about Picnik Jun 2011

This is the very best photo editor I have come across. The free edition is great and the premium edition is amazing. Ive been using the free picnik for a couple years and I finally broke down and bought the premium and I am so glad I did. I would recommend this program to anyone who is intimidated by photoshop, its really easy to get an amazing result.
