Announcing the new Picaboo Editor

It’s been a long time coming, but our new project editor based on the latest HTML5 and related internet standards is here! Our goal is to bring the same easy to use tools with as little change as possible. Why make the change, you ask? Well, it’s because Adobe is no longer supporting the underlying technology known as Flash. As of December 31st, 2020, Adobe will pull the plug. See Adobe’s Official Announcement to learn more about it:
Adobe announcement
Picaboo–and the industry as a whole–support this move because of the superior features, performance, and security of HTML5 and related technologies which are now the industry standard.
You may have already used our new editor without even realizing it since some of our newer products like Metal Prints, Crystals, Pillows, Blankets, Totes, etc., are only available on the new editor. Existing Flash-based projects will still be available for editing in the “old” editor as long as your browser supports Adobe® Flash. However, from this point forward, all new projects will be created with the new HTML5 based Editor.
