If you’re not a professional in the design or photography field it can be hard to justify purchasing professional image editing applications such as Adobe Photoshop. Beyond the sticker shock, most of these programs are complex and have a steep learning curve. Here’s where Picnik, a completely web-based photo editing tool, can give you a helping hand. Picnik offers plenty of features for no cost and requires no special software on your computer.
Each editing filter can be previewed with a simple click, along with its individual options, including detail and fade. My personal favorite is the “add snow” option. Not all of the fantastic tools are available to non-paid users, such as fine-tuning color balance, but the service is still very useful. The “Picnik Premium” option runs around $25 per year, which promises access to all editing tools, eliminates advertising,and access to premium support.
The application overall is fairly quick, has a lot of options to rival software-based programs, and has minimal advertising with no pop-ups.
