Enabling this mode grants users the ability to automatically view HDR data while editing imported HDR photos, enhancing the editing experience.

Currently, Lightroom for mobile (Android) offers HDR support exclusively for Google Pixel 7 devices. This includes models such as Google Pixel 7, Google Pixel 7a, and Google Pixel 7 Pro, and it’s specifically tailored for Android 14. While this feature is currently limited to certain devices, it showcases Adobe’s commitment to providing cutting-edge editing tools for Android users.
