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.
