You don’t have to create an account to start using Pixlr Editor, but there’s one reason you might want to — you can save your work to your own Pixlr Library. Even better, your Pixlr Library lets you pull in photos from popular photo-sharing services Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, and Google Drive.
To get started, simply sign up for an account by clicking on “Open image from Library.”
You’ll be prompted to either sign up or sign in.
Once you’ve created a Pixlr Library account, you can save your images in folders and create new folders to house sets of images. You can even connect to services like Facebook and open and save images from those services back to your Pixlr Library:
A few things to note about a Pixlr Library:
- Many services are supported with the ability to save both ways. Google Drive images can be opened from Google Drive, but they can’t be opened from your Pixlr Library.
- The Pixlr Library is only available for use with images edited in Pixlr Editor.
- A Pixlr Library account is a separate type of account from an Autodesk ID account (that you might create for a Pixlr Desktop Essentials or Pro membership). You are welcome to create both types of accounts, and you can use the same username and password for each separate service if you prefer.
