Lightroom Mobile Now Available for iPad

Lightroom mobile for iPad

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.

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.

Adobe’s $10/mo Photoshop + Lightroom Subsciption Deal is Back on for Everyone

Photoshop Photography Program

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.

You can sign up for the Photoshop Photography Program here on Adobe’s website.
