Macromedia Exchange was a set of online marketplaces for extensions that worked with Macromedia's software applications.


Macromedia Exchange was launched in April 2000 to supply object-based extensions to users of Macromedia Dreamweaver 3. Downloads were controlled through Macromedia Extension Manager which later added support for other Macromedia applications.[1]

Macromedia was acquired by Adobe Systems in December 2005.[2] The marketplace was renamed Adobe Exchange and was expanded to support Adobe's Creative Suite.[3]
