Adobe Lightroom 2.6 New Edit interface and Info Section
This latest version of Lightroom also provides brings a new capture interface and professional mode; these two modes, however, were already available to Lightroom Android users since early this year. Adobe’s design team asked for suggestions from photographers of varying skills to help them improve the application.This update represents our first release taking advantage of this research. The first step Adobe has taken is to bundle similar tools under one category, making it faster to use. An interface was then built which allowed the single-handed application capability. One major advantage this has is to ensure that the entire image is visible while being edited, thereby offering better real-world solutions. The updated info section adds the often-requested ability to add and edit titles, copyright details and descriptions and better captions. All these can now be done using the Adobe Lightroom 2.6 updated features while staying mobile.
