Digital creative tools provider Aviary introduced a version of its free photo editing SDK optimized for iOS and Android smartphones, enabling developers to integrate a series of effects, filtering and sharing tools to their mobile applications.
Available for download here, the Aviary SDK promises to streamline the application workflow, ensuring that users don't need to open another app to edit, save and share their images. Aviary features include auto-enhance, redeye removal, color and saturation adjustments, brightness and contrast controls, and cropping/flipping/rotation options--the app also boasts photo effects, text and drawing options, stickers and a meme generator. Developers can add all options or cherrypick the features they wish to add.
