Adobe has acquired Fotiva, developer of digital-photography applications that manage, store, edit, and share digital photographs.

The acquisition's financial details were not revealed. Bryan Lamkin, senior vice president of Adobe’s Graphics Business Unit, explained that digital photography's increasing popularity has "created a need for image-management solutions that help people organize and share their collections of digital photos".

He added: "The acquisition of Fotiva will let us deliver strong image-management solutions to complement our industry-leading image-editing product line."

Michael Slater, co-founder of Fotiva, expressed delight at the union saying: "The Fotiva team is thrilled to join forces with Adobe, a leader in digital imaging. Through this acquisition, we now have the resources to deliver even more fully on our vision of making digital memories a fun and valued part of everyone’s life."

Founded in February 2000, Fotiva used to operate under the name of PhotoTablet.
