I don’t negate the power of desktop photo editing software like Photoshop or others. The advantage of these desktop software is you can work offline and has ability to open and editing high resolution photos without a stutter. The disadvantage is you can only access your photos from your computer, it does not support to sync your photos to the cloud, which allows you to access your photos from anywhere.
Pixlr offers four popular cloud photo editors that are available in multiple platforms: Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android and the web-based, allow you to use the app and edit your photos and access it from anywhere.
Pixlr for Desktop is the 4th tool of the Autodesk company, alongside the online Pixlr Editor, Pixlr-o-Matic and Pixlr Express (for mobile: iOS & Android). These apps are standalone apps, so you can’t synchronize your photos between these platforms.
With the Pixlr for Desktop, you are easy to handle high resolution photos and make creative photos. It’s not a competitor of Photoshop and even different to the Autodesk’s flagship, the Pixlr Editor, but Pixlr for Desktop has enough features to help you create a great photo.
