Lightroom 2.0 on Android Brings RAW Workflow to Mobile


FEBRUARY 22, 2016

By Greg Scoblete

While the iPhone has legions of fans in the photo community, Android users do get one big leg up: RAW photo capture in select Android phones running Android 5.0.

Adobe is leveraging that support in its 2.0 update to Lightroom for Android. 

Lightroom 2.0 for Android delivers several new features including an in-app camera that can capture RAW (DNG) format images and shoot-through presets so you can preview and capture images with non-destructive effects applied to them. To take advantage of this feature, your device needs to be running OPENGL ES 3.0, which is available on phones such as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5, S6 Edge+ and LG’s G4.

The updated Lightroom also delivers the dehaze tool, split toning enhancements that let you add a color cast to highlights and shadows and easier sharing with Adobe Premiere Clip. 

Other new tools include a point mode in the Curve tool to provide control over the tonality and contrast of an image.

Lightroom 2.0 is a free download in the Google Play store and is available now.
