Kool Tools: Adobe Lightroom Mobile for the iPad
Adobe's Lightroom mobile, a companion app to Lightroom desktop software (only available as part of Adobe Creative Cloud) has brought Lightroom tools to the iPad.
It delivers photography essentials – such as non-destructive processing of files – and utilization of new Smart Preview technologies to the Apple tablet. Lightroom mobile is built on a synchronization architecture, designed specifically for photos, and provides the most efficient way to manage and edit images across desktops, mobile devices and the Web.
With Lightroom mobile, iPad users can:
° Sync mobile edits, metadata and collection changes back to the Lightroom catalog on a Mac or Windows computer;
° Automatically import images captured on an iPad and sync back to a Lightroom catalog on the desktop;
° Work on images, even when your iPad is offline, for a truly portable experience;
° Sync photos between Lightroom 5 and Lightroom mobile; synced photos can also be viewed from any Web browser.
The Photoshop Photography Program (US$9.99 per month) includes Lightroom 5, Photoshop CC, Lightroom mobile and a public portfolio site through Behance. Any members of Creative Cloud complete plan or Photoshop Photography Program automatically receive access to Adobe Lightroom mobile. Lightroom mobile is immediately available for iPad 2 or later running iOS 7, from the Apple App Store and requires Lightroom 5.4 for Mac or Windows. Go to www.adobe.com/go/lrmobile for more info.
