Adobe Lightroom, the photo editor that I’m not sure I could ever live without at this point, received a big update to its Auto tool across the entire Lightroom ecosystem. An update for Android also brings a Nougat feature, as well as other bug fixes.
For the new Auto tool, Adobe says they “completely reworked” it using their Adobe Sensei AI platform. When you tap “Auto” now, you should get a “better photo,” thanks to an analysis that compares “thousands of professionally edited photos” in order to get you results. Again, the new Auto is on all Lightroom releases.
Additionally, Android users on Nougat+ can use App Shortcuts (long-press on the app icon) to launch into popular modes. You’ll also find “more control” over storage management, as well as a bunch of bug fixes. The full list of those changes is below:
- App Shortcuts — For Android Nougat and later devices, tap and hold on the app icon to quickly launch the app into popular modes.
- More control for managing storage.
- Resolved an issue that prevented some Huawei customers from importing images.
- Resolved an issue that caused a crash for some Pixel 2 customers on export.
- Resolved a problem that prevented some Samsung customers from installing the previous version.
- Bug fixes and speed improvements.
