Autodesk enhances images on Photobucket

Autodesk will provide its Pixlr photo editing tools to Photobucket users, enabling per-pixel editing as well as simple tools to correct, crop, resize and personalize images with effects, overlays and borders.

The companies say the partnership “will also provide advertisers with a creative environment from which they can deliver custom, branded effects in Photobucket ad packages” before the services’ 100 million users.

Autodesk says Pixlr has more than 25 million users and is one of the most widely used free photo editors. “It transforms any image with a fast, intuitive and robust toolset that is easy to use for inexperienced photographers with no prior knowledge of photo editing, while also offering fully featured, per-pixel editing complete with layers, adjustment tools and filters for the more advanced user.”
