A benefit of having an 11-acre front yard is when Lightroom Mobile gets an update, I can step off the front porch. Winter skipping a year also helps.

If you have auto-updates enabled in your settings, you should have the latest version of Lightroom Mobile on your iOS or Android device. There is a base level of device you need. iOS users should be using an iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, SE, or iPad Pro 9.7.” Android, you need the Samsung S7, S7 Edge, Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

The app automatically analyzes a scene for a three-exposure bracket, aligns, de-ghosts and tone maps into a raw DNG file. Right on Adobe. I still prefer Lightroom on a desktop, but damn if the mobile app isn’t becoming more useful.

Lightroom Update

The update didn’t stop at the Raw HDR addition. On iOS, prepare to enjoy better sync speed (definitely noticeable) and stability, Force Touch, background sync and upload, and the ability to export original DNG files.

Android users will also enjoy radial and linear gradient adjustments.

It’s a slick update and speaks to the power of smartphone photography. Not trading in my DSLR, but there’s no denying the type of pictures you can capture via an iPhone or other flagship smartphones. Adobe has a post up with the full release notes. If you don’t have auto updates enabled, head over to the App Store or Google Play store to download the update.
