Adobe just released some important changes to its Lightroom app as this saw a redesign in its Android variant and is getting new features on the iOS one.
iPhone and iPad users will soon be seeing an added support for the Android selective brush as well as updated interface for iPad, among others. But the biggest changes were brought to the Android Lightroom app.
Although an efficient version, this was touted as being a mobile version of the desktop experience. Now, thanks to the redesign, users may start using a version that actually feels native for mobile, and snappy enough for it, according to some.
Lightroom App Redesigns Should Make Them Easier to Use
Adobe released a statement which declared that: “We wanted to provide the best Android experience possible so we redesigned Lightroom for Android from the ground up to be faster, more efficient, and, well, more Android-y.”
This continued by pointing out that every screen of the app has been redesigned so that they will ensure a native, natural experience on Android. These should also help provide the highest quality in editing and a “professional-grade mobile photo editing app”.
Still, according to reports, it will still take some time before Android users will be able to use features such as the Selective Brush or the Details tab. This latter gives the editor a global control over noise reduction and sharpening. The Selective Brush will come to complement the readily available radial and linear gradients.
Both these features arrived first on iOS and will probably make their debut on Android a while later.
The Android variant is not the only one to get a new face, as the iPad version interface was also redesigned. This could be a way of taking advancing of a larger screen without losing its performance.
