  • Creating a free account with Aviary allows you to save your images, which is always a good thing.
  • To use a photo on your website (or in your publication), export the photo as a .jpg. Keep an eye on the file size and dimensions, though. When exporting your photo in Aviary, you may need to reduce the jpg’s quality in order to optimize the image for the web. Optimized images are web-friendly images.
