The new Browser-Based Ribbet is now LIVE in Beta! 🥳🚀 Try it at here on a desktop computer.
Something to keep in mind as you navigate the new version is there are still features we are working on fixing and improving, and effects and tools that we are in the process of adding.
If you do get stuck and can’t finish your editing, you can continue to use the version of Ribbet that you’re used to by downloading the desktop application which works just as it always has.
If you have any feedback, notice anything strange or have anything to say about the new Ribbet editor, we welcome and appreciate all of your comments and invite you to post them right here, in the comments section below, or on our Facebook Group RibbetEd.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to hearing your thoughts!
If your main internet browser is Chrome or Firefox, then by now you probably know that support for Flash will be removed completely at the end of this year.
Ribbet for web has run on Flash for a long time and an increasing number of people in our community are asking us what will happen to it after that.
Well… we have an answer for you and we’re actually very excited to share it. 😄🥳
A new version of Ribbet that isn’t built on Flash has been under development for a while and it will be released in BETA on December 21st.
This new Ribbet on web will mean several exciting things for our users, most prominently:
Better performance on the web 👉 Edit faster and have more fun with Ribbet in your browser.
A better user interface 👉 We took this opportunity to do a bit of editing of our own and freshen up Ribbet’s web interface. We’re confident you’ll find it intuitive and easy to use and look forward to letting you give it a spin soon!
Better connection between platforms. As you probably already know, Ribbet is already available on web, mobile and tablet. But not long after the new version goes live, new mobile apps will be released so that your projects will be connected in the cloud. This means that, for example, it will be possible to start an edit on the web and finish it from your mobile device.
No plugins needed or software to install. Because it currently runs on Flash, right now users trying to open Ribbet in their browser have to take the extra steps to enable Flash first. Once the new version is live, this will be a thing of the past and the web editor will start up immediately.
New collage, design and text templates – and new fonts! The new Ribbet lets you design faster with all-new ready-made collage and design layouts, a ton of new fonts available across all platforms, and text layouts combining fonts that work well together so you can be guided to create pro-looking collages and designs rapidly.
Expanded toolkit. We’re packing the new editor with niceties like drop shadow, border and background on text, the ability to edit collage cells (and text for that matter) while still in collage-building mode including applying effects and basic adjustments. We’re adding labels to organize your uploads and projects, connecting you with stock photography and icon search engines to add free images and icons to your photos in a single click, and much more.
…so there you have it.
If you weren’t sure whether Ribbet will still be around after Flash is gone, now you have the answer.
We’re hard at work getting the new Ribbet ready for release and we really can’t wait to let you give it a go!
P.S. Ribbet’s desktop version is available right now for Windows and Mac (at ribbet.com/download), and doesn’t require Flash. Once installed you can access Ribbet from the icon that will be added to your Window’s desktop or Mac icon dock and sign in with your existing Ribbet account. Our desktop version is identical to our current Flash version but will work indefinitely into the future.

The latest version of Ribbet for iOS has just been released and now supports applying your favorite effects and filters selectively.
How does it work?
This feature lets you choose an area of your photo where you’d like an effect to be applied. Simply open an effect, tap the Eraser icon and paint the area you want to erase.
This lets you adjust contrast, exposure, color and sharpness on selective areas of your photo. You can color splash one part of a photo, leaving the rest black and white, or apply any other Ribbet filter or tool selectively.
How do you remove backgrounds from images?
1. Start with a Blank Canvas or a new background image
2. Add your photo as a Watermark
3. Use the Erase tool to remove the background.
We’re in love with this new capability and can’t wait for you to check it out! Selective effects will be available on Android soon.
We’re working on a brand new product! Set to be Ribbet’s flagship software, we’re building a new, browser-based photo editor, collage maker and design tool. There’s a lot to be excited about, but we can’t share many details just yet. But, if you’d like to become an early, beta tester, now is your chance. You can sign up here.
Ribbet for iOS and Android has been featured as “App Of The Day” on Download Astro, a site that chooses one new app each day to share with their 750,000 users. Thanks to Pavle and the awesome team there – we highly recommend Download Astro for discovering new apps.
