Picnik.com Gets Reincarnated as Ribbet

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Crown Key Realty, Inc; Tracy & Mountain House Sales and Property Management 01490605

Do you miss Picnik?  Are so completely frustrated with your inability to edit photos online?  Well ribbet is almost here.  Brad so kindly told everyone today.  The only glitch is you have to get on the waiting list, as Ribbet is not quite ready for the masses....


Original content by Brad Andersohn

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…  :)

Susan:  I have heard some really positive things about Ribbet, and have put myself on their waiting list.  Picnik was so easy for me... being the non-techie that I am.

Speaking of Picnik being "re-incarnated..." if reincarnation works... I wonder what I'll come back as... ?  LOL

I loved Picnik and am on the list for Ribbet!  Not sure why Picnik had to go away if Ribbet it just like it!

DeeDee:  I am guessing that now... when Ribbet becomes active... that there will be an upgraded version that we have to pay for, subscribe to, if we want to use it.  So perhaps Ribbet wil be the "monetized" version of Picnik ?

And as you know, Susan, there is a waiting list for 'Ribber' - I hope to get my membership soon...

(Although I used Irfanview, for a quick re-size, PICNIK was best -- and now, it will be...RIBBET)

Praful:  The reason there is a waiting list for Ribbet... is that it is not "active" yet.  They are still finishing and tweaking the website.  The waiting list is so they can notify everyone who is interested... when the website is activated.
