This week I walk you through everything you need to know to get started with Adobe Lightroom Mobile on the iPad and iPhone. At first glace, you might think that Lightroom Mobile is a bit gimmicky, but it’s actually quite powerful, and is an excellent tool for showcasing your work for friends and family, and clients alike. I think Adobe have really hit it out of the park with this excellent addition to their Creative Cloud suits.
The video says it all, so I won’t go into detail on Lightroom Mobile here, but I do just want to say that it’s impressive, and I hope you take the time to watch the video. I’m always looking for great ways to showcase my work, and this is definitely one of them. As I say towards the end of the video, the only things this product leaves me wanting for, is the ability to sync and play videos, and the ability to customize a splash screen, with a photo and my logo, so that I can basically implement a bit of branding.
The Lightroom mobile app is free from the iTunes App Store, but to use it you will require one of the following Creative Cloud membership plans (from the Adobe Web site as of July 2014).
- Creative Cloud Photography plan
- Photoshop Photography Program
- Creative Cloud complete plan
- Creative Cloud Student and Teacher Edition
- Creative Cloud for teams complete plan
Adobe says, if you have access to Lightroom 5 via your Creative Cloud membership, then you have access to Lightroom mobile. See details of on the Adobe Web site, or download the apps from the iTunes App Store here.
Don’t forget to hit the fullscreen button so that you can see all the details!
