Adobe Lightroom gets new features to offer better picture editing on your phone
Lightroom, the app that gives you plenty of extra features to help you capture, edit and share great-looking pictures, has just received an important update for both Android and iOS platforms.
If you're using an Android phone as your daily driver, Lightroom has brought some nifty features for you. For starters, App Shortcuts are now available to everyone with devices powered by Android Nougat and later devices, which will allow users to tap and hold on the app icon to quickly launch the app into popular modes.
With the latest version of Lightroom for Android, Adobe promises users will have more control for managing storage. Also, the update addresses some issues with certain smartphones; you can find the most important ones below:
- Resolved an issue that prevented some Huawei customers from importing images.
- Resolved an issue that caused a crash for some Pixel 2 customers on export.
- Resolved a problem that prevented some Samsung customers from installing the previous version.
Furthermore, the update should add improved quality to HDR capturing, as well as many bug fixes and speed improvements.
More importantly, both Android and iOS apps now include a reworked Auto mode, which is supposed to create better results. The new Auto mode uses Adobe's AI (artificial intelligence) called Adobe Sensei, as well as machine learning platform.
According to Adobe, the Auto Settings mode should now create better photos by analyzing an image and comparing it to tens of thousands of professionally edited photos to create a beautiful, pleasing image.
Adobe Lightroom is available for free via App Store and Google Play Store, but you'll have to pay for the premium features if you want to use them.
