Comments Comments

In its latest update to Lightroom Mobile, Adobe has announced the app now allows smartphone shooters to capture and edit raw HDR images.

As well as editing Adobe DNG raw files on iOS and Android devices, image sharing is possible and the app also features a pro capture mode.

According to Adobe, Lightroom Mobile's new HDR mode works by scanning scenes before working out correct exposure. When the shot is taken the app saves three DNG files which are automatically aligned, merged, deghosted, and tonemapped.

The resulting HDR image is a 16-bit floating point DNG, processed by the same algorithms as used for HDR in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom.

Creative Cloud members can synch images with their desktop for later backing up or home editing in Lightroom.

For iOS users, the HDR mode requires a device that can capture in DNG, such as an iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, iPhone SE, or iPad Pro 9.7″.

The latest updates, version 2.7 for iOS and version 2.3 for Android offer the HDR mode for free.
