Lightroom mobile 2.1 for iPhone and iPad users is now available. Here’s are the major features included in the update:
- The point curve has been added to the Adjust section, for precise control over brightness, darkness, and color cast of ranges of tones in your photos.
- Split toning has been added to the Adjust section, to add color casts to your black and white and color photos.
- A set of five live presets have been added to the camera. They are non-destructive, so you can adjust or remove them after shooting, if you wish. Available for iPhone 5s and later, and iPad Air and later.
- iPad Pro support: native resolution
- iOS9 iPad multitasking features: slide over and split view enabled
- 3D Touch support (iPhone 6s/6s Plus only): 3D touch from the home screen to select the camera, 3D touch in Grid view to see a preview of an image
- Improved ability to add the same photo to multiple collections easier (no more warning at import that a photo is already in a collection)
- The camera can now be added to the iPad or iPhone Notification Center, so that you can access it a little bit more quickly.
The most powerful feature of Lightroom mobile, available to Creative Cloud subscribers, is the ability to sync collections of photos and editing work to and from your mobile device and Lightroom on your Desktop. However, anyone with an iPhone or iPad can use the free Lightroom mobile app to capture, edit and share photos, so anyone (with iOS 8.1 or later) can take advantage of these updates.
To update to Lightroom mobile 2.1, on the Updates tab in the iOS App Store, find Lightroom mobile and tap on Update. To download this free app for the first time, search for Lightroom mobile in the App Store.
