i don't know how to work super savvy design software like photoshop or illustrator, so i've become a pro at using things like picnik and picasa. picnik is my favorite and if you've never used it, it's a photo-editing website where you can do all sorts of fun things to photos and additionally make fun things like collages and such. sad news: picnik is closing on april 19 of this year. happy news: all the premium features on this website are now free to everyone until then! this makes putting together the marketing packets for my music/speaking 100 times easier.
