Wordless Wednesday – Playing Around With Picnik with LINKY

I was playing around in Picasa and saw this link to Picnik. It was kind of fun making over these old pictures. They were only taken within the past five or six year but I used the 1960’s technique on them. I love how they came out!

  29. Wow! They really look like old photos…love them!

  30. Picnik is the best! I love the effects you did. I have to admit that making my photos look older, and “vintage” is my favorite thing to do with picnik. That close up of your little boy is my fav, just breathtaking.

  31. You don’t have to pay extra for that feature, do you?

    Those are some beautiful shots. Your kids have very expressive eyes.

    Happy WW!

    I use Picasa too, but I haven’t gotten the hand of Picnik, my cousin uses it and creates really great photos…I guess I should spend some more time playing around with it, your photos did come out great.

  54. That first one really does look like the old pics from the 60’s! I havent played with Picnik yet. I adore the last pic- too precious!!!
