iOS 10 has the iPhone users on top of the world. There are many extraordinary features being offered in this new update by Apple. Amidst all the exciting new features, the best news that comes to professional and amateur photographers, alike, is the introduction of Adobe Lightroom. iPhone users with iOS 10 update can install Adobe Lightroom from the App Store and also click pictures from the same app. These pictures are going to be captured in RAW format and be saved in the phone with raw .dng.
In their statement, Adobe announced: “Having a true end-to-end raw workflow, powered by DNG and Lightroom, on your iPhone and iPad makes it possible to create absolutely stunning photos that, until a few years ago, could only have been done with a traditional camera.”
If you’re into photography, then you’d know that editing and tweaking images becomes slightly easier when they are in RAW as you can have more control over white balance and more.
The statement said: “The beauty of using RAW is that you have the ability to revisit all of those settings after the shot has been captured to a degree that isn’t possible with other file formats.”
“In contrast, once you take a photo using the JPEG file format, certain aspects like white balance, sharpening, and noise reduction cannot be edited – they are set forever.” Thomas Knoll, the creator of Photoshop, said on an online post.
However, there is a bit of a catch. Only those iPhone users who have installed iOS 10 to their gadgets and have a 12-megapixel camera with their Apple iPhones can install Adobe Lightroom and use it. The list of Apple gadgets that can avail of the benefits of this new update are iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPad Pro 9.7, and the newly launched iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Android users were able to install Adobe Lightroom since February this year. On the other hand, Apple users could capture images in RAW since July. The team at Adobe has also promised to introduce another update in accordance with the new sensors of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
