Picnik is your friend!
No, this isn't another post about my nursery. It just happens to be a picture of the nursery used for this post.
I have a little point-and-shoot camera that does a great job, but its abilities are limited. Enter picnik.com.
Here is the after: I played with the exposure and the color balance and added my blog name.
Is it perfect? No. Does it work for me? Yes. Do I still have a lot to learn? You bet!
Perhaps you'll appreciate the 'after' more once you've seen the 'before'.
Dark and greenish... Bleh!
Here's another example. First the edited version:
I simply used the 'autofix' feature, then blurred the fleck of dirt on my son's nose. Once again, not perfect, but it makes a good shot a great one.
If you're looking for a free, easy-to-use photo editing program, give picnik.com a try. If you want to pay a little, picnik has great options there too. Enjoy!
