and the wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round....

"We accept retail auto contracts through the full credit spectrum -- including nonprime -- as a normal part of our business," he said. "We place greater emphasis on the higher end of the nonprime spectrum and we only approve credit for qualified customers who demonstrate the ability to pay."

--- actually, this is a good business and can be extremely profitable so long as the risks are properly priced. It's all about pricing.
