Official Announcement: Picnik is closing
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’s been a heck of a ride for Picnik. Besides building a fabulous online app for photo editing, they built a great community as well.
The announcement about Picnik was like watching your next door neighbor of the past 5 years, the one you could rely on and who regularly brought you warm pecan pie fresh out of the oven, tell you about the fabulous job offer they just accepted and that they’re moving to the other side of the country. You can only wish them well, but inside you’re crying a little.
