Regardless of what your opinion is of Adobe's subscription model, it is fair to say that Lightroom, in all of its variants, has grown into a powerful platform for photographers, especially on the desktop. With that said, the more I use Lightroom CC Mobile on iOS, the more impressed I become.
Last week, Adobe released Lightroom CC Version 4.1.1 for iOS. While such "dot releases" are usually used as maintenance updates with bug fixes, performance improvements, and updated raw libraries, Lightroom CC Version 4.1.1 adds welcomed support for Apple Shortcuts.
In what is becoming a predictable trend, Sony joins a list of other companies bucking the tradition of making product announcements at CES, opting instead to hold their own press event. And on its face, I'd be completely cool with that.
