Improving iPhone Images in Photoshop

Adobe just added lens support for the iPhone 5S in Camera Raw 8.3. In this video Photoshop Sr. Product Manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes explains the process of improving iPhone images in Photoshop.

iPhone Editing in Photoshop

I do many of these same things with my iPhone images; however, I import my files into my Lightroom library. I generally just dump my iPhone images into my Lightroom library every so often. I use a dedicated folder simply labled ‘iPhone’ for each year, so that all of my photos from 2013 from iPhone are in a single folder. From there, I can edit and add to collections as I see fit and I can always go back to find images from my iPhone in a single folder. As an added bonus, all of these images are geotagged, so I have another way to sort if needed.

Do you guys use Photoshop or Lightroom for editing images from your iPhone or Android phone?

    To be frank I’ve never thought much about the pictures I take with my iPhone. I dump those pictures into iPhoto and there they sit.

    Then again, I don’t think I take too many pictures with my phone that I would consider worthy of editing in something like Ps or Lr. But that’s just me…

      I’ve been known to print iPhone pics from time to time. But I’ll also pack them in with vacation photos in online galleries for family and print albums. I edited several in Lightroom from this year’s trip to Disney that we took, then uploaded them with the rest of the pics from a 5D Mark II and 70D. It just would not have been a complete album without the iPhone pics – because we capture so many moments with it when we don’t have a “real camera” out and ready.

      On a related note, for printing straight from your iPhone, I love PostalPix:
