Adobe updates Lightroom for iOS with Apple Pencil and 3D Touch support

By July 19, 2017Design, News

Adobe pushed out some pretty substantial updates to its Photoshop Lightroom iOS apps today that contain support for Apple’s Pencil stylus and 3D Touch finger editing. Now, if you’re using Lightroom on an iPad Pro with the Pencil, you can apply pressure with the tip of the device to selectively apply changes to brightness, exposure, and other settings. Adobe is calling this the Brush Selection tool, and it also works on iPhones with 3D Touch. Just press harder with your finger on the screen over the desired area to achieve the same effect.

Lightroom is also getting a few design tweaks to make it easier to use. You can now change sharpness and noise reduction more easily from the detail tab, and the app has been redesigned to have a more sensible layout on the iPad. For iPhones, Lightroom now features an in-app camera mode that will automatically tell you which parts of an image are over-exposed so you can compensate with changes in exposure in-frame before you capture. On top of these iOS improvements, Adobe also announced a fully redesigned Android version of Lightroom out today, with an Android-native interface.
