Adobe Launches Lightroom Mobile 2.5
Software company Adobe, recently released the mobile application of its photo editing software, Lightroom. Available on the iOS platform, the Lightroom for Mobile 2.5 app allows the user to shoot in Adobe’s DNG (digital negative) RAW image format.
The RAW image format allows you to take images of a greater quality and it even offers higher editing possibilities. The DNG format is far better as it records all the data from the camera sensor, without any of the compression that comes with JPEG images. Previously, this raw quality was only possible in traditional film cameras.
DNG images also offer possibilities like, the ability to change the white balance of a photo post capturing. This means that you can adjust the colours and find what colour best suits the original scene. It even allows a user to recover details of shadow and highlighted areas, among various other abilities.
Additionally, Lightroom 2.5 for the mobile supports a wider P3 colour gamut, which offers up to 25 percent more colours. This means that all your images will have more accurate colours reflected in them.
The DNG format lets you take your photos to the next level, by showing you all the tonal and colour data of your camera’s sensor. This data is automatically discarded when images are shot in JPEG.
While the Lightroom for Mobile 2.5 application is free for all users, you must have an Adobe Creative Cloud membership. This is so that you can easily sync all your photos to your other devices.
In order to capture DNG images, your Apple device must have the latest iOS 10 installed and have a camera with a 12 megapixel sensor. This automatically excludes any devices below the iPhone 6S from getting this app. This is the first time that the DNG RAW imaging format is available on the iOS platform. Earlier this year in February, Lightroom for Mobile was released for Android devices.
The DNG format from Adobe has ushered in the next generation and revolution in digital and mobile photography.
