iPiccy Is Picnik’s Closest Replacement

In a hurried scramble last week to find a replacement for the Picnik.com closure in April, I had written an article featuring 7 FREE photo and graphic editing sites.  Some readers were hoping to actually find a replacement editor that was similar or at least closer to the look and feel of Picnik’s site.

Well here it is!  iPiccy.com is the closest you’re going to find to Picnik.com
.  The look and feel are more similar than any other site I’ve seen.  iPiccy might actually be Picnik’s twin brother.  Once you explore the site, you’ll see what I mean.  iPiccy is 100% free, no registration required, and offers many of the same features and benefits that Picnik does and more.  They include a painting module that Picnik didn’t provide.

Grabbing any image or photo is easy.  Just click the appropriate button and GO!  The editing options are endless and the ability to create some really cool customized graphics and images will be limited only by your creativity and of course your time and schedule.  The workspace on iPiccy will be easy to navigate, especially for Picnik users, and will feel just like your old Picnik stomping grounds.

There are multiple effects and single click options at your fingertips.  These will make your photos and images really “POP” and if you use a combination of the wide variety of tools and options available, the possibilities will be endless.

In literally minutes, you’ll be able to adjust your contrast, auto-correct colors, customize images, fix blemishes, remove red-eye, lighten and darken graphics, and even add text overlays, reflections, shadows and more.  Having access and the ability to utilize some really cool effects without being a graphics designer makes iPiccy one of my  TOP CHOICE recommendations.

Here’s what we just put together for our Valentine show next week.

We added a border,
created a matting,
went with  a sepia effect,
added a thick pencil sketching,
made it black and white,
re-sized it keeping constraints,
added a shadow border,
then dropped some text at the bottom and saved to the desktop.
This all took about 3 minutes from beginning to end.


Check out iPiccy.com and compare it to Picnik.  If you’ve never used Picnik, then you’ll have discovered a very cool free online photo and image editing site that you’re going to enjoy.  If you have used Picnik and feel as though you’ll be losing a best friend come April, I can promise that iPiccy will make the hurt a whole lot less.  In fact, some of you will like iPiccy even better than Picnik.
