How to Write On Your Pictures/ Add Text/ Edit Your Pictures for Your Blog

UPDATE: The best site as of 2014 for photo editing is Picmonkey.com.  The site "Picnik" has closed down/ merged with google, I believe. Picmonkey is an easy to navigate website. You will NOT need to download any software.  All photo editing can be done on the web. Love it!

on with the old stuff:

When I first started blogging I used Lunapic to edit my photos and thought it was pretty great. But now I have found Picnik and have just loved the results. The three most important things for me when choosing a picture editing site are:
  1. I find a site that is FREE
  2. that I don't have to DOWNLOAD any thing for
  3. I don't have to register for (why does every site I visit need my email address anyway?!?)
Here are some of the pictures I've created for my personal blog posts:
Making a collage or adding text to your pictures can add interest and variety to your blog. It can also help detract from your horrible photographic abilities, as in my case.

Ok, but the most important item you can make on a photo editing site is your header! Have you ever wondered how people made their headers? All you need to do is:
  1. find a picture you like and save it to your computer.
  2. Open the picture in Picnik and edit it (resize if needed, add your blog title, etc...)
  3. save the new edited picture to your computer.
  4. To add this picture to your Blogger blog as a header go to "Layout" , "edit" in the Header Box, and "add image". Easy Peasy!
Happy Blogging!
