Picnik is a great photo editing tool

Or it is until April 19

After that owners Google are shutting it down. Until then you get to use the paid-for premium version of the site for free.
We cover using Picnik on pages 430-434 of the paper edition of MMJ, and here on the companion website.
The tuition in this masterclass replaces that section of the course.
Google has an alternative to Picnik, within the suite of apps that now makes up Google+. It’s called Creative Kit and it is based closely on Picnik.

We cover how to use Creative Kit here.

If you’d rather find an alternative, you’ll find some suggestions for other good photo-editing applications as well.

Five free alternatives to Creative Kit

We'll take a look at:

  • Photoshop Express
  • Pixlr Express
  • Fotoflexer
  • Free Online Photo Editor, and
  • Pixenate

If you have a favourite photo editing app, let us know via any of the contact buttons on this site.
