Web-based photo editor Picnik () has released a new feature called Picnik-in-a-Box, which is its new API offering. Any company can now integrate the Picnik tool into their own website for free. As we’ve seen in the past few months, Picnik has been a top choice for several photo-sharing and other types of social networks for adding the value of editing photos directly within their own services.
Flickr () is probably the most notable photo-sharing network that has integrated Picnik’s editing tools, enabling users to edit, add graphics and modify their photos right inside Flickr, without having to work from a desktop application or head over to a third-party website.
Box.net was the other major service to incorporate Picnik’s tools. As a file-sharing network, Box.net ()’s implementation of Picnik’s photo-editing tool has been quite interesting, as the approach has been to bring in as many third-party solutions for modifying, utilizing and managing your files.
The major competitor at this point is Adobe’s web-based Photoshop Express, which is a lightweight version of its Photoshop software. Adobe has been working to line up partners for its web-based service as well, which so far includes Photobucket ().
