Aviary Tumblr

For those of you who don't feel like Aviary takes up *quite* enough of your time, we wanted to officially announce the existence of our tumblr.

If you're not familiar with tumblr, it's best described as a super-simple social blogging service. People tend to use it to post very short, funny, trending photos and news updates which can be quickly scanned through in tumblr's infinite dashboard interface and then liked or reblogged as desired. It's a great way to get a snapshot of the internet at any given moment.

As you may have noticed, we love the internet... so we've had a tumblr for quite a while. (You might remember it from this post, where we announced an integration enabling Aviary users to publish creations directly to their tumblrs.) But we recently overhauled the whole thing with a new theme and a new purpose: to inspire others with the things that inspire us.

We try to feature creative things from tumblr, art blogs we like, random internet memes of the day, and of course Aviary. Every day, we showcase one of our favorite new Aviary creations, so keep an eye out for one of yours! The creations we like the best are the ones which illustrate the potential of Aviary, and the variety of cool things people can do here.

If you're in the mood for inspiration, feel free to follow us on tumblr, visit our tumblog daily, or even submit your own favorite stuff from the internet.

Edit Tumblr Photos


In fact, we love Tumblr so much, we decided to create a better way of importing, editing, and publishing Tumblr photos using Aviary

1) Click 'Import' in the File menu in Aviary
2) Click on the 'Tumblr' tab in the import pane
3) Enter your Tumblr username
4) Browse your Tumblr photos
5) Import your photos

Once you've finished playing with your imported photo and saving it, you'll see the Share Menu which will let you publish your photo on Tumblr by clicking the Tumblr icon

Publish your awesome new photo to Tumblr

Eventually we hope to build some tighter integration so reblog links remain intact, but for now this method will suffice.

If there are any other features you think we should be working on, don't hesitate to let us know. You can reach us at Support@aviary.com.

So how much better are the photos on your Tumblr now?!]]
