Powerful photo editor Aviary has just received its first update since being acquired by Adobe in September. And version 3.5.0 brings a number of welcome new features and improvements.
The biggest addition only requires that you sign-in to the app with a free Adobe ID. Once you do that, for the month of November, all of Aviary’s effects, stickers, frames, and overlays are free to download. Any downloads will stay in Creative Cloud and can be used forever.
Along with offering full support for iOS 8, the app is now optimized for the higher resolution screens of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Here are the rest of the improvements, according to an Aviary blog post:
● Overlays – Place stencils over your photos to make unique and creative images, perfect for sharing on social media. We’ll be adding new overlay packs all of the time and like effects, stickers, and frames, you have the freedom to make this tool all your own.
● Vignettes – One of our big user requests, Aviary’s vignette tool makes it super simple to place a dark or light vignette over your photo, with support for custom size, shape, and intensity.
● New photo adjustments including Highlights, Shadows, Tint, and Fade – These new adjustments (or “slider tools” as we call them here at the Aviary HQ) give you more creative freedom when it comes to manipulating your photos to achieve that perfect look.
● Draw Brush – On iOS, our user-favorite Draw tool now comes with re-built brush technology that makes drawing on photos feel more natural and lifelike.
A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Aviary can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. There are a number of in-app purchases available.
