who needs photoshop?

 

I’ve had tons of you email and comment about how much you love the pictures. Thank you so much for your kind words. Ya’ll make me feel so loved!

I figured I’d share some secrets. While I wish I had Photoshop (or rather, knew how to navigate Photoshop), Picnik does just fine for my needs. It’s actually a pretty neat site with a lot of the same features of Photoshop, just in a much simpler form!

My favorite edits: I almost ALWAYS cross process (obsessed!), then add a faded Sepia or B&W. I might add some softness, maybe a texture or two. And I really like to bring the natural color of the subject through the faded Sepia filter.

I’m no pro! But it’s FUN! BONUS: You can save your edited photo’s right from Picnik onto Photo Bucket, Picasa, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, you can email it or even just print it from there.
