Picnik Touch Up Suite

The Best Spray Tan on the Internet: Picnik's New Touch Up Suite

Picnik is a cool program for editing and aggregating photos online, especially if you don't have a copy of Photoshop handy. But recently, they introduced a lady-geared suite of features called Touch Up that has options like Sunless Tan, Highlights, Teeth Whitener, Blemish Fix, and my least favorite, Insta-Thin. (Because, you know, we girls always want to be thin.)

I decided to try it because I find the whole photo-editing thing dubious; I understand that this stuff's an accepted part of our culture, but I'm just saying that I don't think it's so great for our psyches to worry about "perfection." To find out what my experience was like, just read more.

Here's the long and short of it: Touch Up was fun to play with, but more in a "What would I look like with bright pink lipstick and blond highlights?" kind of way than a "OMG, I need to look hotttt on Facebook now" kind of way, which actually makes me like it more. And the Insta-Thin feature, which I can't stand in principle, is just goofy in practice.

I also value a good Blemish Fix, and I have to admit that the Sunless Tan is pretty fun. I don't think the brave volunteer whose picture I used looks prettier per se, but she does look different in an entertaining way. So my verdict on this one is that it's harmless fun, but that perhaps its makers need to re-evaluate the terms and ideas they use to sell women on their product.
