Picnik is an online photo / picture editing suite, that allows you to manipulate, enhance, crop, resize etc, pictures and photos, before saving them, either to your hard-drive, or sharing them across multiple social networking sites, such as Facebook, My Space, Bebo, Flikr and Picasa.
Because Picnik is browser based; i.e. it's on the web, there's no application to download.
What's more, it's really easy to use.
- Just upload the photo
- Select the action you want to take
- Apply the action
- Save the changes
- You're done
To quote them from the site:
A bunch of our editing tools are one-click fixes, including auto- fix, exposure, colors, and red-eye. And the others, like rotate, crop, resize, and sharpening, can be controlled with easy-to-use sliders.Once you've done that, go to the Create tab, and there is a whole myriad of custom effects; a text tool, shapes and frames.
It does a whole lot more too - like create collages, email photos.... oh, you're just going to have a look for yourself.
And all this is FREE. Incredible.
They do also offer a Premium (paid for) service, with more choices of effects and the like, and they allow you to upload more photos at a time; but, to be honest, the free version is ideal. In fact, most of the pictures on this blog are put through Picnik Paces first.
