If you use Flickr, you’ve probably also used Picnik to edit your photos. Picnik is closing in a couple of weeks, so Flickr has replaced it with another service called Aviary. Which I have tested and do not like one little bit. But hallelujah! The Picnik gang has a new home at PicMonkey. Most of the old Picnik actions are available there (Ortonizer lives!), some of the actions I wasn’t too impressed with have been tweaked and improved, and there are some pretty fabulous new recipes (Daguerreotype, ahoy!).
It’s not as handy, because it’s not tied directly to Flickr, but I love it so much that I do not care. Right now, everything seems to be free, but I’m guessing the service will become tiered as they gain momentum. That seems reasonable, and when that happens, I’ll be buying a subscription. I like it that much.
