Google Blends Picnik Photo Editing with Picasa
Google July 13 blended its Picnik Web photo editing technology with Picasa Web Albums. The move comes just two weeks after Facebook began testing new tagging technology on Facebook photos.Google July 13 said it has blended Picnik, the Web photo editing technology it acquired in March, with Picasa Web Albums. This means users using Picasa can click the edit choice from the Edit drop-down menu or from the Picnik icon to add funny comments to their photos in thought clouds, or add stickers and other doodles.
Users can also execute basic edits such as cropping and resizing images, or changing colors. Users can save the edits to their Picasa Web album by replacing the existing image or making a new copy.
