Picnik anyone?… PAD #1068

Picnik anyone?... PAD #1068

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.

Gecko Hunt #13
Original Image

I cropped it, edited it and made some color changes.

Picnik 1st Edit
Finished image after time in Picnik.

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.

  1. Looking good! I have noticed if you go to flickr, click on edit photo and use the features there, it is missing some of the premium features of regular picnik. But I love me some picnik.

    alli’s last blog post..Photo cards are fun

  2. I hadn’t realized that you could edit the photo from Flickr in picnik. I think I’ll go picnik then Flickr. It is a pretty sweet program overall. Thanks again for the contest.

  3. Layne,
    Very observant. I really wanted to take tht out using Photoshop. That is the one limitation of picnik that I found, I couldn’t get rid of that stray hair. And that one thing about the image really bothered me. But it is from my mustache and not from my nose. That one hair is always a pain because if I move my lips a particular way the hair goes right up my nose and tickles me. I hate it.

  4. Princesse, haven’t seen you in these parts in a while. Very nice to see you back. I’m continuing to grow it. Hopefully it will fill in more before next week’s demos. It looks more filled in in the photo above.
