If you find it time and energy-consuming to organize your photos (I know I do), Google has just made it a little easier. The company is launching several tools that will make the app cleaner and easier to navigate. At the same time, organizing your photos should become simpler, too – but you can also easily digitize and import your old prints. So, let’s dive right in and see what’s new.
Adobe has just announced a major workflow enhancement in Lightroom for iOS. Soon, all iPhone and iPad users will be able to directly import their photos into Lightroom on their device. Adobe Product Manager Tom Hogarty shares a sneak peek of the upcoming feature and make sure to check it out in the video below.
After a 15-year-long dispute, The World Trade Organization approved that the United States can impose trade sanctions on some products from the EU. The US is about to apply $7.5 billion in punitive tariffs on the EU products. Among other things, it will affect German camera lenses, making them 25% more expensive.
Do you like Lightroom’s new import screen? That’s what I thought. It turns out that in addition to the import being over simplified for some and too complicated for others, it is the slowest (by far) from the competing photo management applications out there.
How much slower? Jim Harmer of improve photography took Lightroom for a spin of import, comparing it to 3 other popular image management suites: Capture One, Photo Mechanic and Apple’s Photos App. Each contestant would have to import and generate full previews for 97 random files. The results absolutely blew me away. Never using anything else other than Lightroom I thought that the import and preview generation time was inherent to the process but Jim’s test shows results up to 20 times faster with other programs.
