Today’s on Kelby’s Show, Tom Hogarty, a product manager for Adobe demoed a prototype/alpha/may-never-see-the-light-of-day app that provides photographers a way to edit RAW files with many of the develop modules we love in Lightroom and the ability to rate, sort, flag etc. Cool and then. . . all of this would be synced through the cloud to your master library!! That would be awesome. I now imagine myself relaxing, a high resolution tablet on my lap, swiping through photos, rating, pinching to zoom and check focus and quickly dealing with a large number of photos in a smooth, efficient and comfortable manner. I might be getting ahead of myself here – there was no release date and no mention that this was even definitively scheduled as a product that is coming to market.

I queued the video to start where they begin discussing the app.

In Related News – I get asked all the time for photo editing software options and my answer 90% of the time is Lightroom. It is approachable program though I wouldn’t necessarily call it beginner friendly that offers a ton of power, maybe three tons! But there are times that people what a more photoshop like experience and Mac users have an option that was recently update and very affordable, Acorn– Until the end of this month it is being offered for $29, that is a lot easy to swallow than the hundreds Photoshop costs.  There are of course many things Photoshop can do that Acorn can’t but I am betting for 90% of you photographers out there, Acorn combined with Lightroom will handle almost all your needs.AcornImageEditor

Window’s users feeling left out – I have been playing around with http://pixlr.com/ It is browser based but certainly capable and the interface doesn’t look all that different from Acorn. And of course since it is browser based it is available to anyone.
