Leaks reveal details of Adobe Lightroom for iPad

updated 03:24 pm EST, Fri January 17, 2014

Expected to paralled desktop version, cost $99 annually

Adobe is on the verge of launching the iPad version of Lightroom, leaks indicate. Earlier this week, the company's website briefly contained references to the app, and even let some people pay for a subscription, which was listed with a $99 annual fee. The reason for the fee is cloud storage, since Lightroom is designed to bulk-process hundreds or thousands of photos, and Adobe wants to sync files between iPads and the Mac and Windows versions of the software.

The existence of the app has reportedly been confirmed by an Adobe chat representative, who when asked pulled up data about about the app, officially called Lightroom for Mobile. The person also explained that the iPad edition should be similar feature-wise to its desktop counterpart, to the extent of being able to edit RAW files directly from a camera.

Adobe demonstrated an early version of the technology towards the beginning of 2013, but then went silent. It's unclear when Lightroom might reach the App Store.
