Adobe Lightroom is a photo editing software used by photographers all over the world, whether they are seasoned professionals or amateurs. Using this software is easy and fun even for beginners. You can edit your photos by organizing and adjusting settings such as brightness, contrast, saturation, sharpness, and much more. The layout is incredibly user-friendly. You can adjust settings the easy way with sliders and presets, or you can do things manually by inputting attributes and making graphical adjustments. The interface also has sharing ability that allows you to publish your work on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter at the push of a button. The mobile version of the software allows you to do all of this as well making for a fun and easy on-the-fly editing experience.

Until now the mobile version has only been available on iPhone devices-since June 2014- but now any Android user with at least Jellybean software can use Lightroom on the go. The program is functional on Android Tablets, however, it is not yet formatted correctly for them so the look is a bit strange. I’m sure that will get updated rather quickly though.

Anyone who wants to download the software must create an Adobe Creative Cloud account with a subscription plan of either $9.99 per month or $119.88 per year. Users must have this cloud service to sync photographs from their mobile device to their desktop version of Lightroom. If you do not have the desktop version of Lightroom you will need to get it. A free 30-day trial version is available on Adobe’s Website.

When a mobile Lightroom user edits a photo on their device they are using what Adobe calls a Smart Preview which uses much less memory-the desktop program uses a lot, allowing faster use and far fewer glitches. This allows photographers to do a quick edit on photos in the field so that they can preview them to customers before the long editing process takes place.

This app is a must-have for photographers who use Adobe Lightroom and own an Android Device.
