I know there are a bunch of you out there like me. You like to take pictures, sometimes they don't turn out the way you want to, and you need a way to edit them. I know there is Photoshop and other nice photo editing software out there, but I just don't get it. I've read tutorials, but the "layers" and all the other Photoshop lingo just never stuck. I need something that's a little more real, a little more user friendly to make my pictures a little better. Enter...
Picnik. After trying it out, reading reviews, and getting to know the program a little more, I upgraded to a premium account. Best decision, and totally worth the 25 bones for a whole year. (Stay tuned, you may be seeing another picnik project coming soon!) So today's tutorial is done entirely through Picnick, using a premium account. If you haven't upgraded, I suggest at least consider it. I have found it to be totally worth the investment, and it's not even a quarter of the price of Photoshop!
Let's get started shall we?
Now, I am no professional photographer. (Obviously!) My photo editing skills are far from perfect, and those professionals using a fancy program will obviously get you better, more professional looking results. So keep that in mind when you are editing your pictures. Hopefully my scratch of the surface tutuorioal will help you on your way to getting a little bit of a nicer shot.
