Lightroom Mobile - July Updates

Adobe’s July updates for LR mobile bring one of the most requested features in Lightroom for iOS – the selective adjustment brush. The iPad interface is so much more intuitive making the iPad Pro, and the iPad Pro 2, a serious option as a laptop replacement for any photographer. The Android version has been re-built from the ground up and Adobe is working hard to bring the adjustment brush to Android in a future update; to compliment the radial and gradient selective adjustment tools.

Check out the Adobe blog for further details.

The companion browser app – Lightroom Web – also gets a new feel and gives users the ability to import and work with their photos anywhere they have access to a computer.

Adobe evangelist Julieanne Kost has a series of video tutorials illustrating Lightroom Web including the powerful Technology Previews behind search and other features. You can find these by visiting Julieanne’s blog at this link:

Adobe has also released Lightroom 6.12 and LR CC 2015.12 together with the latest Camera Raw update; version 9.12. This is a minor update (v.nine-eleven was skipped) providing raw support for the following new camera models:

Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Canon EOS 200D(EOS Kiss X9, EOS Rebel SL2)
Leica TL2
Nikon D7500
Olympus Tough TG-5

New Apple iMac Pro

Unusually for Apple in today’s keynote we get a sneak peak of the forthcoming “iMac Pro”.  Its dark grey instead of silver like the updated regular iMacs and it does look cool.

Apple also announced the next Mac OS “High Sierra” and iOS11 for tablets and phones. The iPad Pro will have an enhanced refresh rate giving an almost instant response when using the Apple pencil. Apple has also informed us that Serif is immediately releasing Affinity Photo for the iPad including the ability to work with layers. The ability to drag & drop also comes to the iPad.

Home Pod is a new deep base speaker from Apple Music featuring ambient energy to revolutionise music listening in the home.

The app Store is getting a complete revamp with a “Today” page featuring the latest apps and games. Apple Pay brings personal peer to peer encrypted payments.

An upgraded Safari will become the fastest web browser ever.
