Aviary has updated its add-ons for both Firefox and Chrome. Just in time for Firefox 4, the Aviary extension got a big update, not only adding support for the new browser, but also a brand new feature, the ability to edit images on the same page they're on. A day later, the Chrome extension got the same update.
"Were you psyched about our Firefox extension update yesterday, but simultaneously depressed because your preferred browser is Chrome?," Aviary writes
"Luckily, just in time for the weekend (I know, FridayFriday, it's stuck in my head too), Aviary's here for you. Our updated Chrome extension is available as of today," it announced.
extension enables you to launch any of the Aviary editors as well as capture the webpage currently viewed, as always. But it also adds a new feature, the Simple Image Editor, codenamed Feather.
"Right-click on any image on the web (or click the tiny 'a' that appears in the bottom left corner of large images), and select 'Edit Image in Aviary.' This will launch the lightbox of Feather right on the spot!," Aviary explained.
The Feather editor is rather basic, but it has all of the tools you may need in this context. Transformation tools such as Rotate or Resize are available, you can also adjust the brightness, the saturation, the contrast, or sharpen an image. Finally, you can doodle on top of the image, add text and even add stickers.
After you're done, you can save the image on your desktop or in the Aviary cloud. Of course, if you need a more powerful tool, you can open the image in one of Aviary's other editors. You can even make any of the default editor, when you click on the Edit in Aviary menu entry.
