raw lightroom iosFor the average photographer who just wants to capture images, shooting exclusively in JPEG is fine. However for photographers who are a bit more fussy about how their images turn out in post-processing might choose to shoot in RAW which gives them a greater degree of flexibility to make adjustments later.

However for the most part, RAW editing requires users to download their photos onto the computer, fire up an app like Adobe Lightroom in order to edit said file. The good news is that you want to edit on your phone on the spot, you’re in luck as Adobe has updated Lightroom to support RAW editing on your iPhone.

According to Adobe, this lets users edit their photos on the go and share them on social media right away if that’s something they want, or at least the option is there for them if they wish to take advantage of it. “With the raw technology preview, you’ll be able to import raw photos immediately to either your iPhone or iPad, edit them, and then share them, anywhere you’ve got a connection.”

As for the features, Adobe claims it will be the same as editing on the computer. “You get all of the benefits of raw, such as the ability to change the white balance, being able to recover blown out highlights, access to the full range of color information, as well as editing an uncompressed file.” If you have Lightroom on your computer, it will be able to sync what’s on your phone with your computer, so you don’t have to transfer it again later.
