I’m always looking for new photo editing online apps and graphic design tools to enhance my portfolio and to discover cool or innovative features and recently I came across PixTeller.
Pixteller helps you create graphics for various channels like social media, marketing, advertising, edit photos, and create video animations.
Interesting name and pack of features, to say the least. So, I immediately signed up to test its capabilities, and here I am reviewing it for you.

PixTeller is providing 2 video tutorials on the homepage analyzing the main and animation features of the program to help you get started.
I choose a pre-made design and I am ready to move on with some customizations.
I can add text and adjust so many options:
- fonts (approximately 100 fonts), letter spacing, line height, shadow
- border, skew, blur
- brightness, hue/saturation/lightness
- noise, pixelate, RGB, scale
- circle, concave, warp, triangle warp
I can even draw using a line tool or a pencil tool.
A very useful button is the one showing the “Layers”. When you hover over it, it shows every design element on the canvas. You can choose to disable or lock the elements.
On the same bar and next to the layers button are more design settings:
- Moving an element up and down
You can then save the project, change its visibility from public to private, and change the title.
- Clone page
- Add new page
- Zoom in/out
- Fit to window
I can add shapes:
Rectangle, ellipse, triangle, circles, stars, hashtags. Every shape is adjustable like texts.
I added a black/grey star and changed the opacity to 70% just to show you how it looks like.
- Width/height of the project
- Preset sizes
- Smart resize
So, this is what I added to the original image:
A black/grey star between the 2 images, a red mini circle on the blue trousers with a text (10% OFF), and the same red circle on the other cloth at the top .
I saved the image and when I pressed the download button the browser opened up a new tab showing the image I created and a few more options:
- Use image as it is
- Set private
You can download the image in these formats:
- JPG (Premium)
- PDF (Premium)
I could not wait to test the animation feature so I’ve come back to the image I created to proceed with animation.
When you press the animation button, the editor changes the view and a timeline with settings appears at the bottom.
What you can animate are the design elements on your project.
You can play and pause the animation project as you add elements to the timeline. This is extremely important as it lets you overview changes in real-time.
The timeline is divided into 0.1 seconds.
By pressing on any square in the timeline, the editor lets you add instances to a specific design element.
These instances work as a tool to add effects to the mini-video you’re creating.
For example, you can disable an element from showing up at a given second and making it appear again whenever you want.
For the animation to be more effective, I edited the image again.
I removed the shapes and texts I added in the previous steps.
This time, I added two squares, one red and one blue with opacity 40%. The red is placed on the woman’s image covering it from top to bottom, the blue is on the clothes’ side.
I moved these squares behind the red banner in the middle using the layer option.
I did that because I wanted to add a rotation effect and I wanted these squares hiding behind the red banner to give a smooth effect.
I added a rotation effect and I set the duration of the video at 8 seconds.
And here’s my result. I hope you like it.
