Google has just acquired another company as announced by the company’s official blog. It’s Picnik, a fun, online image editor that was founded in 2005 and since then become one of the most feature-rich online image editor partnering with various photo uploading sites including Flickr.
Picnik offers some easy-to-use tool that you can use to enhance, modify, and add more excitement to your photos. All done online at the Picnik site, I mean website.
Picnik claims of millions of visitors monthly, which is probably one of the reason why Google acquired it. While Picasa Web Album is a pretty good photo uploading site, tying up with Picnik could add some luster to Google’s photo sharing site.
But of course it is still uncertain yet what Google will do with Picnik. Although the Picnik folks said that nothing is going to change right away. They are just moving to Google office as they continue to provide the same service, at the moment.
Knowing Google, it will just be a matter of time before it makes use of Picnik to advance a certain goal. In the meantime, congratulations to the Picnik team!
