I'm starting to get used to PicMonkey now. It has the same laid back, user friendly vibe that Picnik had before evil giant Google came and gobbled it up. It has most of the same effects that Picnik had too but they are just named slightly differently.
One difference I've noticed is that the '60's' effect in Picnik is now called 'yestercolour' in PicMonkey. '60's was my effect of choice, but I don't know about you but 'yestercolour' is not doing anything for me at all. Instead of a warm, age worn glow it just makes everything look dark and rusty.
I therefore present my new favoured effect, Urbane. I think I have an affinity with it because, ya know, it sums up my personality and how people view me socially!
I love the way it illuminates the central focus of the snap and makes it hyper colourful but with a vintage edge.
Just curl your corners and you're good to go!
This is what I wore today. It's a happy coincidence that it totally matches my background.

PS. As you can probably tell I've been tinkering with the ol' blog layout. Just a few wee changes, including the header. Whaddya think? Likey? No likey?
