My favorite photo-editing app isn’t an app — it’s a website called Picnik. It’s clean and efficient and dumb enough for the likes of myself. Cropping, resizing, sharpening, tinting, contrasting and red-eye fixes are a snap. And yet Google, the fascist insect that bought Picnic a year or so ago, is closing it down on 4.19. I’m guessing it’ll still be available for Google Plus users, but many people are furious. I’m now looking for an app that’s comparable in terms of ease and simplicity.
At the very least Google should offer a purchasable Picnik app. I would happily shell out. It’s unconscionable to remove a popular photo-editing software without offering some kind of replacement option. Here’s a petition form protesting the Picnik shutdown.
