Adobe releases Lightroom 2.0 with new in-app camera, lets you manage RAW images without a PC

Adobe has released quite the major update for its Android app Lightroom. This latest release adds a number of improvements to the experience, including support for RAW images without using a PC, as well as a built-in camera. It’s a welcome update to an app that many rely on to edit and manage their workflow when mobile.

Here’s a breakdown of what is new in version 2.0:

  • An in-app camera, supporting the capture of images in DNG raw format
  • Shoot-through presets, also available within the in-app camera, enabling previewing and capturing images with a series of built-in presets providing non-destructive editing
  • Dehaze tool to adjust haze and fog in an image
  • Split Toning enhancement, enabling the addition of a color cast to the highlights and shadows of an image, creating a uniquely stylized color image or replicating the look and feel of a traditional toned black and white image
  • Target Adjustment Tool functionality in the Color/B&W editing tool, providing direct, on-image editing controls
  • Point mode in Curve tool providing complete control over the tonality and contrast of an image
  • Enhanced sharing with one-tap access to Adobe Premiere Clip for crafting video stories.

The company notes that world-renowned travel photographer Colby Brown was brought on-board to test the latest version of Lightroom on the Nexus 6P. You can see some of the images he managed to capture while travelling to Cuba by hitting the link below to the official blog announcement.
