Pixlr-o-matic is a flash-based web app that allows users to add effects to images in a way reminiscent of Hipstamatic on the iPhone. The process moves the user through three processing steps, which mimic the effects of old film/developer combinations, lenses and cropping.Images can either be snapped via webcam, or uploaded to the site straight from the computer. The whole thing takes about a minute, and finished images can either be saved when finished or shared directly through imm.io, which is Pixlr’s own image-sharing service.

Though there are three steps to the process, users have the option of saving the image at any time and skipping any portion of the process.

Pixlr-o-matic comes from the same group that made the Pixlr editor back in 2008, which focused on a more standard set of image-editing tools.
