Image Fun: Flickr Toys

Flickr is great, especially with the Picnik editor being available now. But what if you want to do something a little more creative with your photos and either lack the editing skill to do so, or just don’t want to pay for Picnik’s premium features? It’s been around for a long time, but Big Huge Labs’ (or FD’s) Flickr Toys provide a great, easy way to play around with your images.

One nice touch is the ability to link directly with your Flickr photostream, both for downloading the original images and uploading your new creations (you need to give the Flickr Toys permission to access your account, but it’s all done securely). You can also upload images directly to Big Huge Labs, use photobucket, or specify an image from anywhere on the web by giving its URL.
