With the new version, especially with the iPad, you can now:

  • Make highly precise adjustments with a simple swipe using the new brush selection tool.
    • Selectively apply Exposure, Brightness, Clarity and other adjustments to a specific part of a photo.
    • Supports Apple Pencil for pressure-sensitive application of enhancements
  • Improved user interface designed specifically for iPad
  • Direct control to adjust Noise Reduction and Sharpening
  • Support for latest cameras and lenses found in the ACR 9.12 release (the full list of cameras and lenses supported by Lightroom can be found at http://www.adobe.com/go/supported_cameras)

The also added two new features to the camera in Lightroom Mobile:

  • Show Highlight Clippings (Zebra)
  • Haptic Feedback (for the phones that support it) with the leveling function.

You can go to the Apple Store to download the new version of the applications.

These updates bring Lightroom Mobile to almost the same level of the desktop version.

Addendum:

If you are new to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom or if you are in-between photo editors and you are considering using Lightroom as your asset management software, there is an incredibly useful article over at the Cole’s Classroom Website, titled: 25 Reasons Why You Should Use Lightroom to Edit Your Photos.

Lately, a lot of people have taken to the web and the social networks to bash Adobe and their deaf-ear approach to the user’s claims of issues and slowness. It’s refreshing to see that there are still worthwhile reasons why everyone should consider using Lightroom.
