I'm seeing spinning Flash (?) cogwheels of slowness with nothing coming up at the moment. (update: it finally ended with a Whoops! Was Not Able To Retrieve Your PIcture).

latest Firefox, OS X (version = not Leopard)

Hosting this on the picnix infrastructure seeing traffic is presumably huge here may not have been the best plan?

I'll stick with Lightroom for everything, but I just wanted to check it out.

Another nice feature might be to disable the edit button if we disable Pixnix. Why waste screen real estate for buttons that do not do anything? Just gets cluttery that way. I understand why the button is there for those that do not yet know about the feature, but am still a bit careful about what API keys I grant write access to. (Security being compromised at any of them would be very very bad -- this is why it seems like it would be better if Flickr hosted this feature themselves)

Fair point -- Editing a photo shouldn't mangle the URL like changing it's privacy settings does.

That breaks blogging a good bit if you upload a photo and now decide to make it black and white, etc.

brainwidth: "even though I'm a Pro Flickr member, I don't have access to the premium editing tools"

Our Picnik integration is just a handy way of connecting the two sites. If you want access to Picnik's premium features you would have to upgrade to Picnik Preminum (just as if you were using picnik.com as a stand-alone site).

But you'd pay Picnik, not us.

[Edited for clarity, hopefully.]

myfear says:

Wow. Great toy. Here are my first thougts (take it as feedback please):
1) Nice interface but not too smoothly integrated. Looks and feels weired because of the different interface using methods.
2) IE7 and Flash 9 (9,0,47,0) is very slow ... (> 1 Minute to load the interface) Maybe a better loader would help ...
3) I personaly would highly appreciate if you could hide everything I can not use. It is not shure on the first hand, what the premium things are all about (reading helps, for shure .. but I am talking about first impressions). What about an flickr rebate? For me the $25 are far off. There are many low- or no-cost things out there.

rocurti says:

All of the most interesting aspects of Picnick are Premium features. However, it makes no sense to me to pay an annual fee to use a program, when I can buy a much better one (Photoshop Elements for example) for a one-time price and then use it for years. Not to mention the many excellent free programs available on the internet, such as IrfanView.

There have been a great many Forum threads from users who want a means of editing images after they've been uploaded to Flickr - this is the solution.

Yes, you can use a graphics program on your own computer (that's usually pointed out pretty quickly in the aforementioned threads!) - but not everyone has or even wants one...

Hey, love the integration.

I've been using Picnik for quite a while now anyway, so this only makes it easier. I've always wondered though -- why is the image resolution always reduced (for me anyway) to 74% of the original size?
Posted ages ago. ( permalink )

_mpd_ Don't forget you can save a copy instead of replacing if you wish to retain links to the original. Just link to the edited version from the original :)

Chrisser PRO says:

How does somebody link to the edited version of the original that somebody has uploaded from their own computer providing it is one of theirs originally?

And I see when loading Picnik that sometimes you see phrases like Warming breezes, Floating kites, and Applying sunscreens.

Also, for any creation made and not replacing any photo I've uploaded originally, in addition to saving those creations on my computer, can I send them in private e-mails to those not on Flickr?

"Don't forget you can save a copy instead of replacing if you wish to retain links to the original. Just link to the edited version from the original :)"

Basically, I want to do the opposite. Replace an existing photo without having to edit the blog posting. I'm hosting the blog, it just saves me a couple of clicks to fix things in Wordpress (which I frequently forget to do).

Not a big deal though, really.

jpdoyle PRO says:

This is a great development. I was already fond of Picnik - my only criticism is how it often downsizes the edited photo to 83% of the source size when saving it back to Flickr.
Posted ages ago. ( permalink )

Flickr Staff

hitherto says:

oBeattie, Dr Keats, jpdoyle: Regarding the image size reduction, we did actually put a note in the FAQ, just here.

Basically, the largest image size which Picnik can output is 2800x2800.

From what I understand, this is a current limitation of Flash's image handling, so it's not something we can immediately fix, but we're hoping that the limitation will go away in the future.

Chrisser: Photos edited using the integration are just like any of your other images on Flickr, so you can save your image to your machine, create a Guest Pass for others to view it, or use any of the other ways you'd normally use to share it with others.

The "warming breezes" etc. messages are part of Picnik's pre-loading screen which should show up whenever you open the feature, but... currently don't. I'm looking into why that's happening.

If I wanted to advance edit a photo I wouldn't be doing it online, I'd be using a desktop app. Could be useful for minor tweaks but as it still kills the URL there is no real advantage over doing it on your own machine.

eτi says:

Well, picnik.com. Tried it out a few weeks ago when it wasn't linked to Flickr and got disappointed after five minutes because even simple effects like dropshadows must be paid for.

I thought it would be better now it's inside Flickr - either we wouldn't see the paid things or we would get them included.

But as it is now, it's just an incentive to spend 25 dollars more.

And I now have so many buttons that they're on two rows (because I have an extra one called Instant Zoom)

Never mind, I now used the RIP add-on for Firefox to get rid of the superfluous buttons (Qoop and Picnik), that appears to work. (edit: Not all the time. Trying Adblock)

I think its a great idea. I think the main use I have with Picnik is to watermark photos as soon as they're uploaded. It would be cool if you could save simple settings for watermarks so they're always available. It would be great if the interface were more customizable so we don't need to see all the stupid symbols and graphics that have to reason to be near photos.

I don't know if this is a Flickr or a Picnik problem.

Using Mac OSX 10.5.1 with Safari 3.0.4, when my photo pops up in Picnik after clicking Edit Photo, I get this message:


www.flickr.com says:
Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page?

You have unsaved changes.

Click OK to continue, or click Cancel to stay on this page.

If I click OK, it takes me back to Flickr.
If I click Cancel, it stays in the Picnik interface.

I don't know why the error message pops up.
Posted ages ago. ( permalink )

V@n PRO says:

Well, I would imagine that merely opening the file has changed that copy of it.

OK abandons those changes, and Cancel returns you to a place where you can Save and/or actively do some editing.

I have no interest in trying this feature to tell for sure, but that agrees with how I've seen other software behave.

Brenda: Hmm. I thought we'd squashed that bug, but perhaps not.

Just opening the image will never change the copy of it on your Flickr account - we (and Picnik) don't do anything to your photos unless you actually choose a "Save" option.

One thought- when you get to the 'do you want to replace your photo on flickr' stage, a little (red and bold?) warning about the possible implications of the replacement would be good.

Replacement has some repercussions that many people don't realise...

I have that problem too, so it is on the fix list.

And van swearingen, it's not a feature, it's a bug. Something in Safari cancels the Picnik window when it loads, as though you yourself had clicked "Cancel".

We just need to track down what's going on there.

Bug report with Tags: (after testing this other forum post)

If you have any commas inside your tags, then Picnik uses it as a delimiter and runs everything on either side of the comma together. Also, if your tags are long, there seems to be a maximum total length that gets posted back to Flickr.

Example:

The (testing) tags on the photo are:

Dock

And on Picnik, that translates to this:

Dock

And when you hit save, the new photo on Flickr has:

Dock

Oh, and my absolute favourite part of the Picnik site is the Vignette, or darkening of photo edges. I usually do the Vignette effect twice on photos already on Flickr before choosing the option to upload a new image, along with linking the original photo used to make the modification as part of the description. And Picnik's Vignette is much easier and better than Photoshop for me. :-)

In other words, Picnik shrinks my photos without telling me. After testing this again, I am sure that Picnik does not let me know that it's going to do this. This is not very nice. Why is it shrinking my photos and how can I get it to stop?

This must be a joke:

Maldicin!

I don't mind that the message appears (I'm sure it has something to do with my network connection) but, c'mon! Can't you find a better translator? :-P

I think it's a limit of the Flash application. Picnik can only handle up to 2800x2800, so if your image is wider than that, it will be shrunk. It is mentioned in the FAQ, but the FAQ does say it will ask you first ... I'm pretty sure that it doesn't, though. :(

Yeah, it totally didn't ask me. :-(

Well, if that's the case, and it's not going to change, then I'm afraid I can't use Picnik anymore for my newest photos. What a shame.

@lucamar:

Can you tell us what's wrong with the translation? We'll forward it on to Picnik's translation team. Unfortunately, we don't have any native Spanish speakers here at Picnik.
