Picnik Replaced by PicMonkey
April 26, 2012 at 4:23 PM
Our online image editing software was bought up by Google +, so was taken offline. Luckily, we've found an amazing replacement and have integrated it into Shift.
The new software is called PicMoney - it's been developed by the same engineers that coded Picnik, so it works in pretty much exactly the same way.
The great thing is that it's even easier to use, and it works with Shift seamlessly. You can crop, resize, add text, effects, and most importantly frames into your photos. Give them a drop shadow, for example. This means that the images that you insert into your website won't look 'placed' - they'll look like they belong on your website.
PicMonkey's great, and it's exciting that our clients can have access to some of the best web based graphics software on earth - all for free!
It means that you don't need to be a photoshop expert to create amazing looking images.
It's so easy to use - once you've uploaded your photo/image, simply go to your file manager, and click 'edit'. PicMonkey will then open up in a new window. When you're done making your changes, just click 'save', and your newly edited image will appear on your website. Nice!
