Aviary’s Photo Editor gets overhauled in 3.0 release

The Aviary Photo Editor app for Android has been retooled and updated in a spankin’ new 3.0 release. If you’re a photo fanatic or someone who likes to jazz up your pictures with simple edits, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better experience.

We’ve long been a fan of Aviary’s website and mobile apps so we’re only too pleased with the results of this new version. Things move much quicker and the tool set is nothing short of rich and robust features. Indeed, the standard app is likely to satisfy your basic needs, but we recommend spending a buck or two on some of the add-on packs!

Key updates and notes in the 3.0 release:

  • Sleek, Streamlined Interface – First and foremost, the user interface has been completely redesigned, and it’s beautiful. The main editor toolbar now scrolls instead of paging, making it way easier to find all of the Editor’s great tools. We’ve also gone to great lengths to highlight the most important part of the Editor – your photos – by switching over to a dark theme and reducing padding.

  • Improved Enhance Tool – Enhance, has been…enhanced! This incredibly popular tool now has three great settings: Hi-Def, Illuminate, and Color Fix. Hi-Def smartly sharpens, adjusts contrast, and brings out the best parts of your photo, while Illuminate makes poor-lit photos look like they were taken in great lighting. Color Fix (previously called Balance) does intelligent color correction and works beautifully.

  • Beautiful Filters – One of the awesome things about our Android Showcase App is that you can customize your version of the app by installing content packs. You can add incredible Filter packs for even greater flexibility and additional editing options. With today’s new Android release, we’re introducing the Woodland Effects Pack, perfect for outdoor photos. This pack has been a big hit on iOS, and we think our Android users are also going to love using it this summer.

  • Super Fun Stickers – Users love taking advantage of our stickers to add fun, creativity, and surrealism to their photos. Like Filters, users can install new sticker packs through our in-app store. Packs like Space, Mustaches, and Wigs have been incredibly popular, and we’re adding new stickers all the time.

  • Improved Focus Tool – Focus helps draw attention to the subject of a photo by defining the photo’s focal point and blurring out background objects. We’ve modified the User Experience so it’s easier to use, and more fun to play with. We bet a lot of you are going to be making miniature-looking photos these next few days ;)

  • Color Splash – Our awesome ‘Splash’ tool strips out color from your photo, then lets you paint it back in a super fun way. The Smart Color brush lets intelligently limit splash to the color of your choice, while the Free Color brush lets you just go nuts and color in whatever you want. It’s one of our favorite tools, so check it out.

  • Reduced Bundle Size – We’ve reduced the file size of the editor by over 10%, which means it’s quicker to download and takes up less, precious space on your device.
