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.

Oh, bummer! I always thought Picnik was so cool, and even used it from time to time when I had an image already online that I wanted to edit quickly. It was a very innovative service back when it launched in 2007.

I’m curious to see what becomes of it once it’s been fully sucked in to Google+. It would be a shame if they limited it, or made it so you can only edit photos that you’ve put on Google+.
