Over 100 new overlay effects, new adjustment tools and a rejigged layout feature in the latest update to the ‘Pixlr Touch Up’ image editor for Chrome.¬†

Autodesk, who make the offline-enabled app, has brought a wide range of vignettes, bokeh, light leaks, and grunge effects from their other photographic products to the free Chrome app in order to, they say, “add things people clearly like to use.”

Also arriving in version 1.4 of the app are two new¬†adjustment options offering more advanced photographic effects, namely ‘blur’ and ‘sharpness’.

To accommodate the changes the layout has been marginally simplified. There’s now less clutter, larger effect previews and improved surfacing of options.
