Pixlr-o-Matic and Pixlr Express fused (and added to the Pixlr Editor)

I wish the adjustability of the Pixlr Express would be included in the Pixlr-o-Matic too. Why not make it Pixlr-o-Matic Express Advanced because the overall interface and intuitivity is better in Pixlr-o-Matic than Pixlr Express. And for the final touch, why not add Pixlr-o-Matic (Express Advanced) as a filter box to the Pixlr Editor (and make the whole package available as a stand alone program too)?

    Tom, Thanks for all the ideas and feedback.

    A lot of the things you wish to have in pom we already have in Express and that is the overall idea of the three different products o-matic/express/editor .. start from simple to advanced. We don't want to add tons of features into o-matic because then it will not be as intuitive and clean thus removing the reason for the app to begin with.

    Express has more functionality and will be getting lots and lots more, we are developing it heavily right now. The UI might seem harder but that's because we need more flexibility to build out the tool and you as a user are more productive as an result.

    Editor will get the effect engine (effect/overlay/border) sometime in the near future as well, but it will be more powerful and you will have the freedom to erase parts of the overlays, change the blending and such.

    So if you see the easy / medium / advanced you understand why o-matic won't get all features you would like. We want anyone to be able to use it.

    All products will also have it's mobile and desktop counterpart in the future.

    Thank you Ola!

    I just took another look at the Pixlr Express and realized why it turned me off in the first place. Please could you make the adjustments so that one has to double click or otherwise actively select them before going into that mode so that one can quickly preview and select between the adjustable elements first. Also the random selection per element opportunity like I described earlier would enhance the process in getting started with such vast amount of selectables. Otherwise the Express seems pretty much ok in my initial experience, only one minor crucial improvement needed and it'll have my vote.

    All in all, I welcome all the photography tools that are able to deliver and enhance productivity in contrast to the clumsy and heavy dinosaur that the Adobe products have become. They need hours and hours to learn the essentials, and learning to master them is a pain with often too little gain. Photoshop or Lightroom to me are the last choices when it comes to adjusting large amounts of pictures that gets taken with digital cameras.

    For productivity my tools of choices are SilkyPix in initial RAW editing (very productive and competent in that, despite minor flaws) and Photoscape, which has been my favourite antique and analogue effects tool so far (you should take a look, not very pretty but delivers nicely). And now thanks to you, the Pixlr-o-matic has given me another great opportunity to make my photography to take-off with quality and ease.

    Keep up the good work, looking forward to see the future releases and what they bring! I think you're exactly on the right path with Pixlr. Cheers!
