Adobe’s long-rumored iPad version of Lightroom has finally made its way onto the App Store. Users will need to have a $9.99 subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photoshop Photography Program. For that fee, you’ll gain access to the desktop version of Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC along with the iPad version of Lightroom. Probably the best feature of the iPad app is that it automatically syncs photos between the desktop and mobile version of the program. So any mobile edits, along with metadata and collection changes, will automatically appear on the desktop version of Lightroom and vice versa. All images captured with an iPad are also automatically synced back to the desktop Lightroom catalog. As a nice touch, users can even work on images when their iPad isn’t connected to the Internet. Photographers can even edit RAW files from their DSLR cameras using the Smart Previews function of the app. Designed for the iPad/iPad mini, Adobe Lightroom can be downloaded now for free on the App Store. It requires at least iOS 7.0 or later.
