In preparation for when Google pulls the plug on its Piknik photo editing service on April 19th. Flickr has now started to replace its Piknik editing application with Aviary.
Aviary is a HTML 5 styled photo editing application which also supports Apple’s iPad tablet, and will be rolling out across Flickr over the next two weeks, so if its not already in your ‘Actions’ menu yet, check back in a couple days.
The new Flickr Aviary photo editing feature has been designed in partnership with Aviary and has taken on board the request of Flickr users to provide a fast and simple way to edit photographs online.
“Speed. Editing a photo online should be fast. And we’ve worked very hard with the Aviary team to deliver a fast and uncluttered experience. Your photo loads and is ready to be edited in seconds.
Simplicity. Editing on Flickr should be simple and fun. With the Aviary editor, beginners will find that there’s almost no learning curve and more demanding users will appreciate the versatility of the tool. You can apply new app like filters, stickers, text, and save it back to your photostream with just a few clicks.”
