Wall Street Journal columnist, Walt Mossberg, has a good piece in today's edition on Picnik, an online, web based photo editing tool.

One of the best examples of these slick new Web-based application is Picnik, a sophisticated, photo-editing application offered free of charge at picnik.com. I have been testing Picnik and I like it a lot. It's a fast and impressive program for tweaking and improving your photos, then posting them to popular photo Web sites, saving them to your own computer, emailing them, or even printing them.

Looks very promising for web based applications.
