Adobe Lightroom is a very popular software for photographers worldwide, and now it has expanded into mobile, reaching the iPad and set to hit the iPhone as well.

The software offers some great tools, not only allowing users to manage their RAW files, but also helping them develop photographs into their desired final form. Adobe Lightroom users have long been asking for a mobile version of the service, and Adobe finally started delivering.

Lightroom is now ready to hit mobile devices, starting with the iPad and coming soon to the iPhone. The Lightroom mobile app for the iPad is available as a free download, but there's a slight catch. Users will still need a Creative Cloud subscription in order to enjoy all features and functionality. With the membership, the app will be able to sync users' mobile data with the Lightroom 5 on the desktop desktop, which means that any changes made on the iPad will automatically sync on desktop in real time.

"Edit and organize images anywhere, anytime on your iPad (coming soon to iPhone. Enhance everything from smartphone photos to raw images from DSLR cameras using powerful and familiar tools. Automatically sync all your mobile edits with Adobe Lightroom 5 on your desktop. Easily share all your photos to social media sites. With Adobe Lightroom mobile, your photography is going places," touts Adobe.

Adobe Lightroom mobile allows users to handle RAW photos just as they do on the desktop version, as well as work with the images taken with their mobile device. The mobile app also includes the slew of tools available on the desktop, including presets, filters, and all other.

As previously mentioned, Adobe Lightroom mobile is now available as a free download for the iPad, but it requires a Creative Cloud subscription to unfold all of its treats. If you already have a subscription, you can download the app at this link. If not, a basic package for professional photographers is also available, but it will cost $9.99 per month.

Adobe did not mention when exactly its Lightroom mobile will become available for the iPhone as well, but said it is coming soon. In the meantime, you can check out the tutorials to get things started, or watch the video below to learn more about it.
