Lightroom 2.2 for iOS is here, and brings a bunch of improvements, including an oft-requested feature: full resolution output. Lightroom 2.0 for Android is also available.
With version 2.2, we added in the ability for Lightroom mobile to output full resolution files for any file that was either captured on the device or added to the device, either through the camera connection kit, transferred via Wi-Fi from a camera directly, or transferred to the device via services like email, Dropbox, or Google Drive. Additionally, any files that were added directly to an iPhone or iPad are transferred in full resolution to other mobile devices signed into the same account. This way, files captured with your iPhone are available for further editing and exporting from your iPad, in full resolution and vice-versa.
One of my favorite workflows is shooting with my camera and transferring to my iPhone for quick editing and sharing. The photo in this post was shot the last time I was in Japan for cherry blossoms, and after reading about how cherry blossom season is going to be extra early this year, I felt it was finally time to finish the image. I transferred the file via Wi-Fi to my iPhone, imported it into Lightroom mobile, edited the file, and exported. Of course, our blog then down sampled the image, but that’s a different story…
The full list of improvements are :
- New : Full resolution output. Now, export and share photos that were captured on your device or that you added to your device at full resolution.
- Updated : 3D Touch support in the Camera Roll browser view. Quickly preview your image with Peek & Pop when browsing Camera Roll photos in the app.
- Fixed : Issue that lead to a potential crash.
- Improved : Various bugs and issues.
- Lightroom mobile 2.2 is available immediately for iPhones and iPads from the App Store.
The Creative Cloud Photography Plan (Photoshop CC & Lightroom CC) is available for $9.99/month.
