Wanna Go on a PicNik?

Wanna Go On a PicNik? A photo PicNik that is...this is a photo enhancing program that my friend in ActiveRain, Kris Ginsberg* (see below) turned me onto.  It's a free program, and you could upgrade for as little as $2  a month approximately.  Here's just a sample of before and after shots that I've taken and tweaked:

 Kris is going to work with me on a "tutorial" today, as I prepare for writing a blog post for the PhotoBlogging Contest (William Johnson on ActiveRain**see below). In the meantime, I just googled PicNik and it was really easy to walk through...I thought.

  • Upload photos-I hit that first
  • I loaded  a photo from "My Pictures" (directly from my computer)
  • It went right to Edit on PicNik
  • It gives you tabs to choose from: Autofix, Color, Exposure, etc. (I might suggest Autofix if you don't want to do it manually)
  • When done, hit Okay
  • To further enhance-hit Create
  • You can add framing, effects, text (I chose Matte frame, and then added my signature)
  • Then hit Save and Share

I just did this one quickly while writing this post.

Oh, Advance Realty, thank you!  I didn't know you'd sent a comment--sorry it took a bit! Yup, Kristine is my go-to-gal for this stuff.

Oh, Rebecca--I'm as addicted to THAT as I am to ActiveRain.

Good Afternoon Gayle,i ne

I have not been one to play around with photo-editing software, but the writing is on the wall. I will definitely checkout PicNik.  Happy Holidays!
