Flickr, an online leader in image storage along with Google’s Picassa, is striving for your business. Flickr’s latest feature release adds online real-time Photo Editing, color correcting and effect tools – all for free!
The image you see here was a photo of downtown Miami that I decided to add a few embellishments for the holiday season using the ‘picnik’ tools.
There are actually quite a few new features.
First, FLICKR users will be prompted to try the new tools.
Then users will be able to see the initial editing screen, providing tools to perform a variety of standard functions including cropping, resizing, rotating, auto-fix, exposure correction, color correction, sharpening and red-eye fixer.
Users choosing the “create” tab will see a wealth of fanciful artistic features.
Note how some features are noted with “PREMIUM” on the right side of the tab – these features can be accessed for a fee of $24.95 a year.
The creative tools include “stamping” other images about your photo – it’s pretty cool and how I redecorated downtown Miami for Christmas!
To check out these new tools, head over to FLICKR.
