Google acquires photo-editing site

Google Inc acquired online photo-editing site Picnik. Google did not disclose the financial terms of the deal for Picnik, a 5-year-old Seattle-based start-up which said on its website that it has 20 employees. Google spokesman Andrew Pederson said that the Picnik team has joined Google’s Seattle office and will work with Google’s Picasa group. Picasa is Google’s Web photo sharing service. Picnik allows users to edit online photos from directly within a Web browser, eliminating the need for special, stand-alone editing software
