Free alternative to Picnik (a better program)

Hey guys! 

I'll be back in a couple of hours with a real post, but I had something that I thought I'd share with you. 

I know many of you are upset about Picnik closing, and as much as I hate that dumb program, it makes me sad to see fellow bloggers sad! So... I just wanted to let you guys know about PicMonkey. It's a free, no registration required, online photo-editing program that is actually made by the makers of picnik. 

It's got a lot of the same features, and it's a lot more user friendly I think! 

Be aware though, that you are not allowed to pull any of my photo-editing don'ts just because this program exists. :)

So... try it out, let me know what you think.

Please don't hate me if my photo editing sucks! I'm new to it. I generally don't do much except crop the picture. But I found PicMonkey...and have been having fun with it. We'll see. If it's really bad, let me know!! :)

This is great, do you know if you can make collages? I didn't see it, but totally could have missed it.

Thanks for the heads up!! This will give me more time to save up for photoshop. Yes, I've used that "dumb program" to edit all of my photos for almost a year now. It was really useful to someone who couldn't afford photoshop. I know it has some major cheesiness, but it's not so bad ;)

wow, alyx, a huge THANK YOU!! i've kind of been sweating the fact that picknik is closing, but have been too lazy to find a comparable replacement. and until i become a photoshop wiz like you, i'm happy to have this program. i wonder, too, if there's a collage feature...i'll have to look into that.
but really, thank you so much. it's super cool of you to look for a picknik replacement even though you don't use it yourself. what a thoughtful sweetie pie you are :)

THANK YOU!! This program is awesome! Besides picnik, I also use which is completely free and a little like photoshop. But for a few things, picnik is just easier and I was so sad that it was closing.

YAY!!! I'm SO glad that you found this and shared it with us! I LOVED picnik and was seriously stressing about what I was going to use when it disappeared. THANK-YOU!!! =)

I just want to thank you for mentioning this!!!!! I'm gonna miss picnik so, so much. It's really nice to have another option now! I'm going to pass this on to my friends :)
Thanks again!!
