Adobe Sneak Peek of RAW Processing on Tablet
Yesterday on The Grid, Scott and Matt were joined by Tom Hogarty from Adobe, who gave us a sneak peek of processing RAW photos on a tablet! Using a prototype version of a possibly upcoming app on his iPad 2, he demonstrated the ability to edit RAW photos using Lightroom-like capabilities such as Highlights, Shadows, Exposure, Contrast, and more. He also discussed cloud synchronization with the edits made on tablets back to your computer. Careful not to say anything concrete, he also mentioned that he would like to see the ability to mark picks and rejects or set other categories in the app.

There were also a ton of giveaways, including copies of Lightroom, so check out the show above for more info on how to win!
