EduApp: Pixlr Express

PixlrExpThere are literally hundreds of photo editing apps on all the App Stores and you can find yourself spending money on something that, quite frankly, is disappointing. Recording pupils learning in schools is a great way of sharing evidence, progress, and the work achieved in your classroom.

For basic effects editing, overlays and collages, one of the best apps available for most devices is Pixlr-Express – a free, non-advert app that contains an abundance of professional features that will make the creative editing process quick and simple for teachers and pupils.

Pixlr Express is created by AutoDesk being freely available (click here for online version + also available as a Chrome Extension) from the following app stores:
