Adobe (ADBE) wants to turn tablets into serious photo-editing tools: the media software giant is working on an app that would bear a strong resemblance to its popular and feature-rich Lightroom PC software. Support for raw photo formats and cloud syncing are said to be part of the package. Adobe already offers its Photoshop Express (free) and Touch ($9.99) apps for the iPad, but their feature sets pale in comparison to Lightroom's (never mind regular Photoshop's).

    Instead of weaker and less hefty software, it seems that it would be better to promote tablets with more processing power.

    That's a Microsoft (MSFT) Surface Pro running Adobe (ADBE) Lightroom. The problem I see is how to price a lighter version for less powerful tablets. Despite a large tablet market, I don't see this move generated notable revenue improvements for Adobe.
