Adobe has released an updated version of Lightroom for iOS that delivers a new editing interface, an info screen that lets you add copyright info and more, plus a new pro mode with an improved capture interface.

The new Lightroom iOS update also brings “support for all of the latest cameras and lenses provided in today’s Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom releases,” Adobe says.

The new editing experience focuses on categorizing similar functions together and was inspired by photographer feedback:

Our design team reached out to photographers of all skill levels to help us figure out how people edit with Lightroom mobile, what’s missing, and how we could make it even better. This update represents our first release taking advantage of this research.

It also focuses on single-hand editing which is ideal on large-screen iPhones. The new info screen lets you add data to your image including the “often requested ability to add in titles, captions, and copyright from mobile devices.”

Lightroom also added the ability to shoot in raw from the iPhone back in September, and now a new pro mode lets you manually control exposure and focus which has already been available on Android.

Note that the new edit and info features are only available on iPhone for now; those features will come to iPad and Android in future releases.

Lightroom for iOS is available for free on the App Store.
