Adobe Beefs Up Lightroom Apps

...

Adobe this week pushed two major updates to its mobile photo-editing software.

Lightroom 2.4 for iOS and Lightroom 2.1 for Android are now available to download for free. On-the-go digital photographers editing on an iPhone or iPad can tap into a new Raw technology preview, which allows users to import, edit, and share Raw photos in the palm of their hand.

The update promises all the benefits of Raw—including the ability to edit an uncompressed file (which is three to fives times larger than JPEGs)—as well as auto-syncing with Lightroom on desktop or Web without losing edits, star ratings, or flags.

"Our goal with Lightroom for mobile is to make it an indispensable part of your photography workflow, providing the tools that you're familiar with and the quality you expect in a product that can be with you, no matter when inspiration strikes," Josh Haftel, Adobe senior product manager, wrote in a blog post.

Apple iOS users also gain the ability to perform local adjustments with linear and radial selections—two of the most-requested features after Raw support—that let you add or modify photos and draw attention to certain parts of an image.

These new iOS tools are available only to Creative Cloud subscribers and trial members.

Lightroom for Android 2.1, meanwhile, now comes with a Pro mode that lets photographers manually control the camera's shutter speed, ISO, white balance, and focus in a new interface. The app also introduces a Lightroom Camera widget for instant access to the shooter, as well as improved ability to export full-resolution files.
