Aviary Early Bird Invitations
If you haven't heard about Aviary:
"Aviary is a suite of rich internet applications geared for artists of all genres. From image editing to typography to music to 3D to video, we have a tool for everything. At Worth1000, we are creating a complex ecosystem for artists and providing the world with free, capable collaborative tools and an approach to collaboration and rights management that will turn the marketplace for online art on its head."
I signed up for an "early bird" invitation months ago and last week, I finally received my invitation email. I've been playing around with Phoenix and Peacock and am very impressed with the quality of the tools.
The tools are definitely designed more for the "advanced hobbyist creators", however if you're familiar with Photoshop, Phoenix should look very familiar. [screenshot]
If you are interested in "beta testing" Aviary, I have 4 early bird invites remaining. I will send them to the first 4 people who request one.
