Updates to Lightroom CC on Mobile Devices – iOS , Android & ChromeOS

I’m excited to announce several updates to Lightroom CC on mobile devices  starting with the new and enhanced Raw and Creative Profiles. While the concept of Profiles isn’t new to Lightroom, in this release, their power has been greatly enhanced.

If you’re not familiar with raw profiles, here is a overview of the key concepts :

Profiles

A profile is a set of instructions that is used to render a photograph, converting it from raw camera information into the colors and tones that we see.

  • Every raw image must have a profile applied (and can only have one profile at a time).
  • Profiles are nondestructive and can be changed  at any time without any loss of quality.
  • To access and change profiles in Edit mode, tap the Profiles icon along the bottom of the screen)

  • There are no “right” or wrong” profiles: they’re like filling in a pie – some people will choose cherry and others prefer peach.
  • Previous to this release, Adobe applied the Camera Default profile to all raw files captured using Lightroom on a mobile device. Adobe Standard was the default profile applied to other camera raw files  (camera files synced from the desktop, for example).

Adobe Raw Profiles

There are six new Adobe Raw profiles which can be applied to raw files. The new default profile for raw files in Lightroom Classic is Adobe Color for color images and Adobe Monochrome for Black & White images.

Adobe Color — was designed to be a great starting point for any image. The goal of this profile is to render a relatively neutral, baseline image that closely matches the original colors and tones in the original scene. It assumes that you want the ultimate control over refining and adjusting images in order to achieve the exact look that you want. In comparison to the previous default profile, Adobe Color is a bit warmer in the reds, yellow and oranges, has a very small increase in contrast, and, it does a better job of moving highlights between color spaces.

Adobe Monochrome — ­was carefully tuned to be the best starting point for any black and white image. This profile slightly shifts colors as they are converted to grayscale – brightening the warmer colors and darkening the cooler colors. It also adds a small amount of contrast but allows lots of headroom for editing.

The additional four Adobe Raw profiles that were created as starting points for specific types of images:

Top row left to right: Landscape, Neutral. Bottom Row left to right: Portrait, Vivid.

Adobe Landscape — ­adds a bit more saturation to all of the colors in an image and renders more vibrant blues and greens. While this profile adds a slight amount of contrast to the overall image, it also helps to maintain details by slightly compressing the  highlight and shadow values in scenes with significant contrast.

Adobe Neutral — ­reduces color saturation as well as contrast , rendering a flatter, low contrast version of the image. It‘s designed to give you the most headroom for post processing. This a great profile to start with if you have an image with delicate colors and gradients.

Adobe Portrait — ­is tailored especially for portrait images. It has a slightly more gentle tone curve and is optimized for skin tones.

Adobe Vivid — ­adds vibrance and contrast while still rendering natural skin tones and is a great place to start for images of people in a landscape.

If the image that you’re working with isn’t set to Adobe Color by default, most likely one of two things is happening:

You’re working on a non-raw photograph (like a JPEG or TIFF) – in which case the profile will just say Color because all of the rendering was done already (either in another raw processor or within the camera itself) and you can’t apply a raw profile to a non-raw file.

You’re working with a legacy file – in which case you will see the previously embedded profile which you can choose to change at any time (Lightroom won’t automatically update legacy files using the new profiles as doing so would change the look of the image.)

Adobe Camera Matching Raw Profiles

In addition, Adobe created and ships Adobe Camera Matching profiles. These profiles are designed to match the preset “styles” that can be set using the menus on a camera. Because the style options differ among camera manufacturers, this list of profiles will change depending on your camera.

Adobe Camera Matching Profiles for the Canon 5Ds. Top row left to right: Faithful, Landscape, Neutral. Bottom Row left to right: Portrait, Standard, Monochrome. 

The Camera Matching monochrome profiles behave differently from other Black and White profiles (Adobe Monochrome, Legacy, and the Creative Profiles), by discarding the color information in the file. Therefore, the Vibrance, Saturation, and HSL sliders, are not available (as they would have no effect). You can however add color tints to these images using the Tone Curve, Split Tone, and color swatch with Local Adjustment tools.

Legacy Raw Profiles

Legacy Raw profiles are also included in order to maintain backwards compatibility when working with legacy files.

Creative Profiles

In addition to Raw profiles, are several groups of  Creative profiles. These profiles are designed to apply more creative, stylistic effects to an image and can be applied to non-raw photographs (like JPEG’s and TIFFs). Creative Profiles can (but aren’t required to) use color lookup tables (LUTs) to remap color and tones enabling new and unique ways of processing images. Lightroom ships with several different Creative profiles including:

Artistic Profiles these profiles were designed to be more edgy, and typically have stronger color shifts.

Lightroom’s eight different Artistic profiles.

B & W Profilesthese profiles were designed to create a more dramatic interpretation of the original image, some of these profiles increase/decrease contrast, others limit the dynamic range, and several emulate the effects of using color filters with film.

An assortment of different Black and White profiles (01, 03, 06, 07, 08, 11, Red, Blue).

Modern Profiles these profiles were designed to create unique effects that fit in with current photography styles.

An assortment of different Modern profiles (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10).

Vintage Profiles these profiles were designed to replicate the effects of analogue imagery.

An assortment of different Vintage profiles (1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).

Creative profiles have an Amount slider which can be used to decrease/increase the intensity of the profile.  Note:  it is up to the creator of the profile to define exactly how far the “intensity” can be changed. In other words, you might see subtle or more aggressive changes on a per-profile basis.

 

Previewing and Applying Profiles

Tap the profile to apply it and tap the check to commit to it. Once a profile has been applied, use any of the other slider controls in any of the other edit stacks to make additional modifications to your images. Profiles don’t change slider values.

Quickly Accessing Favorite Profiles

Tap the star icon to add a profile to the Favorites group. Tap it again to remove it.

In addition, iOS has several new features in this release including:

Geometry — While editing an image, tap the Geometry icon at the bottom of the screen to access the Upright controls including Auto, Level, Vertical, Full, and Guided. When using Guided Upright, drag up to four guides in the image to quickly to straighten perspective in an image. Use the transform controls (Distortion, Vertical, Horizontal, Rotate, Aspect, Scale, X and Y offset), for additional refinement.

Grain — In the Effects panel, use the Grain slider to introduce realistic film grain. Fine tune the amount of Grain, Size, and Roughness as desired.

Enhanced control over Lightroom CC Web shares providing the ability to enable downloads, showing metadata, and location information on shares made to lightroom.adobe.com

Left-handed editing mode on iPad.

iPhone X layout optimizations

In addition, Android and ChromeOS has several new features in this release including:

Details — the new details edit stack enables sharpening and noise reduction options to adjust photographic detail.

Grain — In the Effects panel, use the Grain slider to introduce realistic film grain. Fine tune the amount of Grain, Size, and Roughness as desired.

Enhanced control over Lightroom CC Web shares providing the ability to enable downloads, showing metadata, and location information on shares made to lightroom.adobe.com

This release also contains big fixes and added support for new cameras and lenses.

My Favorite Photos captured from the Window Seat in 2017

One could say that my Window Seat book (and ongoing aerial projects) are a byproduct of my position at Adobe. As an evangelist, I spend a great deal of time on airplanes and shooting photographs allows me to stay sane during those long flights. What what most people don’t know is that I‘m scared to death of flying.  Fortunately, I discovered that shooting pictures out of the plane window allowed me to view the scenery in a different context: I became a spectator – an observer of the scene rather than part of it. The camera became a comforting buffer between the reality of that moment and my own thoughts.

While my enthusiasm for aerial photography grows, I’ve continued to try new approaches to it. Instead of limiting myself to taking photographs on commercial flights, I recently hired small aircraft to see what the difference would make in my photos. While I can’t dispute the benefits of being able to plan your route, the time of day, removal of doors etc, I still look out the window on commercial flights and make photos. This past year, I packed my big camera in the overhead bin and used Lightroom on mobile to capture in HDR, edit, and share images taken from commercial flights. Here are four of my favorites taken on the approach to San Francisco.

And here are six more from through out the year.

Flights from left to right: top row – Orlando to Houston, San Jose to Denver, Las Vegas to San Francisco, bottom row – Singapore to Kuala Lumper, Orlando to Houston, Orlando to Houston.

It seems unbelievable that I’ve been photographing out of plane windows for more than a decade, but sometimes you choose your personal projects, and sometimes they choose you. This project remains ideal (for me) because as photographers, we don’t always have a lot of free time to make photographs. By taking advantage of “idle” time in the plane, I have been able to create an entire body of work while getting from point A to point B.

And just FYI, this is what the previous six images look like straight out of the camera – thank you very much Lightroom!  : )

Finally here are two abstract images taken in Chicago while waiting for the plane to push back from the gate (that’s rain/slush/deicing liquid covering the windows). Technically they’re not aerial photographs, but I still really like them.

Here’s to a healthy and happy 2018.

Lightroom Mobile Updates for iOS and Android

I’m excited to announce updates to Lightroom Mobile: iOS has a new selective Brush, the Linear and Radial adjustment tools have an eraser, and a new Details tab enables global sharpening and noise reduction. Android has a new interface which is much more Android-ish.

First, the new selective Brush for iOS: now you can paint anywhere in your photograph and then dial in the enhancements that you want to apply. On the more recent phones that support 3D touch, your “brush” strokes are pressure sensitive allowing you to control the intensity of the effect.

First, tap the Selective edit stack in the lower left, then, tap the plus icon in the upper left.

 

Tap to select the Brush. To change brush parameters, tap-drag up/down on the icons (on the left) to change brush size, feather, and flow (flow is similar to opacity in Photoshop).

 

Painting in the image displays red overlay as a visual indicator of the area that will be modified. To remove any unwanted areas, tap the eraser and paint. Note: use two fingers to zoom and pan when using the selective adjustment tools.

Once you’re finished painting the area to be modified, tap one of the edit stacks to make changes (the red overlay is automatically hidden order to see the changes). Note: you can continue to paint and erase in the image after making the adjustments. 

In this example, both the exposure (Light edit stack) and white balance (Color edit stack) were modified. Tap the check in the lower right to apply the edits. Note: when working with the selective adjustments, tap the three dots in the upper right to access masking overlay options, duplicate, or remove a selective adjustment.

In addition, the Linear and Radial adjustment tools now have an Eraser tool to remove adjustments from unwanted areas.

After creating a Radial or Linear adjustment, tap the Eraser icon and paint in the image area to hide adjustments in unwanted areas.  

There’s a new details Details edit stack to apply global Sharpening and Noise Reduction to an image.

Use the Details tab to apply global Sharpening and Noise Reduction.

The interface for Lightroom mobile on the  iPad Pro has been redesigned specifically for the larger screen and the Apple Pencil is pressure sensitive when using the selective Brush tool.

For Android customers, the team has been hard at work making a completely new version which is much more Android-ish! Be sure to download the update to experience the new look and feel.

If you’re looking for additional training on Lightroom Mobile, I posted a Getting Started Series on youtube. Below is the first video in the series, all of my other videos can be found here: Lightroom mobile video tutorials.

Setting a Default Folder for Lightroom Mobile

When capturing images in Lightroom mobile (or when importing them into Lightroom mobile from your camera roll), Lightorom uploads those photographs to the cloud and then downloads them to Lightroom CC on the desktop. By default, the images appear in the Folders panel under a new drive header with the same name as your mobile device. While it’s easy to select and drag the files  to another folder, it might be easier to import them directly into your desired folder. To do this, you need to change the default location for your mobile files. Under Preferences > Lightroom mobile, enable Specify location for Lightroom mobile images, click Choose, and navigate to the desired folder. 

Note: you can also have Lightroom automatically create folders based on capture date.

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.
