Adobe releases Lightroom for iPad
Adobe released a mobile version of their Lightroom photo-editing suite today, specifically for the iPad.
Adobe Lightroom Mobile is included as part of the company’s Creative Cloud subscription suite, for which prices start at about $9.99 a month. Like the desktop version, Lightroom Mobile allows for professional quality photo-editing while you’re on the move, with realtime sync through Creative Cloud so that your Lightroom collections are available throughout all your devices. If you’ve used Lightroom before, you’ll be familiar with the feature set here. There’s RAW photo editing support, and you can import images from your device or via the Lightroom Collections, etc. You’ll need Adobe Lightroom 5.4 on your desktop though, to enable connectivity with the iPad app.
Note: Adobe Lightroom mobile requires Adobe Lightroom 5 and any of the following plans:
•Creative Cloud complete plan
•Creative Cloud – Photoshop Photography Program
•Creative Cloud Student and Teacher Edition
•Creative Cloud for teams complete plan
Edit and organize images anywhere, anytime on your iPad. Enhance everything from smartphone photos to raw images from DLSRs using powerful and familiar tools. Automatically sync all your mobile edits with Lightroom 5 on your desktop. Easily share all your photos to social media sites. With Adobe Lightroom mobile, your photography is going places.
• Edit raw files from DSLR cameras using Smart Previews
• Edit images from your iPad camera roll
• Enhance images using familiar Lightroom tools and presets
• Import photos from your iPad camera roll
• Quickly Flag and Reject photos
Sync and Share
• Automatically syncs photo edits, metadata, and collection info with Lightroom 5 on your desktop and all your Lightroom-enabled devices
• Easily share photos online via social networks
Great to see the app make it’s way to mobile, but it does miss some important lightroom features. For example, there’s no metadata editing, no colour labels, or custom presets right now.
Available for iPad 2 or newer, running iOS 7 or newer. Apparently an iPhone version is “coming soon” as well.
