Buh~Bye Picnik. I’ll Miss You.

Picnik ClosingI’ve been a big fan of Picnik forever. I’ve used it for the past couple of years to edit and store photos but now I’ve received word that Picnik is leaving. I cannot express how sad I am to see Picnik go. I’ve had fun playing with the various editing tools…

For those of us who’ve paid for premium membership, Picnik is offering a full refund!  Woo hoo! What a way to say “good bye”. For the rest of you, you can take advantage of all the premium tools until Picnik officially closes down on 19 April. Seriously, if you’ve never used their editing tools, give it a try and see how much fun you can have.

If you’ve been storing your photos on Picnik, you can “liberate” them by using Picnik Takeout, which will download your photos to your desktop in zip files. You can also transfer your photos to Google +. Might I add this is also a good reason to store your photos on a hard drive (I learned this the hard way a loooong time ago).

Have you ever used Picnik? What photo editing tools will you use now?
