Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Raw and HDR capture in Lightroom for mobile, part of Photoshop and Lightroom: Mobile, Desktop, and Cloud.
- [Instructor] I want to share an update to the capture module in Lightroom Mobile. A lot has changed here. First thing I should say is that if you're using a newer iOS device, meaning an iPhone 6s or later, or an iPad Pro 9.7 or later, you can capture raw files. You'll see at the top of the screen, there's a switch for DMG or JPEG. If you don't have that switch, you probably don't have a newer device, or your application is not updated. I'm going to go through the update and make sure we've got the most current. Now, even if you can't capture raw, you can still do some other interesting things with the camera.
And I should mention that for Android users, the support of the camera goes back much further. The devices are more relaxed. It's an OS limitation on the iOS side. So, in the lower left-hand corner, we've got some new options. One of them is the professional mode, and you can set your own white balance, which is noteworthy because with a raw file, that means you're really, truly adjusting the individual color channels. And that would be with the little picker on the far right, there.
I'm just going to pick a neutral area, and choose that. And my raw file now has that unique white balance. The other thing to note is that there's an HDR mode. If I go to to High Dynamic Range, and I take a picture here, it's going to tell me to hold steady and it's going to automatically take a few different images, and those will be fused together and ghosted. This is easily my favorite way to capture HDR. So know now that if you have a newer device on iOS, you can capture raw files using the capture module in Lightroom.
It's something you can't do with a normal camera, and it really extends the power of what's possible here. So make sure that you update Lightroom, and I hope you have a device that allows you to enjoy this feature.
