Playing with Pixlr

My daughter uses www.pixlr.com to great effect on her photographs. The vintage effects page has a little coloured dial on the bottom that lets you add effects and borders to your photographs.


I love some of the effects you get. Have a play and see what you can make.

Oh I just had a look at that site - looks like I've found something to use once Picnik closes - thank you very much :) xx

I never tweak my photos, you can probably tell. There's so much you can do now we're in the digital age.

I was wondering what site to use when Piknik closes - so may just give this a try. Thanks

Ooh, I'll take a look at that - could be an easier way of doing what I struggle to do in Photoshop.

I must confess that I don't play with my photos apart from occasionally rotating them a bit or cropping them. I really like the effect you've got with the black and white though.

Thanks for the link, I've just had a play with one of my photos and found some interesting things to do with it. This will be good for your photos when you make your lovely cards and tags:)

Hope that you're managing to stay warm - snow, freezing rain, seems like it's all happening where you are. x
