A new photo editing site is up & running... PicMonkey - is sure to be the best replacement on the web for Picnic, which is shutting down in just about a month from now :-( Bloggers rejoice!!
PicMonkey was created from "a few former Picnik engineers"...who proudly state: "If you loved Picnik, PicMonkey is back in town and better than ever. It's faster, more powerful, and easier to use." --- got that right!
|upload a pic or DRAG it onto the upper-left box to begin editing - such a fast process!!|
- The layout is super simple
- It's extremely user-friendly
- No email registration required
- Lots of wonderful editing tools (including fun facial 'touch-ups' us women LOVE)
- It appears to be extremely faster than Picnik...yippee!
- They have tons of cropping options, even a special one for "Facebook Timeline" cover pic...nice!
I'm going to have to be really patient & wait for them to roll at the 'collage' capability, but I'm sure it'll be worth it. I'm a huge fan of 'collage-ing".
Okay, now for the proof. I kinda went 'before & after' crazy (click on each for a bigger view)...but I really am a huge fan already, especially given that I JUST started using this fabulous/free/online tool today after seeing TT&J's FB status about it. I have to say I'm in love! Sad to see Picnik go...but so happy that PicMonkey has debuted!

|brighten with focal zoom|
|best ever - their 'clone' tool is easier, at least for me... check out the cleanup I did to this one... no messy counter-top, no orange stains from the pollen on the white petals...it's amazing!!|
|they have 'text' options, but not nearly as many as Picnik does/did - maybe they'll add more soon|
|enhance vivid colors|
Check it out for yourself!!
