Adobe has launched a new version of Lightroom, its photo processor and image organizer. Dubbed Lightroom CC (for Creative Cloud), this new version provides HDR and panorama merging, facial recognition, improved slideshows, and other new features. But it also delivers unique new functionality for users on Surface Pro 3.
This update to Lightroom CC follows similar updates to Photoshop and Illustrator that take advantage of Surface Pro 3’s touch screen and Surface Pen. But for Lightroom, Adobe went in a slightly different direction.
With the Surface Pro 3 Type Cover (or any other keyboard) attached, Lightroom works normally and provides a familiar full-featured application layout.

But if you remove the keyboard on Surface Pro 3, Lightroom switches to a new Touch Workspace that lets you swipe through photo previews, flag photos, increase exposure, adjust color, crop, and apply adjustments to targeted parts of an image.
