No Picnik

I'm sharing the Joy
HeArt & Quote

What I love to do is morph my pics with Picnik, it is a very easy to use photo editor.
My joy was toppled recently when Google announced they would be withdrawing Picnik, I have looked at several others but none seem to match for simplicity............

BOO HOO GOOGLE

They say they have other things to pursue,
would that be things like complicating the
  word verification even more?
Please excuse my little rant on this yet otherwise Joyful start to the day!!


Sending to
Share the Joy Thursday

yes, it takes many people over many hours to come up with the WV craziness.
lol

sorry you lost your fave editor.

i like pixlr - http://pixlr.com/
has a basic editor and then a fun area.

I love digital tomfoolery too. And hate word verification. I wonder how much spam would land in comments if I took out the verification feature.

You feel like many people do ! Strange thing when a "server" forgets who it is serving so often.
But yes, let's keep to the joys !
Like sweet hearts connecting !
Happy Thursday !

I was saddened to hear about picnik closing it's site, too. I use it all the time! I found, are you ready, Be Funky at befunky.com and it is not as easy (cause what can compete with Picnik) BUT it does have a lot of cool features including tons of texture and framing options. Check it out.
Peace~

I love Picnik too and have just gotten used to how to use it good. I just saw a DVD where Word Verification is being used to transcribe old books to e-books. Who knew. We are working for them for free.

Oh, I do understand your rant. I've never used Picnik, but I know many people who do and are pretty upset now. I love my Photoshop Elements though... And I don't like word verification AT ALL.

Hi Meri,

I have great news for you. Though your old favorite Picnik is closing, some ex-Picnik employees are building a new (and in our opinion, better) photo editing tool. PicMonkey! I've been fortunate enough to play around with PicMonkey in its beginning stages and if you liked Picnik, you're going to love PicMonkey! It's familiar, sleek, and very user friendly.

If you're as excited as we are, sign up on our site www.PicMonkey.com and we’ll keep you updated on a launch date (soon, soon!). Also, feel free to send me your feedback, feature requests, and, of course, any questions you have!

Happy blogging!
Jenn

Happy Haiku New Year

Bare winter branches bathed in mystical moonshine stirring some magic!

Hello and a Happy New Year to you and yours...

I feel like a stranger to this online space it being nearly two months since I last tapped the keys here. I've been living a kind of nomadic existence recently flitting between houses with the addition of my new little tin home that perches on a Welsh hillside overlooking the ocean. What with Christmas and New Year I have been sleeping in random beds! The acquisition of my tin home is something I have dreamed about for ages and now it has come to pass so I've been bathing in ocean magic....

Something else that has kept me creatively occupied lately is my regular postings on Instagram, I have taken to posting haiku and images there as a meditative practice which satisfies both my need to create and also to focus, I have set the intention to continue this practice for 2017 and also to research the subject, perhaps write about my findings here as I believe this art-…

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
