Photobucket will now offer Pixlr tools, including the Pixlr Editor, which enables per-pixel editing, and the newly revamped Pixlr Express, which provides simple tools to correct, crop, resize and personalize images with effects, overlays and borders.
Software company Autodesk (NASDAQ: ADSK) announced a partnership with Photobucket, a leading dedicated photo and video sharing service, to bring Pixlr photo editing tools to Photobucket users.
Pixlr’s integration within the Photobucket website will give users access to a new set of tools for editing their images directly within the Photobucket service.
The partnership between the companies will also provide advertisers with a creative environment from which they can deliver custom, branded effects in Photobucket ad packages.[ Also Read: Facebook Likes Instagram; Buys it for $1 Billion ]
