In the main, the latest update to Lightroom for iOS makes working with images in the app quicker and easier, whether on iPhone or iPad.
Most notably, Lightroom for iOS now lets you copy adjustments from one photo and paste them onto another photo. This effectively allows faster editing of images, especially if you intend to apply similar changes to a series of images.
Lightroom for iOS now also lets you find images more easily with the new Segmented view in Collections.
Another interesting feature in the new versions of Lightroom for iPhone and iPad is Presentation Mode. This enables you to show off your images in the app by passing your device to your family, friends, or colleagues without running the risk of having your adjustments, ratings, and flags changed by accident.
The new versions of Lightroom for iPhone and iPad also includes the following bug fixes:
- Abnormal exit that occurred when downloading images for offline use and account token expires
- Issues creating collections after initial login
- Abnormal exit when editing account settings
- When opening an image in other applications, Lr mobile incorrectly provided an .ig file instead of a jpeg file. This only occurred with Dropbox and Adobe Reader.
- Unable to open smart previews from certain Fuji RAF raw files
The initial download of either app comes with a 30-day free trial. Thereafter, it requires a qualifying Adobe Creative Cloud plan.
Of course, Adobe Lightroom for iOS syncs with Adobe Lightroom for desktop, which Adobe has been touting since Apple announced the end of development of Aperture and iPhoto in favor of the new Photos app for Mac.
As it happens, Photos for Mac has finally made its long-awaited appearance on the newly released beta version of OS X Yosemite 10.10.3. Click here for our in-depth look at Apple’s new photo editing and management app for Mac.
