Picnik. Just tried this online image adjuster, useful for those times one doesn’t need an elephant gun to swat a mosquito. Someone had asked me to recommend a small app for sharpening images and I gave Picnic a try–in this case, for color correction to the image above (from 2006 when we actually had snow in winter.) Picnik saved it back to the folder of my choice on my hard drive almost instantly.
And PicLens. Awesome! Mine lives as a FireFox extension and its most impressive use for me so far is to view my Flickr Galleries. To see it in action, load PicLens, use it for starters at my Flickr link and browse my life in full color Fragments!
It works in Google Images and other places as well–great for browsing through large volumes of images in certain locations for just the right match you’re looking for. Very Mac-esque. You really need to take a look, you visually oriented sorts.
Meanwhile back at the ranch…I’ll be taking a pdf on a thumb drive by Kinkos in C’burg later today to get a half dozenfull color copies of some twenty pages of “the book” ready to send off to folks–once I determine who those folks might be other than the definite #1 to whom it will go by Wednesday. Thanks to those who have requested the link to this sample of pages, and especially those who have provided feedback. This is very helpful. And the offer still goes. Just let me know you’d like to take a peek–either in a comment or by email, and be sure I know how to get back to you with the link.
