Google announced its latest acquisition on Monday, the online image editing service Picnik.
In Google's own words, Picnik was "one of the first sites to bring photo editing
to the cloud."
Picnik features a Flash-powered interface that lets you tweak, crop, and touch-up your photos in your Web browser, avoiding the need to launch Photoshop, iPhoto, or your other favorite photo-editing software.
The site already integrates with Google's photo-sharing site Picasa, along with Facebook, Flickr, Yahoo Mail, and Photobucket.
A blog post on Picnik says that support for all the non-Google sites will remain
Fans of Picnik needn't panic; Google says it's not planning any big changes to the site, and plans, instead, to focus on new features.
"We're not announcing any significant changes to Picnik today, though we'll be working hard on integration and new features," Google said.
"As well, we'd like to continue supporting all existing Picnik partners so that users will continue to be able to add their photos from other photo sharing sites, make edits in the cloud and then save and share to all relevant networks," the company said.
