pink-saturday-picnic-bicycleif you Picnik, you Photoshop. Did you know that many of the things on Picnik are Photoshop?  Here's a link to a group on flickr who shares how they enhance their photos.  Picnik has the coolest blog.

These look great Karen. I use Picnik and might have to look at Photoshop.

Good morning dearest! OK, I desperately need to do something about my photography. I changed cameras last weekend and found that our older camera picks up light a lot better. But what I want to know is how some of these people get such BRIGHT CLEAN COLORS....I am suspecting that it is Photoshop. I do PICNIK, but there is nothing available, at least for free that will brighten up the picture. Do you have any suggestions? YOUR PHOTOS ARE WONDERFUL AS ALWAYS!! Anita

Love those little spring cleaning helpers of yours! Hope that they do good work...

Again, lovely, lovelies. I sometimes wonder how you find inspiration day after day. Now I think that because you have a God-given gift, inspiration floats to you on many breezes. My favorite today? The red barn! Oh I'd love to explore it.

Off to follow a link or two. Not that I will ever even attempt to try what you do so very well. :D

Gorgeous! You are amazing with Photoshop! I can only do a tiny bit with it. I would love to learn more. But you my dear, are talented!

You do such a wonderful job with Photoshop, Karen! I don't own the Photoshop program but I edit my photos in Picasa and sometimes Picnik. There are always new things to learn to keep us sharp which is a very good thing!

Oh Karen, I am so glad you like the Shutter Sisters blog! I bought the Expressive Photography book and love it too.

I bought it in November but I am still working my way through it.
And you led me to Kim Klassen, I am thinking of buying her photo recipe book.
