Adobe Lightroom Mobile app for Android and iOS has been updated with support for a brand new RAW HDR capture mode. Adobe Lightroom Mobile is Now much Better than Ever, and the credit for this goes to its New RAW HDR Capture Support
If you also love shooting RAW photos just like me on your iPhone or Android device, then look no further than the fantastic Adobe Lightroom Mobile app. Let me inform you that apart from allowing users to take beautiful photos, there are many more powerful tools at everyone’s disposal, allowing for richer edits and whatnot.
As well built and powerful the app may seem, we thought that there was no room for improvement at all. But boy has Adobe surprised everyone with their latest update to the app for both Android and iOS. Apart from bringing in the plethora of improvements as is, the star of the show is without a doubt support for shooting RAW HDR photos. The surprising news for you is that This allows richer images to be taken that was only possible using a mirrorless or DSLR camera.
We are very much excited to announce that Lightroom Mobile now has a brand new raw HDR capture mode that lets you achieve that dynamic range on your mobile device that was previously possible only by shooting with a mirrorless or DSLR camera.
Let me tell you that with the new RAW HDR mode, as soon as you hit that shutter button, the app will automatically take three images in succession in different ranges. They are then appropriately toned up by the app, aligned by the app, and then, of course, a final 32-bit DNG image is generated. Also, you can make edits on the final image as well. That’s what RAW / DNG is all about.
You get a 16-bit floating point DNG, with all of the benefits of both a raw photo and an HDR, which is processed by the same algorithms with the same quality as the HDR technology built into Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom.
Last but not the least, the Lightroom now has a new widget that pops up whenever you 3D Touch on its app icon. You get three options – first is launch the camera directly, second is take a selfie, and the third is view the last taken photo.
The Adobe Lightroom Mobile app is free as ever, and you can download it for both iOS and Android devices.
