Adobe Updates Lightroom with 3D Touch Support for iOS

July 21, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Lightroom is Adobe’s photo-editing app for those who prefer more than just casual editing. Now, the free app is getting a bunch of handy upgrades on both Android and iOS.

The most exciting feature is the arrival of selective brush on the iOS version of Lightroom. The selective brush has been a feature that users have been longing for. With the update, users will now finally be able to perform selective enhancements of the image parts.

That’s not it, Adobe is also integrating 3D Touch support for its new tool. That would mean that users will be able to tweak the effects by simply altering the pressure they apply on screen. As for the iPads, the selective brush will come with support for the iPad Pencil.

Adobe has also added selective erasing of linear and radial gradients. Overexposed areas can now be directly viewed using the in-app camera with the new Show Highlight Clipping feature that has been added on iPhone.

The latter also receives a major redesign that takes more advantage of the larger screens. The new Details tab now offers more tools for fine-tuning their photographs. More controls for noise reduction and sharpening are also available. The exclusivity of the features to iPad is a reflection of Adobe’s realization that users are starting to prefer the bigger tablet versions over laptop counterparts.

Big changes have also been brought around for the Android version of the app. Adobe has seemingly re-build the Android version from the scratches to add performance and efficiency. It also has become more native to the Android ecosystem. Both the updates are now live on the respective app stores.
