Lightroom for the iPad Appears Briefly on Adobe's Website, Release Imminent
Adobe’s professional editing software, Lightroom, may soon make its way to the iPad, according to a product listing on the company’s website that appeared briefly before being pulled. The mobile software was listed with a $99 cloud subscription, to be renewed on a yearly basis. Originally discovered by the folks at 9to5Mac, Adobe’s tagline for Lightroom for mobile was “take Lightroom anywhere,” and according to a support employee, the software has been designed for the iPad and includes many of the same features found in the desktop version of Lightroom.
Similar to Apple’s Aperture software, Lightroom is designed for post-production work, allowing its users to edit and manage high volumes of digital images. Lightroom for mobile devices has been in the works for several months now and back in May of 2013, Adobe demonstrated a concept for a Lightroom-style photo editing app for the iPad. The app was cloud-based and while it was designed to serve as a companion app to the full Lightroom software, it did offer features for on-the-go photo editing as well. In the demo, the app was able to edit raw photos imported from a camera, implementing changes to exposure, clarity, shadows, highlights and white balance.
Changes that are made within the app synced with the desktop version of Lightroom, allowing the same photos to be edited on desktop computers, laptops and on the iPad. Based on the reoccurring subscription fees for Lightroom mobile, it’s likely that the finished product works in much the same way, storing photos and edits in the cloud.
In May of 2013, Adobe abandoned its standard Creative Suite of apps, electing instead to offer cloud-based versions of all its apps. Lightroom 5 was later released in June of 2013 and offered both standalone and as part of the Creative Cloud service. It’s likely that the upcoming Lightroom for iPad will be able to sync with both versions of the software and it is possible that it’ll be included for free to Creative Cloud subscribers that pay for Adobe’s full suite of software.
Though we don’t know when Lightroom for iPad might launch, its brief appearance on the Adobe website suggests that a release is imminent.

Not sure shy anyone would want this. In order to process images, you first need to import them to the computer and then put them on your iPad. I'm sorry but anyone using an iPad as a camera is not a photographer. In addition, the desktop version is far cheaper and it comes with photoshop and every other adobe app.

Also, unless it has changed since Adobe went to the cloud model, Lightroom has always been a stand alone product and not part of the Master Suit which includes everything.
