    Picnik

    My favourite, most intuitive and creative edititing suite has sold out to Google+ and is closing it's doors in April and returning subscriptions.

    Am totally gutted and miserable.

    It was only a matter of time since they were already built into Picasa. I never used the premium version (will now while it's free) but from the message sounds like the premium features may be moving into the Creative Kit? I tried that this AM and it's basically the same Piknik interface and basic tools. Perhaps they'll be offering up the whole shebang for free under Google Plus.

    Hi Fit.

    I tried it on Google plus but can't see how you save the edited version to your computer.

    Any clue would be appreciated.

    I'll try to noodle it a bit... without a Picasa interface, using G+ would be like using Facebook for file storage and editing which is bleh. Glad I'll be getting Lightroom and PS soon enough.

    Can't get my head around photoshop Chris.

    I have worked out how to save pics to Picassa via G+ but the edits on offer are just some basics from Picnik.

    They claim it will be getting improved but since they effectively own Picnik now why not just load the whole Picnik functionality and they would have had a guaranteed user group.

    I suppose it depends on whether they bought all the functionality or just parts of it.

    Have you tried PIXLR? http://pixlr.com/

    The editor is pretty robust for a free application.

    Thanks Chris , I will have a look.

    There are some neat effects here too but I don't see anything replacing picnik for ease of use and creativity.

    You're welcome- it's like a very slimmed-down photoshop and does pretty good job for what it is.

    Welcome to CiC, Jennifer.

    Would you mind completing your profile; just click the "My Profile" button at the top of this page.

    That will take you to the right page. Click the "about me" tab and please fill in at least your first name and where you are from. Clicking the pencil symbol beside those fields lets you edit the fields. We tend to be a pretty informal bunch here at CiC and go on a first name basis.

    Just a bit of a "head's up"; if you look at this thread, the last response was posted around 3 years ago, so it's a bit long in the tooth.
