How to Make It Look Like There Is Grass in Your Eyes on Picnik

The popular photo editing and sharing website, Picnik, allows users to create free accounts for uploading, editing and adding fun special effects to photos. If you want even more options for touching up or adding special effects to photos you can purchase a premium membership. This premium membership will give you the tools to create a variety of special effects. One fun effect that is sure to get attention, is the addition of grass to your eyes.

Login to your Picnik account. If you don't have an account, you'll be prompted to create one upon visiting the website. In order to access the premium content on the site, you will need to upgrade to a premium membership. You'll find the link to upgrade in the upper right corner of your membership screen.

Click the "Upload Photo" button from your Home screen to select a photo from your hard drive to manipulate in Picnik. When it comes to making it look like there is grass in your eyes, you'll want to select a headshot. The bigger your face is in the photo, the more clear the effect will be.

Click on "Create" in the upper menu bar of your Picnik window to access your special effects options. To find grass, select " Stickers" from the menu on top of your image.

Scroll through the available sticker collections on the left side of your screen until you find the Spring collection by Picnik. Within this collection is a sticker of growing grass.

Click on the grass sticker to add it to your photo.

Drag the image over the center of your eyeball and resize it as necessary so that it fits within the iris region of the eye.

Repeat the above steps for the other eye.
