Fun with Picnik

As I mentioned previously, I’m learning about Picnik, a photo-editing site.  You can do neat stuff.

Here’s my original photo:

Below, I increased the warmth.  You can see that the leaves on the trees in the background look a little yellower, and it looks like the sun is brighter.

On the next one, I reduced the exposure.  The colors look deeper and richer.

I also tried reducing the saturation, which washed out the colors.  I think this made the photo look older, like it was taken a long time ago and has faded.

The next one shows aliens in my yard.  How fun is that?

    Picnik is a great site! It is what I’ve used to create banners for the blog in the past. Not the current one, but all those in the past. Also used it to do some photos with fun arrows pointing to obscure items I wanted to highlight (or make fun of). But I have never had aliens invade my photos; must have happened to you because they saw signs of more intelligent life.
