If you blinked you might have missed Yahoo’s tweet that the company acquired GhostBird Software. PhotoForge, PhotoForge2 and KitCam owners needn’t despair — the apps will continue to work on current iOS devices. GhostBird promises that PhotoForge2 and KitCam will, at some point in the future, be available for re-download via iCloud. However, the apps will not be updated for new iOS versions.

Yahoo hasn’t announced any specific plans for the apps, although a new PhotoForge Flickr group has been launched for mobile photographers to upload images post-processed with the app. As of this morning, the group had 63 members with a group pool of 478 images.

We’re not sure what Yahoo has in mind for these popular capture and editing apps, but we hope the GhostBird Software team is allowed to advance the software with the same attention to detail — and to serious photographers — they have shown in the past.
