Blingee is an image hosting and editing website. The site offers web-based tools for adding special effects to images, such as animation and sparkles. In August 2015, Blingee announced they were closing on August 25th.
Dear Blingee Fans,
After more than 130 million Blingees made, the time has come for Blingee to ride off into the sunset. It's been an amazing 9 years, from the simple idea of making it easier to create animated images, to the explosion of creativity we have seen, and the wonderful and lively community that grew around it. Thank you for your passionate support over the years.
Before we close the site down, we wanted to give you the opportunity to save your Blingees to your computer. Here's how:
1. From your account Dasboard, select 'My Blingees' from the navigation column on the right side
2. Choose the "< >" icon on the Share line for the Blingee you wish to download
3. Click on 'Get Code or Download' for the size you want
4. Click the "Download this Blingee" button on the right side of the page
5. Repeat for the Blingees and sizes you wish to keep
The site will be turned off on August 25th, so please grab your Blingees before then.
If you have any questions or would like to share some thoughts, please join this forum thread
Thanks again for being one of the best communities on the internet! We wish you all the very best!
