Adobe brought proper RAW support to Lightroom for iOS earlier this year and while the move was welcomed, Android users were left out because the company said this feature would arrive for them at a later date. They had to make do with the DNG RAW format, until today. Adobe has sent out a new update that brings full RAW support to Lightroom for Android. The wait is finally over for users on Google’s mobile platform.
Adobe has updated Lightroom mobile for Android today with a technology preview of full RAW support. This enables users to hook up a camera directly to an Android smartphone or tablet, provided that they have the relevant cables, and access their RAW images directly. It makes things so much easier for people who want to work with RAW images on the fly.
Not only that, users will also be able to edit full-resolution RAW images with Adobe Lightroom mobile for Android. The company has said that the mobile app is going to work with all file formats that are supported by the desktop version. The tools will allow users to edit white balance, see detailed color information, edit uncompressed files, and more.
Any and all files imported into Adobe Lightroom mobile for Android will automatically be synced across all versions of the app so that users can find their images on any device they use to access Lightroom. The updated app is now live and available for download from the Google Play Store.
