Picnik, an online picture editing tool has been acquired by Google. The tool was awesome and was used by many. You could just select your pictures from Picasa, Flickr or Facebook and tweak it on the go.
This could be really helpful for Google Picasa as this would enhance editing options in Picasa . It could even be implemented on Google Image Search for say, if you wanted to quickly sharpen a picture, you could use this.
Picnik is really excited about the acquisition by Google and here’s what they’ve got to say :
