Fun (and free!) Online Photo Software

One of the fun things about digital photography, is playing with the pictures! If you haven't tried it yet, you should check out Picnik. You can do all sorts of fun things with your photos. Best of all- it's easy! Here are a few examples:

Original


Orton-ish

Black and White Focal

1960's

These transformations took about 5 minutes, in total, since I just used the stock effects. I haven't tried printing them yet, but I'm interested to see how they turn out.

For those interested, I still haven't figured out how to photograph fireflies... they are so ethereal anyway. Maybe they aren't meant to be caught on film.

Oooh thanks for the link! Do you have any recommendations on a "how to" photography blog? I've found Ken Rockwell, but so many others aren't all that applicable or helpful for me.

Nicola, I like SOC too- but you can also crop, etc. on here.

G- No idea and me too.

Liv- Ken Rockwell is my favorite. I use my manual a lot and just try things out.
