Adobe Lightroom is Samsung Galaxy S23 Series’ exclusive default photo editor for RAW photos

Adobe Lightroom HSL

Adobe has announced that Samsung Galaxy S23 series smartphones globally will use Adobe Lightroom as the exclusive default photo editor for RAW photos taken with the Expert RAW app. The Expert RAW app, available exclusively on Samsung Galaxy, enables DSLR-style image shooting and editing in RAW and JPEG. Once downloaded, Expert RAW app functionality can also be accessed through the native Camera app on the Galaxy S23 series. For an enhanced Galaxy ecosystem experience, Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra and Pro series PCs will automatically transfer Expert RAW images from Galaxy S23 series devices, and allow users to edit images on Adobe Lightroom for professional-level results.

As the only photo editor directly integrated with the Expert RAW app, Lightroom enables Galaxy S23 series users to start editing RAW photos with a tap. Built with presets and tutorials for hobbyists and advanced detail enhancement technologies for pros, Lightroom offers every user a world-class photo editing experience. Users will benefit from Lightroom’s image processing, straightforward controls and flexibility, including differentiators such as cloud storage so users can instantly send their RAW photos to the cloud, freeing up precious smartphone space while unlocking synchronized editing across other devices.

The Magic of RAW

Compressed image formats including JPG and HEIF limit both the quality of photos and users’ ability to edit fine details. New camera technology in Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series delivers the highest resolution and image quality in Galaxy history, including support for higher resolution and uncompressed 16-bit RAW images, as well as superior astrophotography and multi-exposure performance. Shooting in RAW is transformative for mobile photographers, unlocking real-world colors and details that were historically impossible to capture with smartphones.

Lightroom is the industry standard for editing photos, offering powerful, end-to-end editing tools that take advantage of the dynamic range of data available in RAW photos. Using Lightroom’s powerful features – including thousands of one-click image improvement presets, sharpening and smoothing, masking, color correction, noise reduction and automatic version saving – mobile photographers of all skill levels can take full control of their photos wherever they are, and rapidly achieve their visions.
