Episode Summary

In this episode, Tom Hogarty, Adobe's group product manager for Lightroom, brings a sneak peek to the future of processing raw photos on a tablet. Although Tom wouldn't reveal a launch date for the new prototype he did demonstrate some of the features on an iPad, and also offered several details about its features:

  • • Editing for RAW photo formats, including Lightroom develop-module parameters like exposure, clarity, shadows, highlights, and white balance.
  • • Cloud-synchronized editing so that changes made on a tablet arrive on the same photo on the PC.
  • • The ability to zoom all the way to 100 percent for checking photo focus and details.

    Wi-Fi and a NAS. Wouldn’t that the same except with the benefit of also storing music and videos? Sending stuff out to the cloud is fine if you’re in a country with cheap internet plans but that’s not the case in all countries.

  5. Jack Hogan says:

    Photogs are not complaining about new cloud features, they are complaining about the ridiculous price.

    We used to upgrade PSCS every other cycle $199 every 4 years. That’s less than $5/month – where does $29.99 come from?

    Adobe is raping photographers. Time to look elsewhere.

    I dont care if I can get RAW previews on my ipad. What a stupid and useless “feature”

  11. terri pakula says:

    Sounds great for professional photographers and graphic artists…
    BUT for the hobby photographer who uses LR and or CS..can be awful. Many times new software updates will not run on older computers….As it is I buy a new computer every 3 years! Some of the macs are too costly to update like the Pro laptops…
    That really concerns me. During the Grid Tom even said he ran the beta on the ipad2….If Adobe develops it he will have to buy an ipad4…
    I also use my ipad2 for iphoneography etc…But main editing beyond that just my computer….
    Not everyone will have access to the internet all the time too…..
    I go south for the winter and don’t have internet where I stay……..Just At & T on the iPad and it is awful…….I run into Starbucks for anything I MUST email and that is aweful as anyone can hack me…….
    Not thrilled about this cloud as a hobby photographer……

  40. Nice show indeed. It’s funny to see Tom slipping some information he “shouldn’t” and holding back a big chunk! Is like “I came from the future, I know who’s gonna win the next Superball but I’m really not allowed to tell you!” hehehehe

    Tablet processing is a great thing. I personally don’t find myself comfortable with tablets yet, but it doesn’t harm at all! I might “get there” :-)

  41. Shawn H says:

    Always like the shows.

  42. WS says:

    Hi, great interview with Tom. So am I right to say that editing at the tablet will still be non destructive like lightroom? Eg. anything changes, I can go back to laptop/desktop and fine tune it?
    I can also flag/rate/delete any photos on tablet and these same action will be updated when I go to my workstation and start up my lightroom?

  43. Tom Good says:

    I was trying o figure out how to. Upgrade to CS 4,
    Thanks to the NAPP discount this really is a great deal

  44. Andrew says:

    Thanks guys. As always something more try and jam into my head.

  45. Sudheer says:

    wow…looking forward the lightroom app….Loved todays show

  46. Cathy says:

    Nice show…I just got started in Lightroom after attending Matts seminar last year. I really love the speed of it thanks for this great preview .

  47. miriam Rosenthal says:

    This all sounds well and good, but many of us purchased the upgrades to LR and CS6 last year. If those are the only apps we use, how does it make sense to start a monthly subscription to the Creative Cloud, even just the $20. PS subscription before the newest versions of the software are available? I haven’t heard anything about credit for the upgrades going toward subscription fees. And is LR going to be included in the less expensive subscription that cover just PS?
    And, will the trend be that the newest versions of PS will only be available by subscription in the future?
    Glad that Scott tried to move the conversation to what’s in it for photographers, but I’d like to know what is in it for established PS/LR customers who have kept current with their software?

  48. Jim Quinn says:

    This is a very interesting session. I am delighted to see Adobe is interested in satisfying the connectivity issues with all of our devices.

  49. Duane Duncan says:

    after paying for the upgrade to CS6 I find out that I needed to do the cloud for Photoshop

  51. William Chinn says:

    I hope that Adobe understands that if Android doesn’t have equal support to that i company there will be some disgruntled users who still don’t understand why we don’t have Kelby magazines after all this time.
