Aviary, an online image editor

I found a great image editor / paint program. It features some really cool effects and a way of creating art that I’ve never seen before – in a visual art package anyway. It uses generators and effects that can be chained together like audio components use cables to route signals. It’s free, but it will stick a watermark on your images unless you upgrade to the 24.99 / year Pro account.

A new media player that incorporates a great idea. Songbird will not only fill the shoes of WMP and Winamp, but also allows you to play websites. It has a built in web browser, so if you were to visit, say reloda, it gives you a list of media files that it finds on the page and allows you to play them as if they were stored locally on your hard drive. If you want to keep a track, you just drag it from the list into your library. It’s at a very early stage (v0.2), but it’s great now so it can only get better. Baggy’s software pick of the year.
