  1. Thanks for sharing this resource. I was previously using the Screengrab! add-on and then a separate program to edit or add effects, but Aviary is much more dynamic. I look forward to trying it out. It’s a bit like having a new toy.

    • I have screengrab but have ceased to use it since I tried Aviary. I can testify to how dynamic Aviary is and how much fun it is to play with. :)
