Google to Close Down Picnik

Yesterday, Google announced that it would be shutting down the photo editing site Picnik on April 19, 2012, along with a few other services. Google said that the shut down of Picnik is part of their effort to focus their attention on other projects. Picnik, which Google acquired in March of 2010, had seen quite a bit of success in the last year. Many bloggers and social media users were puzzled at Google decision to close Picnik, and were left wondering what service will they use to edit their photos. Picnik has hinted that their image editing features will be implemented into Google+, Google’s newly launched social network. In the time being, all users of Picnik can now access the premium features usually only available to paying subscribers, and all paying subscribers will be refunded.
