OK, so what program do you use to edit photos?  i must say i do not use this program and apparently a lot of people do, so what program are you going to use or do you use now?

Google Closing Picnik! Ughhhhh

What a way to start my day. I awoke this morning, headed over to Picnik (my favorite photo editing ever) to learn that they are closing down on April 19th. I get a refund. Big whoop. I don't want the refund and I DON'T WANT Picnik going away. Period, end of sentence. 

After throwing a tantrum, I went back to my computer and did a search to learn more. Here's an article written by Harry McCraken titled Life is Not a Picnik: Google Close It's Cool Photo Editing Tool which goes into the details of this decision. 

If you've used Picnik, whether it's to crop photos, watermark photos, sharpen, and the list goes on, you too have come to realize just how easy a tool it is to use. In fact, I've written many tutorials promoting Picnik as it was just that good.

Also in my search, I found a petition, which I quickly signed. Here's the link: Don't Close Picnik!  As of this writing, they have 307 signatures and are aiming for 400. I'm hoping the list grows to 400,000. 

My final comment - Google, Please do not close down Picnik. And if this falls on deaf ears, then please create a platform that duplicates the awesomeness that Picnik provides and make it available BEFORE April 19th!

I don't use it for MLS photos but for anything I use to put on my blog.

I know, I do not use a photo editor at all, I am wondering why people do use it?
