FaceApp vs Pixlr

FaceApp and Pixlr are well-known photo editing apps to fulfill different dimensions of photo altering and elevate the quality of your image. The core purpose of FaceApp is to focus on transforming facial features. For that, it offers a wide range of filters and effects. On the other hand, Pixlr offers more sophisticated editing tools for retouching images.


FaceApp is the most popular choice of users these days as more than 60 million people are using this all over the world. AI-powered features, transitions, filters, and effects are the reason for its popularity especially its Hollywood filters are the most loved ones of the users as every FaceApp lover wants to see themselves in those filters.

FaceApp offers many features e.g. Age Transformation, Gender Swap, Smile Enhancement, Beard and Mustache Addition, Glasses Addition, Background Change, Facial Retouching, Ethnicity Change, etc users edit images with extreme ease. Another positive of FaceApp is it never compromises the privacy of users.


Pixlr is a free medium of photo editing and supports all well-known platforms such as Mac, Windows, and most importantly Android. Though it has a premium version its free version fulfills eighty percent duties as the premium version does. In my opinion, one should not buy its premium version unless it is really in need. On top of that, it has built-in templates that are helpful for professional work e.g. card designing, posters, and card-making projects.

It has a customizable dashboard and you can access all current projects in a quite easy way and manage them with your desire. Pixlr offers Photo retouching, object removal, and background adjustment-like facilities. Another edge of Pixlr is that you don’t need to save your work as it automatically saves on its cloud.

We have seen FaceApp vs Pixlr both editors have their pros and cons. In the photo editing world, FaceApp has earned a good name due to its photo editing qualities and features, especially in the face transformation area, which is matchless. It has a lot of filters and effects on facial transformation. An extraordinarily easy-to-use interface and AI technology take this software to another level that’s why more than 60 million people have been using it since its first launch. FaceApp’s facial retouching, changing hair color and age, and many other advanced features make it a favorite choice among users.

Pixlr, on the other hand, is a versatile and user-friendly software that almost goes head to head with FaceApp in photo editing features especially in face alerting. Pixlr has a set of editing tools that provide users with extreme ease to edit photos like professionals. However, Pixlr sometimes creates problems while using this app. Pixlr cannot work in offline environments and relies on an internet connection. Moreover, it gives a watermark and has limited access to a free version.

Though Pixlr has appealing features, Faceapp is matchless in facial transformation. FaceApp’s AI-based tools and features brought a revolution in the field of photo editing. Unlike, Pixlr FaceApp’s features can perform well even without the internet. After looking at this comparison we can see FaceApp stands tall and I will go with FaceApp.
