I’m excited to announce Lightroom for iOS 2.2, which now supports full-resolution output:

“With version 2.2, we added in the ability for Lightroom mobile to output full resolution files for any file that was either captured on the device or added to the device, either through the camera connection kit, transferred via Wi-Fi from a camera directly, or transferred to the device via services like email, Dropbox, or Google Drive. Additionally, any files that were added directly to an iPhone or iPad are transferred in full resolution to other mobile devices signed into the same account. This way, files captured with your iPhone are available for further editing and exporting from your iPad, in full resolution and vice-versa.”

In addition, Lightroom for iOS 2.2 now supports  3D Touch in the Camera Roll browser view so that you can quickly preview your image with Peek & Pop when browsing Camera Roll photos in the app.

Lightroom mobile 2.2 is available immediately for iPhones and iPads from the App Store.

Enjoy!

    Can I take raw photos from my DSLR, that I bring into the camera roll with my camera connection kit, and import, rate and flag them in Lightroom?

    I’ve been waiting to do this on my iPad on vacation ever since the first version of the mobile app. And now Android users can do this.

      Lightroom mobile doesn’t support raw at this time.

        Anyone willing to give any information as to whether feature parity with Android with respect to Raw files is on the LR Mobile iOS product roadmap?

          I believe raw support is built into the Android OS; so it may need changes by Apple on iOS. For DNG support the Camera2 API has to be enabled in the latest version of Lollipop to shoot DNG from the LR Mobile camera app or directly from device camera.

        Therefore the statement is not quite accurate if RAW files cannot be accommodated – ‘output full resolution files for ANY FILE that was either captured on the device or added to the device, either through the camera connection kit, transferred via Wi-Fi from a camera directly, or transferred to the device via services like email, Dropbox, or Google Drive’

    Lightroom is going in the right direction – it just lacks capacity to deal with RAW files in the iOS version. This is vital for iPad Pro integration with desktop workflow, for photographers on the move. It is the one thing (together with customisable shortcuts, especially on desktop version) that will make LR indispensable. Please Adobe, throw all you can at this aspiration

    Thanks Julieanne, it’s very good news about exporting full resolution now on both iOS (2.2) and Android (2.0), as this was previously a significant limitation.

    Please comment on the below:

    LR Mobile App image Airdrop to desktop – Dimensions 3936X2624, size 1.1MB

    Photos App image (original) Airdrop to desktop – Dimensions 3936X2624, size 3.8MB

    Full resolution yes, but. . .

      Just tested this myself and came back with the same file size in the two scenarios you listed above. Are you comparing the original to an edited file? JPEG compression is dependent on the image contents, so changing a file can have an impact on the efficiency of compression.

      Are the two images the same (basically imported into Lightroom but no changes made) or were edits applied within Lightroom?
