Google Acquires Picnik Photo Editor

March 1, 2010

Picnik is a cloud app that gives you the power to edit your photos and images in your web browser. You simply upload the photo or image you desire to tweak or fix.  With Picnik you can fix underexposed photos, remove red-eye, or apply effects to your photos without the need of installing software on your PC.

Picnik is a fast, fun, easy to use and powerful set of photo editing tools for editing, sharing and printing images using any internet browser on any computer platform. Picnik is integrated with a wide variety of websites like Picasa Web Albums, Facebook, Flickr, Yahoo! Mail and Photobucket. With Picnik, you can edit your photos wherever they are from wherever you are.

And all this leads us to today’s exciting news: we’ve just been acquired by Google! What does this mean for Picnik? It means we can think BIG. Google processes petabytes of data every day, and with their worldwide infrastructure and world-class team, it is truly the best home we could have found. Under the Google roof we’ll reach more people than ever before, impacting more lives and making more photos more awesome.
