Sneak Peek

I have been taking advantage of Picnik as much as I have before they close their internet doors in April. It's so sad, really. I have loved being able to use this program for photo editing. And I haven't even really played with all of the features. Like this pic above. This is a sneak peek of my Pinwheel piece for tomorrow's Jade Scott Pinwheel challenge. (Come back to the blog tomorrow to see the real deal. ) The HSL Filter in the Effects, changes up the colors and then the Hypnotic effect gives the pic this trippy kaleidoscope effect.

Then the pic below I played around again with the HSL Filter, giving one necklace 4 different colorful looks. FUN!

Giveaway Alert!
I am participating in the Valentine's Earring Giveaway at Everyday-Earrings! Check it out!


  1. I am heartbroken over Picnik going away...have you found a replacement, or do you think it will be coming back even better after Google gets done with it? I have photoshop, but its so much easier to use Picnik...and fun, looking at what you accomplished here!

  2. I'm bummed about Picnik too! :-( I didn't know you could do such cool color changes. And....I hopped right on over to Earrings Everyday to sign up for the giveaway!!

  3. I never got a chance to use picnik but I was planning to just before I heard the bad news. I do hope they come back because it sounds amazing!

    I'm looking forward to seeing the results of the pinwheel challenge. And I have just entered the earring giveaway.

    Have a wonderful day!

  4. Does anyone know of another free photo program online? I am bummed too about Picnik.

  5. Picnik was so easy to use, I love it and will be very sad when it closes down. Hope you're having a great Valentine's Day!

  6. Yep, I hate that Picnik is going away. And they were kinda vague as to why, at least I thought so.

  7. Such a cool effect! I will miss Picnik too, but I never really used it all that much. I was surprised that they refunded every penny I paid for the subscription. That was very cool of them to do. I read somewhere that there is something called Google+Creative Kit. I haven't used it though. But I have seen Pixlr.com and that looks like fun! I will have to try it out. Looking forward to your reveal. Those pinwheels are so sweet.
    Enjoy the day.


I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
