About Us


Once upon a time, serious photo editing was left to graphic designers. Professional software packages like Photoshop are powerful, but very expensive and so complex that courses run into thousands of dollars and years of study. In 2005, along came a tool called Picnik, and suddenly advanced image manipulation came to the public. Easy, free, and powerful, the website revolutionized professional photo editing by making it available to everyone.

When Google announced Picnik's impending closure in early 2012 there was enormous public outcry. People had come to rely on the service, that brought "photo awesomeness" to everyone, and they weren't happy to see it go, to say the least.

Along came Ribbet! Packed with all the original Picnik functionality and built on the same platform that made it great, Ribbet offers a familiar interface and the same ease-of-use that people have come to love. We adopted the frog that demonstrates the different photo effects, and would like to give special thanks to Igor Siwanowicz for his permission to use his beautiful tree frog photo. To purchase his photographs please contact Lisa.

We have now launched a developer API and have many more exciting additions in store. Stay tuned on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

So please enjoy our site and feel free to discuss anything with us either on Facebook or you can email us directly at support [at] ribbet.com. We are a small and elite team of programmers and designers based in Westwood, Los Angeles, the home of UCLA. We are committed to bringing you the best, easy-to-use photo editing tools ever, and are thrilled to be a part of the people's photo editing revolution!
