Google has announced that it has bought Picnik, one of the first cloud-based photo editing websites. They haven’t announced any changes yet, just integration and the maintaining of current services but an online version of Picasa built into the web albums would be very cool. Provided you like Google storing and editing your photos for you.

More than ever before, people are sharing and storing their photos online. But until recently, you had to edit your photos using client software on your computer. Today, we’re excited to announce that Google has acquired Picnik, one of the first sites to bring photo editing to the cloud. Using Picnik, you can crop, do touch-ups and add cool effects to your photos, all without leaving your web browser.
