Bye Bye PICNIK, Hello ipiccy.com

Bye Bye Picnik and Hello ipiccy.com

 

Those of us who have used Picnik for photo editing are very sad to see it leaving.  It was a great format and very easy to use.

 

So, today, because of the advice of so many ActiveRainer's, I decided to try ipiccy.com.

 

Since I barely know how to turn on my computer (yes, I know, I really must get caught up with technology,) I'm always a little afraid to try new things.  If it takes more than a click or two, I'm usually lost.

 

Well, I really liked how EASY ipiccy.com is and this is my first try using their collage makers.

If you haven't tried ipiccy.com yet, go ahead and jump in.  If I can figure it out - anyone can!!!!!!

 The only thing I didn't find was a place to input words - does anyone know how to do that?

Juli:

I am hanging on by my fingernails until April 19.  Then I will try other sites.  I love picnik and will shed a tear when it goes off line.

Thanks for the tip. I, too, used Picnic and will miss it. Time for me to learn something new.

I had checked this out earlier when someone else blogged about it but I did not know you could do collages.  I just went back and did one in about 2 minutes.   I think this is going to be my new favorite site.   Thanks Juli.

Brad, I checked out your link and will try all of those shortly.  The first one looks almost exactly like Picnik did.  Next weekend, for sure. Already on my calendar.

Juli:  I don't know if you have heard about this... so I will share with you.  There is something new that does some similar things to ipiccy.com... except is specializes on one particular facial feature... the one right above the lips and right below the eyes.  It's called "nosePiccy."  Have you heard of it ?  <impish, goofy grin>

Congratulations on your feature recognition.  I have been using ipiccy.com for a couple of weeks.  They appear to be adding features that we enjoyed in Picnic.

Gosh I knew this was coming, Picnik going away on the 16th! Of course I am still using it and have been neglecting trying the other photo editing choices out there. I am glad you like ipiccy.com. Learned a lot from the comments here and will have to check the new sites out!! Ugh, more time learning something new. Have a great weekend.

Hi Julie, wow I hope you find me down here. Great collage.   Iam using 

PICMONKEY.COM  I find it easy to use in a few days, also there is  AVIARY.COM  

I found a little more difficult. Since I use the highest pixels on my camera (18 pixels )

I have to down size everything.
