A couple of days ago I got a full year’s premium subscription to Picnik from Alli. Alli uses this to make here awesome photographs look even better. I left a comment on her blog and won a contest for that membership. I’d never used or heard of Picnik before Alli told me about it.
I signed up today and decided to give it a try. I played around for 4 minutes with an image that I had taken of a Gecko on my Gecko hunt last week.
I cropped it, edited it and made some color changes.
Picnik is incredibly simple to use and the interface is also very user friendly. It also integrates with Flickr so easily too. Well, when I posted the edited image to Flickr I got an immediate response. I mean immediate, two people commented, one favorite the image and the other asked me to add the image to his group. Wow, that is the fastest response time ever.
I am growing a beard and it is pretty light right now so I took a self portrait and then uploaded it to Picnik, cropped it, then played with the cool create function. The one thing that I can’t do with Picnik is make very fine edits like I can in PhotoShop Elements. I like the photo and how grainy it is. Makes the beard pop a bit.
I’ll be doing an in depth post about the uses of Picnik in the future. Maybe as a guest post.
And I’ll keep you apprised of the beard growth, who knows I may keep it, I may not.
