Adobe Lightroom makes waves around the world for the way it handles images, and that famous editing solution is now available on the iPad. Importing DSLR, iPad, or smartphone pictures are all a possibility, with most of the desktop version’s features, changed for use with gestures and fingers thanks to the requirement of touchscreen input. Coolest of all? A sync between Lightroom photos on your desktop and tablet, so changes can be seen in real-time.
Specifically, exposure, color temperature, highlights, shadows, saturation, the crop tool and Adobe’s built-in tone presets are all available at launch, with more complex and detailed features coming later on. While the app is a free download on the App Store, you need to be a Creative Cloud member — subscribing to Adobe’s $9.99 per month photo package. At the very least, this is a great way to edit photos on the run.
