Picnik Photo Editor Adds New Features Today

New Features

Today, Picnik added two new features to the effects category, both of which will spice up your images for blogging and print marketing. I’ve written before about Picnik within Flickr, noting that I use it in lieu of Photoshop and although the extended features cost $24.99/year it is totally worth it (and yes, we pay for the service). Below are the before and after images using the new effects:

    I use this for Picnik for everything, quick and easy. Even a caveman could do it!

    I love picnik so much that I even wrote to the people who created it and told them how wonderful it is. I like the new collage feature. I started testing it in beta and now they have improved it so that it is even better. I used it on a recent blog post:

    Just to kind of make the photos a little more artistic.

    Oooooh Lani, Picnik is my FAVORITE on-line photo editing program. It is by far the easiest to use and makes any photo stand out. I’ve been beta testing their sandbox features which offer some really cool effects. And, yes… $24.99 is a pittance compared to what Picnik can do and how easy it is to use.

    Also, my favorite toy now is their collage tool. Oh yeah!

    Thanks for enlightening me to the fact that picnik even had a pay for use service. I’ve had fun with the free service. Now I want to know what I’ve been missing! Clicked over to Teresa’s photo and now craving apples!
