Image Editor by Pixo


Pixo is cross-platform image editor similar to the popular Aviary editor. It can be integrated into any web app.

This plugin does exactly this – it fully replaces WordPress’ default image editor with this more powerful one.

Pixo Image Editor supports basic editing such as applying filters, adding text, crop, rotate, etc., as well as more advanced editing such as adjusting RGB, brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, and more. Pixo supports all modern browsers and is available both for desktop and mobile.

Pixo is external service that requires registration. This plugin only wraps the service into WordPress and does the registration automatically for you. The registration is with your WordPress user’s email address and a randomly generated password. To change that password visit the Control Panel.

Pixo’s Privacy Policy


  • You upload images to your WordPress site. You click the [Edit Image] button...
  • ...and this opens your image for editing! Add text and stickers, apply filters, adjust brightness/contrast...
  • ...and when you are happy with the result – just save!


Plugin installation is the same as every other WordPress plugin:

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/pixo directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
  3. The plugin will auto-generate API key for you; in case you already have registration and API key, go to Settings–>Image Editor screen to configure the plugin.


Do I have to pay for this plugin

The plugin itself is free. The image editing service is free for now as well. More information in the official website.
