Many of you are designers who have access to the entire Adobe Creative Suite that includes Photoshop to manage and manipulate graphic images. But non-graphic designers who have been at a real disadvantage when they want to make even quick tweaks to images. Now, using Aviary, you non-graphic design folks can work on or create a new graphic or even an audio file!
I have been using Aviary for a couple of years to take quick screenshots of websites or images from the web. I noticed recently that they are now affiliated with Google Apps and the entire web-based software is totally free! This powerful suite of design tools includes such apps as an:
- Image Editor: Use the Aviary Image Editor for basic image retouching or complex effect creating business cards, letterhead, PowerPoint slides and website headers
- Markup Editor: Use the Markup Editor to crop, resize and markup images and web pages captured from your browser including a screen capture tool.
- Vector Editor: Use the Aviary Vector Editor to create fully scalable vector art.
- Audio Editor: Use the Aviary Audio Editor to remix music tracks and audio clips. Apply sound effects and record your own voice and instruments.
Here is a video from Aviary to give you a little taste.
