Picnik is the perfect online image editor for the average user’s needs; an tool that lets you easily manage, edit, touch up and share images online.
Based on Flash technology, Picnik lets up upload pictures from your hard drive (up to five at a time with the free account) or import them from online galleries such as Picasa, Flickr, MySpace, Facebook, Webshots and Photobucket. If you only need to edit one single photo, you don't even need to register!
Once loaded on Picnik, you can work on your photos in a variety of ways. The Edit tab includes a bunch of tools to optimize and touch up your pictures. You can rotate, crop and resize them, as well as adjust exposure and colors, and also fix the red-eye effect. The Create tab lets you apply a series of effects to your photos, including stickers, frames and special filters – although most of these effects are available only for Picnik Premium users.
Picnik is no substitute for professional tools like Photoshop, but it will certainly do the trick for most users. It features a clean, eye-catching interface and only requires an email address to sign up.
With Picnik you can easily edit, optimize, fix and share your photos online.
