Picnik was founded and run as a small Seattle startup in the Fall of 2005 by Mike, Darrin and Jonathan, and grew into a team of about 20 people working in downtown Seattle, near Pike Place Market. In March of 2010, Picnik was thrilled to announce they’d joined the Google family of consumer apps and moved to the Google offices in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle where we’re eating Google’s famous lunches and still working hard at building the easiest, most fun and awesome online photo editor out there.
