Playing with Photo Editing

I tend to us photos that are straight out of the camera with very little or no photo editing. As of late, I've been doing a little experimenting with Picnik. A really cool feature is focal soften where you can focus on a specific object in the shot and blur everything around it. This is a random shot that I took. I really like the focus on the lantern light with the rest of the building blurred.

Picnik is so much fun. I was always a SOC girl too.... but now I do some editing too. Have a great weekend!

Good job, I haven't heard of picnik, but I haven't done anything on photo editing. I will have to try it.

I came in here and saw that quote about biting off more than you could chew..I started laughing and my Myna birds started mimicing me! Did you do that sketch? I think lights/street lights etc..are cool. Anyway- have a good weekend-

I LOVE LOVE LOVE picnik! It's pretty much all I use when I edit my pics.

Oooh! That is so cool! Nice picture. Most of my pics are SOC, too. When I need to brighten or up the contrast a bit, I just use the Windows software in my computer. But this Picnik sounds cool. Is it free?
I've wanted to try out Photoshop for a long time, but the price always stops me.
