If for some reason, you’re caught in a situation that requires you to edit RAW files and you don’t have a computer on hand, Adobe has got your back. Adobe is working on a mobile complement to Lightroom which will let you view and edit RAW images on your computer from your mobile device. While still in development the app will use the lossy DNG Smart Preview which is new to Lightroom 5 to keep your tablet chugging along without locking up. The app will also use the same image processing model that is used in Lightroom and ACR. The changes will then be able to sync changes between devices quite easily.
While it sounds pretty useful, I don’t see where this will slot into a workflow in any way, shape or form. I’d rather get a MacBook Air, or any 11incher rather than use a tablet to edit my photos (monitor calibration comes to mind). For now, it’s still not fully confirmed yet, but it will depend on many factors to see if its going to be successful or not. How much would you pay for an app like this?
