Having scanned millions of pictures, ScanMyPhotos.com provides dozens of other photo imaging specialty services, including custom photo restoration and photo enhancements. However, for ordinary photo fixing, we recommend Picnik.com – the online services lets users crop borders, eliminate red-eye and add a range of special effects like blurring, tinting and heat-mapping to any picture.
Photo Editing Made Fun
Picnik makes your photos fabulous with easy to use yet powerful editing tools. Tweak to your heart’s content, then get creative with oodles of effects, fonts, shapes, and frames. It’s fast, easy, and fun.
Picnik now faster, with new effects thanks to pixel bender technology, Picnik Inc., Seattle, Wash., announces the adoption of the latest Flash Player 10 and its Pixel Bender technology. With the addition of this technology, Picnik will run faster and has more effects. Also, with this update, Picnik has added the ability for third parties to create new effects for use in Picnik.

Using Pixel Bender, software developers will have the ability to create new effects like Circle Splash and Ripple Blocks. Developers are able to manipulate images down to the individual pixel, at high speed, allowing for more editing and effects. Picnik supports the loading of these effects for use in editing photos directly on Picnik.com. Users can find the new features in the

Sandbox.


Future plans with Flash Player 10 include the addition of super high-resolution photo capabilities, more editing features and the ability to load and save photos without involving an upload to a server.
