According to the official blog, Fauxto, the online photo editor that I covered a while back and was built with Adobe's Flex 2, has been quietly pumping out features and has now added a social aspect to the application. Fauxto will allow you to share photos you've created and store them directly on the site. The new version also includes a way to browse photos from other users. I've got a photo gallery set up for some of the new features and the interface.
The full list of features is on the blog post, but some of the most notable are:
- Capture web cam images
- Save for web in jpeg/png format
- Copy paste selections now works across images
- Improved text editing
- Maximum image size increased to 1250 x 1250
- Improved interface
When news broke that Adobe was going to work on an online version of Photoshop, I really felt bad for Fauxto. They've put in a tremendous amount of work into the product, and in my opinion, it's the best web based photoshop clone out there. I'm glad to see they were undaunted by the news and have continued to push the envelope. Frankly, I think buying these guys would be a great play for someone looking to get into the online editing space. Unless it's Adobe (which it should be), you won't have the brand recognition of Photoshop, but the product is top notch and will only get better.
