Blogs and Social Networks Photo Persuasion 3 or Tweak My Photo

Stevie has a great list of 5 photo fixer sites that we have been playing around with lately. She has designed some incredible brilliance with her selected "tweakable" photos :)

Here is an example of some of the creations Stevie made:

Most Photo Adjustment sites offer color tweaks, brightness, redeye fix, contrast, adding text or stickers but not all have animations. For animations visit MyTheme.

Stevie's 5 list:

Let's see what some of the "draws" to these sites are :)
way fast to register, start to upload your pics straight away. The adjustment editing area is right there :) Here you can also transfer your photos from Live Journal, Image Shack, Buzznet, Drop Shots, Facebook, Flickr, Fotolog, SmugMug, Picasa, PhotoBucket,, and WebShots. PhixR is another "no fluff" site becasue you are creating the fluff with your pics. PhixR is an photo adjustment site with photo effects like Oil Painting, Dot Art, Funnel, Charcoal Drawing, Black and White, and Spray. With these type effects, I just recommend playing around and having fun with a couple of photos to figure out what effects you like best. Blending or Mixing a photo with another is the huge draw to PhixR I think :) This is very cool, layered effects of one photo or another where you adjust the transparency of both. This feature isn't offered everywhere and some that do offer it are much more difficult to use than this one :) Also the fixer "Noise reduction" is brilliant here at PhixR, a tool used to get rid of the fuzzy stuff in a photo. Turn your photos into creations at FlauntR then apply them to mugs, hats, t-shirts, mouse pads, calendars, and more. Free to register, find out more about FlauntR on the show :)

MyTheme Online Photo Editor @ Awesome photo editor and MySpace layouts and graphics arena :)
Name, email, password, birthday, and area code to register here with a confirmation email. Free to sign up Photo Sharing site geared toward Travelers, Historians, Local info, and Site Seer info. If you are looking for a great coffe shop in Paris, or a Winery tour in California, my thought would be to check here. Also, if you know of any great destinations and you have Photos to go with them, sign up and let others know here at SoSauce. Free to use but even better when you register for free. Also an upgrade option. Way quick to sign up, no confirmation email. is really a photo holding, friending, photo sharing site. But Flickr is one of the free holding sites for your "Tweaked" creations. And only about $25 a year for an upgraded pro account.

Our Blogs and Social Networks Photo Persuasion show has some great info for people needing to "adjust, tweak, fluff, dress up, sparkle out, resize, and/or change the formats" of your photo images. Add descriptions, keywords, even "tag" to add a live hyperlink to sections of your pictures.

Some of sites we discussed included my top 3 :)

Photobucket: One of the very best "all inclusive" photo sites. Only $3.95 a month or less than $40 a year to upgrade here at PhotoBucket but free to use and no pressures to upgrade ever :) Get prints, share albums, tweak and resize photos. Photobucket also has a great selection of Slide shows to put it all together :)

Slide: Is the bomb! :) Rocks for sure, more info on show, but will put the purse, belt, and shoes on your photo outfitters for a great slide show :)

Flickr: One of the biggest Photo sharing, holding, and friending sites on the Internet.

PiccyFix: Top Photo site for format changes with much more.

Picnik: Tab Folders and Grass Picnik Welcomes You to Sign up for Free. With all the basics, why choose Picnik over the others? Try the "Create Tab" and see for yourself why Picnik is rockin'. Upload 5 photos at atime unless you want to go premium, then up to 100 at a time here about $25 a year for the upgrade to premium option with many perks.

SoSauce: Travel Geeks Global Curiosity Local Expertise

MyThemeAnimator @ A link from MyTheme to the editor pages but MyTheme also has some awesome MySpace Layouts and Graphics.

FlauntR: From FotoDesk Professional Photo Editing Easy and Free

PhixR: The Online Photo Editor Choose to Sign Up for Free (only takes 15 seconds) No email hassles :)

We cover in depth what you can do where on the show :)

But for sure is the place I go for format changes from PNG, JPEG, GIF, BMP. No registration here at PiccyFix, Instant and Free. You can choose to host your pics here or show them off in the gallery and PiccyFix can adjust your photos much more than just format changes :)

Resize, Rotate, Flip, Colorize, Crop, Tint, Adjust Brightness, Contrast, and Add Effects and Borders at PiccyFix :)
