A lot of the time I spent working on my friend Rowan's blog last week (see previous post) was playing around with her images on the online photo editing website Picnik - if you haven't seen it before take a look and try it out - there are a heaps of free features or you can pay for Premium access. There's a lot you can do with the free ones and it's REALLY user friendly.
And it won't take the time it took me unless you too are afflicted with "perfectionitis" - here are some of the 'draft' versions of the image used on Rowan's Mexican Chowder post (using the Polaroid framing feature)
made before I decided to go totally in the opposite direction with the density of the background colour - this is the published one ...
If you haven't tried it yet pack up a few favourite images and take a Picnik this weekend - it's a lot of fun!!
