Picnik.com to Provide Premium Photo Editing Direct From E-mail Accounts

Now Yahoo! Mail Users Can Party on Their Pictures With Picnik.com Without Having to Leave Their Inbox

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - June 5, 2009) - Beginning today, Yahoo! Mail users can view, edit and create with their photos right in Yahoo! Mail with the leading photo editor, Picnik (www.picnik.com).

Using the Yahoo! Mail Picnik integration, users can now access Picnik right from Yahoo! Mail -- without leaving the site. Users can use Picnik to spice up their photos using Picnik's wide array of tools, stickers, frames, text, collages and more.

"Picnik being chosen as a suggested photo application on the new Yahoo! Mail is a huge vote of confidence -- we feel like we were picked in the first round of the NBA draft," said Jonathan Sposato, chief executive officer of Picnik.com. "What's amazing about this integration is that for the very first time, all Yahoo! Mail users will have Picnik's photos 'superpowers' right inside their e-mail experience. You can tell that the goal of the new Yahoo! Mail is to bring users very rich utility, high quality experiences in a fun and productive setting."

As a part of this integration, the Picnik application will recognize and pick out all e-mails that contain photos and will pull various thumbnails up to begin editing. You are then able to select and edit your photo -- all within Yahoo! Mail. Once you have completed your editing, you can save your image to your computer, tweet it, or share it with friends and family through your favorite social networking and photo-storage sites like Facebook, Flickr or Photobucket just as if you were inside Picnik.

Recently, Picnik was one of the first online photo editing applications to offer photo enthusiasts the ability to 'tweet' their jazzed-up snapshots to Twitter.com and Twitgoo.com -- all directly from Picnik.com.
