Adobe brought us the first version of its Photoshop Lightroom image editor to Android a little over a year ago, and today the first major overhaul of Lightroom for Android is being released with version 2.0. Lightroom for Android 2 brings the mobile image editor up-to-speed with the iOS version of the same software, and actually goes a step further with a built-in camera that lets you capture DNG format RAW photos. The camera has built-in presets that let you apply non-destructive looks while framing and snapping shots.

Here’s everything new to expect in the new release:
  • An in-app camera, supporting the capture of images in DNG raw format
  • Shoot-through presets, also available within the in-app camera, enabling previewing and capturing images with a series of built-in presets providing non-destructive editing
  • Dehaze tool to adjust haze and fog in an image
  • Split Toning enhancement, enabling the addition of a color cast to the highlights and shadows of an image, creating a uniquely stylized color image or replicating the look and feel of a traditional toned black and white image
  • Target Adjustment Tool functionality in the Color/B&W editing tool, providing direct, on-image editing controls
  • Point mode in Curve tool providing complete control over the tonality and contrast of an image
  • Enhanced sharing with one-tap access to Adobe Premiere Clip for crafting video stories.

Grab Adobe Lightroom 2 from the Google Play Store

Once you’ve captured a photo, there are powerful tools at your disposal for post-processing the work, from Dehaze for adjusting haze and fog to Split Toning to add color casts to the highlights and shadows.

The Curve tool has a Point mode that gives you precise control over the contrast and tonality of any shot, and the Color/B&W editing panel has a Target Adjustment Tool that puts editing controls on your image for precise adjustments.

Other features include copying and pasting settings between photos, a star rating system for editing a collection of shots, and more.

Wow, this looks like it works a lot better than I'd have assumed.
