Seattle-based Picnik was first founded in 2005, and recently announced that it had passed a landmark billion edited photos. The company has around twenty employees, and offers both free and paid image editing services. The free version provides a limited selection of fonts, shapes, frames, collages, effects, touch-up tools and editing tools, and keeps track of the editing history for the five most recently edited images, while providing unlimited undo capabilities. Picnik Premium adds further fonts, shapes, frames and effects, as well as further editing tools such as Curves and Levels or the Clone tool, plus unlimited photo history and undo. The Premium service also removes advertising banners, and is priced at $5 per month, $20 for six months, or $25 annually.
No new features have been added coinciding with the acquisition, and existing Picnik accounts will continue to function without change. More details can be found in the Picnik blog and Google Photos blog.
