Flash-based Online Image Editing Software Site Debuts
Posted on December 19, 2006An entry on Digg notes the launch of some Flash-based image editing software called Fauxto. Here is how Fauxto describes itself:
Fauxto, as far as we know, is the only full-featured image editor on the web. Our goal is free-range editing capability and a YouTube like usage model. You can edit, save to the server and distribute anywhere. Though it is most certainly in a beta stage of development, and we are still working out kinks and tweaking the system as a whole, we think you'll be happy with what you find.Another post lists some of the features which include image size, canvas size, layer adjustments, filters and movable marquees. You can see more features by trying to create a graphic using Fauxto. Fauxto does not have all the features that Photoshop has but it could be on its way there. There have been some other much-less sophisticated but still interesting graphics tools launching lately like PikiPimp, a fun online graphics editor that lets people add hats and beards to digital photographs. We may be starting to see a wave of online graphics tools that is similar to the recent wave of web-based word processing and spreadsheet tools.
There is no help system at present, but there will be shortly. Our hope is that going live now will allow you all to help us stress the system and provide input as we grow.
