PicMonkey: The Spiritual Successor To Picnik

As you probably already know, Picnik’s days are numbered. The popular photo editing website, which was purchased by Google, is going under on April 19th, 2012. Some of the features found in Picnik have made their way to the Google+ Creative Kit, but that hasn’t gone over well with everyone. To the critics, I bring good news – members of the Picnik team have reformed to create a new site – and it’s looking awesome.

Artweaver: Weaving Art for Free on the PC [Windows]

Give me a blank canvas and some pencils, charcoal, or paint, and I’ll rustle something up without a problem. It won’t be worthy of hanging in a gallery but my mum would hang it in her living room.
