Picnik now in Google’s Picasa

Just four months after it was acquired by Google, Picnik’s now part of Google’s Picasa photo service.

Picnik’s online photo editing tools are now offered from within Picasa Web Albums. Also linked are the account systems, so Picasa recognizes people who paid for premium versions of Picnik.

Picnik founder Jonathan Sposato, who now works across town in Google’s Fremont office, explained the changes to ReadWriteWeb.com, which surmised that more Picnik tools are coming to Google properties. Sposato told the site that that last few months have been spent mostly shifting Picnik to Google’s infrastructure, from Picnik’s own servers and Amazon’s S3 service.
