Picnik was one of those rare websites that you could use, without constantly having to contact customer service re one issue or another.
As promised, they returned the subscription fee to those faithful Picnikers who'd signed up for a year's premium service after May 2011.
And offered a bonus to boot- as although acquired by Google in 2010, users can now use the premium services that the site offered, for free, until its funeral day.
(Google acquired Picnik in March 2010, in order to access it API, which enables user-friendly image editing).
But not to worry, the design and photo (image) editing acumen of the Picnik team has been integrated into Google products old and new...
E.g. they can bee seen in Picasa and the photo editing features of Google+, respectively.
Picnik, it's sad to see you go, but we know you're in a much better place.
Those Google guys had better be taking great care of you! :)
Pssst - website/ecommerce site owners, Internet Marketers...want to know how to delight your customers?
Just go on over to the Picnik site and see how customer service should be done...
Even in death, Picnik has left great clues for new life!
