A powerful Adobe photo editor on your mobile device

Adobe is clearly the undisputed champion of apps and software when it comes to photos editing. They have amazing products with powerful features that every photo editor will appreciate. From Photoshop’s multipurpose photo manipulation features to Illustrator’s more creative design leanings, each product has its own forte. Adobe Lightroom is the one professional photographers turn to for its highly varied image editing options. Adobe Lightroom CC for Android is a powerful version that users can take on the go.

Set-up and Aesthetics

Setting up the app is a fairly straightforward process. All users need to do is to download and install it. There’s no need to install any other app or download additional materials to get it working. One minor thing to note about Lightroom, or any Adobe app for that matter, is that it requires an account before proceeding. Users can create an Adobe account or they can use their Facebook or Google accounts instead. 

Adobe Lightroom has a simple interface, although much of the editing functions are hidden until you open a photo. Instead, the first screen only shows your photo library. There is a section where you can access all of your photos, and below that is a section for the photo albums you can make. At the top of the screen, users can access a tab where all of the photos they’ve shared to the web can be found.

The photo editing interface is also quite easy to understand. Once the user has selected a photo, the editing interface will open. At the top is the photo, and at the bottom of the screen is a toolbar with icons. Clicking on a toolbar icon will prompt more menus and options.

Features and Premium

The editing features of Lightroom are probably among the most advanced in the market, although it does tend to focus more on color adjustment than photo-manipulation. Users will be able to adjust the colors, contrast, temperature, and tint of their photos. They can also edit the vibrancy and saturation of the images. They can even sharpen and dehaze images to give them a higher-quality finish.

For people who want to go the extra mile, Lightroom also has several premium features that make it even better. Among these premium features is the revolutionary Adobe Sensei. Adobe Sensei automatically identifies certain elements in your photos like people and locations in order to tag and sort them for you. Needless to say, if you take a lot of photos, having this around is a massive time-saver. The healing brush, fix perspective and selective adjustment features are also available only with premium. Finally, premium also provides users with cloud storage so that you can access your photos anytime, anywhere.

Amazing Photo Editor

Adobe Lightroom CC is a powerful image editor, and the free version has enough options for casual photographers. For more experienced photographers, however, investing in premium might be a good idea since it provides users with much more advanced features and functions. But whether you get premium or not, Adobe Lightroom is a great free app for any photo editor.
