Lightroom Finally Adds Direct Import and Advanced Export on iOS



Lightroom Finally Adds Direct Import and Advanced Export on iOS

Adobe announced its December updates today to its photography apps and it includes one of the most significant changes, something the fans have waiting for too long. The company showed off in a sneak peek video last month which they called it “seamless” import. Now users have the option to import photos on Lightroom for iOS and iPadOS. With the iOS and iPad 13.2 now you can import RAW files into Lightroom from cameras and memory cards.

In the previous versions to import photos to Lightroom, users had to transfer photos to the iPad camera roll, then Lightroom and again then deleting the photos from camera roll to save space. With the new change, users will able to bypass the iOS camera roll entirely and import it in a single step. Users have been demanding this feature since Lightroom debuted for iOS but was delayed until the iPad could support external storage connectivity.

Earlier this year, the company added a workaround via a Siri shortcut that could import photos from the camera roll and then delete them from the camera roll. But today’s update makes the feature official.

The iOS and iPadOS devices will further get an advance export feature that was made available to Android and ChromeOS devices in November. It gives the user the ability to export multiple photos as original, DNG, JPEG and TIF files with additional customization features like metadata change, watermarks, file names, output sharpening and color space, says Tom Hogarty, Adobe’s Product Manager.

Additional features in the update include the ability to add photos to shared Lightroom albums via web, desktop and mobile. The company has compiled the full list of improvements to Lightroom Classic, Lightroom CC and Camera RAW on its blog.
