As you might know, I am an advocate for Snapseed, Google’s free image editing tool for mobile devices. But when Adobe announced yesterday that Lightroom Mobile for Android 1.4 is now available for free (following the iOS version going free in October already) I simply had to give the App a try. After all, the Lightroom desktop version is THE photo software par excellence built with Adobe Photoshop technology.
After playing around for an hour, I decided to place the freshly installed Lightroom Mobile directly beside the indispensable Snapsee App — what a great addition to my all time favorite editing tool!
As you can imagine, Adobe’s mobile version of Lightroom does not cover all aspects that the (paid) desktop version covers. Which is completely fine! It still gives you a good amount of handy tools to get hooked on if you love to post-process your (mobile) photos on your iOS or Android device.
I strongly recommend to get the App and have a look yourself. Even without any tutorial it is very intuitive and easy to use if you are not completely new to mobile editing.
These are the 3 Lightroom Mobile features which I personally consider as neat addition to all the wonderful editing options Snapseed already comes with:
- White Balance
- Noise Reduction*
