Anyway, I sometimes do very light editing of photos in Photoshop. I'm a novice, but know how to do a couple of really basic things. Often, I'd also use Flickr's photo editing tool, Picnik, because it was really really easy to use directly from Flickr and most of the features were free. But then I found out that Google had acquired Picnik and was shutting it down and moving some of the tools to Google+. I don't get Google+. I've tried. I really have, but I just don't see the point. And I don't want to upload photos to both Flickr and Google+.
But then last weekend, I noticed that Flickr had a new photoediting option, Aviary. I gave it a try, and you've seen the results this week on the blog. It's pretty easy to use, though not as robust as Picnik. I tried it out:
With Aviary Editing Effects and Boost to the Saturation

With Aviary Editing Effects
|One of my favorites. Ever.|
|I think it saved this one.|
