Google buys Picnik, now competes with Adobe’s PhotoShop.com
Yet one more area Google steps in. This time it is on-line image editing. Google announced today that it has bought Picnik, a web based image editing website. The company did not disclose the acquisition terms. Picasa, Google’s flagship image sharing web application is limited when it comes to direct image manipulation and editing. Picnik resolves it, and enhances the company’s chance to compete head-on with Adobe’s PhotoShop.com.
