I'm sure i'm the last person on this bandwagon (as usual) but I just discovered Picnik.
I have a measly 5.1 megapixel Sony Cybershot camera. It's 6 years old. I would LOVE a nice, new, fancy-schmancy DSLR camera...BUT...the one I love is, like, 3GRAND. So. Yeah.
Here's the thing...I'm uber-impressed with some of the pictures
I can get off my camera. I hate the flash...I nev
er use the flash...so I certainly have to have heaps of patience waiting for my subject to be perfectly still, but I can get a decent picture on my 'ole 5.1. Take that 13 MP!!
Picnik.com is even more reason for me to avoid buying a new camera. Dude...Picnik is, like, FREE PHOTOSHOP. (I lapse into surfer-speak when i'm excited).
Upload your pictures for free...edit them in fancy ways for free...can't beat that. AND if you want the super-fancy features, it's $24.06 for a years subscription. I could edit the crap outta my photo library in a year.
CASE IN POINT:
AFTER: (1960s and boost effect applied)
I'm totally digging the 1960s effect.
So...go check out picnik.com and prepare to spend hours upon hours justifying to yourself that buying a new camera is ludicrous.
What? That's just me? Really?
