Google updates Picnik with a bunch of ghoulish, Halloween effects, stickers and fonts

Picnik, a Web-based photo manipulation service that Google acquired back in March, has just received a bunch of new Halloweenesque effects, stickers, fonts. After uploading a photo, you can now add such fantastic effects as 'vampire eyes', 'draculan dermis', fangs or 'zombify 2.0'. As you can see above, you can create some pretty scary results! Admittedly my face doesn't require much help to...

DLS Review: Picasa 3.8 released, now with Picnik editor

Picasa 3.8 was unleashed upon the world a couple of days ago. It brings with it several major features, such as Batch Upload, something called "Face Movie," which creates an animation out of a series of images of the same person, and last but certainly not least, Picnik photo editing. That's right – Picasa can now upload your photo seamlessly to Picnik, and it allows you to edit it there,...

Google acquires web-based photo editor Picnik

Google builds a lot of fantastic web-based tools in-house, but it's been known to buy up some really nice existing services instead of reinventing the wheel. Picnik, a popular web-based photo editor, is Google's latest grab. It makes a lot of sense, because Picnik does a great job of cropping and touching up photos, and it comes with a lot of fun effects. If Google plans to reinvent photo-editing...

Aviary online image editor leaves the roost, launches public beta

Dr. Pic: A no-Flash online image editor

There are plenty of web-based image editors out there. And while I love me some Picnik, Fotoflexer, or Splashup action, there's one thing that Dr. Pic can do that none of the other online image editors do: Operate on a computer that doesn't have Flash installed. That's because Dr. Pic is built using nothing but AJAX. While you probably won't have much luck using the service with Internet...

Photosharing - comparing Flickr, Photobucket and Zooomr

Flickr gets Picnik photo editing power

Sure, Flickr is a great place to find and share images. But wouldn't it be nice if you could also edit those images online? Now you can.

While you're waiting for Adobe to release Photoshop Express, you might want to take a look at Splashup.

Now Techcrunch's Mike Arrington (without an H) reports that Picnik has landed one heck of a deal: Flickr will be adding Picnik...
