Well, two weeks ago actually - I just forgot to tell you as I've been busy using them

The tool is Aviary, and here's the website.

It's an amazingly useful service. From quick screen grabs, to annotating, to photo editing or logo creation.
The image editting tool is amazingly good - layers, support for alpha layers, erm, - i find it better than gimp just because it's so simple.
Give it a try. Make sure you use it in a browser with the extension supported.
Let us know how you got on.

    Has anyone tried Aviary yet? What do you make of it?

    Yep, I had a go with it. I actually don't know photo-editing at all, so this is a noobs perspective. Phoenix looked pretty standard, but with a much nicer interface than GIMP (which I've never even managed to successfully resize an image in because the menus are awful and scattered). Aviaries Phoenix editor was simple enough though, although it doesn't seem to have as many filters and things- not sure how useful the extra stuff is.

    But what's really great is the free online space which manages itself. Seemed to save a whole load of uploading and downloading time. It's also nice that it'll let you do work without first registering.

    I was really impressed with peacock though- which is a post drawing editing program, and the process-layout diagram you create is great because you can edit settings and see their independent effects. This is better seen with an example, I made myself an avatar signature:



    One small problem is that the clipboard it uses isn't your local machines clipboard (which is really obvious if you think about it), so I spent ages typing 'print screen','paste', wondering why I was getting the error 'clipboard was empty', so sadly making screenshots isn't so easy.

    cool stuff bud.

    Screenshots are easy - just click the aviary icon (i'm using Chrome and there is an aviary Extension for it - they have one for most browsers), and the first option will be capture visible portion of page. Save it and you get the linky for the forum, Bingo.
