Aviary Screen Capture & Quick Launch (Talon)

Very comprehensive editing tool add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This has a lot of useful features for designers and bloggers.

* Full or partial screen capture of webpages and images via right click menu.

* You can even capture flash if you have FF3.1+, which is very useful if you are capturing screenshots of webapps or games.

* Options to save to your desktop, host it online at Aviary (requires free account), or edit it further in Aviary (no account required).

Because Aviary has 4 tools released so far, you can choose which tool you want to edit the image or screenshot in.

* Phoenix: Layer-based image editor (similar in nature to Photoshop). This is the default editor.

* Raven: Vector editor. You can use this to make Vector outlines of images.

* Toucan: Color pallette editor. You can use this to extract color swatches from images and web sites. Very useful for design inspiration!

* Peacock: Effects editor. You can use this to create really powerful filter effects. (Tip: Take the effort to spend time with this particular tool as it outshines some desktop applications in its power).

Talon also adds a method for quick launching any of the Aviary tools right from the FireFox drop down menu between Tools and Help.

Disclaimer: I am an employee of Aviary (but I use this add-on because I love it, not because I have to).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8).
