Lightroom for iOS 2.4
Version 2.4 sees two major improvements – a raw technology preview and the addition of local adjustment tools. In addition to these major improvements, Adobe has also added the ability to use keyboard shortcuts with physical keyboards connected to iPads, the ability to add copyright to all imported photos, functionality to turn on lens profiles (if your camera and lens combination are supported), as well as the usual bug fixes and improvements.
Lightroom mobile 2.4 is available immediately for iPhone and iPad from the iOS App Store for free. Both of these improvements are available only for members with an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription or if you start a free Creative Cloud trial.
Lightroom for Android 2.1
The Android team for Lightroom doubled-down on the unique end-to-end DNG capture experience first announced in Lightroom for Android 2.0 and created a brand new capture experience. Adobe’s goal was to create the best mobile photography experience available, and with the amazing quality possible on Android devices, especially thanks to DNG raw capture, to provide all of the controls and functionality needed.
The built-in camera has a new Pro mode that lets users control the shutter speed, ISO, white balance, and focus all manually, in a brand new interface. The camera can be accessed directly using the new Lightroom Camera widget. This new widget will launch the Lightroom camera directly, making it faster for users to get in and start taking pictures.
The app’s ability to export full-resolution files has also been improved – if the files are available somewhere within the Lightroom ecosystem, Lightroom for Android will now download the full resolution version and enable users to export them.
Lightroom for Android 2.1 is now available for free download.
