Picnik Substitute - you asked for it.

I've received a lot of emails over the past month asking about an alternative to Picnik.  (I think that's because you all know I'm addicted to it as well.)  We all know that Google is trying to push everyone to use Google+ where there's the "Creative Kit" that looks like a cheap, shortened version of Picnik.  I don't know if it'll end up being the full version when Picnik officially closes, but either way - I want a substitute rather than being toyed with.  Finding a new option is my way of sticking it to the man :)

So, I did some hunting for some good photo editing software and I'm happy to report that I now have a great substitute.  It's called Foto Flexer and I really like it.  Here's a screen shot of what it looks like.

I thought it might be easiest to take you on a little video tour, to show you where everything is.  There are even a few things Foto Flexer has that picnik doesn't.  While there are less fonts and stickers, I don't think you'll be disappointed overall.  Take a look.

So here's the bullet point comparison, in my view.
I'm excited to use it more and get totally comfortable with it.  There are also some cool features that I'm anxious to try out and learn.

So, goodbye Picnik.  We had some good times, but I've found someone else.....and it's getting serious.  So I'm dumping you before you can dump me.

Thanks for reading.
