I am an old Adobe Photoshop fan. I admit that. I love the software and its just getting better and better. But I also admit that it does have a tough learning curve. With Picnik.com I found a free online photo editing that actually seems to work pretty well!
Picnik.com just released a new set of scary Halloween themes and effects to add to your photos. So off course I had to try them out. I picked one of my old photos – from when I was in the music business (and yes, you do need hair like that to be a good producer )
If you haven’t tried out Picnik.com yet you should.
And no, I am not affiliated with them in any way. It’s a clean link.
One thing I really like about Picnik.com is the way they have made the (now almost classic) “Freemium” business model even more attractive by not requesting any user registration at all to use the basic version of the product! That really rocks!
I just hope for them that the very inspirational way they try to convert you – by letting you see all the cool effects you don’t get for free, will work well enough for them. But I suspect it may will.
All in all Picnik.com does off course not replace Photoshop for pro users – or just graphic enthusiasts like me but it does in fact solve many simple issues with photo editing quite well and with the simple integration into most online photo sharing sites it could come very handy working with your blog or product site.
