Adobe Announces Photoshop Mix; Lightroom for iPhone

IMG_1315

Adobe is today announcing a couple of new products and an update to their Creative Cloud service. What you should know first off is that Lightroom Mobile has finally been ported to the Apple iPhone. When it was originally announced, a user could only use it on their iPad.

They’re also revamping their Photography Creative Cloud plan. The price is still $9.99/month, but now bundles together Photoshop CC, Lightroom, Lightroom Mobile and a brand new product–Photoshop Mix. Photoshop Mix is a free (yes, free) app that is available for download in the App store. The new software is designed to be a hub of sorts for all of your images–whether they’re in the Creative Cloud, Lightroom Mobile, and Facebook. What it lets you do is some of the most simple editing you can possibly think of: like spot color, apply presets, basic Lightroom sliders, and some other features utilizing the brush tool that we only wish were present in Lightroom.

Photoshop Mix also lets you do things like compositing and touch ups to ensure that the image looks the best that it can. At one point of our demo, we also saw the use of content aware fill. For all this, it seems like Adobe is giving away a whole lot for no price at all.

Lightroom Mobile is getting an update that now involves the inclusion of star ratings–which still syncs between Lightroom and the app.

All of this is available now for download. As of today, Adobe has Photoshop CC, Photoshop Mobile, Photoshop Touch, and now CC.
