Light­room mo­bile

Syn­chro­nise and share work with your de­vices

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Art Tools Hardware & Software -

Adobe’s app for iOS and An­droid en­ables you to syn­chro­nise files from your mo­bile apps with your main com­puter. Although it’s pri­mar­ily de­signed for pho­to­graph man­age­ment, it’s still a help­ful app for your art­work.

As you’d ex­pect from Adobe, the in­ter­face is well de­signed and easy to use. You can set up Light­room mo­bile to au­to­mat­i­cally sync with any com­puter that’s run­ning the desk­top ver­sion of the pro­gram: it’s a quick and ef­fi­cient way to make sure all your pho­tos and art­work are saved on­line. So if you lose your mo­bile de­vice, at least you won’t lose your work.

The whole process of sync­ing your art is fast, and cru­cially you can leave it to look af­ter your work in the back­ground. How­ever, the ser­vice does re­quire an Adobe Cre­ative Cloud ac­count, which be­gins at £8.57 a month. If you use a lot of Adobe’s pro­grams then it’s a nice ad­di­tion, although you can get hold of sim­i­lar syn­chro­ni­sa­tion tools for free from ser­vices such as Drop­box ( www.drop­box.com).

Help­fully, Light­room en­ables you to tweak and edit your files af­ter you’ve up­loaded them.

Light­room’s sync­ing process is au­to­matic, but you also can dip in and choose what to ar­chive.
