AbstractThe introduction of cloud technologies in the educational process is a priority for domestic education. The selection of appropriate services that can be used to improve the educational process remains a key issue in solving these problems. The authors note the possibility of using cloud services in all areas of education and emphasize the availability of online set of tools for processing graphics files, which provides users with corresponding software for creating and designing graphics files, provision of server storage space, as well as access to all saved assets at any time from any device with Internet access. The article describes the experience of using cloud services in the educational process of training computer science teachers of Zhytomyr Ivan Franko State University, in particular the online graphic editor Pixlr. Peculiarities of settings and functionality of this software product are described. A detailed description of the cloud service is given and a comparison is made with the most typical software products used to create computer graphics, illustrated with examples and screenshots. The use of the Pixlr Editor cloud service to solve one of the most common image processing issues, namely tone adjustment, is considered. Also, the authors mentioned the negative aspects of using cloud services. Further perspectives of researches are outlined.
