Flickr using Aviary technology to power image editing on their platform
Flickr recently announced that they were ditching Picnik as their image editing technology partner.
Aviary has now announced that they are collaborating with Flickr to offer their image editing tech to all the users on the Flickr platform.
Picnik is of course owned by Google and is also being discontinued.
Aviary spoke about their deal with Yahoo:
We’re absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to share our passion for photos with the millions of users, with myriad interests. From diehard travel photographers to amateur hobbyists shooting candids of their loved ones, Aviary’s creative tools will provide a sleek, simple way to quickly fix pictures; after all, a faster, easier editing experience means that users have more time to spend exploring everything Flickr has to offer. Plus, since Aviary is 100% mobile friendly, you can edit your Flickr photos on your tablet too!
As we spend the next few weeks unrolling editing capabilities to the entirety of Flickr’s community, we’re paying extra attention to your thoughts and feedback. Please let us know what you think – your opinions will help shape the future of the Aviary editor.
