  • Picnik was a fantastic online image editing suite. I was extremely pleased when Google bought it in 2010. But not so pleased now cos they've shut it down. In fact I'm gutted. It's last day was April 19, 2012. Here are Google's comments

    “As we head into 2012, we’ve been sticking to some old resolutions — the need to focus on building amazing products that millions of people love to use every day,” Google said via its blog. “That means taking a hard look at products that replicate other features, haven’t achieved the promise we had hoped for or can’t be properly integrated into the overall Google experience.”

    Fortunately there is a replacement coming along. Picmonkey was created by two former Picnik engineers, Justin Huff and Brian Terry, who quit their jobs at Google a few months ago to dive headfirst again into the startup world. In many respects, PicMonkey is like Picnik 2.0, featuring a similar design aesthetic and functionality. I tried out Picmonkey this frame was added to my vintage photo, I think I'm gonna like it.
