Flickr, as planned, has partnered with Picnik to bring online editing of photos to its users. Interesting that Yahoo went for a partnership than purchasing the company outright or developing its own editing program. Flickr's George Oates says, "Rather than Flickr diverting from our speciality to enter a realm we had no (particular) expertise in, the thought of a partnership seemed much more sensible." Which would make sense if Yahoo didn't own Jumpcut, a site which provides online video-editing tools. [Flickr Blog]
