Adobe has released Lightroom mobile, a companion app to Lightroom desktop software, which will only be available as part of Adobe Creative Cloud.

Designed for the iPad, the Lightroom mobile app provides non-destructive processing of files and utilises new Smart Preview technologies to provide an efficient way to manage and edit images across desktops, mobile devices and the Web. Features include the ability to:
– Sync mobile edits, metadata and collection changes back to the Lightroom catalog on a Mac or Windows computer;
– Automatically import images captured on an iPad and sync back to a Lightroom catalog on the desktop;
– Work on images, even when your iPad is offline, for a truly portable experience;
– Sync photos between Lightroom 5 and Lightroom mobile; synced photos can also be viewed from any Web browser.

The Photoshop Photography Program (AU$9.99 per month) includes Lightroom 5, Photoshop CC, Lightroom mobile and a public portfolio site through Behance. Any members of Creative Cloud complete plan or Photoshop Photography Program automatically receive access to Adobe Lightroom mobile. Lightroom mobile is immediately available for iPad 2 or later running iOS 7, from the Apple App Store and requires Lightroom 5.4 for Mac or Windows.
