Adobe Lightroom for iOS updated with authentic HDR capture, raw exporting, widget and more

9to5 Mac:

Adobe has released a new version of Photoshop Lightroom for iOS that includes more powerful tools for shooting on the iPhone. Authentic HDR is a new mode that rivals competing high-dynamic-range methods. Version 2.7 also includes exporting raw images and a new widget for 3D Touch and the Today view in Notification Center.

Authentic HDR, or raw HDR, is a new capture mode that Adobe says “combines the benefits of HDR technology and DNG raw” and “automatically analyzes a scene to determine the appropriate spread of exposure values over three shots, then automatically aligns, de-ghosts, and tone maps the image, creating a 32-bit floating point DNG file.”

I don’t use Adobe Lightroom for iOS often (I prefer to edit on my iMac) but I have used it to demo the power of the app and the iPad to others. There’s a lot of capability in the free app and, when coupled with a Creative Cloud subscription, it becomes a surprisingly full-featured iOS editing app.
