    Help with Ad-blocker 13th Oct 18 at 12:58 PM
    I have been using Pixlr Editor for editing photos for years, but now I can't access the site because I keep getting a message saying:

    Ad-blocker Detected
    Hi Human! We've detected that you are using an ad-blocker.

    Pixlr has remained free for so long due to the revenue from ads.

    Please help us keep Pixlr free-to-use ^_^

    CANCEL YES, I'LL WHITELIST PIXLR.COM

    Having googled this I have tried several different ways to allow ads on this site, but nothing will work for me.

    Please does anyone know an easy way to get around this or, alternatively, know of a photo editing site that allows access even with an ad-blocker on?

    Many thanks.

    Why use an online sited program?
    Just download on of the many free ones to your computer? All have differing facilities complexity and aims but try AVS4YOU, Photoscape, GIMP2. etc. I'm sure others will be suggested.


    'Edit' is rather a generalism. Post what specifically you wish to do within edits? Colouring/quality corrections, adding shapes or manipulating, and combining shots/images, converting formats etc.

    All I do really is resize photos so that I can email or upload them and also a bit of cropping - nothing very complicated.

    If you click on their site and then click "open pixlr editor" you will see the first message. Then click on Yes, I'll whitelist pixlr.com - it shows the box thing.

    https://pixlr.com

    Thank you.

    I thought that Google Chrome had its own adblocker in place now, but can't see that.

    Are you meant to run some extensions?

    You may have allowed pixlr.com in your ad-blocker but after that the site loads..
    googletagmanager.com and pub.network.

    Then you click the open editor button and it then wants to load...

    googletagservices.com
    google-analytics.com
    dsh7ky73084kb.cloudfront.net
    segment.com
    ajax.googleapis.com

    Have you allowed these also?

    No I definitely haven't allowed these sites - just pixlr.com. I wasn't aware that these were need to run pixlr.com. Another poster has suggested I look at MS Office Picture Manager, so will try and find that.

    Do you know if the Google Chrome adblocker has to be switched on, or is it an automatic thing?

    What happens if you just click "Cancel" when the ad-blocker prompt comes up.

    Bit confused by this as I already have Flash on my computer.
