No more Picnik??? Say it isn't so!

I'm officially heart broken! I got this email today and it's changed my world. Picnik is closing!!! I'm in shock.

There are some cool things going on with Picnik despite the closure. It's free, the premium Picnik is free and wait...they are refunding everyone's membership! What? Getting money back that I didn't have to beg for? AWESOME!

Any how, run over there and take advantage of Picnik's incredible generosity. PICNIK RULES















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.

Your photos liberated
Amazing photos are created in Picnik, so we have launched a new feature, Picnik Takeout, that easily downloads your photos to your desktop in convenient zip files. You may also elect to copy your photos to Google+ where you can store and share your creations. You may request your photos at any time and use this handy tool as many times as you like until our closing date of April 19, 2012. Learn more.

Premium Refunds
To our primo Picnik Premium members, we'll begin processing a full refund of your current membership fee within a week of this announcement. By "in full" we mean the whole darn thing. Yep, this means even if you are on your very last day of an annual membership, we will refund you the entire $24.95. Just because we want to say thanks.

Now the Good News - Free Premium for ALL!
To express our gratitude for your support over the past 5 years, Picnik Premium is free for everyone! Use Picnik in all of its premium glory, for free, from now until our actual closing day. Touch-up, Textures, Advanced, and more are all free for you to use!

We have been incredibly proud of building a product that is used and beloved by so many of you. We continue to be amazed and humbled by the photos you create and we are immensely grateful for all of your support, creativity, and passion.

We are excited by the photo-editing fun we have already brought to Google products, like Google+, where you can find many of your favorite Picnik effects in Creative Kit. We encourage you to visit Google+ and give it a whirl.

Please visit the Help Hub for more information on our wind down, and check the Picnik blog for updated information on our April closure.

It's been awesome,
Team Picnik

  1. I wonder what will replace it? Is there a comparable alternative? I haven't really used it, though I've thought about it. Limited time.

  2. What do we use instead - I have been a huge fan of Picnik as it is so easy to use.

  3. Picnik is being added to Google+ so I guess we could check out Google +. It is pretty awesome that we will still get to use the premium until the middle of April. Picnik is too cool!

  7. Wow!!! Your blog looks awesome. Kristina told me about Picnik closing down. I was shocked!!! She was able to take advantage of the premium services for free and did some neat things.

    I'm sorry I haven't been by in a LONG time. I haven't been blogging in a LONG time due to different reasons. I am looking to get back to posting but I'll be doing so on my Julie's Jewels facebook fan page. I have a greater opportunity to be an encouragement to people on there that I'm friends with that don't and/or won't go to my blog.

    My page is public and you can get to it from my blog in my latest post. I'm sorry we have lost touch.

    Oh yeah....and your kids have grown so much!! They have grown so much that it makes me feel like it's been forever since I visited your blog. Although I know it has been a LONG time.

    Love you and it's great to see you are still serving the Lord and doing well.

  8. have you ever tried Picasa? It is a wonderful free photo editing program from google. It allows blog posting, you can do blog headers, and you can send your pictures from the program to be printed!
