On Wednesday Adobe announced Creative Cloud 2014. Along with it there are several mobile apps. The most interesting one to me is Lightroom mobile for the iPhone. Yea, I know, support for Android is not available yet; it’s coming.
Lightroom mobile is clearly a work in progress. Adobe still working at understanding mobile photography because they strip off important metadata from your photos, like date, time and location and they don’t sync video files (the dropbox app has done that for a long time). Adobe is new to the field of mobile photography; this is not their core competency. But despite these oversights this new concept of having Lightroom running on your camera is groundbreaking and I think it has huge potential!
Sure, this new Lightroom mobile feature is not a Lightroom feature that you are going to use for shooting real estate but the concept of a camera automatically syncing it’s files to Lightroom is compelling and I want for my DSLR! Julieanne Kost’s video explains all the features of Lightroom mobile
Oh, yea, the other great news for photographers is that the Photoshop and Lightroom Creative Cloud bundle priced at $9.99 is now a permanent pricing plan. This is a great deal!
