In Focus: July 2014

For photographers constantly on the move, it has become important to have the ability to infuse mobile editing into your workflow. Adobe has released Lightroom mobile for the iPad, providing tagging and editing functionality that mirrors desktop editing behavior, allowing it to integrate seamlessly with desktop Lightroom 5 through cloud functionality. As you work, your mobile edit automatically updates to your desktop. Local download is available for offline editing, or view and share images directly through Lightroom.Adobe.com when you sign in with your Adobe Creative Cloud ID. List Price: Free (with Creative Cloud subscription). Contact: Adobe, www.adobe.com.

The well-styled Deluxe Moon Pro app provides rich information about the moon for night photography lovers. Available in 20 languages, the app offers a moon calendar with moonrise and moonset times for your specific location, timers, display for distance from the earth and elevation. The Phase Scan lets you know when the next phase will start and which areas will be illuminated. The app also includes both solar and lunar eclipse times. List Price: $2.99.
