While Picnik has been around since 2006, I have never heard of it till just recently when Google acquired it. After checking out the site a bit the other day I wanted to share it with you as it just blew me away with the quality it offers. Much of the design work I do online requires me to work in photoshop which in itself is an amazing program unfortunately it comes at an amazingly high price as well.
Picnik is a free to use photo editor that works right in your web browser no download is required. The site allows you to do a ton of editing to your pictures to give them cool effects or just to make them look better in general. It allows you to take those dark images you took that do not look so great and brighten them up into a eye catching photo.
They offer an upgrade called premium which costs just over $2 a month which is a great deal for the amount of tools and add ons you get with the service.
Here is a quick example of what you can do with this service with a before and after picture.
