Picnik.com offers photo editing tools through Photobucket’s Open API
Picnik has launched its Photobucket integration. Using Photobucket’s just-released API, Picnik provides Photobucket’s nearly 40 million users with its popular photo editing tools, special effects, unique shapes, customized fonts and frames â€“ all from where their photos are already stored.
With this API integration, Picnik users can now bridge seamlessly with Photobucket to edit and enhance their digital photos. Picnik users will have a Photobucket ‘tab’ placed within Picnik.com, have the ability to create a Photobucket specific album, view and edit all their Photobucket images and save their “Picniked” photos back to Photobucket — all without ever having to leave the page.
The Photobucket API now enables all developers, including Picnik, to create applications that let users access their Photobucket photos and videos from environments outside Photobucket.com. Since the Photobucket API works on any device with an Internet connection, those environments might include other Web sites, Web applications, desktop applications, browser plug-ins, mobile phones, home-entertainment systems, digital photo frames and digital cameras.
