Have you ever been on vacation, took lots of photos about everybody and everything, and discovered you need your sweet laptop with Photoshop beside you right now to process some of your photos you want to add to your travel blog?
I don't like to take my laptop with me when I'm traveling. Worrying about my photo equipment is already enough for me, so I leave everything else safely home. Plus dropping additional weight is usually very practical too, if you want to travel by bike or foot tens of kilometers or climb over some mountain.
But then after an exciting day, you're sitting in local Internet cafe, writing a blog and after downloading some great shots from your camera, you are thinking: "Why, oh why, I didn't brought my laptop with me, I could at least crop those ugly edges out, straighten tilted horizon and adjust light balance a little..."
But situation is not desperate at all. A little while ago I surfed on the Internet and found myself on the website www.picnik.com.
It's an online photo editing site. There are lots of tools, beginning with cropping, rotating and endings with adding text and using all kind of effects. All you need is to upload your file, edit it and then save back on your hard drive. It's absolutely great, huge help in images editing, when you don't have your own tools ready at hand.
