Lightroom 5.4 is out, now with an iPad version...

So the latest version of Adobe Lightroom 5 is out. We're now up to version 5.4. With this brings the ability to edit RAW files in a number of new cameras including the Fuji X-T1. My normal RAW workflow can be returned!!!

Interestingly there is now an addition to the Lightroom desktop version. You can now download the Lightroom app for iPad so editing can be made "on the go". For me I don't see this becoming part of my workflow at present as I like the control and flexibility afforded by using the desktop application. Also iPad's are limited somewhat in space so a larger collection of images could be tricky to edit on, not to mention the fact that there's only 1GB of RAM available on the iPad so I'm slightly skeptical of the performance. One final caveat is that personal presets are not yet supported.

Adobe have decided to make the iPad app free for all current Creative Cloud (CC) Lightroom Subscribers. Those of us yet to jump on the CC services are expected to pay an extra fee for this app. Like I said before, for me this is not going to be particularly useful at the moment. Either way there will be plenty of excited people when they hear the news! You can check out more information by following the link below.
