Aviary Makes Screen Grabs Insanely Easy
written by Adam Ostrow
Web-based image editor Aviary has just made it exceptionally easy to grab, edit, and share screen captures.
To get started, all you need to do is type in “aviary.com/” in front of the URL of the page you’d like to screenshot. From there, Aviary opens up its web-based image editor, where you can do things like crop, resize, and adjust the quality of the image, as well as use some of Aviary’s editing tools, like adding text, doodles, or arrows.
Once you’re satisfied with the image, all you need to do is either save it your desktop or save it online. From there, you can share it on the social sites of your choice, or do as us bloggers do and embed it in your blog posts.
This launch follows the release of Aviary’s Firefox plugin, Talon, which does essentially the same thing, but requires both Firefox and an install. Of course, by making it web-based, the screen capture feature is now available to anyone that wants it. As such, it also stands to introduce Aviary’s image editing tools to a much bigger audience by luring in users with a feature that lots of people need every day.
