Is Adobe going to launch a Lightroom version for tablets, specifically for Apple’s iPad? It appears that an official launch is planned for the coming weeks. More after the break.
All this leaked after references to Lightroom for Mobile appeared on Adobe’s official website at the beginning of this week The reference was immediately removed when 9to5mac discovered it and contacted the company for more details.
Adobe’s tagline for the product is “Take Lightroom anywhere,” but we were unable to locate screenshots of the application on Adobe’s website. The website also does not specifically note iPad support, but a chat representative from Adobe was able to pull up details about Lightroom for Mobile from Adobe’s systems and said that it is built for iPad.
The representative further indicated that the mobile version would largely lineup with the desktop version in terms of features
One user was even able to put the order, but the app is not yet available.
Besides the ability to manage large photos, one of the marquee features of Lightroom for iPad will be its ability to synchronize via Adobe’s Creative Cloud system with Lightroom on other devices (like a Mac or PC). We understand, that in addition to the Lightroom iPad App Store download, there will be a subscription for syncing Lightroom photos in the cloud. As seen in the top image, this will be a $99 yearly fee.
This is not the first time that rumors suggest Adobe is working on an iPad version of their popular software. There has even been a demo some time ago (see screenshot and video below).[via PR]
