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.
