Definitely not for the birds...the Aviary online media manipulation suite
April 25, 2009 7:14 AM   Subscribe

Worth1000 arguably the best place for photoshops on the web, has released their newest creative effort...an online set of image (and eventually audio and video) tools called Aviary (a review here). And look at what it can do (when I looked, there was a three-mouthed monkey - that's definitely awesome)!

"Occupation: Sysadmin"

Just as I suspected.

So is Aviary trying to be an on-line productivity suite?

Big deal, I've seen a monkey with five asses.

It does explain "there are no other MeFi users nearby."

Aviary and Raven are really freaking cool.

While these applications are undeniably awesome for web apps, I personally don't understand the reason for a pay as you go service. I guess it would be nice to bounce ideas off of people with similar interests, but if you were that serious about your work, why would you want to use wanna be applications and not the real deal? You can export output as a jpeg or gif but I bet the raw files are not compatible with current desktop apps. And if you think the terrific gallery archives are representative of what the average guy can do with these apps, think again. They were created by regulars from the Worth1000 site who are Photoshop experts. They could have done the same with MSPaint. Your mileage *will* vary.

Aviary is better than MSPaint for a lot of stuff when Photoshop-Illustrator arent available, like in a corporate environment. But it still feels too much like a webapp and is not intuitive when going from adobe stuff in my limited experience.

I bet it will give adobe a run for their money in a year or two though.

...on-line productivity suite

Do all these words even make sense together?
