Adobe Systems released Lightroom 5.3 on Thursday, extending its support to two Nikon full-frame SLRs, the enthusiast-oriented D610 and the retro Nikon Df, and one of the two first mobile phones that can produce raw photos, the Nokia Lumia 1020.

Nokia just released the Lumia 1520 phablet, making it the first phone that can produce raw images — those that record the unprocessed sensor data before conversion into more convenient but less flexible formats like JPEG. For Adobe, though, it’s the more mainstream Lumia 1020 that got the first Lightroom support, although its software won’t be updated to handle raw photos until early 2014.

In other mobile-phone news, Lightroom 5.3 also can correct lens problems from Apple’s iPhone 5s, along with a range of lenses from Sony, Nikon, and Canon. The iPhone 5S can’t produce raw files, but Lightroom support means the software can counteract distortion and vignetting.
