Photoshop maker Adobe today issued a series of updates to Lightroom for iPhone and iPad, Lightroom CC and Adobe Camera Raw, adding several new features for photographers, including refreshed Edit and Capture interfaces, a new info section and a brand new Professional mode.

Lightroom for iPhone and Lightroom for iPad are available free on the App Store. The Lightroom CC 2015.8 update and Adobe Camera Raw 9.8 are available from Adobe.

The new one-handed Edit interface in Lightroom for iPhone, a major departure from the old one, makes it easy to find and access image-editing tools, as well as quickly enhance and edit images from the palm of your hand.

“With this update, Adobe built ways of expanding the interface so that additional groups of functionality could be added in, such as the often-requested ability to add in titles, captions and copyright from mobile devices,” note the firm.

Lightroom’s new capture interface resembles that in Lightroom for Android, giving you access to a new Professional mode that provides control over all aspects of your camera’s exposure and focus with comprehensive RAW format support on iOS 10.

And in the new Info section, you can add a title, caption and copyright to your images.

Lightroom CC 2015.8, seen below, introduces a new Reference view, which lets you compare two different images to make them visually consistent via the Develop Module.

The update also sports improvements to performance, zoom to fit and zoom to fill.
