Picnik…have you heard?

This may be old news to some of you, but for those of you who aren’t aware of Picnik then I think I have a little treat for you. ;)  I came across this site last week and have been anxious to share it with you.  Photoshop can be a scary place for many people (I know of photographers who are afraid of it ;).  This program takes out that fear and allows you to have some fun with your photos without causing you to lose your mind.  Below are a few examples from our point-n-shoot.

This screen shot shows you what the program looks like.  This is my original image…

First, I cropped the image down so that Gabe and I were the focus.  From there, I brightened the image and added a bit of contrast.  That’s it!  Super easy!

I turned this image to black/white and added some contrast.

I brightened this one up a bit and added some contrast…

The image below imported sideways, so I rotated the image…

…and gave it more of a seventies look…just for fun.

And, a few more examples…I was having some fun in case you couldn’t tell. ;)  This was the original…straight out of the camera.

My thoughts?  I was impressed.  There are times when I think my point-n-shoot image is a bit too flat, so I will open it in Photoshop to give it more pop.  It takes a bit more time and I wasn’t necessarily wanting that much done to it.  This was perfect.  Honestly, I think this is a great tool for point-n-shoot users.  It was easy to import the image, make my changes and I could save a copy to my desktop.  They were easy to upload into facebook, as well.  As for the cost, I don’t know a lot of details, but from what I could see was that it was fairly inexpensive.

You have got to check it out!  Have fun playing with your photos!  Let me know what you think…

Nikki - I currently only have a point and shoot, so pinik is my best friend. I have photoshop elements, but haven’t taken the time to learn it yet.June 2, 2010 – 10:16 pm
