Adobe Lightroom for iOS 10 Adds Raw Support

...

Adobe just announced a new incentive for photographers to buy an iPhone 7: an update to Lightroom for mobile makes it one of the first apps to capture Raw photos on iOS 10.

DNG—a Raw photography format created by Adobe—allows mobile shutterbugs to change white balance, recover blown-out highlights, access the full range of color information, and edit an uncompressed file (typically three to five times larger than JPEGs). The technology, according to the company, promises the "highest possible image quality" and the "greatest amount of editing flexibility and control."

"Adobe DNG…offers the freedom to create amazing-looking images, and the ability to fix photos that are taken in less-than-ideal conditions," Bryan Lamkin, executive vice president and general manager of Adobe Digital Media, said in a statement.

To capture in Raw, users will need a device running iOS 10 that has a 12-megapixel sensor, like the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPad Pro 9.7, or Apple's next-gen smartphones, which arrive Friday. Available now to download in the iTunes App Store, the Lightroom update also adds support for the new wide-gamut P3 color space found in the iPad Pro 9.7 and upcoming iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

Over the summer, Adobe pushed two major updates to its mobile photo-editing software: Lightroom 2.4 for iOS and Lightroom 2.1 for Android.

A new Raw technology preview means iPhone and iPad owners can import, edit, and share uncompressed images. Users also gained the ability to perform local adjustments with linear and radial selections to better modify photos.

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