We’re doing everything on our smallest screen, even photography. But Adobe knows that bigger may still be better when it comes to reviewing, sharing and enjoying those pictures.

Adobe, renowned for its imaging and multimedia software, announced Tuesday it is bringing Lightroom to Apple TV. It is now available in the App Store for a free download, but it will require a fourth generation Apple TV and a Creative Cloud subscription login.

Lightroom is photo processing software that was first available in 2008. It is popular with serious photographers because it allows viewing, organizing and retouching large numbers of digital images. Adobe has embraced mobile photography with a smartphone version for editing on the go.

Lightroom for Apple TV has quick navigation and will allow users to share photos in slideshows. Users can also zoom in on individual images to examine and admire sharp details. The TV app will sync with your most recent edits on Lightroom CC on desktop, Lightroom on Mobile or Lightroom on web.

“Our goal has always been to make Lightroom the one solution that you use to enjoy your photography, anywhere and to let you share your photos with anyone, anywhere, with the best possible quality,” Adobe wrote on its website blog Tuesday. “Now (that) goal has become a reality on the big screen. Wow, your friends, family, and clients with your favorite photos, in the comfort of your home or studio.”
