Pixo Image Editor

Pixo is now available in Russian!

Hi folks,

Here’s another translation available! It is Russian (ru-RU). If you need Pixo translated to this language, set it like this:

new Pixo.Bridge({
   language: 'ru-RU',
});

Special thanks to Evgeny Glazyrin, web programmer from Yoshkar-Ola, for translating.

If you want Pixo translated in your language, you can help!

Make Pixo on your web/hybrid app look native with iOS and Android themes!

We are happy to finally announce the release of Pixo Themes, which are available from quite some time (as beta). These are pre-defined colors & styles which you can include with just a single line in your Pixo instances. Take a quick preview:

“Default”
“Light”
“Dark”
“WordPress”
“iOS” (premium)
“Android” (premium)

Together with the Default theme (the one that you are familiar pretty well with) there are also lighter and darker versions (Light and Dark).

There is a WordPress-style theme, suitable if you integrate Pixo in a WordPress site (BTW you may also check the Pixo WordPress plugin).

And yes, there are the iOS and Android themes, which make Pixo look more like native app!

How to use them

new Pixo.Bridge({
   theme: 'iOS', // Can be anything from the above, e.g. "WordPress", "Light", "Dark", "Android" 
});

iOS and Android are Premium themes and are not available in the FREE package.

Compressing and optimizing saved images

We all know how important it is to have a fast web these days. The usual bottleneck for slower websites and apps is the uncompressed images. Starting off today, Pixo offers great image compression to all exported images as a premium feature. With the help of TinyPNG, one of the best image compression services, you will have compressed images to the max without any visual quality loss.

Image compression is disabled by default. The reason is simple: compressing images takes time and results in slower image export. To enable it add the following configuration to your Pixo instances:

new Pixo.Bridge({
   apikey: 'yourapikey',
   output: {
      optimize: true,
   },
});

JPEG vs PNG

JPEG is proven as a very good image format resulting in high quality images with lowest possible kilobytes. But it has one major drawback – JPEG does not support transparency; PNG does – at the cost of too many kilobytes, or even megabytes.

Pixo has a great algorithm for detecting the best output format for the exported images in terms of higher quality and lower filesize. Unless you explicitly specify the desired image format of the output, this algorithm comes in action by default and chooses the best image format (JPEG or PNG) for the output image based on transparency, number of colors, gradients, and more.

Let us help you speed up the web!

With Pixo Premium you do not need to care more about image compression anymore!
