Anyone opting to purchase an editing program vs. searching for another site and just holding your breath hoping they dont decide to close shop too?

I am so heart broken... =(

It's my understanding that the Picnik features will still be available after April through Google+ somehow, so I'm not going to do anything just yet. If it's just a matter of going through G+ to edit my photos, well, I'm willing to do it, because I love Picnik.

I'm glad someone posted about this. I love Picnik! So, what other sites are out there? I find Photoshop to be very hard to use and Picnik was super easy and neat to use.

Try Gimp for photo editing

I love Picasa. It's a free service and super easy to use.

I think GIMP is a similar program to photo shop, which is very tech minded.

I tried to just look at the google + and It didn't seem at all like picnik, I just didnt like it.

I am toying with purchasing a program to use but I dont know if there are any out there that have the fun features you find on picnik.

i don't know... there are a few other threads I found with a few sites that I browsed and I didnt really like any of them. Ho hum...... =(
