It feels a little odd to see that Autodesk are actually selling something for a change. Normally they seem to be acquiring companies and software like Monopoly property. And PIXLR isn’t really much of an exception to that. Autodesk acquired the popular photo editing app in 2011. Now, six years later, they’re selling it on to stock photography provider, 123RF.
It’s not surprising that a stock image company has started to take an interest in editing apps. After all, Adobe also runs a stock agency, and they’re kind of the king of editing apps. With Adobe Stock integrating itself into recent Adobe applications, the stock world’s competitors need to step up.
