Hi,

When I try to reduce the size of a phototo use on my website with the new photo platform, the photo becomes distorted and can not be used. The color is stripped out of if and the contrast is way out of balance.

Please let me know what i am doing. I never had this problem with the former photo editor program.

Thanks....

Hello Vinnie,

This is a reported issue for some users with Aviary and identical issues as to that you have described. Your best solution is to do all the processing with a third party image manipulation program before uploading the image to your File Manager.

Examples of tried editors include; Photoshop both the purchased version and the online version. GIMP which is a free download program as powerful as Photoshop. , Pixlr which is an online facility and a number of others.

OK...any chance they will get Aviary working?....The old prorgram, pehraps not the best or most sophisticated, did work and was quite functional for this process.

Thanks for the update.

Yes. Aviary or similar will be working according to specs. I think they are currently working on it.

The reason why picnik was dropped is that picnik pulled out of the open market and were no longer able to be used for this purpose. Aviary is the replacement because of this. It's probably the integration with Aviary and Yola because Flickr also use Aviary (don't know if it's the same installation) but it is the same brand. I don't use Flickr enough to know if the problem has affected users on that platform.

Hello Vincent,

A really great program that you may want to use is Picmonkey.com.

I feel this is quite reminiscent of Picnik and believe you will find success with this image editing program.
