What happened to the Instructable Photo Editor? Answered

When adding photos to an Instructable the photo has a "view/edit" link on the imported photo.  Clicking it used to take you to a photo editor to crop, adjust, color correct annotate, etc.  Now the link only lets you view the photo.

Has the photo editor gone away or is it located somewhere else.  It was so  nice to be able to edit photos via the Instructable website as needed.  

Thanks,

I think most people currently using photo editing applications such as PicsArt, Enlight Pixaloop, ... Instructable are gradually using fewer people.

There are many photo editing applications, true. However, I found that once a photo was uploaded into Instructables I ocassionally found that it needed to be improved or cropped and it was so simple to edit inside instructables instead of going back to the original photo, modify it, and then upload it again into Instructables. It was so convienient to do it WHITHIN Instructables. But alas that day is long past.

The Pixlr editor was removed from the editor back in February or March I think. I'm not sure entirely the reason behind this but I do know that it was sold (previously an Autodesk product) so that my have something to do with it. As for right now, all image editing needs to be done previous to uploading to your instructable. If you still like Pixlr, you can still use it here: https://pixlr.com/
