Google Acquires Picnik: Cloud Photo Editing [googleblog.blogspot.com]
Today, we're excited to announce that Google has acquired Picnik, one of the first sites to bring photo editing to the cloud. Using Picnik, you can crop, do touch-ups and add cool effects to your photos, all without leaving your web browser.
We're not announcing any significant changes to Picnik today, though we'll be working hard on integration and new features. As well, we'd like to continue supporting all existing Picnik partners so that users will continue to be able to add their photos from other photo sharing sites, make edits in the cloud and then save and share to all relevant networks.

Not so fast, the gem in this purchase might be the access into people's facebook accounts via the picnik "connect" feature.

I wonder if this purchase was mainly to hurt Facebook.
