Design Basics Video: Cut It Out

A few weeks back, we let you know about our new Pixlr Editor Design Basics series. It’s a series of videos made just for people who are new to Pixlr Editor. We know that tons of people stumble across our online app looking for a free Photoshop alternative, and we know that not all of them actually have experience using an app like this. If you are a Photoshop expert, try to remember the first time you opened that app with a goal in mind but no way to figure out how to accomplish it.

This week, we’re adding another new video that deals with one of the most important tasks of all: cutting stuff out. Whether you need to cut out a logo and make a transparent PNG or remove a background from a portrait, this video will help you figure it out. We try to keep things basic, lighthearted, and focused on the task at hand so you don’t have to wade through a bunch of 20-minute tutorials. Short and to the point. Check out this video if you’ve always wanted to learn how the magic wand and lasso tool works.
