Adobe Lightroom for iPad Launches, iPhone Version Coming Soon [u]

Photographers, you’re going to like this—Adobe has launched Lightroom for iPad, which will allow users to edit and organize images on the go, with edits being synced to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 on your desktop. Images synced to Lightroom Mobile will not affect the 20GB cloud storage for Creative Cloud users.

Users will be able to edit smartphone images, RAW DSLR images and pretty much any image format. Lightroom mobile creates and syncs Smart Previews between your desktop and iPad, which means your original images remain intact and safe.
