Adobe has announced plans to acquire Aviary, the maker of a photo editing Software Development Kit (SDK) used by a number of third-party apps. Aviary has achieved over 100 million downloads during its history.
Aviary will continue to support its SDK as part of Adobe’s Creative SDK.
Aviary CEO Tobias Peggs explains in the announcement blog post that the Aviary SDK will continue to be enhanced as part of the Creative SDK. There should be no disruption for existing users of the SDK or apps. There may actually be some new features added courtesy of Adobe, like saving projects to Creative Cloud.
