A few months ago, PICNIK.com announced they were closing the site. The last day was to be April 19, 2012. Well little did I know that they would RELAUNCH but not as picnik... the new name is RIBBET.com. Based on what Brad mentions below and the site, all of the same features are being provided but they are just listed under a new name.
Odd? yeah I thought so too, but it is what it is. Be sure to check it out. Brad actually provides a link within his post if you are interested in getting an INVITATION.
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… :)
