  • We're Going Places

    PixelSugar 1.0 is just the beginning. We have bold plans to add features & functionality at a lightning-fast pace. Check out what we have planned.

Independent, but plays well with others

Unlike plugins, PixelSugar requires no host application. But if you’ve got a Lightroom-centric workflow, we’ve got you covered there too. PixelSugar works as an External Editor in Lightroom, so you can keep using the workflow you’re comfortable with.

Find Your Own Style

PixelSugar encourages you to play until you find the perfect look for your images, but makes it easy to create a consistent style too. Freely combine, tweak, and rearrange over 80 built-in filters. When you’ve perfected your look, save it as a recipe to apply over and over. Consistency has never been easier.

Easy Basic Corrections

Nearly every photo needs a little bit of basic correction to exposure and white balance. PixelSugar puts basic corrections right at your fingertips with a special Corrections panel, and easy hotkey access. We’ve even optimized our corrections separately for raw and jpeg images, so you get great looking results quickly.

No Catalog Required

No need to import your images into a catalog, and no confusion about where your edits are. With PixelSugar, you can just open an image and get started. No more broken references to files you’ve moved. PixelSugar lets you manage your library your way, and makes it easy to see where your edit data is stored.
