Adobe Lightroom Mobile app launched for Android

Adobe has been steadily busying itself with migrating its photography-centric software to mobile platforms, and as is common it first turned its sights on iOS. Speaking of Lightroom in particular, the company first brought the mobile version to the iPad, then made it available for the iPhone, as well. Now the wait for Android users has finally reached its end, with Adobe launching the app in the Google Play Store on Wednesday. As with the desktop version, Lightroom mobile lets users edit photographs.

Of course, you won’t get all the functionality in Lightroom mobile that you get with the desktop version, with Adobe bidding it instead as a companion option. Users will need a Creative Cloud membership (PPP, student and teacher edition, etc., are all supported).

Those who don’t have a membership can still download Lightroom mobile for free and use it for 30 days before deciding if they want to proceed. With the software, users can edit RAW images from their DSLR or photos snapped with their phone’s camera using various tools and presets.

Those who have used the mobile version of Adobe Photoshop to edit images will find Lightroom familiar in certain design-centric ways, but with more robust functionality tailored towards editing the look of your images more so than anything else.
