Photographers with Android phones rejoice, Adobe has finally released the mobile version of its popular image organisation and editing software, Lightroom, for Android-powered handsets. Users can try Lightroom mobile for 30 days for free, after which they’ll need an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription to continue using it.
Lightroom mobile was first released for Apple’s iPad and iPhone and allows users to edit, organise and share images. The app synchronises edits, metadata and other changes to the desktop version of Lightroom stored on a user’s PC or Mac using Adobe Creative Cloud.
Users can also opt to automatically import images from their phone’s gallery and sync them with Lightroom on their laptop or desktop. Changes made to images using Lightroom mobile or Lightroom for desktop devices are non-destructive in that they’re applied to an image but don’t change the original file.
Lightroom mobile is available as a free download for Android phones via the Google Play store, but users must have Lightroom 5.4 or higher and an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. The Creative Cloud Photography plan, which costs $9.99 per month, includes Lightroom 5, Photoshop CC and Lightroom mobile.
