Picnik, currently at #42 on our Photo 100 list, is being purchased by Google. As the company noted in a blog post, “More than ever before, people are sharing and storing their photos online. But until recently, you had to edit your photos using client software on your computer.” No longer. With Picnik and other photo editors—see our list of the top 7 online photo editors—you’re able to tweak and revise your images with sophisticated, flexible browser-based software.
Google also had this to say:
We’re not announcing any significant changes to Picnik today, though we’ll be working hard on integration and new features. As well, we’d like to continue supporting all existing Picnik partners so that users will continue to be able to add their photos from other photo sharing sites, make edits in the cloud and then save and share to all relevant networks
