Picnik is a cool, free photo editing web service. The program is comparable to photoshop, and other photo editing software, but with none of the cost. It is easy to access. Just go to picnik.com, click the "Get started now!" button, and it works right in your web browser. Photos can be uploaded from the computer, or directly from photo sharing web services, such as Flickr, Facebook, Picasa and others.
There are tons of free, fun features available to Picnik users, and they don't even require registration to try out. Users can simply go to picnik.com, select a photos from their computer or a website, such as Flickr, and begin editing. Once photos are fixed up and to the user's liking, there's still plenty of fun to be had. Users can make a scrapbook, collage, and/or slideshows to keep and share with friends and family. This awesome web application also lets people use their photos to print cards, canvases and much more!
The main feature of Picnik, that really sets it apart from other photo editing software, is that it works in the web browser. This means that there is no download required, so it doesn't take up any space on your computer. The best part is, the program can be used from any computer with internet access.
Typically, when a person wants to get some photo editing work done, he or she has to work from a home computer, where all the photos and photo editing software is stored. If this person wanted to take this work elsewhere, he or she would have to bring the computer. When the photos and software are stored online, all one needs is internet access to access and edit photos.
The free Picnik account has many great features, and is perfect for the amateur photographer. For a small payment, users can access Picnik Premium. As you would expect with a premium account, there's a lot more of everything. This means more frames, more fonts, more effects, touch-ups, and decorative stickers.
The premium account gives users access to the latest effect features. As newer and more impressive effects are developed, they will be available first to the premium users. Picnik Premium users also have access to many effects and decorations that are only available to basic members for a limited time, such as seasonal content.
Another great benefit of the premium account is the ability to upload up to 100 photos at a time, allowing for faster photo batch uploading. There is also no limit to how long photos can be stored with a Picnik Premium account.
There are three payment options available, when signing up for a premium account. For those who are looking to try it out, but don't want to commit to a long term contract, there is a one-month option for $4.95. There is a slightly discounted rate for a six months, at $19.95, and an even more discounted option for a year plan, for $24.95.
