Like the rest of the interwebbing world I’m quite obsessed with photo editors. I don’t have any expensive, fancy image editors on my computer; I do all my editing using Picasa. It’s free, and pretty awesome.
Here are some of my favourite features:
~ Easy Import
Just click and drag the pic you want to edit. Done.
You can crop to many different sizes and dimensions, or to set sizes like “Facebook Timeline”, different sizes for “Avatar”, and “Desktop”. The hard work is done for you!
The sharpness and clarity sliders allow you to instantly gives photos a boost.
Pretty, pretty filters.
I added text to this photo to create Paul’s birthday card.
There are lots of different buttons to choose from to add some quirky/tacky additions to your pics.
Plenty of choices for frames to give your photo the right finish.
Scariest Features ~ Touch Ups
Pebble has had highlights, a tan, eyes brightened, mascara added, lips coloured, teeth whitened, and cheeks blushed. It’d almost be funny. If it wasn’t so freakin’ scary. *shudder*
~ Save and Go
You have your edited picture downloaded to your hard drive in a click. No hoo-ha with registration and special offers and ads. Just your picture: better.
*PicMonkey is currently free but some features are ‘Royalty’ features, indicated by a small crown. I’m not sure what this means yet, but perhaps we’ll be asked to pay up soon. I might be interested, depending on cost. It is a pretty damn good tool.
