Lightroom Mobile 2.6 for iOS has just been released. The main change is for the iPhone version which now has a slightly different UI. It’s probably better, but it doesn’t greatly excite me.
But the best thing is that the iPhone app now allows you to update photos’ titles and captions. Finally, finally….
Obviously the phone is a fiddly way to enter lots of metadata, but for odd pictures it’s going to be very convenient. You just go to a picture, change the top menu to Info and you can then edit the title, caption and copyright. I try to use the voice recognition to do the captioning – it’s not very efficient, but it’s fun.
By the way, if you want a quick to Lightroom Mobile, check out Julieanne Kost’s new set of videos.
Lightroom Mobile 2.4 is available now and it has some exciting changes. You can now import raw files directly into LrMobile, and graduated and radial filter adjustments are now available.
Adobe have released a new “Dehaze” feature restricted to Lightroom CC. But far more interesting is what has been added to Lightroom Mobile 1.5. Video is probably the most surprising addition, but there’s also a Tone Curve and the Hue / Saturation / Luminance adjustment sliders. But best of all, Mobile now has Black and White adjustment sliders.
Adobe Comp is another newly-released iOS app that can access your Lightroom Mobile photos and is quite a clever iPad app for creating layouts shapes, photos and add text, then save the composition to the cloud. What’s quite startling is how it sends the composition from your iPad directly to your main computer, launching Photoshop, InDesign or Illustrator.
Adobe Slate is a new iPad app that makes it very easy to “tell a story”. But what makes it interesting for Lightroom users is how this service integrates with Lightroom Mobile. The first of many?
You can’t really do this. Mobile is not designed as a laptop replacement for travelling. But did you know dragging and dropping into a browser window uploads photos to Adobe’s cloud?
How can a friend or client review and comment on a shared LrWeb collection if they don’t have an Adobe account? It’s possible, by setting up a dummy account.
You can now copy adjustments from one image to another, there’s a new Segmented view in Collections, and Presentation Mode lets you hand your iPad over without worrying about someone changing your flags, ratings and adjustments.
Adobe always prioritised Lightroom Mobile’s iOS version – iOS is disproportionately dominant among Lightroom users – but they’ve always said Android was planned. It’s just been released for Android phones.
I’ve updated Syncomatic to facilitate an interesting new workflow involving LrMobile. Shoot Raw+JPEG in the field, import the JPEGs and adjust them in LrMobile, and then sync that work to the raw files with Syncomatic.
Adobe have now released Lightroom Mobile. What do I think of it?
