Picnik is integrated with a wide variety of websites like Picasa Web Albums, Facebook, Flickr, Yahoo! Mail and Photobucket. Google has been working on becoming bigger and a better part of the Internet which is no surprise why they decided to purchase Picnik, it doesn’t appear to change from the basic premise.
Writing at Google’s Official Blog, Brian Axe, Product Management Director mentions, “We’re very impressed with the Picnik team and the product they’ve created, and we’re excited to welcome them to Google. We’re looking forward to collaborating closely with them to improve the online photo editing experience on the web.”
But on the Picnik blog they had inform that this step will make them to think BIG. They clearly mentioned that “With Google’s worldwide infrastructure and world-class team, it is truly the best home we could have found. Under the Google roof we’ll reach more people than ever before, impacting more lives and making more photos more awesome.”
