I have learned so much over the past years and helped so many others start their blogs that I thought I would share a bit of that knowledge with you. I have discovered some websites and blogs that have been so helpful for me in creating my blogs.
Moving on to those great sites. I will start with picture editing in this post. I have found several editing places that all have their own appeal and I use them all for different reasons. The first is Picasa. If you use blogger as your blog platform then you have a Picasa account whether you realize it or not because that is where all your blogger photos are hosted. I encourage you to go to the Picasa website and download their software today (unless you are blessed with Photoshop) This is a great picture editing and storage site. It has sharing and editing capabilities that I make use of on a regular basis. It is the picture software that I use most on my blog pictures. The best news about it is that it is free. They also have many useful capabilities in the web storage part of their site. You can purchase additional storage space on Picasa for a small fee. It took me a couple of years before I needed to purchase more space on Picasa for my blog and I post lots of photos. The purchase price has been worth every penny because I can access it from so many websites where I need my pictures. It also links with my Google+ account which is just one more reason for me to stick with them.

A great place to make cover photos for your facebook account and to do lots of other edits to your photos is piZap. piZap gives you the opportunity to see exactly how it will look on your facebook profile, even with your profile picture in place before you save it, which will save you much time trying to position it perfectly. They have lots of effects, fonts, frames and other goodies to offer with their online editor.

I haven't quite convinced myself to make the leap to Photoshop yet because I have found so many great free sites. One of those that rivals Photoshop is GIMP. This site is for those of you who like to control more of the details and want to work with layers and who want to do more manipulating of your pictures like taking out backgrounds or changing the colors completely, etc. You can find tons of free brushes, actions, and tutorials all over the web for GIMP which will add to your overall experience. This software must be downloaded and is not for the faint of heart because it takes a bit to learn how to do it. Be sure to check YouTube for tutorials on this one.
