Quick and Easy Photo Editing Anywhere


Anytime is a fine time for a Picnik. Yeah, I know I spelled picnic wrong, but Picnik is a really slick photo editing website that you can use without going through the drudgery of registering, setting up an account and logging in every time you want to use it. Best of all, this service is free.

The steps to get started are easy. Just go to http://www.picnik.com/, upload a photo using the big green button on the site, use the easy menus to edit your photo and then once you're happy with the edits, save your changes.

You can really do a lot with Picnik. One of the neatest features is the Auto-Fix, which uses its best judgement to make whatever tweaks are necessary to make the photo look great. For instance, if the picture is dark, it will adjust the brightness and contrast to a good level. You can also rotate, crop, resize, sharpen, fix red-eye and adjust colors and exposure on photos.

While Picnik is no Photoshop or high-end photo editing software package, it can do the most popular functions that the average student or teacher might need. The basic function and design of the online application make it a quick and easy way to make a fast edit no matter what computer you're at.
