Hints about Adobe’s future mobile photography tools

Managing your photos across a range of devices (phones, tablets, computers, cameras) really starts to suck. We’re exploring some interesting solutions that go beyond what others have announced:

No matter which device is in your hand, you see your entire photo library. So those hundreds of photos you took while touring through Italy with your smartphone would also appear in the library on your tablet device and at home on your laptop…just like that.

At Adobe, we’re exploring solutions to get you there. And it should come as no surprise that we will also leverage the power of Photoshop editing technology for quick fixes along the way.

A tad vague, maybe, but stay tuned. Good things are on the way.

    Please make a Lightroom library->iOS wireless viewer :) I understand that it will take just a few moments for Lightroom library to take whole iOS device’s space, so a wireless viewer would be so cool…

    That tantalizing piece on photoshop.com is unsigned. Would it be possible to reveal the author?

    Victor: Look just under the title of the post.

    “So those hundreds of photos you took while touring through Italy with your smartphone would also appear in the library on your tablet device and at home on your laptop…just like that.”

    WOW!! Just like that?? How cool would THAT be?? I mean… that’d totally be like… like… gee, ICLOUD?

    [No, it would be better. Thanks for the uninformed snark, though. –J.]

    <_<

    My tip: http://www.apple.com/icloud/what-is.html … notice the animation at the top…

    That sound cool, but to be honest, I would really prefer to have the thumbnail of my PSD in Windows Explorer. I can’t buy Adobe & Microsoft explanations about that… I am force to use Bridge or Mini-bridge only because of that…

    (The dll trick does not work on Windows 7 64bits.)

    Duhhh…I scanned that page so many times, looking for a by-line! Thanks, Alan!

    isn’t this what Apple’s iCloud PhotoStream is promising ?

    admittedly they only deal with the last 1000 shots but that’s quite a lot!

    i guess the missing piece in their system is getting the shots from a camera (assuming your camera is not an iPhone) to PhotoStream, but hopefully Eye-Fi are working on that (and hopefully Eye-Fi are working on a CF card damnit!).

    Don’t mind at all John; just great to know you guys are ‘on it’ :)

    All the best to you,
    Glyn
