Adobe has just released the new RAW HDR capture mode in its Lightroom Mobile application, for both Android and iOS. It will be compatible by now for a number of mobile devices due to the demands of its processing algorithm it will offer images of the highest quality. The devices supported to date are the Samsung S7 and S7 Edge, Google Pixel and Pixel XL, plus iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, iPhone SE and iPad Pro.
Adobe explains that the new capture mode allows you to first scan the scene to determine the correct exposure range and then make three DNG shots that will later be combined into a single DNG file. Point out that the HDR technology integrated in this application is the same as that available in the Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom applications on the desktop, offering the same quality, hence the limit of availability to a series of mobile devices with more powerful hardware.
The company assures that until now, other applications do not capture the full range of tones of the scene itself that has difficult lighting, arriving at most to make two captures to generate a JPG HDR file.
Lightroom Mobile users who are also Creative Cloud subscribers will have the added advantage of automatically synchronizing files with the Lightroom version for the desktop.
In addition to the new capture mode, both the Android and iOS version of Lightroom Mobile will also have other features, such as the availability of local adjustments tools with linear and radial gradients for Android, the possibility of exporting originals, the gestures of qualification and revision, among others. In addition to the usual corrections and improvements of stability in both versions, which already are available through the respective application store.
