There is a long, long list of desktop applications you could use to edit your images; the problem with them is that they are, well, desktop applications and as such they have to be installed on your computer to work. I think you will agree that this situation is not exactly convenient if you have to edit the image while away from the computer on which you have that application installed.

Picnik does away with the inconvenience posed by desktop photo editing applications. The Picnik site lets you edit your images online; it lets you edit your images in the cloud. Since everything is done in the cloud, you do not have to install anything on your computer. You can visit the Picnik site and edit images no matter where you are; all you need is a computer and an internet connection.

As you may remember, Mountain View-based search engine giant Google acquired Picnik back in March. At the time Google said it is very excited to collaborate with Picnik. The first results of this collaboration have now come to light: Picnik has been integrated into Picasa Web Albums.



“Picnik’s rich editing tools are now integrated into Picasa Web Albums allowing you to experience them without ever having to leave your account. As long as you’re using Picasa in one of the Picnik supported languages, just click ‘edit’ from the edit drop down menu or from the new handy Picnik icon. Then, Picnik away by applying an effect, adding a sticker, or exploring your own creative path with advanced tools. When you are done editing your photo, save back to your album by either replacing the existing image or making a new copy,” explained Thomas Kang and Steve Leroux, Software Engineers for Picasa Web and Picnik.
