One of the big changes in our Pixlr 3.0 update (released earlier today) is that the History Brush is now everywhere. Over the past year or two, we’ve seen that our savviest users are those who use the History Brush extensively. They understand that the History Brush provides layer-like functionality — and that kind of option gives you a whole lot more control over effects. Knowing this, we wanted to find a way to make the History Brush much more accessible. Previously, this option was buried in a menu along with other editing tools. Most people didn’t know it was there, and unless they gave it a shot they never may have figured out just how powerful it can be. So we changed it’s location. Now, it’s part of our new brush system, and you’ll find the History Brush on the left-hand side after you add any effect, overlay, border, or sticker. It’s omnipresent.
We thought it would be appropriate to center this week’s challenge around the History Brush to 1) give talented old-timers an opportunity to show off what they can do with the History Brush, and 2) encourage people new to this tool to experiment and see how much of a difference it can make. You can make anything you like using the History Brush. Just tag your photos #pixlrbrush so we can find them. As usual, we’ll accept photos tagged on Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, and Facebook. Those who are featured get a whole lot of recognition and community love — and a hefty amount of praise and emojis from us.
