It’s time for another Data Doctors Tech Tip.

Last week we told you about Adobe's new subscription model for their popular software like Photoshop.

But if you don't need the tools very often, you probably have no interest in paying $50 a month.

And buying even an older version can cost hundreds of dollars, so how about a light-weight option that's free!

Pixlr is a full featured photo editor that works right in your web browser, no download, no wait and no money!

It’s got lots of the same tools and functionality as Photoshop, so you’ll feel right at home.

You can jump in and start using Pixlr in just a few seconds, and there's no registration required.

So, what are some of the tools that come with a free photo editor? Red eye reduction, spot healing, drawing tools, clone tools, sharpen and blur tools... and did we mention it’s free?

It even has filters that mimic HDR, glamor glow, tilt-shift, blurs, vignettes, and noise.

Of course you can control the all important Levels, Curves, Hue, Saturation, Brightness and Contrast.

If someone tosses you a PSD file from Photoshop, no sweat. It can open them too.

Sound interesting? Check it out at that's P I X L
