Picnik Image EditorPicnik is the best online image editing program available, and its free! 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.

We’ve created an integration that allows you to edit your images using Picnik without ever leaving Joomla! Our Picnik Image Editor Integration for Joomla is simple, but has all the features you need. You can browse your website for images to edit, upload new ones, and get detailed information and previews before editing.

The text editor for your content will have a new button at the bottom that opens up the image browser. Once there you are able to edit, and then insert the image into your content.

You can also access the editing page by using the administrator module which puts a link to the window in the upper right, or by going to the Picnik link in the administrator.
