Picnik (Free Digital Photo Editing)

I know a lot of libraries feel that they cannot afford photo-editing software. I’ve had to by Adobe PhotoShop for my daughter’s university studies and even with the educational discount it’s not cheap!
Anyway, maybe you know about this free tool already but with Picnik you can (from their site):
“- Fix your photos in just one click
– Use advanced controls to fine-tune your results –
– Crop, resize, and rotate in real-time
– Tons of special effects, from artsy to fun
– Astoundingly fast, right in your browser
– Awesome fonts and top-quality type tool
– Basketfuls of shapes from hand-picked designers
– Works on Mac, Windows, and Linux
– No download required, nothing to install”
All this for free! But you can ugrade to Picnik Premium for only $24.95 a year which is pretty reasonable and close to the Flickr premium cost.
It will work with your digital photos if they’re stored on your computer or on Flickr, Picasa, MySpace, Facebook, Photobucket, Webshots, or WEBS.
And Comscore shows it growing faster than I knew:

Anyway, it’s an easy way to get into digital photo editing and fix up anything to a professional look. (And just think, you can transfer a work skill to your home photos!)
