Despite the fact that the list of online image editing services continues to get longer and longer, there is still one that has been sitting at the top of my list for quite a while – Picnik. We first wrote about Picnik back in April, and since then, it has managed to get better and better. If you’re a fan of Picnik and you’re a Firefox user, you’re going to love an extension that I recently came across which makes importing images into Picnik even easier.
To start, you’ll want to install the Picnik Firefox extension (download found here), and of course restart your browser. Once you’ve done this, right click on any image and notice the option that’s been added which says “Edit Image in Picnik.” There’s also an option to “Send Page to Picnik.” The “Send Page” option is great because you can essentially take a screenshot of any website and send it to Picnik for editing- either the visible page, or the full page. That means all it takes is two clicks before you’re editing a photo or web page from anywhere on the web. This extension is extremely handy and makes editing photos on your browser easy.
Now remember, Picnik offers all kinds of options for photo-editing like the capability to crop, rotate, resize, sharpen, or even remove red-eyes, so I think you’ll find it useful. And because it’s an online service, there’s nothing that has to be downloaded. To boot, it can be used on a Mac, a PC with Windows, or even Linux. Picnik has always been awesome, but this Firefox extension makes it even better!
