praise for Picmonkey

I have a confession to make: I LOVE Picnik. I use it to edit photos regularly. So you can imagine I was pretty sad when I found out that it's going away on April 19th. Since the announcement, I've been trying to figure out what to use in its stead, and it has been frustrating. I have a bit of a fear of Photoshop, but most of the free online stuff is far inferior in terms of being powerful, yet user-friendly. I was pretty worried... until I found Picmonkey! It was founded by two former Picnik engineers and is beautifully close to being just the same... except with even more features! I highly recommend it!

Check out these before and afters:

Which is your favorite? Should these go in my etsy shop?
