What Flex Can Do to Your Photos

Posted by Charles | September 19, 2007 .

We’ve seen what a Flash photo site can do to your photo yesterday. Now let’s see what a Flex one can do. The answer is, a lot more.

fotoflexer logo The Flex photo startup site, Fotoflexer, is in the same business as Graphita, which is photo editing for fun. Fotofexer has much richer functions than Graphita and is developed using Flex (unless someone tells me different). One thing I like FtoFlexer the most is that it integrates with some of the most popular social network or media sites such as Facebook, myspace, photobucket (I use it), flickr, picasa and Yahoo. By integrating with those poplar sites, it’s actually makes itself stands out, as a focused photo editing (for fun) site. That avoid making people think it’s yet another social media site.

Feature-wise, they can do a lot more. One group of effects I like is Distort. You can pick a list of distorting shapes and apply them to the photo. Depends on where you apply them, the results could be very interesting and funny. Another function is quite interesting is the Webcam Capture. Imagine you can start a video conversion with a friend and capture the images with real time editing. Then send the image right back via the IM. Very cool.

I can see sites like Fotoflecer and Graphita are one way to commoditize photo editing software, while more and more features are put online. This definitely post a challenge to vendor such as Adobe, who is still dominating the photo edition software market. We’ll see how Adobe Photoshop online will defend the turf and fence off these young startups. For now, let’s play these new toys and have some funs.
