Lightroom mobile now available!

Today we’re announcing the immediate availability of Lightroom mobile.

Lightroom mobile extends your existing workflows beyond the desktop, allowing you to utilize your iPad to review and edit your images and have the changes sync back to your Lightroom catalog at home, including:

  • access images in your Lightroom catalog
  • make selects, reject unworthy photos
  • apply a preset
  • fine tunes your images using the Basic panel
  • import new photos directly from the camera roll

Once you’ve told Lightroom a collection of pictures should be sent to Lightroom mobile, the process is handled automatically and the pictures will become available on your iPad once it is connected to the internet. Any changes you make on your iPad will be automatically synced and updated back to the Lightroom catalog on your desktop.

Lightroom mobile utilizes Smart Previews to provide raw editing functionality on your iPad.  First introduced in Lightroom 5 beta, Smart Previews are:

  • Based on the DNG file format
  • Limited to 2560 pixels on the long edge
  • Smaller versions original raw files
  • Can be used to make adjustments even when the original files aren’t available locally
  • Adjustments made to Smart Previews are applied to the original when the original files are available

NOTE – It may take up t0 24 hours for Lightroom mobile to be available in your local iOS app store.

 

How to get started:

 Download Lightroom 5.4

Lightroom mobile is a companion to Lightroom desktop.  Lightroom 5.4 is the first version of Lightroom desktop that includes the ability to sync images to Lightroom mobile.  Please update to the latest version of Lightroom 5 using either the Creative Cloud app or by clicking on the “Help-> Check for Updates” menu option.

Sign In

Lightroom mobile utilizes cloud services to sync Smart Previews and changes between Lightroom desktop and Lightroom mobile.  Lightroom mobile requires a qualifying Creative Cloud or Photoshop Photography Plan subscription:

  • Photoshop Photography Program
  • Creative Cloud complete plan
  • Creative Cloud Student and Teacher Edition
  • Creative Cloud for teams complete plan

A free 30-day trial of Lightroom mobile is available

Sync a collection

Lightroom mobile is organized around Collections.  Images within Collections will be synced and be available in Lightroom mobile.

Visit the App Store on your iPad and download Lightroom mobile.  Once you login with the same Creative Cloud account, you’ll see all of your synced Collections.

Check out your photos at lightroom.adobe.com

In addition to Lightroom mobile, we’ve also launched Lightroom web, a new way to view and share your images from any web browser.  Available at  http://lightroom.adobe.com.

 

System Requirements

Lightroom mobile is available now on iPad 2 or later, and works on iOS7 or later.

Release Notes

Camera Raw 8.4 introduces the following new features for Photoshop CC customers:

A new before/after Preview system with side-by-side and split-view support. 

  • The main idea is a simple Before/After set of image settings.
  • The Preview checkbox in earlier versions of ACR has been replaced by three buttons in the bottom-right of the ACR main dialog. From left to right, they are:
    • Mode: Click this button to cycle through left/right and top/bottom side-by-side and split-view modes. Click-and-hold this button to bring up a popup menu for directly choosing Preview modes and accessing the Preview Preferences. Keyboard shortcut: Press Q to cycle through the Preview modes.
    • Swap: Click this button to swap Before/After settings. Keyboard shortcut: Press P to swap Before/After settings for the primary selected image only; press Shift-P to swap Before/After settings for all selected images.
    • Copy: Click this button to copy the After settings to the Before settings. This is useful for establishing a temporary “checkpoint” for your image editing session. Keyboard shortcut: Press Option-P to copy After settings to the Before settings for the primary selected image only. Press Shift-Option-P to copy After settings to the Before settings for all selected images.
  • The After preview image always reflects the current slider and tool settings (White Balance, Exposure, etc.).
  • The standard single-image view always shows the After state.
  • In the side-by-side and split-view modes, the Before settings are always shown on the left or top, and the After settings are always shown on the right or bottom.
  • The Preview Preferences dialog supports customizing the Preview modes used for cycling and some drawing options.
  • When using any tool other than Zoom and Pan (hand) in a side-by-side or split-view, changes are only allowed on the After view. Using the Crop tool will put you back into the standard single-image mode.
  • Zooming and panning on one view will automatically zoom and pan the other.

Pet Eye correction: The Red Eye tool can now correct bright pupils in animals. Select ‘Pet Eye’ from the new drop down menu in the Red Eye tool to locate and fix pet eyes.

Changes to Local Corrections:

  • Added a mechanism to quickly reset all local correction sliders (Temperature, Exposure, etc.) to zero: right-click on a local adjustment pin and choose “Reset Local Correction Settings” from the context menu. Another way is to click on a local adjustment pin, and then choose “Reset Local Correction Settings” from the flyout menu.
  • Added “Fill Image” to context menu for Radial Filter. Right-click on a radial filter adjustment pin and choose “Fill Image” from the context menu to resize the radial filter to cover the image area. (Shortcut: double-click inside the ellipse overlay for a radial filter adjustment to accomplish the same task.)
  • Added “Check All” and “Check None” buttons to Synchronize, New Preset, Save Settings, and Copy/Paste (Bridge) dialog boxes. These are shortcuts for checking all/none of the check boxes.
  • Added keyboard shortcut: When using the Crop Tool or Straighten Tool, press the X key to flip the crop aspect ratio (landscape to portrait, portrait to landscape).
  • Added explanatory note to Lens Correction “Profile” panel to indicate when built-in (metadata-based) lens profiles are automatically applied to the image.

Added context menu to Histogram pane. The context menu can be used to enable Lab color readouts, even when the Workflow Options are set to another color space (such as Adobe RGB). The context menu and also be used to toggle the shadow, highlight, and gamut clipping warnings.

Added Camera Matching color profiles (PROVIA/STANDARD, Velvia/VIVID, ASTIA/SOFT, MONOCHROME, etc.) for the following Fujifilm cameras:

  • Fujifilm X-A1
  • Fujifilm X-E1
  • Fujifilm X-E2
  • Fujifilm X-M1
  • Fujifilm X-S1
  • Fujifilm X-T1
  • Fujifilm X-Pro1
  • Fujifilm X10
  • Fujifilm X20
  • Fujifilm XF1
  • Fujifilm XQ1
  • Fujifilm X100
  • Fujifilm X100S

Bug Fixes:

  • Fix bug that prevented opening Nikon D800/D800E raw images shot with a DX lens in Live View Video mode.
  • Grain effect now varies from image to image to facilitate editing time-lapse and video frame sequences.
  • Artifacts appear along edges of photo when applying grain.

Thanks!

  • When selecting and adjusting multiple images, the Crop adjustment was not applied to the most selected image.
  • Local adjustment brush pin were not redrawing properly after moving from one location to another.
  • When using Camera Raw as a Filter in Photoshop CC, pressing the “Cancel” button on a Smart Object would rest the Smart Object to default settings.
