I created this card with Flickr’s new “Edit Photo” feature. It is great and I am a living testament to it being “Granny-proof.” I have not been using the Flickr site for a long time, as I have been uploading my photographs to Picasa Web Albums. I just returned at Thanksgiving time, and today there was this wonderful new announcement of on-line photo editing from Flickr. It is something I have been wanting to try, as I have Adobe Photoshop Elements on my old laptop and it is so slow and cumbersome to use, I get frustrated. I tried this and it really works. I love it.
I have not yet tried to actually do photo editing as I was so excited to be able to create a frame and write text on the photograph, something that cannot be done with Picasa2, my usual photo editing software. I suspect that the photo editing may be as good as Picasa2’s. I will try it the next time I have photos uploaded.
When you look at your photographs now at Flickr, you will see above them a new button on the right hand side that reads “Edit Photo.” The application or software that they are using is Picnik. Yes, it’s that easy – it’s a “picnik.” Kudos to Flickr!
