The Aviary API provides seamless, in-app editing tools for web and mobile. To learn more about our product and what it can do for you, check out our developer site.
Minus is a wonderfully simple, drag-and-drop file uploader that enables users to publish, share, and manage their files in the cloud. Not only does Minus offer unlimited file transfers and downloads, as well as the ability to explore and discover other shared content, but the entire service is free.
Here’s where Aviary comes in: if you upload your photos to Minus for storage — and let’s be honest, storing photo albums on your computer reduces its speed to a mere crawl — you now have the additional ability to edit them, with Aviary’s simple editor, on their site. True to the simplicity and ease of Minus’ interface, our editor is as easy as a one-click fix.
To see the combined forces of Minus and Aviary in action, go to Minus.com, drag a photo into the box conveniently titled “Drag & Drop Files Here To Upload”, and watch as it is automatically uploaded into your Minus account.
After your photo has been uploaded, click on the “Edit Image” button in the bottom right hand corner.
Et voilà! Aviary’s web editor pops up in-line, which means you can fix your photos without ever having to leave Minus. Sweet and simple, right?
You may notice that the editor looks a little different from our original design. We’ve worked together with Minus to produce a customized skin, and it serves as an excellent example of how our editor can be customized to fit your site! If you’d like to look into customizing our Web API for your own site, give us a hoot!
At Aviary, we appreciate intuitive, easy-to-use interfaces. In many cases, the easier it is to use, the more challenging it is to design and build, which is testimony to the fact that we think Minus is one of the best examples of file sharing out there. Our partnership with Minus — bringing together two simple, yet powerful, services in seamless fashion — reflects our desire to keep your internet experience as effortless and straightforward as possible.
We’re very proud to call Minus a partner, and don’t forget to check out their wonderful, free file sharing service!
