Adobe Lightroom 2.2 for Android adds full RAW support in preview form
Android users of Adobe’s Lightroom image editing app can now try out a “technology preview” that includes support for full RAW files. The preview is included in the latest 2.2 version of the Android app in the Google Play Store.
With this new RAW support, Lightroom users on Android will be able to take, edit and share images in that format inside the app. Any RAW files on the app can also be synced up with Lightroom apps on the PC and other devices. Abobe added:
Users 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, all using the exact same technology that powers Lightroom on the desktop.
In addition to the RAW file preview, version 2.2 of Lightroom on Android adds the ability to connect a camera directly to a smartphone or tablet with a USB On-The-Go (OTG) cable, so you can import any RAW files on the camera directly to the device. Will you be using this new version of the app now that it has full RAW support?
