Android users with mobile devices capable of capturing DNG raw format images will now be able to capture and process them in Lightroom 2.0 for Android, which Adobe has announced is now available.

Lightroom 2.0 includes numerous new features including the aforementioned in-app camera which can capture images in DNG raw format, such as non-destructive shoot-through presets, dehaze tool, split toning enhancement, target adjustment tool functionality, point mode when using the curve tool, and enhanced sharing of video stories.

Adobe collaborated with travel photographer Colby Brown to use and test Lightroom 2.0 with his Nexus 6P phone. While trying the app out in Cuba, he found the application to be a big improvement over previous Adobe offerings for Android and looks forward to using it more.
