Adobe’s powerful Lightroom has just been updated to version 2.1 with a number of goodies for both iPad and iPhone users.
Ready for the iPad Pro
Most importantly, the photo editor is now completely optimized for the larger and high-resolution screen of the iPad Pro. All iPad users can also take advantage of the Split View and Slide Over feature in iOS 9.
Anyone with an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus can now take advantage of 3D Touch support in the app. Simply press on the app’s icon to get quick access to the app’s built-in camera. Inside the app’s Grid View, you can get a quick preview of an image with the Peek gesture. An even longer press will Pop the image into the full screen.
The new Notification Center widget will allow iPhone or iPad users to quickly access the in-app camera.
Here’s a complete list of other changes:
New: Shoot-through Presets. Apply one of five new, specially formulated presets while capturing a photo from the Adobe in-app camera. Preview how the presets will be applied to your photo before you capture, and enjoy the freedom of adjusting settings after capture with full non-destructive capabilities. Shoot-through presets are available for 64-bit devices only, such as iPhone 5s and later and iPad Air and later.
Enhanced: Tone Curve – Point Curve Mode. Now, take color control to the next level with a full function Tone Curve tool, enabling access to RGB as well as individual red, green and blue color channels in your photo.
Enhanced: Usability improvements throughout the app. Add photos to multiple collections easier, import photos faster, improved gesture support, and more, get you quickly organizing, creating, and sharing amazing images anywhere you are.
Before today’s improvements, the last major update arrived with version 2.0 in October. That version allowed anyone to use the apps without needing to purchase desktop software or a Creative Cloud subscription. Just to note, you can only edit images on your iOS device and not sync to a PC or Mac without ponying up more cash.
