Went on a Picnik

One of my readers invited me to go on a “Picnik”. Friday’s Macro entry was a typical SOOC (straight out of camera) shot. I have no editing software other than cropping, black/white or resizing. I mentioned wishing I could play with my photos a little more and she recommended using the free Picnik. I love it. Not only could I add rounded edges (love ’em) and that neat little black (vignette) bordering, but I could wash the color out, pump the color up, etc.

I wanted to show you some of my edits. Nothing beats pictures of the kids, but I am really liking the bee with some pumped up color and a little sharpening. The baby bird melts my heart. What do you think? What type of editing do you like best? What program do you use? Any tricks you can teach me?
