Picasa, an image organizer and viewer for organizing and editing digital photos has been owned by Google since 2004. In March 2010, Google acquired online photo editor Picnik which was expected to be main feature in next coming version of chrome OS. But now they have integrated the impressive Flash-based image editor, Picnik with Picasa Web Albums enabling users to make changes in photographs directly from Picasa using the Edit menu, “Edit with Picnik”.

Picnik allows users to rotate an image, crop, resize, plays on the color saturation or correcting red eyes in the publishing aspects. In the creation part, it will apply various effects with add text, adding frames and stickers and you can explore your own creative path with advanced tools, but not in free of cost as of now. A pro version is available for $4.95 a month that allows access to additional effects and fonts. Picasa Web Albums users using English, Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Vietnamese versions can be able to use Picnik photo editing.
