Google Picks Up Picnik

Picnik isn’t just my favorite online image editor–it’s one of my favorite Web-based applications, period, with a clever user interface that improves on that of desktop apps rather than just imitating them.

But this much is true: It should be pretty easy to figure out how to make Picnik’s cool tools into a welcome part of Picasa Web Albums
