Adobe has announced plans to acquire Aviary, the maker of a photo editing 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. The company noted:

While ensuring no interruption to Aviary’s developer community, or their apps’ users, we plan to add additional components and services for developers to incorporate – such as the ability to save creations to Creative Cloud in Adobe file formats, access Photoshop technology, and connect creativity across devices using the Creative SDK.
