Let's say you run a small online business, and you need to set a solid background to the products that you're selling.

There are so many things you can do with the cut tool, from creating product images that sell to YouTube thumbnails that get people to click!

2. Crop Photo



It's now ready for Instagram!

"The medium is the message," the communication thinker Marshall McLuhan once said. This phrase means that the medium employed to communicate a message is as important as the message itself, if not more. So, you need to spend more time and attention when crafting your visual content.

As everything is going on social media these days, it would be a good idea to crop your images to the correct social media image sizes. Pixomatic's crop tool allows you to crop your images manually or to a specific aspect ratio. You'll be saving a lot of time using it since it is super easy to use!

3. Blur Image

Each option will give your image a different effect. Thanks to the blur tool, you can emphasize the foreground, create motion, and add some magic to your image.

Thanks to the blur tool, you can not only explore new ways to enhance your photos, but you can also blur your background even if you don't have the latest photography device.

You don't have to be an artist to create cool logos or photo effects. Pixomatic's low poly tool is here to help you make the coolest illustrations in the easiest way possible.

The low poly effect is the latest photo effect trend, and rightfully so! Low poly is a polygon mesh that gives images a retro effect since it was employed in creating games for older gaming devices. I'm talking about video consoles like the Nintendo 64.

To get this effect, all you have to do is drag the slider to adjust the size of the polygons!
