A handful of big photo announcements came out of Adobe's presentation on Wednesday. - See all my Adobe related announcement updates yesterday
- Lightroom mobile is now available on iPhones (as well as iPads) and allows editing, star rating and flagging of your Lightroom Catalog. Any changes you make to images on any device- phone, tablet, desktop- are synced to all other devices. I have previously demoed the Lightroom mobile editing. No word or mention of any Android development for these apps.
- The $9.99/mo deal is here to stay - You get Photoshop and Lightroom CC - which means as updates happen you get them, along with 2GB of online storage (this is down from the 20GB offered in the more expensive packages) If you are currently paying for the more expensive plan you can downgrade at no penalty.
- The focus masking features which we talked about in last week's podcast looks nifty and useful.
- Adobe has released a new app for the iPad - Photoshop Mix. Call it an image manipulation tool, not quite an editor though it does offer some neat compositing and layer like abilities. It is free and is capable of syncing with Lightroom collections as well as your camera roll. Get Photoshop Mix from iTunes
