Adobe said Monday that it is buying Aviary, a privately held maker of tools that help mobile developers build photography capabilities into their apps.

The company said the purchase will help as Adobe looks to integrate its creative tools into more apps via a forthcoming Creative Cloud developer kit.

“This is great news for developers because thousands of mobile apps will have the opportunity to become compatible with industry-defining desktop tools like Photoshop CC, as well as new Creative Cloud services,” Adobe VP Scott Belsky said in a statement.

Adobe did not disclose financial terms of the deal. Aviary had backing from, among others, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
