Lightroom goes Mobile!

Adobe today announced Lightroom Mobile which allows the synchronisation of files between the desktop application and your iPad. Images can be edited, on the go, with all edits and changes synced back to the Lightroom catalogue at home.

You'll need to download the Lightroom Mobile app from the Apple app store to your iPad and then download the latest version of Lightroom which is an update for Lightroom 5. Both the app and the update are free. You'll also need to set up an Adobe ID to sign in if you don't already have one. Then you sign in using the ID on the app and also on the desktop to allow both to sync with each other.

Adobe's design evangelist, Terry White gives an initial preview here:

Lightroom 5 Beta Launched

Adobe has released the Public Beta version of Lightroom 5. A beta version is still a work in progress and is released to be used, free of charge, by the public who can report any bugs or issues directly to Adobe who may address them before the final version of the software is released.

Terry White is a Worlwide Design Evangelist for Adobe. He has created the video below where he demonstrates his five favourite features in the beta release.

You can download the free Lightroom 5 beta here. To learn about more technical updates to this release, visit the Lightroom Journal blog. You can submit your thoughts and ideas to this feedback page.

Adobe says that if you already have Lightroom, they will not update your existing catalogues when you download the beta. Rather, a new catalogue will be created where you can import your images. They also recommend that you only use copies of your images in the beta as this is not a finished product and is still a work in progress. Therefore, you should not use your original images with it.
