AMD has announced a collaboration with software company Aviary to create an optimized version of its photo editing software for Windows 8 tablets and PCs. The Aviary software development kit (SDK) was modified to take advantage of unique properties of AMD APUs. The Aviary SDK offers a "library of photo editing effects and filters for the easy incorporation of the photo editor into applications." Corporate VP at AMD Manju Hegde said, “Aviary is becoming the standard in mobile and online photo editing with over 3 billion photos edited thus far,” and also added, “By bringing Aviary to Windows 8, it enables the next billion photos across an even broader range of devices. AMD is committed to supporting the future of industry-changing innovators like Aviary through investment by AMD Ventures and by enhancing user experiences on our award-winning APU platforms.”
