Lightroom Mobile for iOS Gets Raw Support, Local Adjustments; Android Camera Improvement

Big news today for iPad and iPhone users: you can now import raw files from your camera or memory card into Lightroom mobile and edit them, and these original files and their edits will sync back to Lightroom on your desktop.

Here’s a list of what else is new for iPads and iPhones: Lightroom mobile iOS 2.4 adds two of Lightroom Desktop’s local adjustment tools – the radial filter and graduated filter (renamed the radial and linear selection tools, respectively) New import settings to turn on lens […more]
