Learning to Edit? - Best Shot Monday

So...how many of you out there have tried Picnik? I've been playing with it for a while and it's about to come out of beta testing, which means that all the fun parts will become a fee-service. There is still a bunch of free stuff, and it all links directly into flickr, which I use somewhat...

Okay, so here is two versions of a picture that I edited using Picnik. What do you think? Which do you like? (if any)




So many of us try to document our children...with my second and now my third I'm working on monthly photos. This is part of the 8 month pics that I took of my girl. I love looking at her growth each month...as I love looking at the growth of all my children and my friends' children...

Finally...just one more because it's adorable. This is what you get when you say "Smile, Sammy!" Hmm...guess we'll have to work on this one!


See more Best Shot Monday here at Picture This. This is definitely one of my favorite days of the week. Have I mentioned that I love to blog?

They're all cute! I do have to say, though, that I prefer the regular black burn around the edges to the blue. That's just me, though :)

They are soo cute! The second one is my favorite, I have never seen anything like it before! I'll have to go check out the program, I am a pretty minimal photoshop girl and am currently just using Picasa, it was a free download. Cute, Cute, Cute!!

I also like the black better but I think I would have also toned it down a bit. I think it's cutting into the baby a tad too much. I love Picnik. I mostly use Photoshop but Picnik is so fast and they have they have great options. And my girls have both done the same thing when I say smile. Cutie.

(Replying from my site) I can't believe you have a Hanna Anderson store. I thought they were just catalog. Nope, we don't have them here. I wish we did. I'll check Target tomorrow. Thanks!

I feel so behind the times, as I do absolutely nothing with my photos besides take them, and even then, all the good ones are taken by my sister.
But this is pretty cool and it looks like fun.
And that face. Ah, it makes everything feel right in the world.

My fave is the second, doesn't editing photos get addictive? I love it! Just wish there was more time to get better at it. And more time for, well, everything.

i prefer the first but i agree w/ melody that i would tone it down a little bit so that it doesn't cut into baby. editing is so much fun. :)

LOL at the 3rd pic. fun!

I prefer the first as well. I have not used Picnik yet, I'll have to check it out!

And that second shot is funny. Love what they'll do for photos!

Came her from The Egel Nest. Haven't tried Picnik yet, but thanks for the heads-up.

I, too, cherish my yeladim.

I definitely like the second one better...but I am not a fan of fading on edges...I like to see the natural corners of a photo...but that is just my personal taste :)

Cute though!

Very cute! I like the first one. And I am so with you on trying to get a "pretty" smile out of my big girl. Lately she looks like she is trying to make a scary face or a mad face. So I've just been trying for candids.
