Having A Picnik

So yesterday I shared with you some photo's and a little on what I use to edit them.
Remember, this is for the lazy moms.
That's you?

Good.

Pretty nifty eh?
I have to say, I am often (always) guilty of over-editing photo's cause it's just so fun!
There are a few actions I go to routinely, but for the most part I just play around and see what works.
Some of my favorite things are these:
Under Basic Edits
Exposure
Crop
Colors
Under Effects
Gritty
HDR-ish
Boost
Vibrance
Cross Process
Dots and Dots
Texture
Under Touch-Up
(it's hard to admit but these are all fun to use;-)
Blemish Fix (great for bruises and scrapes)
Eye Bright
Air Brush
Blush
Sometimes when you really highlight a pic than it takes all the color out, so blush works great for adding some pinch to the cheeks!

Of course it helps if you have a great photo to start with, but I am sad to say that I rarely do.
I do happen to have some lovely little models that make it super fun to take, edit and view pictures though!

I would love to know if this helps anyone!

Thanks for the tips, I signed up for Picnick not long ago, but haven't had time to play with it yet. I'll have to give it a try!

I don't think any editing of photos is needed. Your family is already really beautiful.
