This is certainly something worth a reblog! I am downloading it today and going to play with the trial software this week. Since we just got back from the PGA Golf Show in Orlando, I have a ton of photos I can play with. Once I know the ins and outs this is something I can use with real estate photos as well!

Thanks, Cindy, for blogging about this software. Without Picnik, all of us will be looking for alternatives!

Like thousands of others when the news broke of the photo editing tool Picnik shutting down I groaned.  There are times when a quick fix is needed and doesn't require a full version of Photoshop or Gimp.

In the past I turned to Picnik for quick edits.  In this case it was removing the blocks and lightening up the photo of this old piece of farm equipment before I posted it in a Speechless Sunday post on entitled "Welcome to 2012-Out With The Old In With The New."

This past week I've been playing with Photoshop Express on-line.  Not only does it allow you to do simple "blemish removal" as Picnik did but it allows you to take a photo and change the colors with their "pop" tool.  Here is a before and after of my bike that I had taken last summer after a ride.

Not only could I remove the water faucet on the brick wall but I could change the background and the color of the bike.  Now this isn't something we might do with a photo of a home but it certainly gives us some options. 

For those of us who like to play with photography they are lots of good free tools available.  I'll never be a professional photographer but if you are like me and like to find simple options then you might want to check out Photoshop Express.
