You’re probably thinking that this site is going to be all about birds. Well in a way you’re right. Aviary is an image editing suite where each application is named after a bird.
You have to register to use the applications. The process is quick and easy, just click the yellow Sign Up button in the top right corner of the page. This will take you the form you need to fill out with a username, e-mail address, create a password, and then confirm you are human. You’ll be instantly logged in and good to go. So where will you start?
Toucan – this application lets you create color palettes that you can use for any of the other applications. It will even help you choose colors that are pleasing to the eye.
Raven – this is their vector editor where you can draw freehand, or use premade template shapes to draw with.
Phoenix – here you can edit your images, similar to Photoshop, and make them all they can be.
Peacock – this is where you can apply filters to anything that you’ve created that will change it or enhance it. Each filter interacts with the filter before it so you can create layers of effects on your image.
Why spend a ton of money on image editing software when you can register at Aviary and do it all for free?
