Please Help Save Picnik!


If you're anything like me you've spent all weekend in grief, shock and anger at the news of the closure of Picnik. I still can't believe it. I use Picnik to edit pretty much all of my photos and am on it every day. I'm always telling people how great it is. I have it open on another tab right now, but it is tinged with sadness because we only have 3 months left together. This might seem like an overreaction, but many others feel the same, and there are angry comments being left on the Picnik blog and petitions to sign.

If you are affected in any way by the closure of Picnik, please sign this petition and lets hope somehow we can save it!

It's a real shame. I only use it for a few things these days as it often crashes on my new laptop, but will still miss it. :(

I found this list yesterday of other similar sites to Picnik - not tried any of them yet but hopefully one of them might be alright.

I'm hoping they might still reconsider but it doesn't look too likely. It does seem that google is trying to blackmail people into using google+.

Deb - thanks for that list. I will investigate!
