Picnik offers premium image editing features for free

Picnik Premium v. FreeOnline image editor Picnik has always offered two tiers of service. Free users could access most of the popular image editing tools, while paid subscribers got a few extra bells and whistles and access to early beta features. But up until this week, there were no ads on the site whether you paid for an annual subscription or not.

Yesterday, Picnik decided to take all of the editing tools that had been available only to Premium members and offer them for free. This makes Picnik one of the most advanced free photo editors around, and puts the company in a good position to compete with FotoFlexer and the upcoming Adobe Photoshop Express.

But Picnik isn't getting rid of paid memberships altogether. You an still shell out $25 per year to get early access to new features, the ability to edit in a full screen mode, and an ad-free interface.
