Since joining Google in 2010, we have been creating editing magic in Google products while continuing to keep Picnik awesome. But now we get to focus on even awesomer things. Picnik will be closing on April 19, 2012.


It seems that Google is closing the popular image editing site, that is embedded into competitors Flickr and Facebook. I assume this means that from April 29th people will only have access to image editing directly on Google+?

I did wonder at the time why G would buy a service so tightly linked to Yahoo's Flickr service, now I guess we know it was only to undermine them as competitors.
