User Comments<br />Anonymous on 02 Nov 2009 at 06:21 <br />Phoenix image editor by Aviary is an easy simple to use software online! The fact that an online software such as this can operate fast and efficiently is remarkable. Pheonix has practically all the basic image manipulation tools as Adobe Photo shop, however Pheonix does lack the advance tools for the "finer" touches. Over all Pheonix is an easy accessible software which i would rate about a 7/10. <br />Anonymous on 02 Nov 2009 at 06:13 <br />I thought Phoenix aviary was very quick, but I also thought it was very basic since there were no really advanced tools present. Some things that i liked about the software were that it was very easy to use and easy to bring in photos and edit them. Some things i disliked was that it was hard to resize images. In all, i would rate Phoenix aviary a 7/10. <br />
