A number of premium and mid-range smartphones these days feature a Pro mode in the camera app that lets users make manual adjustments to the ISO, shutter speed, white balance, and exposure while capturing images. More often than not, the Pro mode also includes a RAW image capture setting that lets users save captured images as .dng files. While there are many benefits to capturing images in the RAW format, it does have a few drawbacks. For instance, when you capture images in a common format like JPEG, the smartphone can automatically correct geometric distortions or exposure issues in the images. However, when you capture RAW images, these issues aren’t fixed automatically. To address this issue, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom offer device-specific lens correction profiles for several Android smartphones that you can use to quickly correct your images.
Earlier this year in March, Adobe released lens correction profiles for a couple of newly released devices like the OnePlus 7T, Huawei Mate 30 Pro, and the LG G8 ThinQ. Now, the company has added profiles for even more devices that are supported in Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and the Camera Raw plugin. The list of newly supported devices includes:
Apple iPad (6th generation) back camera (JPEG)
Apple iPad (7th generation) back camera (JPEG)
Apple iPad Air (3rd generation) back camera (JPEG)
Apple iPad Mini (5th generation) back camera (JPEG)
It’s worth noting that these lens correction profiles are also supported in Adobe’s Photoshop Express and Lightroom apps on Android.
