Adobe Lightroom Mobile and Lightroom Desktop Updates

If you're using Adobe Lightroom Mobile or Lightroom Desktop, there are a few things that you should know to maximize your photo editing experience. Here are the most important updates. Learn how to use Photoshop ACR, Group Albums, and more. And remember, your photo editing experience is never complete without these updates! We'll walk you through these features in the next section! And don't forget to download the latest version of Lightroom Mobile to take advantage of all its new features.

Lightroom Mobile

To use the Presets in Lightroom, you must first install them on your Lightroom desktop application or your mobile device. Once the presets are installed, they automatically sync with your mobile device. If you are using a mobile phone, however, you should install them on your computer first. To do so, follow the instructions below. If you don't have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, you can download the latest version of Lightroom from the Adobe website.

With this new version, you can use the presets to edit photos in a variety of styles. The Clean Pop Collection, for example, adds airy, vibrant colors to your photos. It's the perfect style for portraits, travel, and creative images. You can also use the Clean Pop Collection on Lightroom mobile to give your pictures a cleaner, professional look. Lightroom desktop and mobile now have a new Recommended Presets feature that automatically searches tens of thousands of presets using cloud-based artificial intelligence. This feature also has a GPS field to display the location of the selected picture.

When using the new version of Lightroom, make sure to back up your old photos before you use them. If the files in your mobile device are bigger than your cloud storage, you won't be able to sync them across devices. However, you can continue to import, edit, and export your photos from Lightroom classic. However, the new version of Lightroom is more stable and faster than the previous version.

Lightroom Desktop

When you sync Lightroom desktop and mobile, you can easily share your edits and presets across the platforms. Lightroom for mobile also supports XMP for faster file loading. It supports tool presets. The new version of Lightroom supports XMP syncing. You can use Lightroom on your iPad for sharing your edits. It syncs images, edits and presets with both desktop and mobile.

To import presets from Photoshop ACR to Lightroom, first select an image from the library and press the Presets tab. Press the three dots icon and then select Import Presets. Locate the ZIP file where you downloaded the presets and import it. You can also select a file or several files to import. After importing the ZIP file, all imported Presets will appear in a new group in the Presets tab.

Range masks are another important new feature in Lightroom. These previously only worked in Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw. With the new release, the range mask feature is available for both desktop and mobile. The new version also includes machine learning-powered smart selection tools, such as Select Subject and Select Sky. The new range masks are nondestructive. You can view the basic UI of Masking in the screenshots below. You can also see how to build a complex mask by referring to an example.

If you're not ready to upgrade to Lightroom Mobile, you can continue using the classic version. It's still available in the Creative Cloud, but no longer supports one-time-purchase software. Lightroom Classic CC is now available for US$9.99/month. While this new version doesn't support a perpetual license, users will still have access to all their photos on their local hard drive. Then you can import, organize and export your photos using the Export feature.

Photoshop ACR

The new version of Adobe's Lightroom software brings a wide variety of improvements, including new features like Crop Overlays, improved loading times, and more. Lightroom mobile and desktop can work together, too. You can use Lightroom to edit your pictures and import your favorite digital photos. This new version also includes support for the latest versions of Photoshop ACR. It is highly recommended that you try out the new software before you buy it.

Both Lightroom and Photoshop are powerful image editing applications. The Lightroom mobile and desktop versions are compatible with Photoshop ACR, making them a perfect match for any photographer. Lightroom has a simple interface with easy-to-use sliders and filters, and a variety of presets that make editing your photographs a breeze. Photoshop, on the other hand, lets you blend and spray paint images and create stunning effects.

A recent update to Adobe Lightroom brings several new features. The most significant is the inclusion of AI-powered masking tools. Previously, when you made edits in the Develop module, each of these operations would be saved to the XMP sidecar file every time you changed the active image selection. Now, every edit operation will be saved in a single go. The new version also includes range masks.

Group Albums

When you share an album, others can view it and contribute photos. You can share the album via email or click 'Share' on the album's shareable button in the main menu. To share a group album with another person, you must have permission from the owner. You can delete the photo after 48 hours of its creation. You can also download photos from the shared group album.

The next time you want to organize your photographs, use the grouping function. When you create a group album, Lightroom will show photos in the catalog panel, folders in the Folders panel, and albums as collections in the Collections panel. Lightroom will not create a new album if the name of the existing album already exists. When choosing Add to Album as New, make sure to specify a different name for the group. You can also check the My Photos panel and make sure the folder you want to create is a folder, if that is the case.

Local adjustment presets

In the Lightroom Mobile & desktop apps, you can import and use Local Adjustment presets to tweak your images. These presets are located in a different folder than global ones. You can access them by clicking the three-dot (...) menu on top of the Brush panel. To import a Local Adjustment preset, you must first name it.

If you're new to Lightroom, you can hide local adjustment presets by unchecking the checkbox next to the presets folder. However, you can't delete them. Lightroom will not recognize them unless you move or rename them. However, you can manually install local adjustment presets or brushes. Just follow the instructions to install them.

For more detailed instructions, you can visit the Photoshop website. Similarly, Adobe also has a list of compatible cameras. The iPhone 5S and the Canon EOS R have full tethering support. Once you have a camera that supports tethering, you can browse suggested presets to see which ones best suit your photos. And don't forget to check out the free Premium Presets for Photoshop as well.

Premium Presets are updated on a regular basis. You can also browse presets by subject and see which ones are similar. The Recommended Presets section shows you what presets other people have saved. If you're new to Lightroom, Premium Presets are a good way to get started. The price is right. It's well worth the subscription!

RAW support

Adobe has updated Photoshop to CC, and now it includes AI-powered tools. New features include range masks, a gradient vector-based tool, and brush and gradient tools. The new Super Resolution tool doubles the image's width, contrast, and height. Mask Groups let you use multiple masking tools at once, and they work on Lightroom Desktop as well.

You can also use the mobile version of Lightroom to edit RAW files. A RAW file is a highly compressed, uncompressed version of a photograph, so you may want to use a generic version called a DNG. DNG files are widely available and can be captured with just about any smartphone. To create a DNG file, open Lightroom Camera and choose the file type as "DNG." Your RAW files will automatically save in the mobile version of Lightroom Mobile.

After making a selection, click the open image button on the top-most layer. This opens the image in Photoshop. If you have a Photoshop preset installed, select it by holding down the shift key. Once you've done this, the image will be opened in Photoshop as a smart object. You can then select the camera raw filter to apply your desired adjustments to it.
