Aviary's powerful web-based image editing tools turn free
Aviary's competition is the extremely pricey -- although extremely powerful -- Adobe Creative Suite. While it might not replace the desktop version of Photoshop for power users, the combination of Aviary's Phoenix image editor and Peacock effects editor should get the job for most people. It certainly beats the web-based Photoshop.com, which imposes a 2GB file size limit on free users.
Aviary's other tools include a vector editor, a color palette editor, and even a new audio app called Myna. Hopefully, the price will be right for a lot of new users to take the suite out for a test flight.
