Having a Picnik

Want to be able to edit your photos without having to purchase the oh so expensive Adobe Photoshop? Well, Flickr provides a great tool - Picnik. You can upload your photos and have all the fun you want with editing your photos...for free and without having to register! A commitment free photo-editing site! Who knew that existed. Though if you would like to use their premium tools then you do have to pay $24.95 a year...that's right a year! What's that about $2 a month? Steal.
Below is an example of a photo I took in the summer of 2007 when my parents were visiting me in Boston. We were driving around looking for something to do when they saw a pow wow going on. Feeling annoyed that we were going to be checking this out I just decided to take pictures to show my annoyance of being there. In the end I took some great photos and had a great time listening to the music and watching the people dance.

Before.
After.

Isn't that kid a cutie? Sure he looks like he's giving me the "Don't take my picture, eye" but I love this shot. Anyway, check out the website and have a ball playing with all of the neat effects and tools that they have to offer.

That is a great tip about Flickr - you know I have noticed alot of bloggers use it. I have a Mac and use iPhoto - which is great because it allows me to do the same stuff.....however storage can be an issue.... so this is a great tip!!!!
