The best web photo editing tool Picnik closed

February 2nd, 2012 5 comments

Google bought Picnik and since then millions of users were left without the opportunity to use their favorite photo editing tool. Seems all users complain about that the best photo editing tool has been sold to Google. Their not so popular and not very interesting (according to users) social network Google+ will be integrated with the new version of Picnik which is currently being developed and implemented there. I can tell that Picnik was rock solid, pretty, very very impressive, easy to use and intuitive, we can only hope that Google will continue the spirit of this one of a kind website.

Tons of users shared on the Picnik’s blog how frustrated, mad and disappointed they feel. Seems many of them get their money back for their premium accounts. I don’t think that this is the way to do business, but it’s Google’s ownership now. I thought that they might find compromised option to leave that pretty website like Youtube. I am glad they didn’t decide to integrate Youtube into one of their services, because I think every huge company when buys some website like the mentioned above they ruin the spirit and the passion of all users.
I feel the pain of all users that used Picnik and I understand their frustration. Hopefully the new “Google+ Picnik” will have the same features and spirit.
