Adobe today launched Lightroom on Android 2.0, the world’s first end-to-end RAW mobile photography solution. It’s an app that lets you shoot, edit, and share RAW/DNG photos using an Android smartphone.
While Lightroom is more known for being a solution for photo editing, this new app version brings a built-in camera that lets you capture DNG format RAW photos. The camera has built-in presets that let you apply non-destructive looks while framing and snapping shots.
Once you’ve captured a photo, there are powerful tools at your disposal for post-processing the work, from Dehaze for adjusting haze and fog to Split Toning to add color casts to the highlights and shadows.
The Curve tool has a Point mode that gives you precise control over the contrast and tonality of any shot, and the Color/B&W editing panel has a Target Adjustment Tool that puts editing controls on your image for precise adjustments.
Other features include copying and pasting settings between photos, a star rating system for editing a collection of shots, and more.
Here are some before-and-after photos showing straight-out-of-camera photos alongside final edited shots that have been processed with different tools in Lightroom for Android 2.0:
