Lightroom 2.0 For Android is World’s First RAW Photography App

February 23rd, 2016

Adobe have recently released a new version of the Lightroom app for Android, and among other things, Lightroom on Android 2.0 happens to be the world’s first end-to-end RAW mobile photography app.

In other words, Lightroom 2.0 lets you shoot, edit and share RAW/DNG photos using your Android smartphone or tablet.

So far, Lightroom has been a simple app for photo editing, but this new version comes with an in-built camera that can capture DNG format RAW photos. The camera has presets of its own, that you can apply to your images.

Here is what Lightroom 2.0 for Android has to offer:

  • An in-app camera, capable of capturing raw images in DNG format
  • Custom presets available within the in-app camera
  • Non-destructive photo editing
  • Dehaze tool to adjust haze and fog in images
  • Better sharing with one-tap access to Adobe Premiere Clip
  • Tools to adjust contrast and brightness of images
  • Target adjustments tools
  • On-image editing controls
  • Split-toning enhancements, to adjust blur and shadows

The app requires Android version 4.1 and above, and some of the custom presets will require OpenGL 3.0 support.

You can download the Lightroom 2.0 for Android app here.

Going to try this out on my LG G4. Shooting raw photo’s is great, because of the flexibility!
