Here's another post about iPiccy. I did try it but did not find it to be as easy as Picnik. BUT it will do until I can find something else. 11 more days of Picnik. :( Boo Hoo!!
However, some many of my online friends were hoping to actually find a replacement editor that was similar or at least closer to the same look and feel of Picnik’s site. Is there such a site?
Well here it is! iPiccy.com is the closest you’re going to find to Picnik.com. The look and feel are more similar than any other site I’ve seen. iPiccy might actually be Picnik’s twin brother. Once you explore the site, you’ll see what I mean. iPiccy is 100% free, no registration required, and offers many of the same features and benefits that Picnik does and more.
Grabbing any image or photo is easy. Just click the appropriate button and GO! The editing options are endless and the ability to create some really cool customized graphics and images will be limited only by your creativity and of course your time and schedule. The workspace on iPiccy will be easy to navigate, especially for Picnik users, and will feel just like your old Picnik stomping grounds.
There are multiple effects with single click options at your fingertips. These will make your photos and images really “POP” and if you use a combination of the wide variety of tools and options available, the possibilities will be endless.
In literally minutes, you’ll be able to adjust your contrast, auto-correct colors, customize images, fix blemishes, remove red-eye, lighten and darken graphics, and even add text overlays, reflections, shadows and more. Having the ability to utilize some really cool effects without being a graphics designer makes iPiccy one of my TOP CHOICE recommendations and a great replacement for Picnik.
Here’s a sample we just put together for a Valentine show promotion:
We added a border,
created a matting,
went with a sepia effect,
added a thick pencil sketching,
made it black and white,
re-sized it keeping constraints,
added a drop shadow border,
dropped some text at the bottom and saved to the desktop.
We then emailed it as a .jpg attachment to the event promoter.
This all took about 3 minutes from beginning to end.
Check out iPiccy.com and compare it to Picnik. If you’ve never used Picnik.com, then you’ll have discovered a very cool free online photo and image editing site that you’re going to enjoy. If you have used Picnik, and feel as though you’ll be losing a best friend come April, I can promise that iPiccy will make the hurt a whole lot less. In fact, I think some of you will like iPiccy better than Picnik. Happy creating, enjoy~
