Reading Time: < 1 minute

First rumoured two years ago, Adobe has finally unveiled Lightroom mobile, its companion app to the Lightroom desktop app.


Yet, photographers won’t be able to test-drive the app, as access is granted only to Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers – prices starts at £8.78 per month.

“The new Lightroom mobile app brings powerful Lightroom tools to the iPad, delivering photography essentials – such as non-destructive processing of files – and utilising new Smart Preview technologies to free professional-class photo editing from the confines of the desktop,” says Adobe in a statement. “Lightroom mobile is built on a powerful synchronisation architecture, designed specifically for photos, and provides the most efficient way to manage and edit images across desktops, mobile devices and the Web.”

Users are able to sync their mobile edits, metadata and collection change back to their Lightroom catalog on a computer, import images captured on an iPad, as well as work on images even when offline.
