Photo editing in Creative Kit

Google has eliminated Picnik from its web services substituting it with Creative Kit which has been used it Google+ for some time now. It is not radically different from Picnik and offers some really useful tools that have been absent previously, particularly a resize tool.  

In order to edit a photo in Picasa click on "actions"/"edit in Creative Kit" in the menu above the photo. 

Creative Kit is devided into four menu options:
  • Basic edits (crop, color correction, rotate, etc.)
  • Effects (mostly artistic/aesthetic)
  • Decorations (brush, icons, clipart, liquefy filter, etc.)
  • Text (including a wide variety of fonts.

Creative Kit can be used for a variety of activities in the classroom ranging from teaching photo editing basics to creative and language activities.  Here are some ideas:
  • Sending a postcard to a friend
  • Labeling the objects in a picture
  • Creating a comic/picture story
  • Creating an advertisement
