Embrace the Camera

This week's Embrace the Camera is brought to you courtesy of Picnik*.  I seriously love this site so much.  I hate the phrase "pink puffy heart" but I might be compelled to use it here...

I like the idea of taking perfect photos straight out of the camera, however, I'm not that good yet.  So Picnik allows me to take a pretty good picture and turn it into a fab picture.

Better, right? Nothing crazy - most of the time I just like to enhance the picture and make the people in it look a little better.

I sprung for the annual membership after reading this post.  I had been contemplating taking the plunge for awhile, because, really?  How expensive is $2/month?  Not really.  There are lots of fun things I can do now like add blush to cheeks and mascara to eyelashes, whiten teeth and brighten eyes.  I totally suggest paying for the extras!

On a not-related-to-ETC-but-related-to-Picnik note, I also used Picnik to create this little beauty:
