Adobe released an update to its photo processing application on iOS. The new update brings something that will help somehow fix a workflow issue on iOS. Imagine you take a few pictures with your camera in RAW format. You want to process them on the go with your iPad. Currently, the only way to do this is to import them into Photos app and process them in the application of your choice that supports RAW pictures. If you want to process them in Lightroom, you then have to open Lightroom and do the import, a two steps process.
Now, with this update, by supporting Siri Shortcuts, you can import your pictures in Photos.app and then from there, you select them and execute your shortcut to move them in Lightroom. My shortcut does this:
- Accept photos from input, pass them to Lightroom.
- Ask if I want to delete the photos from Photos.app (this adds some flexibility to the automation).
- Ask if I want to open Lightroom.
Also, in this process, you can ask Lightroom to apply a preset. This is what they say in the update notes. The problem is, this is not the preset like we know them in Lightroom, but profiles which is not the same at all.
