A Rose Is A Rose

Last week, Michael surprised me with this beautiful bouquet of roses.  They were tight little buds and blossomed into these beautiful full blooms!  I took the pictures and then started playing around with the editing features on Picnik.  This is a free photo editing website that is very easy to use and very handy for people like me who just can't figure out photo shop!  These are just a few of the effects you can create.  Really, the possibilities are endless!

That's not all you can do.  You can also add text, make collages, create frames and so much more.
If you need help with making your photos the best they can be for your shop, blog or just for your personal enjoyment, give Picnik a try.  You can't beat FREE!! And of course for a small price, you can upgrade to their premium service and get even more features! 

There's a new inspiration challenge at My Life Under the Bus!  Go take a look and jump on board for the ride!
I hope you have a marvelous Monday!!!


  1. I love Picnik and use it for all my photos. I have PhotoShop, but I fund it very confusing and way too intricate for my little brain ;-)

    Lovely roses!

  2. What beautiful flowers! I heart Picnik too :)

  3. I'm in envy of your pretty roses! I love photo editing but have never tried Picnik. You've officially convinced me that I need to check it out :)

  4. What fun !!! What effects are #6 & #7 sooo cool and the letter overlay. I Love picnik I wish I had more time to play!!!

  5. Looks like you had fun playing with Picnik! Can't wait to see what you make for the challenge this week. :)

  6. Patty, #6 is 'gritty', one of the premium features and #7 is 'hdr-ish'. I upgraded to premium so I could have more than 5 photos uploaded at a time!

  7. That's amazing that you could do all that with a FREE program. I struggle (with a captial S!) with Photoshop and understand exactly what you mean. It does amazing things but it is NOT intuitive at all.

  8. Annette, what lovely Roses.

    I also, love what you did with them. I haven't tried Picnik I might have to stop by there.

    Off to check out the challenge :)

    Have a lovely day T. :)

  9. Wow! So cool -- the surprise (whatta guy!) AND all you did with them. I need to check out Picnik!

  10. I love yellow roses!! Those are really beautiful - lucky you :)
    Looks like you had a lot of fun with them.
