Aviary is a photo-editing platform for iOS, Android, and the web (web application). Aviary powers numerous mobile applications, including its self-titled iOS and Android apps. It contains a large collection of easy-to-use editing tools such as custom photo filters, frames, graphics, and overlays. The Aviary platform is also a free SDK that provides developers with a customizable photo editor that can be embedded into apps on iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, and the web.

The company was founded in 2007 with the goal of providing professional-quality photo-editing tools to the general public. Aviary has since received millions of dollars in funding from investors such as Spark Capital and Bezos Expeditions.[3][4]

On September 22, 2014, Aviary was acquired by Adobe Systems.[5] Later, on November 13, 2014, Aviary (now part of Adobe) released a large update to the mobile application. The update included integration into Adobe's Creative Cloud and redesigned brush technology.


The scope of the tools has drawn comparisons to the Adobe Creative Suite. Aviary Suite was closed[6] on September 15, 2012.
