Never Mind

When I posted about the DrPic online photo editor yesterday, both Tammy and Jenn asked if it was better than Picnik. So, of course, I had to test it to see. Honestly, most of the time I use Photoshop to edit my photos, so I had forgotten about Picnik. I want to thank you ladies for reminding me, because Picnik is definitely better than DrPic. You can do more things with it, and what I particularly like is that you can open images from, and save your finished images to, your existing photo storage accounts, like Facebook, Photobucket, and Flickr. I've had nothing but trouble uploading photos to Facebook, but editing a photo on Picnik and then saving it to Facebook worked like a charm. Just for fun, I saved it to Photobucket, too.

So, if you're already using Picnik, then just stick with it. I'm pretty sure I'll be using it more often. It makes adding images to my posts extra easy. For instance, all those images in my last post (of jeans and the denim skirt) were grabbed off the website, edited (they needed cropped) on Picnik, saved to Photobucket, and added to my post - without opening any added software or ever saving the images to my computer. I'm wondering why I haven't been using it already.


  1. Hmmm... I've never heard of either of these sites. :)

  2. I tried out the other one yesterday, and had a hard time figuring out some of the options. Like you said, picnik offers more.

  3. Cool, I think I'll stick with Picnik then. Did you know you can do some editing in Photobucket? I just found that out the other day. I'm a little slow sometimes. hehehe

  4. I agree with you Picnik is brilliant and DrPic is just a very basic editor.

    I switch between Photoshop, Picnik and sometimes Picassa depending on what I want to do..


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
