Get a Lightroom! Adobe's LR Mobile for iPad goes live

Adobe has brought a mobile version ofLightroom to the iPad. Basically, it's Lightroom PC with atouch-friendly UI. The app is free to download and has a 30-daytrial, but then it's Adobe Creative Cloud subscription time. Thus,everything you do gets saved in the cloud and syncs to all yourdevices. This goes both ways - if you edit photos on your PC or Mac,the changes will be pushed to the iPad app as well.

Prospective iPad Lightroomers might bewondering how the tablet handles those memory-consuming RAW images. Theanswer is Smart Previews - instead of raining megabytes, the cloudsensibly transmits Smart Previews - up to 2560 pixels by widthapproximations of the raw image that weigh in at 1-2 megabytes. Youmake your edits on those, while the untouched versions remain onlineor on your desktop, and the changes are synced to them. Of course,Lightroom supports photos from the iPad camera roll as well.

As we asserted from the beginning, theapp features the familiar Lightroom tools and presets, flagging andrejecting photos, sharing in social networks - in short, everythingto make your photography "go places". Minus the photos and artistic talent, ofcourse. That's up to you.

Lightroom Mobile is available from thelink below. It requires an iPad 2 or later.
