Online Photo Editor to Replace Picnik

As a “Do it Yourself” website manager you may be using the photo editor we recommend in our post about preparing your images for the web.

Unfortunately Google, the company that purchased Picnik, has decided to just shut it down. Of course, I could spend hours trying to figure out the logic (why did Google buy it if they were just going to shut it down???) but I just don’t have any spare time for pondering that question right now.

So, I have searched the web and this one is my favorite (as of today):


It’s free, no log in required. Of course, it is still new. I am sure over time you will start seeing ads and / or upgrade offers. But for today it does what’s needed.

Can my posts show up on Twitter and Facebook?

Yes! It’s easy. Just go to http://twitterfeed.com/ and set up an account. You will need to register and then know the email address and password you used for Twitter and your username and password for Facebook. This is a free service.

Your RSS feed will be: http://yourdomain.com/feed/. If you prefer to do a category then go to that category and get the url and add /feed/ to the end. For example we can get a feed for our FAQs by going here: http://betterwebsitebuilders.com/blog/category/faqs/feed/.
