Lightroom for iOS 2.4 and Android 2.1. are now available for download!

Lightroom for iOS 2.4 includes the addition of local adjustment tools (Radial and Linear), raw file format support (technology preview), the ability to copyright photos on import, automatic lens profile correction (if your camera and lens combination are supported), and the ability to use keyboard shortcuts when a physical keyboard is attached to an iPad.

Local Adjustments Tools:

To use a local adjustment, tap the Local Adjust icon.

01 local adj icon

Tap the icon in the lower left to choose between the  Linear and Radial Selection tools.

02Choose tool

Tap-drag in the image preview to apply the tool and change the settings as desired. Note: swipe in the options area to access additional settings to the right of Clarity.

03 Options

For the Linear Gradient:

  • Tap-drag the pin to reposition.
  • Tap-drag the center line to rotate
  • Tap-drag the start/end lines to increase/decrease the length of the fade
  • Tap the trash icon to delete the pin
  • Tap the plus icon to add a second adjustment

Note: each time you add a new adjustment, all settings are reset to zero.

Linear and Radial adjustments can be quickly duplicated within an image:

  • Tap and hold the pin
  • Tap Duplicate Selection
  • Tap-drag the pin to reposition the duplicate05Dupe

You can also apply the same setting to another file using the Previous button (the second to last option in the row of tiles).

For the Radial Gradient:

06 invert

  • Tap the white/black square with the arrows in it to invert the mask
  • Tap-drag the small white circles to change size.
  • Tap-drag the white line to rotate.
  • Tap-drag the large circle (with the gradient) to change the feather radius (fade range).

Note: the Radial selection can be larger than the image. Use the pinch gesture to zoom out and drag as desired.

07 PinchZoom

 

Raw File Format Support (Technology Preview)

You can now transfer raw files to your iOS device and work on them in Lightroom mobile. Add your files to the iOS camera roll. From there, import into Lightroom mobile.

There are a variety of ways to add files to Lightroom mobile including:

08 Auto Add

  • Tap the Lr icon and enable  Auto Add Photos (to add photos to the All Photos view).
  • Tap the three dots next to any collection and Enable Auto Add (to add photos to that specific collection).
  • Within a collection, tap the Add Photos… button.

The raw files that you import onto Lightroom mobile (as well as any changes made to them) will be synchronized across devices including the Lightroom desktop application. In this workflow, a full version of the raw file is stored in the cloud (if you start by downloading photographs into the Lightroom desktop app, Smart Previews are stored in the cloud). Depending on your camera, you may notice that raw files take longer to download and take up more space on your device because of their size). This new functionality should enable me to leave my laptop behind more often as I can now select, edit, and publish raw images from my SLR while on location.

Lens Profiles and Copyright Data

You can also enable lens profile corrections for Raw only or All files as well as Add copyright metadata on import. Tap the Lr icon to access the settings and tap Import.

10Import

Choose to Enable (lens profile) Corrections on All files or Raw only and Apply Copyright data.

09 Metadata01

If you have a physical keyboard attached to your iPad, you can use keyboard shortcuts in Lightroom for mobile

Note: Local adjustments and raw support are available for members with a Creative Cloud subscription or for a limited time through a free trial. As before, all of the rest of Lightroom for mobile works without being a paid member.

Lightroom for Android 2.1

The capture experience for Android has been redefined with the new Lightroom Camera widget. Not only can you capture raw files (DNG), the camera has a new Pro mode that allows you to control shutter speed, ISO, white balance, and focus manually. In addition, you can download and export full resolution files (if the files are within the Lightroom ecosystem).

In Settings, tap Notifications (your settings might be slightly different depending on your iOS and device).

Choose Settings

Select Lightroom from the list.

Scroll and select Lightroom

Enable “Allow Notifications” and “Show in Notification Center”.

Enable "Allow Notifications" and "Show in Notification Center".

Then, access Notifications by swiping downwards from the top of the screen. Tap Edit. Under the the “Do Not Include” section, tap the green plus icon next to Lightroom mobile to enable it.

Scroll to the top to verify Lightroom mobile has been added, and tap Done. Lightroom mobile will now appear in the Notification Center enabling you to quickly access the in-app  camera.

Lightroom 5.7 – Collaboration Features and the Lightroom Web Interface

If you are not familiar with Lightroom’s web interface, it’s an excellent way to share collections of images with clients and friends so that they can make comments and add “likes” to images. This collaboration process can occur on any device that has web access via a browser (in other words, your clients and friends don’t have to have Lightroom or download any special viewing utility to see the collections that you share with them  – they do however need an Adobe ID).

To view all of your synced collections within a browser, go to lightroom.adobe.com. Or, from within the Lightroom desktop app, choose Help > View Your Synced Collections on the Web.

2014-11_lrwebCollections

Click on a collection to view the contents.

2014-11_lrweb

Click on an image to view it. When someone else views your image, they will be able to add “comments” and “like” you image (see how to share your Collections below).

2014-11_lrwebImage

To view a collection in the web interface from within the Lightroom desktop app, Control -click (Mac)  |  Right -click (Win) on any synced collection in the Collection panel and choose Lightroom Mobile Link > View on Web.

2014-11_viewonweb

Synced collections can be public or private (they are private by default). To share your collection, click the Share button at the top-right of the Grid View.

2014-11_ShareCollection

Once you have made a collection public, you can easily copy and share the link as well as choose to Unshare at any time.

2014-11_SharelinkUnshare

Note: since Lightroom mobile is a service, it is available only via membership plans. Lightroom 5 perpetual license does not include access to Lightroom mobile. Click here for the FAQ for Lightroom mobile.

Since I can’t figure out how to add an illustration in the comments, here is a screenshot of the little triangle under the name of a collect. When clicked, it displays the Custom Sort order that was asked about in the comments…

Lightroom Mobile – Default Cellular Network Behavior

The Lightroom mobile team has changed the default cellular network behavior to dramatically improve the product experience. Instead of the preference being turned OFF by default (like I state in my video tutorials), it is ON by default. This enables Lightroom to automatically Sync using Cellular data if WiFi is not available.

2014_04_21_LRSync01Note: if you have aWiFi only iPad, then this doesn’t apply to  you. If you do have a cellular plan, don’t forget to monitor your data usage!

Lightroom Mobile and Smart Previews

After yesterdays release of Lightroom mobile, I want to reiterate that when you sync a collection of images from Lightroom on the desktop to Lightroom mobile we are syncing Smart Previews – not the entire raw files. This means that you should not think of Lightroom mobile as a “backup solution”. 

There are a number of reasons for using Smart Previews in today’s workflow including; bandwidth, speed, performance, and storage space. So although you might have thought that Smart Previews were only useful for working with off-line files, now you know that they were designed for and specifically optimized to be used on a mobile device.

And don’t worry, Lightroom will create Smart Previews for the images that you choose to sync automatically, so you don’t have to do a thing.
