Goodbye Picnik

About a week ago, Picnik announced that they would be shutting down in mid April 2012.  Picnik is a super simple image editing tool that even the most novice designer could feel comfortable using.  So if you are a Picnik user, it is time to find and learn a new tool or two.

Here is my list of free image editing tools, all ranging in level of difficulty.  You can check them out in the Chrome Web Store.  If you are so inclined, comment below!  Which tool do you prefer?  Did I leave any notable tools off of the list?

Aviary Image Editor-  powerful layer-based image editor
Aviary Markup- an easy way to crop and resize images
Pixlr-  similar to Photoshop; allows you to edit PSD files
Pixlr-o-matic-  add filters & borders to your photos
Picozu- photo-editing, retouching, and drawing all-in-one
iPiccy-  the most similar to Picnik that I have found
Sumo Paint- image editing and drawing
