Picnik is closing this April! Here is an Alternative!Posted: 2012-02-07 Permanent Link
Since being acquired by Google in 2010, the future of Picnik has been in question, would they roll it into their general service or incorporate the features into other products. As of April 19, 2012, Picnik will be closed, the features will be incorporated into Google +.
We have been recommending Picnik to our clients for use as a quick and easy photo editing service, we have searched high and low for a good alternative and are now recommending Pixlr Express. Pixlr Express is a simple tool for quick resizing, cropping, color adjusting, and fun effects for images. If you already have an image on your computer or in an online album that you just want to touch-up a bit, Pixlr Express is the tool for you.
Pixlr.com also offers a great set of image creation and editing tools. Pixlr offers web-based image editing tools as well as image editing tools to use on Android phones and on iPhones. Pixlr also has Firefox and Chrome browser extensions for creating screen captures. So if you want to move up from the express tool, visit Pixlr.com.
