My daughter introduced me to my new best friend. She showed me how to edit pictures in Picnik. This is a picture I took recently of Jack Pine in our yard. The photo hasn’t been altered. It is exactly as I took the picture.
I love it…But then I played with the photo in Picnik and this is what I did to it.
Next I added the darker edge around the photo so it has more of a shadow box effect. I like the darker border around the picture. It gives it more of a shadow box look.
Then I tried this with the same photo and here is the result. It is called Holga-ish in the Picnik effect area. I love the black and white of the photo. When I first became interested in photography I took mostly all black and white, very little color photos and did my own processing.
The last part I played with was the text part. I just added the words Jack Pine Beauty to the photo. After adding the text then I rotated it and moved it to the side of the picture. There were many fonts to choose from and they even have a holiday theme font area.
This is only one area of Picnik that I played with last evening. I’m looking forward to further investigation. I know a lot of photo enhancing sites are available. I’d love to hear about your favorites. My sister-in-law loves to use PhotoShop. If she doesn’t like how a family photo turns out she has no problem moving heads around. I’m not there yet and never will be.
