Hi everyone! Thank you so much for all of the entries for the giveaway and for all of you who have participated in the Disney Tag. It's been lots of fun seeing everybody's answers. :)
This is a sad day for many of us in the blogging world. (And no, I'm not talking about SOPA, although I'm a bit concerned by that, too!) I just got an email from Picnik.com last night, explaining that on April 19th, Picnik will be closing. I have loved using Picnik for editing photos, creating headers, and much more. I'm really going to miss it.
Along with this sad news comes some happy news for all of you. From now until their closing, Picnik is offering their premium package, normally $24.95 per year, for free! You can make things and save them to your computer for future use, so if you want to have some extra headers or blog buttons on hand, now is the time to do it!
The nice thing about Picnik premium is you have many more options for photo collages, fonts, and effects. You also can store somewhere around 100 pictures at a time on Picnik instead of the 5 at a time for their normal free service.
The email was somewhat vague, but it kind of sounds like they're merging with Google plus, and it may be possible to transfer photos over from Picnik. Hopefully it won't be too much of a hassle or too expensive!
Just thought I'd get the word out to everyone. I'm not a real fan of change, especially when I've found something that works well for me, so I'm pretty disappointed by this. I'm sure life will go on without Picnik, though. I think. ;)
I'll keep you guys updated if I find another site that I like just as well.
