The Week Instagram soon on Windows phone: Report The Week A rumor is circulating that the photo-editing and sharing application Instagram, which currently exists across Android and iOS, is coming to Windows mobile OS on June 26.
While it may have taken around three years to do so, Adobe is finally giving a sneak-peek at some high-end photo-editing software for the iPad. The app previewed – which seemed to be quite in the beta stages – would be something along the lines of an iPad equivalent of Lightroom, obviously a bit limited with editing, due to horsepower constraints. Tom Hogarty, product manager for Lightroom, previewed an early prototype of the application on Scott Kelby's The Grid.
There's no promise as to when the app will ship or how it will fit into their current RAW image workflow right now, but for now, I'm sure many – myself included – are happy to see a working prototype. Below is a list spelled out by CNET as to some details Hogarty laid out.
• The ability to edit photos taken in 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.
Another quote worth noting is in reference to his own, personal desire to be able to sort, flag, and/or reject photos within the app. To this, he said "I spend couple hours computing on the train," he said "I'd love to be able to sort and select images."
Adobe seems to be stepping up their game more and more, especially since the rise of Creative Cloud and seeing their actually working on apps for organizing and editing RAW images on-the-go is another step in the right direction. One possibility I can think of as to how Adobe can minimize CPU strain on mobile devices (which in turn drains the battery faster) is to utilize a feature they're implementing into Lightroom 5, which is "Smart Previews." From our news article on the Lightroom 5 beta:
"This feature creates smaller, lossy .DNG images of your full-sized RAW files on your computer, keeping them as previews in a cache of sort."
If they were to include this ability in the application, you could edit a smaller, iPad optimized .DNG and once the photos are uploaded to your computer, the .xmp information could be transferred over to the full-sized image. It's a rather obvious solution, albeit one which Hogarty didn't quite hit on. It will be interesting to see what features make it and what features are specialized for the mobile workflow. It's worth noting the images shared within this article are of the prototype meaning little to no UI design is implemented, which is why it looks much more complicated than we can expect the final product to be whenever it does go live.

Mextures 1.0 Device: iOS iPhone Category: Photography Price: $.99, Version: 1.0 (iTunes) Description: "[Mextures] is the most original photo-editing app for the iPhone that I’ve seen in the App Store in years." - iDownload Blog...
"I have owned an iPad for quite some time now, and found it to be an excellent tool for both amateur photographers like myself and professionals alike. Sure, an iPad will never be able to replace a computer for serious photo editing (well, for me, anyway,) but I feel that it has definitely earned a place in the discerning photographers kit bag."
The technology will be of particular interest to digital designers, artists and production staff, who also will enjoy tremendous performance improvements in advanced video and photo-editing applications and support for "4k UltraHD" 4,096-x-2,160 displays and with high-frame rates adequate for gaming without the need for a discrete graphics card.
Google recently announced the opportunity to purchase the entire suite of Nik software modules for the bargain price of $149. This bundle originally cost $500, putting it outside the price range of all but the more serious photographers with deeper pockets. At $149, however, this suite will appeal to a much broader range of photographers. Nik’s $149 suite represents one of the best values relative to photo editing software. I would strongly urge people to capitalize on this pricing while it lasts.
Adobe has released the first beta version of their popular photo editing and library management tool – Adobe Lightroom, which now reached version 5. This update includes all the features in Lightroom 4, especially the new cameras added in the 4.4 update. I am a long time user of Lightroom, and have used it as my photo editing tool of choice for both my Canon DSLRs and my new Fuji cameras. I really like the integrated approach Lightroom has for both image library management, keywording, image adjustment (the main photo editing module) and printing or exporting. For me Adobe Lightroom has almost replaced Photoshop, for most of my images. I say almost because some image adjustments could only be done in Photoshop. At least until Lightroom 5.
- upgraded spot removal tool (with brush system)
- offline images editing
- auto-adjustments to straighten photos
- new tool: radial gradient filter – the best thing since, well…linear gradients
- support for a ton of new cameras, of interest to me being the Fuji X-E1 and X100s
Will I get the Lightroom 5 upgrade? Let’s start the beta test......
Home sweet home for me...Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) I've been thinking about this for the past few days now, and I've been struck by an idea that won't leave my head: Is it possible that good photo editing software just doesn't exist?
