Adobe Lightroom CC updated with Surface Pro 3 optimizations, new Touch mode included

Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 has been a massive success. The device is loved by consumers and professionals alike for its hybrid nature as well as the multiple input methods that it accepts, so it’s not surprising to see developers start optimizing their apps for the device.

Since the Surface Pro 3 runs full Windows 8.1, users can install any of their x86 applications on it, but some of those apps will have issues scaling, making them difficult to use on the Pro 3’s high-DPI display. Now Adobe has updated its popular Lightroom CC photo-editing application to better support the Surface Pro 3.

Optimizations to Lightroom CC include changes to UI elements. The UI is now dynamic and can detect whether or not the Type Cover is connected. If it is, users get the regular, properly scaled UI, but once the keyboard is disconnected, users get the new Touch Workspace UI which supports touch gestures and is a lot more finger friendly.
