How I Use It
My students use Pixlr Express to edit the photos we post on social media sites. They can add filters, borders, and do basic photo editing. They also use the filters and editing options to change photos and then use PicCollage to make a comic strip.
My Take
I love the option to save to the camera roll. It allows the pictures that are edited to be used in a variety of app smashing projects. Also, while there are a lot of options, I think it is pretty easy to use and self explanatory. Students in upper elementary or high school would be able to use it with little difficulty after some experimentation.
