Flickr has partnered with the online image editing website Picknik to provide users with the ability to edit their photos directly inside their Flickr account. It’s very easy to use, you simply log into Flickr, click on one of your pictures and then click on the new Edit Photo button, then once you have confirmed that you are happy to have Picnik open in your Flickr account, the Picnik photo editor will appear and you can now crop, resize, sharpen etc. your image. You can also have some fun playing around with the preset effects.
Whilst this won’t replace Photoshop it does provide a very convenient way of editing photos for users who don’t really want, or need, to get to grips with mainstream graphics or image processing applications, and you don’t need to be a professional photo editor to get to grips with it.
