It's true to say that photography doesn't stop when you hit the shutter. While composition and placement are hugely important parts of the activity of creating great photos, many people spend far more time processing their snap than they ever do behind the camera.
It's a necessary part of the process, and the best way to make your idea for the photo come completely to life. In recent years, photo editing has become an increasingly accessible and powerful part of the mobile photography sphere as well, with the native apps on most handsets going from strength to strength.
And if you wanted something a bit more powerful, the apps stores were teaming with offerings - and few were better than Aviary. Now, the company behind Aviary has started a new partnership, as its been bought up by creative giants Adobe.
The move will see Aviary continue to create and support its mobile products but also extend its reach to mix in some of Adobe's creations, like the ability to save your work to creative cloud and even being able to take your photo and plug it straight into a desktop Adobe product.
Aviary seems over the moon at the annoucement, which will see them interacting with millions of new customers and Adobe will also be making inroads into your handset soon enough.
Right now you can get Aviary on Android or iOS for free.
