How to install the free editor

To start enjoying inPixio’s free photo editor, all you need to do is download the software and create an account.


Downloading the software

You can download the software from the free editor page.

Click on the downloaded file at the bottom of your screen. Alternatively, save the .exe file to your desktop and double click to start installation. Then follow the steps in the installation wizard.

The software will open in Demo mode, meaning that all your pictures will contain watermarks. To access the free features with no watermark, you need to create an account.


Creating an inPixio account

When you first open the program, you’ll see the “Create an account” window.

Free trial and premium features

Please note that when you activate your inPixio account you will immediately start a free 5-day trial of Photo Studio with access to all features. At the end of this period, the software will automatically switch to the free version.

Some tools are not available in the free editor, these are marked “Premium”. You can still test these tools; a watermark will be added to the picture. Find out more about the features available for free editing.
