The Crazy Suburban Mom: Paris is beautiful, Aviary is not. #FlickrFail

Paris is beautiful, Aviary is not. #FlickrFail

Still going through the Paris pictures and what an amazing place.  Still deleting, editing, and printing; trying to get the best possible shots although it's taking some time; there are a lot.  I don't think it's possible to get a bad shot in Paris.  

I'm printing them up using Snapfish via Flickr and the prints are terrific.  Never tried them before this but the quality is great.  I am however, underwhelmed - no, underwhelmed is not a strong enough word - I am baffled, bewildered and hornswoggled by Flickrs decision to go from Picnik to Aviary.  

I had issues with Picnik but there are free iPhone apps that do a better job then what they have now.  In their help forums they explain: "The new editor isn't trying to be a Photoshop, Picnik, or a tool that has everything and the kitchen sink. "

Well, then they succeeded.  It's not Photoshop, Picnik, or a sink but it's a tool... And not in a good way.  

FYI - I have Photoshop but I like online editing when I don't need an elephant gun.  Trying to use Aviary is like trying to mow your lawn with a half a tweezer. 

And now on to the pictures I got to edit before they rolled-out "the shiny new edit tool".  That's what they call it.   I call it #FlickrFail
