      Since the software is run using Adobe Flash and Adobe plans to close down Flash by December 2020, can users depend on the availability of the program afterward? Do developers have a plan to keep Ribbet running without Flash?

      Hi Mel,

      Thanks for reaching out to us!

      Absolutely you can rely on Ribbet well into the future.

      We have a desktop program version for Windows and Mac that runs without Flash and can be downloaded here.

      We are also working very hard on a new, HTML5 browser-based version of Ribbet which will also include a bunch of new functionality. If you’re interested in becoming an early, beta tester, you can find more details here.

      Or, let us know if you have any other questions!

      Regards – The Ribbet Team

      I have downloaded the desktop version. It seems to drag and I have issues with it “not responding” or just plain being super slow. Then I am left having to restart it all over again. When I use the flash version it seems to work faster. I am hoping these are just hiccups within the desktop version and that this is not going to be the norm. I also have encountered it not letting me download photos as well and it forces me to use the old download where you can only do one photo at a time. I use Ribbet to edit several photos in a sitting and loading them one at a time is very tedious. I have found myself just going back to the old version because it just seems to be more reliable and quicker. I hope with me saying something that it is looked at and addressed. I do like this application to edit my photos in and I hope things are just in the trial period to see what will need tweeked before the new year .
      Thank you,
      Kim P.

        Hi Kim,

        Thanks so much for your feedback!

        Regarding only being able to upload one photo at a time, if you make sure that you’re signed into your Ribbet account from within the program version (by clicking the Profile icon up the top right of the program and then choosing Sign In) it should then allow you to upload multiple (uploading one photo at a time is a limitation of guest accounts).

        With the program hanging, generally we aren’t seeing this issue. However we are releasing a new version of the program within the next week or so, which updates its core libraries to the latest versions. This will hopefully resolve your issue. The program will auto-update when the update becomes available (just follow the prompts when starting up Ribbet).

        In the meantime, please let us know if you have any other feedback or questions.

        Regards – The Ribbet Team
