On April 8, 2014, Adobe announced the availability of Lightroom mobile, a companion app to Lightroom desktop software, available through Adobe Creative Cloud. These new mobile capabilities bring Lightroom tools to the iPad, delivering photography essentials—such as non-destructive processing of files—and utilizing new Smart Preview technologies to free professional class photo editing.
This tool allows you to sync edits, metadata and collection changes back to the Lightroom catalogue on a Mac or Windows computer and automatically import images captured on an iPad and sync back to the Lightroom catalogue on your desktop. Users can work on images even when the iPad is offline. It is possible to sync photos between Lightroom 5 and the mobile app, and these photos can be viewed on any web browser. “With the launch of Lightroom mobile, we’ve unlocked professional-class photographic workflows from the desktop,” said Umang Bedi, Managing Director, South Asia, Adobe System. “Lightroom and Photoshop redefined digital photography on the desktop and now, thanks to Adobe, photographers can perfect images, wherever they are and, via Creative Cloud, seamlessly synchronize them back to their desktop catalogue.” “Adobe Lightroom mobile transforms the way I am able to work with my photographs because now I can review and process photos when I’m comfortable and creative, and not just when I’m at my computer,” said Jeff Carlson, educator and author of The iPad for Photographers and Adobe Lightroom mobile: Your Lightroom on the Go. “It also works as a malleable photo portfolio on my iPad. As I add or remove images from a collection in Lightroom mobile or on the computer, the changes stay synchronized. When I need to show my work, those photos are already set up to be viewed.”
Lightroom mobile is available as part of Adobe Creative Cloud Photoshop Photography Program for Rs. 499 per month. Any member of Creative Cloud complete plan or Photoshop Photography Program automatically will receive access to Adobe Lightroom mobile. Lightroom mobile is immediately available for iPad 2 or later models running iOS 7, from the Apple App Store and requires Lightroom 5.4 for Mac or Windows.
