Adobe has updated its Lightroom app for iPhone and iPad, with changes to the brush selection tool, in-app camera fixes, and support for the latest digital cameras and lenses.

Beyond stability improvements, the 150MB update to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom now allows users to make precise adjustments with a swipe with the new Brush Selection tool. The changes in the new version allow for selective application of brightness, clarity, exposure — all with 3D Touch for pressure sensitive input on compatible devices.

Haptic feedback has been added to the in-app camera. Additionally, support for the ACR 9.12 release of cameras and lenses has been added, allowing for specific modifications to imported images related to the type of camera the picture was taken on.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.8.0 is free, and requires iOS 9.3 or later. While the app itself requires iOS 9.3 and above, some features including DNG format and HDR image capture require iOS 10 and a 12MP camera.
