Picnik.com Gets Reincarnated as Ribbet

Education & Training with Executive Director of Education and Industry Outreach RETechCampus

Picnik.com closes today. The NEW Ribbet.com will be opening very soon and the only difference between the two is the name. Ribbet.com looks EXACTLY like Picnik and will offer the same exact style and type of features.

If you like easy access to your images, photos and graphics with the ability to create collages, add text overlays, adjust contrast and brightness, combine images, use custom effects and more, then Ribbet is the NEW online graphic/photo/image editor for you.  Ribbet.com looks like the reincarnation of Picnik.com.

“When Google announced Picnik’s impending closure in early 2012 there was enormous public outcry. People had come to rely on the service, that brought “photo awesomeness” to everyone, and they weren’t happy to see it go, to say the least.

Along came Ribbet! Packed with all the original Picnik functionality and built on the same platform that made it great, Ribbet offers a familiar interface and the same ease-of-use that people have come to love. read more…

 Since Ribbet has not gone live just yet, you can request an invite to join.  Go for it!

The screen shot of Ribbet (below) demonstrates just how much the NEW Ribbet resembles the OLD and now closed Picnik. It’s amazing to see how much these two look and feel like the same site.  Hmmm...  Almost makes you wonder if there isn’t something fishy going on here…  :)

Something fishy, huh?  You're SO funny Brad.  Thanks for sharing about this new site.  I started using iPiccy and was perfectly happy (so far).  I will have to give this a try when it goes live.

Thanks everyone for your comments, Im trying to find out from Ribbet when they'll be launching.

Will report back soon...

In the meantime, iPiccy.com and PicMonkey.com are both up and running and excellent online editing sites too.

Here's My FUN PicMoney Image After Editing:

Can anyone guess what this is or was originally?  :-))

I'll bet someone bought the code or licensed it so they could bring up this new site.  Personally, I use Corel Paintshop Photo Pro.  It does most of what Photoshop will do but priced a lot less.

Bryan - I love using Paintshop Pro. I remember purchasing it way back when just because at the time I couldn't afford Adobe photoshop.  Since I'm on the go a lot now, having easy access to online free tools has come in very handy.

Brad, I received PhotoShop Elements with my Nikon Camera a few years ago and it is just the same as Photoshop minus a very few "Bells & Whistles". I still preferred to use Picasso/Piknik as it is all I need for RE gigs....I'll see how it goes with Ribit

Will wait for your webinar..whenver that happens!

Hi Frank - hope you're doing well, or at least better!!  Sorry to hear about your hospital visits, hopefully, that's all behind you now.  Looks like Ribbet will be going live any day now, looking forward to using their platform for sure. Take care ok?
