Adobe has finally launched Lightroom mobile for iPad after teasing the app for the better part of a year. Before we get to the features, some readers will want to know up front that it is only available for Creative Cloud members. If you are part of the Photoshop Photography Program or a full Creative Cloud subscriber, Lightroom mobile is available to you at no additional expense.
Lightroom mobile now allows you to sync your iPad with your Lightroom 5 desktop library. Lightroom mobile uses Smart Previews to allow you to make non-destructive edits on your iPad, which will then sync to your desktop library.
I wish Adobe would just go ahead and make this a permanent deal, but for now the Photoshop Photography Program, which includes Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5, for $9.99/mo has been extended through May 31, 2014.
There are no limitations for prior software ownership to join at this rate (as there have been in the past). You can sign up for the Photoshop Photography Program here on Adobe’s website.
(At the time of this post, Adobe’s site still has the offer end date as March 31; however, I have official confirmation from Adobe that the deal is extended through May 31.)
Adobe released its 2014 first quarter financial results last week, revealing $1 billion in revenue for the quarter and nearly 2 million Creative Cloud subscribers. Adobe gained 405,000 subscribers in the first quarter alone for a total of 1,844,000 total subscribers and growing. [Read more…]
Every now and then I have a good idea – or at least one that I think is good. Adobe is one of those companies that lets you take your “good ideas” straight to the product teams with a publicly available Feature Request Form.
I probably spend more time in Premiere Pro (the new Creative Cloud version) these days than any other Adobe application, with Lightroom, Media Encoder and Photoshop being next in the list. Premiere Pro is one application that has a truly useful Welcome screen; however, I think it could be better. [Read more…]
Adobe has announced a release candidate for Camera Raw 8.4, which adds support to several new cameras listed below. [Read more…]
And . . . we’re back to covering this again. Adobe has been teasing the exclusivity of its Photoshop Photography Program for a good 5 months now. Initially, it was only available to previous customers with a CS3 or higher license. Then, Adobe opened it up to everyone for a little bit. Then, closed it back to only CS3 and up customers. Then, opened it and closed it and . . . . ahhhhh!
For whatever Adobe’s reasons are, the deal is back on again and there are no limitations to subscribe. The deal is available to everyone until March 31, 2014. After that, who knows what Adobe plans to do.

Adobe is beating this dead horse into the ground. I have lost count of how many times the Photoshop Photography Program has been extended. This time, however, the deal is only available for those who own CS3 or later products, but the price remains $9.99/mo. And, yes, I do actually think this is a good deal, but Adobe is killing me with the on again/off again routine.
The Photoshop Photography Program offers access to Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 (plus respective feature updates and upgrades as they are available), 20GB of cloud storage and Behance ProSite, via Adobe Creative Cloud for $9.99/month as an annual subscription.
You can find more details here on Adobe’s website.
If you have been using Adobe Lightroom for very long, you might be in the situation where your image catalog has outlasted your current computer. Accordingly, when you upgrade your computer to something newer and faster, you will want to take advantage of that improved speed and begin using it for your image processing workflow. Of course, you also don’t want to lose access to all of the images you processed on your old computer.
Lightroom works by using catalogs that contain processing info related to the images in your Lightroom library. As such, the Lightroom catalog does not contain the actual photo files, but rather data concerning organizational and processing actions you’ve made while working with your photos inside Lightroom.
And simply plugging in a hard drive that contains all of your photos from your Lightroom library won’t carry over your final edits. As a result, you will want to take your Lightroom catalog along with you to the new computer. But how do you do that?
It’s a fairly straightforward process actually. Follow these steps and you will be able to pick up right where you left off with your old machine. [Read more…]
