Picmonkey

I have talked before about how awesome Picnik is (online photo editing software), and I was devastated to discover they had been bought by google and it was changing some and moving over there and the site was shutting down.  Boohiss.  I had a paid membership.

Some of the team members from picnik have however got together and made picmonkey.  And it's GREAT.  It's free to use now, but there are some advanced options that I probably will pay for when it goes official.  I had a play around with it.


This is a photo I took this morning to send to my bestie who lives in the US who doesn't believe I wear colour these days, let alone yellow.  Yellow is one of my fave colours.  We have had a broken tank pump and had no water to the house for 2 days so I felt FERAL (no showering and face washing mostly with baby wipes), was up ALL NIGHT with a teething nine month old and a nightmaring 3.5 year old, so you know, NOT FEELING SO CHEERY.  In a pretty shitty mood to be honest.  GOSH!  You wouldn't know it.


HEY SAL, HAVE YOU LOST WEIGHT, YOU LOOK FABULOUS!




YE OLDE WORLDE SAL


Oh LOOK, I AM SO FLIRTY, DIRTY AND FUN LOVING.

etc, etc since I am SICK OF LOOKING AT MYSELF.

I did these in about 2 minutes, but there about a zillion ways to edit and I am GLAD for it.  I know some people who were fans of picnik who might like to know about picmonkey.

Ooh, thank you for this! I'll have to check it out. I particularly liked picnik for collages so I'll see if this one can do them too.

Commiserations on the teething - Auden just got his first tooth and another is on the way through (and another six more are sitting right there). I had no idea it was possible to be more tired than when he was a newborn. I went to a Brown Owls meetup today, got out my sewing machine, opened my pattern and burst into tears and had to leave. It's crazy-making.

I hope you have a much better night's sleep tonight.

Thanks HEAPS for the picmonkey heads up. I was a picnic user too and wasn't sure where to turn next.

My kids are adults now but when they were teething I found the best thing was to put a crushed ice cube into a baby sock and knot it, They held onto the knot and chewed happily away on the crushed ice. Thanks again!
