Pinks, Picasa, and Picnik


The peonies are from the market. Ours are not quite open yet. The fragrance was intoxicating on the porch of the cabin.



I am really enjoying the ability to edit photos in Picasa using Picnik. I like playing with the photos. I find that I like to have a frame around the picture. I miss the frames from Photoscape but Macs and Photoscape are not speaking. I also miss the ability to turn my photos into artwork. However, I am researching filters that might be able to do this. In the meantime, I am going back and forth between the 2 programs and blogger.

I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for another Pink Saturday. Each week bloggers celebrate the color Pink with wonderful photographs and stories. If you get a chance, stop by.

Simply beautiful pictures. I have recently learnt how to watermark my pictures at Picnik but via Flickr.com
I do not edit my photos but think I have seen there that you can create art style pictures, maybe worth investigating.

Love how you do what you do and you just know that I want to copy you! Hope that the couple of good days have been very good indeed. It's not looking good for the weekend...wah!

Your photos are so lovely. You are doing great with "tweaking" them with your photo programs. Hope you both have wonderful birthdays and a good weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday, Carol.

Your photos look great. I love playing with my photos, too. I use Photoshop, and I am just beginning to try different actions.

Love the soft pretty look of your pictures...I have PhotoShop and I need to take a couple of days and just play around! I haven't learned to put frames around my pictures and I think that will be my first project!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Carol, Stunning photos!! I have used Picnik, but do not use Picasa anymore, it took over my pictures. Use Photoshop instead. Have a wonderful weekend.

Beautiful flowers and mosaic, Carol! I made blueberry shake yesterday but I did not make a pie yet. I have downnloaded a recipe from the web though. I had Tina take all the blueberries home (they left last night) but I am going back to pick more with a friend this week and then will bake a pie. I was just busy playing with the grandkids when they were here....Christine

Carol, I love what you are doing with Picnik on your photos. They look so nice. I must get at playing with that more once the kitchen is finished. :-) Beautiful pictures!

Porch Days said...

Carol, you are doing great things with your pictures! I use Photoshop Elements. It has frames as well as many filters. Last I checked it was about $89 and works well on my MacBook Pro.

Rettabug said...

You sure are having fun with your camera & other new toys, huh Carol?

Come see my peonies...they are a much darker color than yours. They're from my childhood home by way of my sister's help. Don't you just LOVE their smell???

Hugs,
Rett
