Adobe introduces upcoming Camera Raw support for Photoshop on iPad


Adobe brings Camera Raw to the iPad version of Photoshop and demonstrated how it works in a how-to video. Ryan Dumlao, Senior Product Manager for Photoshop on iPad, shows how Camera Raw can be used to edit RAW and DNG photos imported directly from a camera – in this case a Fujifilm – or ProRAW files from the iPhone 12 Pro and 13 Pro.

Camera Raw is a long-standing plugin that enables advanced editing of RAW images in Photoshop, and it is also the technical basis of Lightroom’s processing engine. Dumlao’s video shows how to change various settings and exposure settings in Photoshop, including importing the RAW file as a smart object for non-destructive editing that can be transferred to the desktop version. In his demo, Dumlao uses Photoshop features to perform tasks such as removing individual tree branches and adjusting the color of a specific rope in his photo.

While many photographers use Lightroom as their primary editing tool, the addition of Camera Raw to Photoshop for iPad will greatly expand photo editing capabilities for iPad owners who use Photoshop as a large part of their workflow. job. Adobe has not announced exactly when the feature will be released, saying only that it is “coming soon.”
