I am asking for your help, dear Fancy Oatmeal readers!
Some of you may already be aware, but a very popular and user-friendly photo editing site,Picnik.com, is being shut down. Picnik.com is used by many bloggers and amateur photographers. It’s an amazing site that allows users to:
- Resize photos
- Add text, “stickers” and images, borders, and themes
- Create collages
- Share photos in creative ways with friends and family
Why can’t you just use Google+ and their Creative Kit feature?
I have tried and honestly, Creative Kit sucks. It is IDENTICAL to SOME of the features of Picnik, but lacks in the following areas:
- Uploading photos
- Saving photos once uploaded
- No borders
- No collages
- Minimal “stickers”
- Limited themes
However, there has been an online movement to attempt to keep Picnik.com open and operational. Below is a plea, by both myself and the petition creator, Jorden Albright, to have you help us keep Picnik alive and well for those who love it.
Picnik, the ultimate photo editing site that is adored all over this globe is shutting down on April 19th. Unless we do something about it. Please, whether you’ve ever used it or not, or whether you’re an avid photographer, or just stumbled onto this petition… PLEASE take the time to sign it. We WILL stop Picnik from shutting down.
Let’s get #savingpicnik trending on Twitter!

That’s why I signed a petition to Jonathan Sposato, CEO of Picnik.com, which says:
“Don’t shut down Picnik! It’s the best photo editing site out there, especially for amateurs, and many will be lost without it! Picnik corporates, PLEASE don’t shut down!”
