On the road I only have access to my laptop and online editors. Up to now I’ve been using the free Picnik.com photo editing service. I just upgraded tonight to their premium service.

I still hate editing photos on this laptop, I feel like I’m blind and cannot see the fine details. But what can ya do… Here’s a photo I edited with one of the Premium features – “Before and After”. Wish Photoshop did this, it’s so much fun!

In this photo I didn’t like how tossled her hair was in the wind, and how it was reflecting light, making it look gray. I experimented with a few of Picnik’s editing tools to make it look darker and softer. Also cropped it a bit more closely, got rid of the distracting white corner in the upper left. Sparkled up the eyes (and now you can see me the photographer in them!) Got rid of a few flyaway hairs in her eye. Even gave her some blush on her cheeks! Just a few things you can do with Picnik!

Still wish I was on my home computer with Photoshop though… I do not trust what I see here…
