... try www.Picnik.com

My 14 year old daughter does all her cool photo editing on there, so I thought it was a site for 'young people' ( icon_biggrin.gif ), but I finally went on there yesterday and was blown away by how easy it was to edit pictures, and how much nicer they looked. I was so impressed I paid the $24 for a 'Premium' membership, but even the free stuff version is great.

You can also just crop and resize much more easily than on Shrinkpictures.com, so it's worth it, just for that.

I'm a fan already! Hope this helps someone.

Thanks for sharing.

But darn, when I saw the title here I thought you were going to offer to edit our photos to make all our cakes look like a top professional made them.... LOL

I found Picnik a few months ago and love it..Yes it is very easy!!!I too am thinking about upgrading..Is it worth it or do you get the same stuff for free?

You can 'clone' with the Premium, which I think you can't with the free version. For me that's enabled me to clean up a bunch of my old pics with bad shadows (you copy a part of the picture - usually the background - and clone it over a less-than perfect area). This has saved me needing to remake cakes that I wanted better pictures of, and since I'm working on a new website I think it's saved me some money.

Also my daughter is happy because she now gets the extra fonts and backgrounds, plus the other 'touchup' functions etc. icon_biggrin.gif

Does anyone know why the site rarely loads for me? I used to be able to get around that by going thru Facebook, but I can't find it on there anymore.

Thanks so much for posting this. I've got a new laptop and needed sometype of photo editing program to work with.
