No Picnik? No problem! PicMonkey is here!
Many of you photo-clicking moms like me may be starting to panic just a little with the closing of Picnik next month
. But along with the other Picnik alternatives
we shared a couple of months, we've found another awesome solution and in our opinion, it's even better than Picnik itself!
online photo editing site that is fast, totally free
to use. No paying for extra features, edits and effects.
To get started, simply drag a photo right from your
desktop onto their front page and you'll be taken straight to all their
editing features. You can do all the basics--like crop, rotate and
adjust your photo's colors, but that's only just the beginning. Every
photo effect you loved from Picnik is there, from vintage and cross
process to HDR, film grain, and Lomo. And if you're tempted to edit your
photo ten different ways, you have all kinds of tools
to adjust the effect's strength to get just the look you want.
Once you've chosen your favorite effects--there are
still other great options, like "makeover tools" to make
your teeth whiter, your skin softer, your wrinkles smoother, and why
yes, you can even shed those ten pounds the camera, or that last baby you had, adds.
And you bloggers or scrapbookers, PicMonkey also gives you the option
to add cool little graphic overlays and text to your photos that can be
completely customized by style and color to fit the look you're going
for. I'm thinking blog banners and buttons just got a whole heck of a
lot easier to make.
is so fast, powerful and easy to use, we bet you won't shed another tear over Picnik again. -Molly
