Lightroom 5.4 and Lightroom Mobile Released

Lightroom 5.4 and Lightroom Mobile Released

lightroom-mobile

While I was wrong that there would be a major upgrade to Lightroom this week, I was right in my suspicions that something was coming. It turns out that not only did Adobe release an upgrade to the desktop version, but they also released “Lightroom Mobile”, an iPad based companion app that uses smart previews and Adobe’s cloud services to sync selected collections and perform ratings and edits on your iPad which sync back to your main Library.

This was demoed a while ago, and it’s good to see it released. It’s first thing in the morning here in Ireland, so I’m still gathering all the news about this, (and downloading it as we speak!). I’ll be trying it myself later today, but for now, here’s a selection of some of the coverage of this:

Lightroom Mobile is now available on the App Store.

You need Lightroom 5.4 to power the synchronisation. It’s not available in the “check for updates” link inside Lightroom yet, but you can download it manually from Adobe. This release also adds support for the Fuji XT–1 and the Fuji colour profiles that were in the Camera Raw beta.
