Adobe adds ‘Pro’ controls to Lightroom Mobile in latest updates

Adobe has beefed up its Lightroom Mobile photo app with a slew of new premium features and controls for its iOS 2.4 and Android 2.1 updates.

New in Lightroom for Android 2.1 is a Pro mode that lets camera phone photographers take control of shutter speed, ISO, white balance and even focus manually within a brand new interface.

A new Lightroom Camera widget allows quicker access to the camera, and Adobe says it has improved functionality to export full resolution files. “If the files are available somewhere within the Lightroom ecosystem, Lightroom for Android will now download the full resolution version and enable users to export them,” the company says in a statement.

Among the key updates in Lightroom for iOS 2.4 is the ability to import raw photos directly to your iPhone or iPad, then edit and share them.

Also included is the ability to perform local adjustments with linear and radial selection, along with the option to add copyright information to all imported photos and functionality to turn on lens profiles.
