As part of its MAX 2019 conference, Adobe has announced updates for all of its photography products, including Lightroom on desktop and mobile platforms, Lightroom Classic, and Adobe Camera Raw. A number of changes arrive as part of these updates, including the addition of interactive edits and guided tutorials in Lightroom on Mac and Windows, advanced exporting in Lightroom for Android and ChromeOS and more.

The majority of the newly announced updates are for Lightroom on desktop. In addition to the aforementioned guided tutorials and interactive edits, this software is being updated with more advanced exporting options including TIF support, GPU acceleration, a new Fill Edges feature for panoramas that is powered by Content-Aware Fill tech, a new migrator tool for moving to Lightroom from Photoshop Elements and support for directly ordering prints from White House Custom Color.

In addition to the desktop software, Adobe is updating Lightroom for ChromeOS, as well as Android and iOS. As mentioned, both Android and ChromeOS have received advanced export control that includes more options and support for batch exporting images in original, JPEG, and TIF formats. These features will arrive on iOS 'soon,' according to Adobe.

As well, all three platforms are getting contextual help, which was first added to Lightroom on Mac and Windows earlier this year. The new help menu is accessible by selecting the '?' icon within the Lightroom app on iOS, Android, and ChromeOS.

Lightroom for iOS is finally receiving the Batch Editing feature that launched on desktop last year and on Android and ChromeOS back in August. With this, users can apply changes to multiple image selections simultaneously, cutting down on editing time when using an iPhone or iPad.

Finally, Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom Classic are both getting the Fill Edges feature for panoramas that is detailed above. Lightroom Classic is also receiving support for multi-batch export and the ability to easily export and share presets and preset groups with others.
