Picnik pioneered online photo editing, but recently closed its doors. It did not take long for another online photo editor to be developed.
The user interface is very intuitive and loads fast. The features range from the basic crop and sharpen to applying advanced effects, all with a click of a button. I decided to try out this new editor to see what it can do.
This is the control panel where you do all your editing. The creative options are located on the left hand side. I loaded a photo (taken by my manager, Holly Berlin), and played with some of the features.
In the Basic Edits, I tried my hand at recoloring this photo. I tested out the saturation and temperature feature. Next I worked in the Effects panel, which gives you a one-click effects ranging from Urban effects to Polaroid style coloration. I decided to work with the “Orton” effects, which gives the photo a soft magical feel.
According to PicMonkey, certain features are free for the time being, but may have a cost applied to them in the future. If you would like to try out this great new online photo editor, go here: http://www.picmonkey.com/. Tell us what you think!
