My friend from way back Daniel Sim just showed me something impressive that will shock the image editing market. Aviary is a collection of tools that are web based or as downloadable AIR applications.
Our tools all communicate and relate to each other. To illustrate an example: You can import a swatch from Toucan into Phoenix, while doing complex bitmap processing of a 3D object developed in Hummingbird. Finally, you can take your finished artwork and lay it out in Owl as the DVD artwork for a music CD you and your friends put together in Roc and Myna and offer it for sale in our marketplace, Hawk.

I recommend watching the video above showing them re-skin Hillary Clinton, more video examples can be shown found at http://a.viary.com/blog. To obtain use of the application, sign up to http://a.viary.com/'s early bird invitation.
They are developing applications to handle the majority of multimedia, from image editor, typography, music, 3d and video.
