    Pictaculous as of now (October/November 2019) has been taken offline and is no longer available. I have even emailed MailChimp Support on this issue, and even their staff wasn't even aware that they used to have such a service - that they have to ask their upper management and engineering staff on this. And there is no plan to continue Pictaculous. So anyone who wants to have something similar? Try Color Hunter instead.
