What are people saying about Pixeluvo

Gunderic Hagen Hi!

I use Gimp which is free but NOT user friendly, which results that many times I am not able to do what I want. What I do most is, super imposing one image over another, different sizes and changing the background color.

QUESTIONS: Can I do that with your software? Is it easy to do?

Please answer in plain English avoiding words like "masks", "layers" and the like which I don't understand and am not interested in learning.
Jan 12 2014 at 12:48am Copy Link
Andy Gill Yes, Pixeluvo can definitely handle superimposing images. It's very easy to do, you would simply open both images and then cut and paste one image onto the other. You can then move, resize and rotate the top image with the transform tool (Edit-Transform-Rotate/Scale or Ctrl+T).
Changing the background color can be done in a number of ways, I'd need to know a little more about exactly the effect you wanted to achieve to give you more guidance on the best method for you.

There's no need to learn about layers and masks if you don't want to, but they're not really difficult things to grasp, and they certainly open up more creative possibilities. If you want a gentle introduction you could start by reading the page on layers and masks here: where I try to explain things in an easy to understand manner.

Thierry Martin Hi there,
I've been a pro photo seller for nine years and I'm using a few different photo editors. I just gave a try to Pixeluvo and I must say I'm favorably impressed. This program is fast, the UI is well done and there are 22 adjustment layers, I mean predefined ones
The effects offered are interesting and the ability to select an area is great.
I think I'm gonna buy it.
Jan 12 2014 at 1:39am Copy Link
Andy Gill Thanks for your comment, I'm glad that you find Pixeluvo to your liking.
I'm always looking for ways to improve it, so if you think it's missing something essential, or if you have any other suggestions then please let me know, either via the website forum, or at
Pictopotamus - Jan 12 2014 at 1:48am Copy Link
Gunderic Hagen Regarding backgrounds, what I normally want do is simply change the color.....

Actually most of the things I need is "plain vanilla" stuff. However theses websites in many cases (most) are designed in a complicated way. You will NOT find normally an option like "change the background color"...that would be too easy..... They normally have a host of "layers" and "masks" kind of talk and what have you which tells me absolutely nothing. I just want to change the background color!!! Where do I have to click???

How straightforward are the options in your software?
Jan 12 2014 at 4:48am Copy Link
Thierry Martin OK I think this program to be still young. I'm just iscovering it but I will make my Youtube review (HD video) later. The Ctrl key + Mouse wheel is a very important feature for me, that's great you added it. Because to have to make Ctrl and ++ isn't good for youi have to lose your focus from the picture.
Jan 12 2014 at 5:42am Copy Link
Andy Gill If the background is made up of a fairly uniform color (for example a portrait taken against a uniform backdrop), then the "replace color" filter may do what you need. Alternatively you could select the background with the 'magic wand' tool, and then apply any of the color correction filters to get the color you want.
Pixeluvo doesn't have a 'Change Background Color' button, but it does give you a lot of fine control over your images, including things like selecting areas of the image to adjust, and all kinds of color filters.
From the sounds of it, if changing the background color is your main requirement, then a more specialised foreground/background separation program might suit you better.
Pictopotamus - Jan 12 2014 at 6:35am Copy Link
Gunderic Hagen You know, I really fail to understand why is it that a simple thing like changing the background color should require a ".......more specialised foreground/background separation program might suit you better" Man, we are talking about changing the color of the background! Just in case, from yellow -for example- to rocket science.... As I said, I just want to do very simple things and am looking for a software where I can do this easily and will not be lost in drill down menus full of mumbo-jumbo.. This is all I want and would like to know if yours is the type of software I'm looking for.
Jan 12 2014 at 6:50am Copy Link
Andy Gill If the background is plain yellow then it should indeed be a trivial matter, and either of the two methods I outlined earlier should work with just a few clicks. It's difficult in general to give accurate advice without seeing an example of the type of images you are dealing with. If the background was something more complex such as a landscape or a room full of people then changing it is a correspondingly more difficult matter and is not something that most software would be able to accomplish in a single click.
Pictopotamus - Jan 12 2014 at 7:07am Copy Link
Gunderic Hagen Well, I trust then that I will be able to accomplish the amateurish stuff I normally need....I think I will buy it.
Jan 12 2014 at 8:21am Copy Link
Andy Gill Glad to hear it! If you do get stuck with something then please send a mail to and I'll try my best to help you out.
Pictopotamus - Jan 12 2014 at 8:28am Copy Link
Gunderic Hagen OK, thanks

Andy Gill You should get a receipt from FastSpring (they handle the actual sale stuff). If you haven't received one let me know and I'll chase it up.
Pictopotamus - Jan 12 2014 at 9:20am Copy Link
DrTeeth I was playing with this earlier on. I tend to collect image manipulation programs. I do like the look of this one. What were the dates of the various releases? I like to see that a program is under active (and reasonably fast) development.

I applied a skrew to an image and there was no way that I could find *within* the program to undo my changes. Yes, I did try the undo function, but it did not work.

Any ideas?
Jan 12 2014 at 9:55am Copy Link
Andy Gill The first public release was version 1.1 in September last year. Since then there have been two new feature releases (one in November and one last week) and two bug-fix releases. So I'd say that development was fairly active, yes :)
I'm not sure I understand what you mean by a 'skrew'. Afaik everything should undo correctly. Could you provide some more details? If you send a mail to I'll see if we can get to the bottom of it.

Louis H This one is nice and I am still giving it a workout. One small dislike is that the demo video runs too fast and before one is able to get a good look at the results being obtained, the picture changes to another feature. My suggestion would be to slow down the demo video and allow for a closer look at the results when using the features on display.

Specific question about the program itself.

Is there any way to have a Before/After side-by-side Comparison of the image I am working on? I do much better when I can see the actual changes I am making in comparison to the original image. When my only option is that I have to flip back and forth between images, only having one image visible at a time, I tend to avoid using such a program. Is this feature available or actively planned for an update? Thanks!
Jan 12 2014 at 12:16pm Copy Link
Andy Gill Currently there isn't a way to do that, but it sounds like it could be a very useful feature. When applying filters or effects I could certainly add an option to the filter dialogs to show a side-by-side comparison as well as or instead of the current option to enable/disable the preview. Would that be sufficient do you think?
Pictopotamus - Jan 12 2014 at 12:40pm Copy Link
CodeDog Purchased. Looks like a nice addition to my current list of image editors.

I did make a couple small suggestions for future versions in your forum, but I like it so far...
Jan 12 2014 at 3:22pm Copy Link
Thierry Martin I will upload a full HD video to Youtube tomorrow, 15 or 20 minutes. Some features are very nice and your too fast video doesn't show them

Twp features that would be nice :

- In the Resize panel, we need % (pixels and inches are good but % is useful too)
By the way which algorithm is used; lanczos ?

- with the Crop tool it would be nice to have predefined ratios like 3;2, 4:3; 16:9
For instance I have many "old' pics in the 4 to 3 ratio, it would be nice if I could make a crop but using the 16:9 ratio because I can't calculate the numbers when I draw my cropping frame ;)
Jan 12 2014 at 3:24pm Copy Link
Louis H @Andy. that would be helpful. Or perhaps you could make the navigation window sizable? In the meantime I came up with a work around which, while not optimal, is usable. I opened two runs of the program and sized them so that they are side by side. I leave the original photo in one and do my edits in the other. It gives me enough of a comparison for being able to work the way I normally do.

(I need a larger image for comparison than the navigator window currently provides - my eyes are not getting any younger and the side by side comparison is very helpful for me)

Again, this is not optimal, but doable, for now. Enough so that I feel comfortable taking advantage of today's discount. From your interaction here with folks I have trust that you are indeed invested in improving this program based on user feedback. Thank you for arranging with BDJ for the discount today.
Jan 12 2014 at 7:06pm Copy Link
Metta Zetty Just purchased Pixeluvo, and I'll send any outstanding questions to your support email address once I have a chance to work a bit more with the software.

In the meantime, I love the clean, simple and attractive user interface! Very appealing for this photo editing newbie.

Also, in light of the fine print on this purchase (see below), will my next major upgrade be at a discount after purchasing this product today using the BDJ discount -- or will my next major upgrade be at the full upgrade price?

"Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for minor versions only. For versions after that, upgrades will require additional payment, which will be discounted. It will be discounted only if you've purchased the last major version."

Jan 12 2014 at 8:30pm Copy Link
Andy Gill @Thierry Martin: Both those features sound fairly straightforward, and I agree they would be useful to have. I'll add them to the roadmap. The actual filter used for resampling is Mitchell-Netravali. I look forward to seeing your video.

@Metta Zetty: Upgrades for all 1.x versions are included free of charge. The upgrade to version 2.0 will be the same price for all owners of version 1 (and discounted compared to the full purchase price of version 2). I hope that makes sense.

A big thank you to everyone who has commented, I will definitely be taking your suggestions seriously, and hopefully you'll see some of them in the coming releases.

Jon Spain I'm also interested in the colour change, which I can't make head or tail of. It would be good to have two sets of RGB values, one for the start colour and the other for the end. Any chance of that, please?

Jan 25 2015 at 4:33am Copy Link
Andy Gill Are you referring to the Replace Color filter? If so, then I don't see why I couldn't add support for a different interface, under the hood replacing one rgb value with another is exactly what it is doing, so it should be pretty straightforward. Since it's a small job I'll put it on the todo list for the next version.
Pictopotamus - Jan 25 2015 at 6:47am Copy Link
Jon Spain Thank you, Andy, I bought this morning. Please tell me when RGB is there.

Roberto I'm in.
Works quite fast. Really easy to use. Usually I go with xara or gimp, but I think this one could replace gimp. Some feature that i would like is having a preview when saving a jpg, showing the quality and the filesize :)

Bryan Thomas One feature that I find very useful when editing photos is a simple way to see the original photo, one of the best I have used is that in SAGELIGHT. The feature may be available in Pixeluvo but I haven't found it yet.

Markus J Bought the program yesterday. Have to say I'm impressed! Program is fast and uncluttered. Very nice. Fantastic program. Especially for the price.

Shame that the program does not support Samsung RAW Image format.

Feature request: Deformation grid tool similiar to one in LazPaint.
Jan 27 2015 at 2:37am Copy Link
Ivan Helfman Is Pixeluvo 100% compatible with Photoshop files?
Jan 27 2015 at 3:37am Copy Link
Andy Gill @Markus - Thanks! I'm reliant on a third party library for the RAW image file support, but if you could send me a sample samsung file, I can at least test with it, and hopefully be able to support it once the library I use is updated. Deformation grid sounds cool, I'll investigate how much work that would be and maybe add it to the todo list.

@Ivan - Sorry no, currently Pixeluvo doesn't read or write psd files. I'm considering adding basic support, but 100% compatibility will unfortunately never be possible due to the different feature sets between the programs (i.e. there are things Pixeluvo can do that Photoshop can't and vice versa).
Pictopotamus - Jan 27 2015 at 7:31am Copy Link
viewoflife Okay, I bought it. I liked what I briefly saw in the video, but what really sold me is the developer's involvement and responsiveness I see on this page. That speaks volumes for his product and customer service. Thanks Andy and BDJ!

Daniel Kamman Windows 10 is not listed under Platforms on BitsDuJour or on -- Will it work on Windows 10 (which is what I have)?
Aug 24 2016 at 2:06pm Copy Link
Andy Gill Yes, Pixeluvo works fine on Windows 10. I'll add that info to the website.
Pictopotamus - Aug 24 2016 at 2:38pm Copy Link
Daniel Kamman Thanks for your quick reply that Pixeluvo works on Windows 10. I downloaded the trial and find it interesting (plus it gets great reviews/comments online).

On January 27, 2015 your wrote in part "there are things Pixeluvo can do that Photoshop can't and vice versa"

To help me evaluate Pixeluvo, it would be great to have a list of "things Pixeluvo can do that Photoshop can't".

I'm interested in color adjustments, rather than effects such as Light Glow and Film Grain. My need is to adjust colors in images of acrylic paintings, jewelry, and perhaps other crafts. I currently use Photoshop CS2 and Photoshop Elements 14, along with Digital Light & Color's Color Mechanic Pro. I'm hoping that Pixeluvo would add color adjustment capabilities beyond what I can do now. I don't expect you to know in detail what those 3 can do, but a comparison with Photoshop in general would be helpful.
Aug 24 2016 at 8:58pm Copy Link
Andy Gill Ok, sure.
You can find all the color adjustments in the Color menu. First up there's the Quick Color filter, which allows you to choose from a selection of preset adjustments (kind of like instagram) - may not be that useful for you if you're into fine control, but it can be handy if you're in a rush!
Then you have staples like you would find in most applications - things like vibrance, hue/saturation, curves, levels etc. These work exactly like photoshop (and other apps) for the most part - the exception being that the curves filter also allows you to adjust the saturation, making it extremely powerful for pretty much any kind of color adjustment, if you're in to that level of control.

Then there are some that you won't find in Photoshop like temperature, split tone and cross process (although temperature and split tone do appear in Photoshop's RAW importer, but not in the main app).
The threshold filter also has more options that Photoshop's version, allowing you to create softer and more stylized looks.

All the color filters are usable as adjustment layers too, so you can keep your edits non-destructive.

Hope that helps.

Glen Hilton Hello Andy, nice fast alternative image editor. Any way of saving user defined brush options ? Also no drawing tool (line/arrow), it would be a useful addition.
Aug 25 2016 at 9:26pm Copy Link
Andy Gill Sadly there isn't currently any way to save user presets for the brushes I'm afraid. Yes I agree that support for vector shapes would be very useful, I've been wanting to add it for while - hopefully it will make it into a future release at some point.
Pictopotamus - Aug 26 2016 at 3:31am Copy Link
Glen Hilton Thanks Andy, Pixeluvo looks like a really good option for quick image editing without unnecessary bloatware used with some of the full featured editors. Look forward to the deal and hope you'll have time to implement a few more user suggestions including basic drawing tools in a later update.
