Photo Editing with Picnik

Apr 2011

Being a neophyte in the world of blogging has its obvious disadvantages. Trying to balance the learning curve with getting posts done is challenging to say the least.  I don’t have to tell anyone that’s tried how easy it is to start the day with the best of intentions and before you know it, you’ve travelled to one too many sites and hours have passed.  Putting together a schedule for writing and learning has helped a lot and today is one of those experimental days.  Welcome to the world of Picnik.

I was excited to see that the site had a tool for writing directly on the photo, and as I navigated thru, thought it had lots to offer. Unfortunately, I am not one to read directions, and I quickly got frustrated with uploading photos.  Note to self-next time take the tutorial!  The best part of the site for me was the collage section-paydirt-just what I had been trying to figure out for my blog and incorporating photos within.

I still have a long way to go, but am excited by Picnik and think it will bring creative new ways to make Greenwithrenvy more attractive and interesting for my readers. Do you have a favorite photo editing program?  I’d love to hear from you.
