There’s an old proverb about not looking a gift horse in the mouth. It certainly applies in this case. Picnik is a fully web based, easy to use and FUN photo editor, available free. It’s a great tool if you need to do a quick resize of a photo, apply a red eye filter, etc., and you don’t feel like waiting 5 minutes for Photoshop to start up.
More than anything else, this type of online software is a trend to watch; it’s an interesting snapshot of how the internet is developing, and how our daily work becomes inextricably connected to being “connected.”
But don’t take my word for it; take it for a spin yourself. And let me know your thoughts by adding a comment. Check it out at http://www.picnik.com
