Picnik and Picasa

I am no photographer, but I am loving the program picnik, by picasa. Picasa is free, and does a good job. Picnik is $25 a year, and does amazing things! It is very user friendly. I asked my husband for photoshop for Christmas, and I don't feel I need it. Picnik is SO much easier to use, and you don't need a class to learn it! My friend Candy came over the other day, and showed me what you can do.

I was able to do this:


This was the original image.



The only features I used, were mascara, eye color, bright eye, and blemishes. If you want to do the same thing, go play in Picnik! It is amazing, and you will be able to teach yourself! I don't know how to show screen prints, or I would show you how my screen looked when I did it.

All you do is:

Click on your image.
Click "edit in picnik."
Click "touch up."
Click on "mascara," (or whatever you want to do.)
Size the brush however you want.
Click and drag over image wherever you want to edit.
Click, "apply."


Amazing what you can do in a few minutes!
