Control Room brings some of Adobe Lightroom’s development and library management controls and functionality to an app. With Control Room, an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch can function as an external control panel for editing and managing photos within Adobe Lightroom. All of this can simplify and improve a workflow.

• Quickly and remotely make development adjustments via sliders and entry fields, all made easy with a touchscreen.
• The Basic, Tones, Mixer, Detail, Effects, Split Toning, Transform, and Calibrate panels are provided.
• Non-Lightroom CC users can access Lightroom's Dehaze slider.
• Create and use custom development panels with the development settings that you use the most.
• Define and use any Lightroom keyboard shortcuts within the app.
• Quickly and remotely apply your own Lightroom presets to photos.
• Rate photos, add photos to a rapid collection, flag photos, label photos, and navigate between photos.
• All changes are reflected in real-time between the app and Lightroom.

You will need to install the free corresponding Adobe Lightroom plugin provided on our website.

Actually works and is super helpful.

This app actually works and speeds up editing a bit. I have a large monitor and am able to hold my iPad in my peripheral view while I edit. You occasionally need to look back and forth from the iPad to the monitor, but it’s not terrible. Is it better than a several hundred dollar LoupeDeck? No, but it gets you about 60% the way there a 1/70 the cost.
