Along with updates to Lightroom Desktop and Mobile, Adobe has released an update of Lightroom Web. Lightroom web is available to Creative Cloud subscribers, at lightroom.adobe.com. If you don’t have a subscription to sign in with, you can visit this same page, click on Try on Web, and sign in with an Adobe ID. This will give you a 30 day free trial Creative Cloud subscription.
New in this update are:
- A new Welcome page, with access to your collections synced from Lightroom Desktop, news on what’s new, and more.
- Editing capabilities. In addition to rating and flagging photos, we can now do basic edits – cropping, applying some presets, Basic panel tone and presence edits, working on individual colors with the Color / B&W panel, and Dehaze from the Effects panel. These edits are least responsive using Safari, and most responsive using Google Chrome. Adobe is working on improving Safari performance.
- The ability to upload photos directly into Lightroom Web and the Creative Cloud. Imagine that you are away from home and have access to a computer and the internet, but not to the Lightroom software, or your catalog. Upload your memory card of photos (raw, JPEG, etc.) to Lightroom Web, work on them in your browser, and then your files and your edits will automatically appear back in Lightroom on your Desktop computer at home!
