After photo editing, I usually apply one of their effects. I'm a real fan of vignette and matte. I knew how to create these effects in Photoshop; but in Picnik, it's just a click of a button!
I'm also thrilled to have found a digital scrapbooking program. I'm playing with it right now and will write more about it in a future post. So, life goes on....with or without Photoshop....seems there is more than one way of doing things.
Find a way to do what you want to do!
