Adobe brings mobility option to Lightroom users

Adobe brings mobility option to Lightroom users 

Adobe has moved to correct this – the company announced today that it is extending its Lightroom capabilities to Apple’s iPad devices, in order to streamline the photo editing and synchronization experience across desktops and mobile devices.

“Lightroom has matured quite a bit, and it’s become as important as the camera and lens,” said Tom Hogarty, group product manager, Lightroom, Adobe. “But now the photography landscape is shifting again: digital photography has been impacted by mobile devices.”

With the new iOS app, users can sync their mobile edits and collection changes back to their Lightroom catalogue on their desktops. They can also automatically import images captured on their iPads back to their main Lightroom catalogues using the sync feature.

Photos can be edited even when the iPad is offline for “a more portable experience” and synced photos can be viewed from any web browser.

“We’re introducing, which allows users to sign in with their ID for the service and see all the images that have been put on the mobile device,” said Hogarty. “This way, the user can see the images even when they don’t have access to their phones.”

Users can also share photos and albums with their family and friends directly from the website by making them public.

Lightroom mobile is available as part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photoshop Photography Program. Users can access it for $9.99 per month, along with Lightroom 5 and Photoshop Creative Cloud on the desktop.

Adobe has announced that a version for the iPhone will be released later this year. It also has plans for an Android version, but as of yet, no release date has been confirmed.
