Picnik(ing) is Fun...

I'm probably way behind the game here.....but I recently was introduced to a really fun website. It is especially fun if you like photography and then like to improve on your photos.....you know brush them up or enhance them. Even though I haven't bit the bullet and joined (which is VERY reasonable by the way), I plan to do so. I have just enjoyed the free features for now. After joining you have many more options under the premium feature (membership).

For free, you can choose various frames, touch up effects, print texts, improve the quality and tone of your pictures, and more. One of my favorites here lately has been playing around with the pencil sketch option. I just love trying different photos and seeing how it turns out with the pencil sketch option.

I thought I'd share a few of the photos on which I used the pencil sketch. First I'll show you the original picture, then the pencil sketched picture.

Colt and Joy...




Joy and Christina...




Jason and me...




So if you have a few minutes to spare, check it out, by just clicking here.

Treat yourself to a photography picnik. It really is fun and you'll be ever so impressed with what you can do.....and it's easy too!

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by! :)

That is so cool! When our oldest daughter was approaching 2 yrs of age we paid( a pretty penny) to have a pencil sketch done of her. You can do it for "free" from their web?

I just have to tell you, you have such a warm country feel to your home, and your family; what a handsome bunch!

Blessings, Mel

Tammy, Piknik makes a nice gift too for someone who likes to play with pictures and make 'header pics' for their blogs. I know, because my daughter gave me a subscription for Christmas. I'm still learning how to use it. I've never tried the sketch option. Thanks for showing me that! Have a nice week;

Thanks for sharing this. I have always loved the look of pencil sketched photos but didn't want to pay the high price. I will definitely be checking it out.
Take care,
Laurie

Tammy, thanks for sharing! I really like pencil drawings! I've never had any done though.. I just might have to try this one out, especially if one can for free!

Love & Blessings,

I've played with it. That's how I made my header.
I am also thinking of joining but right now I'm not even taking many photos. Kind of a slow time here.....
Have a great week!

Cool beans! I'll have to check that out. My computer has a program with something similar too, which I play around with a lot. Can't think of the name of it right now.
Hope you are having a great week!
