If you are a person like me who loves taking photos, but far from being an expert on Adobe Photoshop, Picnik is a great place to edit your photos online for free!
Picnik allows you to quickly upload a photo and crop images, add special effects, resize, sharpen and rotate your shots as well as fix the dreaded red-eye with relative ease.
For a yearly price of $24.95, Picnik Premium gives you many more options including: uploading up to 100 photos at the same time (the free option only allows to upload one photo at a time), advanced touch up features, templates and much more.
For social network users, Picnik also has applications for sites like MySpace, Facebook, ImageShack and PhotoBucket, Picasa and Flickr, which quickly becomes a handy editing tool after you uploaded photogrpahs on your social networks.
So remember, if you are photo editing novice and you need to correct a red-eye situation or you need to crop a shot your ex after a bad break-up, Picnic is a great way to go!
Note: Picnik was acquired by Google in March, 2010.
