Aviary’s Talon: An Awesome Firefox Plug-in For Easy Image Editing

Aviary, the company behind a suite of collaborative web-based image editing software, has released a Firefox plug-in that’s a must-have. Create an account at Aviary, download the plug-in called Talon, and within minutes you’ll be joyfully clipping full and partial screenshots into the very full-featured Aviary web editor. It’s so easy, but at the same time so full-featured, that it’s a real pleasure to use.

We learned about the un-publicized and experimental plug-in from Brad Linder at Download Squad this afternoon. Check out the screenshots below, then get on over to the Firefox plug-ins directory and give it a try for yourself.

Above, is one set of options that pop-up, on right click, with Talon installed. Below, is a screenshot of the entirely web based editing interface after a screen grab. It would be nice if this plug-in had a Skitch-like ability to upload to Flickr easily, but that’s not the point of Aviary. It is significantly faster to use Skitch locally, but the markup options are woefully meager. They are different products and Skitch is Mac only. Anyone using Firefox can use Talon.

I’ve been looking for a way to get Aviary into my routine and this plug-in makes that very easy.
