CA-JR - Don’t need my DSLR 90% of the time
This may be my first product review, but I am very eager to share my experience. Thanks to Lightroom CC, I can shoot beautiful raw photos (in HDR), easily organize them, easily fix/improve them, and automatically upload them to the cloud where they don’t eat up space on my phone. I must say that I feel like about 95% of the time I can tweak photos to look exactly what I am hoping for. A major reason for this is the ability to highlight just a region of the photo and adjust the brightness/color to that region. And it is really nice how how the app also ties fairly seamlessly with other Adobe apps such as the two Photoshop apps. I could go on and on about other features I like and other minor things that just are smart and show Adobe was paying attention to detail. My complaints are few and far between, and I’m sure will get tweaked in future version.
For these reasons, I am generally confident 90% of the time just walking around with my iPhone to take pictures rather than my bulky Canon 5D Mark IV.
My friends keep asking me what app I am using for taking and editing the pictures. I keep telling them they should get this app.
HelloitsDerek - A 2nd camera roll, but better...
With 1-terabyte of storage it's practically unlimited; no need to worry about space ever again. The edit tools are similar to iOS photos, but on steroids. Flag photos: accept/reject/no flag plus a five star rating system. Organize your photos with folders and albums. Tag photos with as many keywords as you want. Easily search and display photos by any of these features. I also love that I can use it on my Mac and iPad too. Plus you get Bridge for your Mac which expands your editing feature list even more. If the monthly fee has you down, just pretend your taking one of the dev team members out for a coffee every month. Well worth it, this app is super amazing and works very well! You can tell it's designed by a team of talented people and not just one guy in his basement. Don't hesitate, get it today, you love it... I guarantee it!!
agegirl - Please help🙏🏻
Hello, I know I probably won’t get a response but it’s worth a shot. I have downloaded more photo editing apps than you can imagine. I have tried so hard to figure this issue out and I can’t for the life of me. So I’m really desperate at this point. Can you please tell me how to resize an image without compromising the photo? Lightroom gives you some aspect ratio presets. But, it doesn’t matter what I choose because it always cuts off my photo. I don’t want to do that. I want to be able to fit in the FULL size photo. If it means I could crop it into being a full sized photo, I would be willing to loose on the quality. And, I don’t want to put it on a white background so that the photo fits in that square because I would still be loosing on the photo. I want to be able to resize to whatever dimension I need to in order to fit the photo in different social media platforms. I know that a lot of these platforms automatically compress the photo for you but, I would like to resize it before I upload so I don’t compromise the photo, and it doesn’t get cut off. I have watch many videos yet, I can never get it. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could suggest what I can do to fix this frustrating problem. I would be so grateful!!
Pokepokebtcheekecheeke - Greatest program yet
Load up your photos on your desktop or laptop from a REAL camera or phone. Create a collection in Lightroom, transfer to Photoshop and back to Lightroom. Share entire album within seconds to your contacts. Pretty smooth. Absolutely NOTHING comes close to what PSCC & Lightroom can do. Absolutely love this system. I generally shoot with dslrs and use several features in photoshop that Lightroom can’t duplicate or run. I only have the “save as smart previews only” because the don’t take up much room on the server and I can send the “collections link” to anyone I wish to share. There is a slider to allow the sender to download the smart preview. Most of the senders are family and only view on their phones or tablets. I keep originals(RAW) on portable drives and connects with saved presets from PSCC/Lightroom. This is still my best program for travel and family photos. I still can’t get away from focal lengths, aperatures available and picture quality of a real camera. I print and display my work at the office and my home . There is a difference between cell phone and larger sensor size. Physics still dominates , no way around that yet but, maybe in my lifetime ?
Anasatya - PLEASE HELP
I absolutely adore this photo app and have been using it for years! but since one of the latest updates, you can no longer DELETE an individual image. Now you have to selects images from your entire gallery and delete the selected ones but you CANNOT open an individual image as before and delete it. On the help guides says to “open image-click Edit-delete image” the problem is that when you open the image and click on edit there is NO delete image option. How to delete an individual image NOT from the photo gallery but the image itself? WHY you removed this option?
When you take 15 images of a ring let’s say, you want to see them individually to get a closer look and then delete an image if you don’t like. Now? You can see individual images but you have to go back to the gallery and from there select the ones you want to delete. Problem is that 15 almost identical images in gallery size doesn’t allow you to know anymore which one is the one you wanted to delete. Not having this option any more is time consuming and frustrating the least to say.
Please make this feature available again. 🙏🏼
ssb540 - Almost Perfect with One Annoying Feature
I use this app professional for 90% of my editing work! It has most of the functions I use on my desktop using Lightroom Classic. I’m sure one day through updates it will receive all of Lightroom Classic’s functionality. My guess is this will be after Apple makes the switch to all in house processors when Intel and NVIDIA is phased out.
My one big complaint, which is probably not a big deal to most people, is when I make ANY EDIT, it can be marking a photo, making an adjustment, rating a photo, etc.., a notification pops up in the middle of my screen, covering my image, to tell me what adjustment I made. Even with overlays turned off in settings this little notification pops up for a couple seconds on each photo. When editing 4,000+ photos every week this adds up to a LOT of wasted time waiting for that little notification to go away so I can see my photo.
Adobe, if you read this, PLEASE add an option under settings to hide ALL overlays and notifications.
KBYogi007 - Love this App, but have had challenges...
For some reason, and twice in one week when I’ve gone in to edit some photos with presets I’ve downloaded (some of which I have had for years), they are wiped clear and the only thing available is the standard presets that have come with the apps. I sent an email for support and never heard back the first time. I bought a new set of presets I was looking at and when I downloaded those the rest magically appeared? I was worried it would happen again. Which last night it did. I had edited probably 2 or 3 photos and then I went to do another, and... gone, all presets gone including the new ones I bought. I tried updating the app, but no updates were needed or available. I tried deleting g the app, which I was hesitant to do, but desperate as I didn’t want to have to buy more presets. So I had to painfully go through my emails and find every purchase I made of presets from various providers and painstakingly download and create each preset. I have quite a few so this took me some time. Really frustrated by this recent experience. I would have rated it 5 Stars prior to this issue.
maxblack113 - The future
Lightroom CC is the future of photography. Pretty much all the tools I need are included. The RAW camera for iPhone is incredible, plus the cloud syncing makes my workflow a breeze. On top of that, the updates just keep bringing more and more great features, proving they are truly putting your subscription money to good use. Great stuff!
Only a couple cons:
-The last update added a heal tool, but it is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. It works fine for a single blemish on otherwise perfect skin or something, but I’ve seen way better heal tools in really cheap apps (like pixelmator).
-The filters/presets are pretty bad. There’s maybe 2 or 3 good color presets and 2 or 3 good black and white presets. I know that presets are frowned upon by most pros, but sometimes they’re fun and creative and the selection of presets in this app is pretty lackluster. I know you can add more through the computer but that method is convoluted and the app should just come with better stock filters.
Bobskie boo - Love it!
I am so obsessed with Lightroom! I do photography as a hobby and I’m an amateur, so I love learning how to edit my photos in post. I gotta say, the curve tool is such a game changer and a necessity. If used correctly, it can literally change the entire look and vibe of your photos. I have played around with it so much that a lot of my photos look like I used filters from other popular apps. I have stopped using filters COMPLETELY and learning on creating my own style of lighting, color and shadows.
The premium package is a must lol. The geometry tool is such a life saver and gets rid of that annoying “distortion” effect that my lens sometimes loves to throw in my face.
I can’t wait to get an iPad so I can use a bigger screen to edit and see more of my photos since I am only using my phone at the moment. Lightroom is a god send!
Joann Nguyen - LOVE but has some issues
When Lightroom CC came out, it showed amazing improvements from the classic version, and I absolutely love it. I love how it can create public albums and can instantly share to my phone, and don’t get me started on the user interface. However, I’ve had some issues. On the mobile app, when you allow it to access your photos, it will upload every photo from your phone, but when you remove the access, you can’t download the photos from the app; and you only have between the two choices. Also, I really don’t like how on the public albums, there aren’t very many settings, so when I want to show my friends my albums, they aren’t able to download the photos. I used to prefer this app over Flickr for sharing images, but it’s become a hassle because my friends aren’t able to download my photos. Anyways, pretty good app but it needs some improvements.
TrueReviewer02 - Awesome App, has a (literal) huge problem.
I think this App is great. Even if you don't have the cash for the Creative Cloud. If you want to just do some photo editing or add metadata and watermarks, this app is on top!
Unfortunately, even though the app offers cloud storage with the CC, its still the largest app on my phone. A quick search on the internet tells me I'm not alone.
I think a great update for this app would be smaller res photos on the device. Yeah, the app has smaller res pictures already, but I mean Really small res. Let me explain:
I don't do much photo editing (I prefer to get it right when I open the shutter in the first place), so the smaller "smart previews" aren't what I need. I use Lightroom to organize my pictures, occasionally I'll break out the editing, but its rare. What I need from Lightroom is the ability to import my photos to the cloud, add metadata, and export them at a smaller resolution with a watermark.
I have the Apple Photos app store my pictures in iCloud, and my Photos app has a smaller GB footprint than Lightroom. But Lightroom has megabytes of data stored in its cloud, while Photos has Gigabytes! And Lightroom is still larger on my device! Why is that?
If this is a bug, please fix it. If its just a difference in resolution between the Lightroom device copies and the Photos copies, please add a function to save "lower res images" (EVEN LOWER THAN SMART PREVIEWS) to my device.
Brooke Haywood - Lost presets were found!
Love this app! I’m mainly making this review to try to help some people who think their presets disappeared, because I can’t directly respond to reviews, so I’m making my own in hopes that this will help! I thought that all of my presets that I had made (over 40) were gone! & that I only had the original ones that came whenever you first downloaded the app. But then I figured out that whenever you press “Presets” up above those few in the top left it’ll say something like “Colors” & if you press on that, there are several options & “User Presets” was right there & I was able to press on that & view all of my presets! I really hope this helps people. Also, if I could respond to reviews I would, because I’ve seen people think their presets are gone & they’re not!
RobAbroad - Good editing, but workflow feels hobbled
So, the good...the editing seems solid.
The bad...some basic features seem to be missing. The main thing I really feel they need to add to the iOS version is the ability to edit or manage multiple photos as once. There is no way to tag or rate multiple images. I have dozens from the same location and it’s going to be soooo tedious tagging them. I also wish it had at least basic geotagging capabilities. I geotag my photos as part of my workflow when I import the RAW files onto the iPad. But, I can’t actually see that info inside LR. Probably not a huge deal because I can just retag inside of iOS Photos app should I choose.
I noticed in various forums that users have been asking for some of these features for a while. Anyway, I’ll probably discontinue my subscription after I finish this trip and have all my editing done.
tracemeek - Tremendous app; could integrate better with iCloud Photo Library
As a semi-pro photographer, I have found that Lightroom helps me improve the quality of my photos better than any other iOS app, except for perhaps Darkroom. Lightroom’s editing tools and ability to create and sync presets are the best, and in my opinion, worth the monthly cost of a monthly PS/LR subscription.
My one wish is that LR would be engineered to work as an “extension” to the iCloud Photo Library (on desktop too). I don’t want to maintain two separate photo libraries, and the LR library doesn’t offer anything more compelling than iCloud’s.
The iCloud Photo Library’s organization features, its support of RAW files, and the convenience of getting photos into it (a quick swipe from my iPhone’s lock screen) mean that I’m not going to give it up any time soon. Skate to where the puck is going, Adobe! (Please and thank you!)
aaauia1 - Best editing app but..
Ok this app is hands-down the best editing app in my opinion but what I don’t like is the fact they changed the option to have all your edited photos synced across all devices for free but you have to get the subscription. I personally think that this is unfair because these are my photos and plus why should I have to pay just to have my photos that I took for free. So Lightroom, I ask that you please let all users have that option of being able to sync their photos on all devices again. Also, if possible, could you create an option where the photos that are edited have an Instagram accustomed setting because it’s really annoying having Instagram change the quality of the picture horribly because the pixels are too high.
Krizzle711.........711 - Love it
I love using this app. There are so many great features. But when you’re using presets, ones you’ve created or downloaded, you can’t tell what filter is on the photo. I have a lot of presets saved and if I’m editing a bunch of photos I’ll have to go through every single preset to see which is the one that I had originally selected. And it will also take off any other editing I’ve done. So that’s just a little frustrating. And also without going through and editing every minor detail I wish there would be a way to decrease the intensity of a preset.
But other than that I’ve enjoyed using the app. Friends will ask what I use to edit and I gladly tell & show them. This app has a lot of tools that can help create amazing pictures ◡̈
LeonardoRoberto - high hopes
LR classic long has been photos superior in terms of file management/organization (by a mile), but with cc now finally bringing lightroom into the cloud game - this is adobes attempt at the last piece of the puzzle that arguably had left the scales tipped in in favor of apple (arguably. and it’s a darn good fire errofinally found what to abandon a bit under featured for now (though new version is big improvement - except faces don’t seem to ever show up?), but combined with the OCD person’s wonder that is lightroom classic, lightroom is leaps and bounds better than apple. keep up the good work adobe. love you guys! jus pleaaaase don’t ever write lightroom classic out of the equation entirely (at least not until cc is as sophisticated as classic). i get that they serve two different purposes and generally for different target audiences, but them playing together nicely—as they do now—is critical.
guswillcreate - The best photo app I’ve used except for...
I’m going to start with the best things about the app. There’s nothing like it for mobile; the HDR, Raw, and manual settings are exceptional. The editing options are superb giving you curves, clipping and crushing colors when there’s no more information in the image. I feel confident enough to edit a photo on this app as much as I would with the desktop version. Now the negatives; I mentioned that one of my favorite things about the app is the camera, but yet I still find myself using the iPhone native camera more simply because is more accessible. I wish adobe would separate the camera from the editing software. Adobe please allow me to someone pull up my light room camera app as fast as I can with the stock camera. also, being able to record video with such camera app would be amazing.
gofhotog - Great app but needs a few tweaks
Love this app with the exception of one major missing item it would be really great if it would give you physical feedback for a focus point like it does horizontal and vertical. After using this app for a few days shooting cars for a auto dealer to post on the web, I just assumed that the quality of the images would be superior to the native camera on my iPhone. My images kept coming up blurry. Do to the nature of my work, I have to handhold my phone. Despite my trying to hold the phone steady. I then tried the native camera and was completely shocked to see that the images were sharp as a tack. I again assumed that this app would utilize the built in camera stabilization apparently it does not. Very disappointing to say the least. While I can see how this app would be great for landscapes and such. Unfortunately it does not work for my personal needs.
Pajones058 - I love it
Lightroom Cc is everything I wanted in a photo management system. I use it for storage. It has an astonishing number of ways to edit. I am getting great results. I watched the videos adobe provided and now know how to effectively use the features. The fact that your pictures can be seen on all devices, real time is one of the strongest features.
The one feature that is much needed is to be able to identify which photos are not in folders. I have 12,000 pictures and am overwhelmed to find those that didn’t make it into albums. I also had a lot of trouble with photos duplicating on the original upload.
But don’t let these two issues stop you from buying this great, integrated package.
hepkat23 - Love using it, but could use more
I like being able to be away from my desktop as much as possible being a creative who avoids that kind of grind. This is why I welcomed the addition of Lightroom and now Photoshop for iPad Pro. One thing missing:
I know many other users only do “simple edits” on iPads only to return to the big computer for final touch up, but that seem silly. My wish this whole time that iPads have been out has been to make my workflow more organic feeling like drawing or something. Sure windows tablets may work but I don’t like their stylus feel compared to iPad.
Is it that adobe doesn’t want to pay xrite or whoever for licensing the profiles? I wish Apple would do it system wide, but not holding my breath. Some of us still print adobe, so pretty please....
DJ Squirrel - Great, but a major hiccup
Lightroom offers superior color editing, but the major issue is that if you haven’t used the app in some time, it doesn’t use your photo gallery like other apps do (by accessing the gallery to pick)—instead it loads the pictures into its own selection gallery and updates it based on the last time it loads. I edited a photo in October 2019 and here on December 1st 2019 I’ve taken a few hundred more photos, which means the last one I took and want to edit specifically isn’t accessible until the other few 700 ahead of it load first.
It’s annoying and relegates me to using the phone’s basic photo editing options instead when I want to get the work done now, not 10 minutes from now when I can actually select the photo I want.
Crazypaw - I’m so disappointed in the Adobe company
I’ve used their products for 10 years, and had a creative cloud membership for 3 years. I canceled my membership last week, because I never use it at home anymore. They charged me a $200 cancellation fee straight from my bank account without any warning. When trying to contact them it takes hours, and I’ve been hung up on multiple times. It’s been worse than an Uber customer service experience. They finally told me they would refund in 5 days. When that didn’t happen, I contacted them again and they told me another 5-7 days. I doubt I’ll ever get my $200 back without getting my bank involved. Never thought of Adobe as one of those sketchy companies with no morales and horrible customer service, but at the end of the day seems they’re no better than any other corporation. I’m done with them, and all the other companies just out to take your money and offer 0 accountability and integrity.
Kevasus - Makes culling images / sending sneak peeks easy
Sync images from desktop to mobile. Quick and easy! Swipe up or down to rate and flag, simply awesome! Love most of the built in features although I’m still learning what all is packed in this app. Rated 4* due to losing my place multiple times because the app crashed while I was rating pics from a shoot while it was syncing. Once it completely synced I didn’t have any crashes. However, there needs to be a last image feature so that work can easily continue after closing and reopening the app. Save the last state or something so we don’t have to hunt for the last image we touched. This costs time and time is money in our industry. Other than that this is a great app for anyone using desktop version of LR.

SMAARTIST - Awesome app! Pros and cons.
Fantastic app, but there are a couple of things I would have changed. The big one for me is that of after taking a couple of pictures, if I’m in camera mode, I can’t view my picture then swipe to see the other pictures I’ve taken. I think that functionality would add to the experience and make it more user friendly.
I love the photo editing capabilities and the user-defined presets, but the feature I’m most fond of is the camera. Awesome flexibility and control. Works much better than the default camera on iPhone. I love being able to control my focal point manually as well as being able to see a visualization of what is in focus. Beautifully well done. I love it.
:(!:(!35&25&&/4 - Great except for one issue
UPDATE: I love this and how it has all the same features as the desktop version. But how do I disable camera role backup? I found out that the issue from earlier was not what I thought. I can see my photos in the cloud just fine. The issue is that my camera role photos keep backing up, but I don’t want to waste cloud storage, because those are already being backed up to Google Photos. How do I fix this?
Here is my original review:
“I have been using Lightroom Mobile since 2017. I also use it on my computer with a Creative Cloud Subscription. It always worked fine until the latest update came. I can’t view my photos which are synced in Lightroom through Creative Cloud anymore. It just shows me the photos from my camera roll. Useless.”
Corinne___ - Loved it at first
So when I first got the app I, I didn’t have a subscription to adobe and every thing was perfect. I then did the trial of the subscription to the photoshop and Lightroom plan and still loved Lightroom mobile. However, a couple weeks ago my trial ended and my photos stopped coming up on the app. I thought when I ended my membership some of the editing features would end but nope, instead my photos just won’t show up. None of the photos will load because it says my trial has ended. I don’t know why that’s happening because the photos are downloaded to the app, they’re not just in the cloud backup. Anyways I would pay the $5 per month for the membership to see if my photos would actually appear but guess what my bank account has $0.80. Depressing right? Well that’s all I have to say about the app
chase_gagnon - The BEST photography app ever. Period.
I use Lightroom primarily on my iPad, because I travel a lot and it’s easier than lugging around my laptop, and I find the experience of editing in the iPad more enjoyable. Although this is by far the best photo editing app around, it’s lacking just a few things that would put it on par with the desktop version. The main thing for me is the inability to manually select lens profiles. I used a lot of manual lenses that are not electronically connected to my camera, and it would be AWESOME if you guys could add the ability to manually select a lens profile correction like you can on the desktop. If you added this, the app would be perfect in every way for my needs.
Luke Lucas - Could be terrific, but...
Attempting to import from a CF card, via USB-C card reader, directly into Lightroom is one of the most frustrating experiences I’ve ever had. Lightroom continually loses connection with the card reader, so even while I’m simply doing a pre-cull (not bothering to import photos with closed eyes, etc.), the import screen will go away and kick me back out to the main Lightroom library view... and then the import screen will come back up.
I feel certain this is a Lightroom issue as I can just hop over into the Files app in iPadOS, drag my images into a “For Import” folder, and then import from there. But that’s incredibly inefficient.
Three stars for the app being available and when it DOES work after the backdoor import, it’s fantastic. But a flagship feature (direct importing) needs to get fixed somehow.
Ironmonkeyface - Nice Editing App, but ....
Everything about the editing portion of the app is great. My mobile workstation is complete! Than you Adobe Lightroom, developer team. 🤘🏽
Edit: removing “That section of the app works flawlessly in my phone. The troubling part of the app is the lack of control over the photo sync. I’d like to be able to tell Lightroom mobile NOT to upload every photo on my phone - just the ones I choose. Once “All Photo Sync” is enabled you can’t turn it off. And it floods your creative account with all your photos from your phone. It’s a bit intrusive, and is eating up my CC cloud space usage. Fix this, Adobe!”
The developer responded and told me how to tuen off this feature.
Gab'nMcTEXAS - For the photo editing obsessed!
I have several photo editing apps on my iPhone, and I have my favorites. I have a few favorites that I use in combination (I layer) to create AMAZING photos! Artwork, really. Lightroom Creative Cloud allows me to bend and shape and color, and add light upon (without overexposing) my photographs - and the objects within them - in ways that the other apps will not. LCC is a photo corrector and enhancer. Hmm. Not sure how to explain. Often I do not realize my photos need any correction at all. Give it a shot. LCC allows you a free trial period and then monthly payments without a cancellation fee. I am still learning (I bought an instructional book); however, I am having a blast along the way!
joe_ba1 - Great tool! Especially after iPhone X upgrade
Thank you adobe! I loved this app on my 6s plus but was initially grieved after iOS 11.1/.2 broke it for me, along with app switching and general speed problems. The crashing later cleared up (maybe weeks to stabilize?) but was slow. Now - I just upgraded to iPhone X and everything is super speedy! including lr edit auto mode that used to take forever. App switch is nice now! So if you see same thing I think it’s maybe iOS upgrade, - or the restore process that resolved it (I don’t think it was planned to break but was frustrating, no recourse or hint on solution). Great app and I love it!
Dana Photo Girl - So many right things but...
I love this app for so many reasons but then there are some issues that keep it from greatness. It bites it’s own hand off so to speak.
- Adobe Sensei aka artificial intelligence rocks! I never did proper keywording and this is a life saver. It even recognizes original color in my black & whites when doing a color search.
- Rating, flagging, and keywording 1 image is super easy and quick
- Editing is basic but perfect for on the go
- syncs most things with Lightroom Classic and CC desktop
- amazing interface and image rendering
- you can only rate 1 image at a time.
- Does not sync keywords!
- With that said, I’d love the ability to use the sensei feature and quickly flag 1000s of images and then add keywords in Classic but rating 5,000 sky images 1 at a time is unreasonable to say the least.
- If only the sensei feature was added to the original Lightroom that loyal followers are used to using and already have all their catalogs organized it would out of this world.
In summary why have such powerful features split and make us choose? If that’s not possible with current technology then at least make this app have the ability to utilize it to work back and forth.
angelkiler7208 - Constantly crashes
I feel like this is an easy editing tool to use, but probably best to save your money on the monthly subscription. This app regularly crashes and always has. I’ve used it for over three years and about half the time I open it to use it after a little while, it’ll crash. Usually it happens when I open the camera. Sometimes I can get away with using it without crashing for a few versions, but every two updates or so it’ll crash every time you have the app open for a bit. It’s really frustrating because I use this for deadlines and then have to resort to using my native editing on iOS and it is nowhere near as good. Having the paid version doesn’t save you from the crashing issue.
flallnatural - Almost
Downloading maximum available size for sharing literally takes forever. Says "This might take a while" even after 15 minutes of it sitting there. My internet is fine. The full resolution just never downloads. Used to work. Don't know what the problem is now? Overall the features are great and the app syncs well with the desktop app too. Wish there was an option to download full resolution pictures for a certain album or for your whole library onto your device. I have 256 GB of storage on my iPhone and iPad. I'd like to be able to take advantage of that and have these full resolution pictures on my device and give me the option to store them or not.
Constant User of Spotify - Pocket Lightroom
Easy access to all the most used tools, good layout, easy organization. All in all, very happy with the app. My only request would be for better layout for when you’re adjusting some type of tool, but you’re blocking the view of the photo either with the toolbar from the bottom or with your thumb. Maybe there’s some way that the toolbar could always disappear whenever you move a slider and you can keep changing that slider by moving your finger left and right, and then double tap to bring the toolbar back up? I don’t know, y’all will figure it out. Thank you ! Strongly recommend the app
lnh726 - not user friendly,time consuming to use
I pay for Lightroom on my computer so I also get the app. Being that this is a premium paid app I would expect it to be better as far as features and easier to use than comparable free apps like Snapseed. Snapseed is hands-down a better photo editing app and no matter how much I try to edit photos on Lightroom I always find myself going back to Snapseed because it is just so much easier to use and make quick edits on the go. The feature I hate most on Lightroom app is the brush tool. I have tried time and again to use it and I cannot figure out how to use it properly. Snapseed brush tool is very easy to use and I can quickly edit great looking photos on that app. Light room developers please fix the brush feature on the app, it is terrible!
penguins66 - Please add “download all originals” option
It would be very helpful to those of us who do a lot of flying if you would add an option that allows a single click “download all originals to local storage,” so that we can edit photos when off-line on the plane. Offline editing is currently possible through local storage, but you have to swipe through all the images first to make sure that the originals have been downloaded to local storage. That can be a very time-consuming process.
Otherwise, the app is terrific and I continue to enjoy the quality updates. Keep up the good work!
The Great Dustino - To developers
I really love this app, it's editing capabilities are amazing and it's all I use because I cannot afford a decent laptop or computer at the time for the desktop version. I realized you have to have a monthly subscription to the creative cloud to use selective editing and I understand why, but I have no use for the creative cloud at the moment and I wish there was a way to get selective edits with a 1 time purchase. To be honest I wouldn't care if it was 10 or 20 bucks I think it's worth it because there is nothing like it on the appstore right now. Please consider the people who only use a mobile device for editing, most of us don't need the creative cloud or just can't afford it monthly. Thank you for such a great app.
Kathryn in DC - It was 5-star...until I subscribed
Adobe prompted me to upgrade to a subscription, which I did, because I love this app and wanted to use all features possibly available for editing my RAW images. I’m locked out of editing any pictures at all now. I can’t even use basic features like changing exposure, etc. Every time I try to edit, it says I have to upgrade, but then tells me I’ve already upgraded. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. It didn’t help. This is maddening and is completely screwing me over for editing photographs for my business. I’m doing product photography right now for my website for my fall launch. I’m going to have to figure out a different app but I doubt I can get them to look the same as when I use LR. Can someone in support PLEASE HELP ME?!? I’ve tried contacting support but can’t. This is a big deal for me.
mabradfo - Change is hard but this is great
Adobe recently updated their photography offering and it’s a big change. The desktop software is simplified but the biggest change is cloud storage and seamless editing across all devices. This is what I’ve been waiting for. The is parity for the most part across all devices and I no long have to worry about where my photos are stored or if they are backed up. It should be noted that I am not a professional photographer so my workflow is that of an advanced armature. I’m sure that has an affect of my opinion but in that capacity I highly recommend.
Bnghvcgbvfgjkoojxdjkhgyh - Imported pictures I didn’t want
When I went into the mobile app on my phone to save it to my camera roll, I went to edit a picture because I was bored. I was VERY DISPLEASED when it imported 15 of my most recent photos from my iPhone camera role. I wish there was a way to DELETE photos from the cloud. I am a student who is paying for the creative cloud option and it’s a lot to pay for. I don’t want to pay for storage of stuff I don’t want taking up storage. This is a problem that needs to be fixed because I didn’t choose to import them. Adobe software it would be great if you could help me take the photos off of my cloud and maybe even develop a way to delete the photos. Thank you for reading ( if you did )
rockstarkate - Excellent!
I love Lightroom CC. I used to edit and organize my DSLR photos in Bridge and Camera Raw on my laptop, but now I have changed my whole workflow and I couldn’t be happier with it. I can load my photos directly to my iPad Pro and the editing is so fast and pleasant I don’t even need a computer in the mix. However, whatever I upload to LR CC is automatically downloaded to my PC and also stored there (in case something happens and one can’t access the cloud, this is my paranoia backup.)
I also use it frequently on my phone, when I want to edit a photo on the go and upload it to IG. Love it!
WesCandela - E s s e n t i a l
Started taking pics on a semi professional level seven years ago
I am mediately began using Adobe Lightroom.
Over the years as that application has advanced and features has been added, each new version presents a whole new slew of options for photographers.
When the app came out and I realized I could sync my mobile library with my master Lightroom catalog at home. I was thrilled...but there were some very important adjustment settings not included.
As the years pass, the app has evolved, presenting users with the frees and there are now a fantastic amount of options that come close to the develop settings on the Lightroom CC application.
Adobe had done fantastic work with this program, always, but it's these extra things features if you will that make him an absolute necessity for a photographer.
Thank you Adobe. Please keep it up!!
DrBarryS - Good start
Adobe has established a new cloud based infrastructure that appears to be a solid start. Not as elegant as Photos, it offers many more features in terms of organization and asset management. Adobe’s challenge will be to quickly improve, optimize, and add features in the crowded and feature rich photo cloud storage market while charging a premium price. Obviously the best user for this app are those who are already using Lightroom desktop. Unfortunately Adobe has created avoidable confusion in their poorly handled naming of their Lightroom ecosystem: as an example it is nearly impossible to do specific Google searching on a LR product.
AOANLA - Home bar distracting on iPhone X and later
OK, first off this app is overall great. It's the only "real" photo editing app for mobile devices that I've found, it works really well, and it integrates beautifully with desktop Lightroom. It's regularly updated as well, with useful new features that make it more and more powerful. I've used it for years and I love it.
However, on iPhone X and later, the home bar
that sits at the bottom of the screen is annoying. These phones have no physical phone button and have a visual reminder instead which looks like a line across the bottom of the screen. Especially when used in landscape orientation, it blocks a significant portion of the display and reduces screen real estate (and therefore the viewing size of the photo I'm editing) significantly. It serves no function and there's no way to disable it on the user end.
Many apps will automatically hide the home bar to allow a fullscreen view. I hope that Lightroom Mobile adds that functionality soon, and I'll revise this review when they do.
Plaid Knight - Great functionality wrapped in an okay UI
Functionality is great, as you’d expect. But the app needs some UI enhancements. Menu is hidden behind an “Lr” icon for some reason; I literally never found it until I looked online for something else. The app doesn’t use native iOS scrolling, so it feels very strange to use. The editing interface needs some work, especially when using the local selection tools (when using a few dozen of these on one photo, the app has a hard time knowing whether I’m trying to adjust the size of the currently-selected element or selecting a different one that’s next to or overlapping it).
samjray105 - A great app for beginners that don’t have Photoshop
A take a lot of sunrise shots, so I opted to pay the $5/mo to get the selective adjustments so I can still see the foregrounds without compromising the vivid colors of the sky. As you take more shots, you’ll find endless ways to utilize the selective adjustments. For example, I took a pic of a drooping giant foxtail weed head covered in dew, and there was a tiny cucumber beetle on the top. I adjusted the overall lighting and colors to my liking, and then used the paint option on the selective adj and only increased the exposure on the tiny insect to bring out its green. Very pleased so far!
bexcontreras - Great App
To start, lemme just say I love this app! It's a condensed, mobile version of the real thing. However there is another app by Google I love: Snapseed. I'm having a dilemma between the two bc (1) Snapseed allows me to do all the things Lightroom does, however, it doesn't have the filter I use to keep my insta "theme/aesthetic", and (2) Lightroom has the filter I use but doesn't have a good way to edit portraits. I mean actually smoothing the persons skin, brightening their eyes, ECT... Also I own a 16 GB iPhone so, as both take up a lot of space, I really can't have both apps. I'm asking developers to create a way to edit people's faces and so forth!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!🙏🏼🙏🏼

ilovetwelve - LOVE IT (but)
Not going to pretend I don’t LIVE in Lr and love it endlessly... the new version is wonderful (omg – VERSIONS – life-changing), but please please please make it faster to be able to edit newly imported photos!!! I used to be able to send a photo from my camera roll to Lr, then open Lr app on my phone, chuck a preset on it almost immediately / after a few seconds of loading, export the finished photo and be on my way. Now I have to wait 20 years+++ for the photo (preview? backup? original?) to load. Please fix and then it will be perfect :)
JebSSS - Great program but has it’s issues
Started to use this to manage my photos, edit them and share across all of my devices.
I have to say although it is pretty easy in many ways there are some things that aren’t particularly intuitive or even seem dumb.
Having to manually tell Lightroom to update the view of a folder to show images you have just exported to it is IMHO stupid - I am sure there is some great excuse related to syncing etc. but come on it is just cumbersome.
I have also mistakenly added stars to every image, somehow, which has basically wiped on the ratings I had painstakingly added. (Should the program not ask if your sure?)
Also lost lots of metadata because you have to manually tell lightroom to save all changes to the file. Ahhh
You get used to it, but I have to say, if there was a comparable program without these flaws (awesome photographer control) I would probably jump.
Also issues with smart folders (shared across devices) keeping up to date with the folders they are based on. Stupid system
Anyway, the program is awesome in many ways for being able to apply edits across many photos etc.
dutrar - Don't bother
If you only want to use your photos within Lightroom, then fine. But if you plan on saving a few images to your device or share them to another mobile app I wish you the best of luck...
The app has the most ridiculous bulk select feature I've ever seen (if you want to easily select a large number of images). First, if you swipe your finger from one image to the next it doesn't pick up the rows so you have to swipe over every single image. That doesn't sound too bad, except that it doesn't scroll the view once you get to the bottom of your screen and to make matters worse, once you've selected a group of images in one go, you can't do it again. It unchecks them all. I am literally about to throw my phone at the wall. How this passed QA testing is beside me.
sinapuppet - Update deleted my whole catalog
After not using my PC Lightroom Classic for the last 2 weeks I opened it this morning to find it has updated itself. In this update it has deleted every single photo from my catalog and pretty much looks like I’ve never used it before. After updating itself it also will not run without being connected to the internet and forces the app to close. I often use Lightroom Classic without the internet and it was never an issue before this update. Trying to speak to a tech from the help forum is just as useless as they kept telling me just to sign in while connected to the internet. The app is already signed into my account so I do not understand the app’s continual forced closing or where my photos have all disappeared to!!!!
live.love.music.liv - Used to be so easy
I’m not sure what has changed recently but my old trusty way of using lightroom is so much of a hassle now. Exporting images on my Mac is ALWAYS a hassle, I get errors every single time with full size files not being found, despite being saved and imported locally, so instead I try to export using the app on my phone and crashes. It has crashed every single time during my 7 attempts to export 100 images. Feeling pretty frustrated and stuck.
Never used to be this hard, in fact it was always easy. Now that I have to ‘export’ and not ‘save to [local storage file]’, neither laptop nor phone apps have been very enjoyable to use. Don’t know why that makes any difference but it does.
Grazstarr - Great app. The new rebuild is amazing.
Except for not being able to export high resolution images. I just want to be able to export large printable jpegs. High res versions. The highest export jpeg is 72dpi. I’ve had all my gear stolen (traveling) and I’m trying save images from my camera to my phone and upload them to the cloud in a high res version for printing later on but it’s not possible. Amazing app, but without a high res option for export, even just jpeg, it’s not complete for me. But killer app apart from that!
Jye Atkinson - Powerful tool
A super powerful and handy tool to have on the go! It carries nearly all of the same features as the computer program and allows for accurate editing with great colour correction to bring your images to life. The preset feature is great for saving your favourite settings and makes for speedy editing to suit the vibe of the image.
abraxastv - Adobe- I Hate your Subscription Application!!!
I’m lucky to have purchased the last none subscription version of Lightroom for my Mac, it in convenient having to use the Mac to edit all my photos but hey, I can and it’s free as I own my software, I detest adobes and other software makers annual subscription based use of software and apps, I no longer use AVID Media composer for that same reason. I would gladly have purchased the upgrade to the pro version of Lightroom app for my iPhone, iPad, however, I refuse to keep paying US$70 per year for software that’s not worth that sort of money, so sorry ADOBE but you have lost another sale.
2000mil - Best mobile photo editing I’ve found
Lightroom is simple to use with a great amount of control. I love it and use it on pretty much every image I publish. I love being able to copy setting to apply. To multiply images to save time on workflow. It crashes occasionally and can slow down when the cache get full.
Still, without doubt, the best photo editing app available for a phone or iPad
bravo.romeo - Not Compatible with iPad Air 2019!
I just spent $1000+ on a new iPad Air only to find it is not compatible with Lightroom for iPad! The app works on my three year old phone, but not a two month old iPad that’s almost identical to the previous generation iPad Pro (which is supported). Seriously angry!
All for Alice - Needs syncing edits on multiple photos feature
It’s a step towards a fully mobile editing solution for professional photographers. But not having this feature to select multiple photos and syncing edits is essentially a dealbreaker. Having to copy settings over hundreds of photos isn’t fun! Please ADOBE, it’s been asked for many years ago in your forums. Why are you ignoring this essential feature?
cassieee.s - Photos not appearing.
Love the app, but unfortunately after the recent update I can’t upload my recent photos to edit them. This is highly irritating and I can’t seem to find a way around it at the moment. They seem to be the screenshots that aren’t showing up for me. I went to the screenshots file as I thought this would help, but then nothing would load. Please fix this issue.
mezurashii - Great editing app, but need more export options
Best app yet for editing photos - powerful and precise where I want it to be. It's created some wonderful pictures from otherwise ordinary ones.
Please consider adding more options for exporting images... but I look forward to lossless format (PNG, TIFF, etc.) the most.
Look particularly forward should lossless exports come into consideration for release!
Azry Suimi - Please read carefully as I wrote with my honest thought
I really love the apps and I even have subscribed for it. My only problem is my phone will get too hot each time in the editing process even with the new iPhone Xs Max. It has happened the same with my 8 Plus. I don’t know if this was the Apple problem, hopefully there are reviews about it as well.
illuminati m9 - Used to be good
I really enjoy using Lightroom to edit photos, however, with a recent update the application has been completely ruined for me. My pre paid subscription no longer works now and so I’m now forced to edit my RAW shots using Photoshop on my PC. To add to this, now that Lightroom doesn’t think I have premium features that were once free for everyone such as sharing options have now been removed and are now only accessible through the subscription based service. PLEASE FIX ALL THESE ISSUES!!!
Cgilford - DO NoT PAY FOR SUBSCRIPTION
If you are wanting to use Lightroom on both your computer and phone, do not pay for the apple subscription. The apple one is not recognised on the computer and then when you cancel your apple subscription to upgrade to the full version which you can use on both devices, you have to wait till the end of the month. So are pretty much stuffed until then. It should clearly state that the subscription locks your adobe account to your apple device.
Nicole Thorne - Presets
Love this app for when I don’t have time to use my laptop version or want a quick edit on an iPhone photo, BUT PLEASE have a way to add your own presents into the ‘preset’ option tab.
I have my presents linked via images which I can copy and paste settings from but this is a real pain when wanting to compare them.
Thank you :)
PhilipCB - Surprised
I started using the app for its camera shooting which is great as I can produce a DNG file. The most exciting part of the app is how it integrates with Adobe portfolio. This will make my life a lot easier when updating my folio even when I not near a computer.
La Tramp - Why can’t I apply presets to video? Doesn’t make sense.
I’ve always used my presets on my computer with Lightroom on videos, but the mobile app doesn’t. And this is very annoying.
Also, when you edit photos on your phone then they will look a bit different on the computer.
I like this app, but I wish it was for videos as well.
Derror - Used to be great
The Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop apps used to be excellent photography tools. And truthfully still are. But it just seems with each new update they tighten their grip on enforcing you to pay subscription to use effects that used to be free to use. And if you are a professional photographer and can write this off in tax then great. But there are some of us who are just using this as a hobby. Thats my rant done. Thanks Adobe for a great run.
Patrick Wetzler - Thought it was amazing
I have nothing but good things to say about this app the editing system is easy to navigate the editing presets are really good all of my photos I put on my Instagram page is edited using Lightroom. patski07 instagram
Sambolini - Resizing/export options
It would be fantastic if there were more specific export options beyond maximum available quality such as TIFF. Photo resizing options are sorely missed, this would be a wonderful option to have for people shooting with the Moondog anamorphic lens. It’s a shame that most mobile photo work still has to be done on desktop because of these missing options.
jo jo siwalater - Recent Update
After the most recent update, I can’t see or upload some photos that are in my camera roll. It’s crucial for me to be able to access all my photos in the app due to work reasons. Hope this gets fixed quickly
Annonymous123431 - Great, could be better
I love the overall usage of the app, it’s just super slow, and the force press items aren’t available: so if I forcepress to get the camera to open when the app starts, nothing happens, as with the rest of the force press options... on which note, why are there double ups of the icons when you forcepress?
Astrakyl28 - Outstanding program
Easy to use, a must for any photographer. Take your images to the next level. Have you images all in one spot with an easy to find library.
AussieGamer275yt - Good App
Great App, use it all the time! no issues apart from the fact that Lightroom keeps making some of my JPEG photos “RAW” making it so i can’t edit them without buying premium. Is this a money tactic to get people to pay??
kiarnebanister - Update
My app has updated and it will now not let me into the app as it goes out of it instantly and has for a few days since the update
I love the app but not really worth it if I have to delete it and then download the presents all again.
LRob96 - Fantastic
Lightroom is a great product from adobe. It works seamlessly across all of my devices, which makes transferring of photos easy. Highly rate the app and don’t see my toolbox without it.
Xbellybuttonx - Nearly perfect!
Still haven’t managed to find a way to stop my iphone auto syncing to the cc library, which is becoming quite a pain.
Other than that it has everything I need for fast quick edits on my phone.
Cartaaar - Absolutely Incredible!!
Is an amazing app that you can have on the go anywhere you want and access any photos already uploaded to the adobe cloud! So worth the money!
DylanMsound - Great concept, but unusable
Both desktop and iOS apps need bandwidth limiting! Every time I’m uploading in either, my entire businesses internet grinds to a halt and I become the most hated person in the office. I don’t suffer this issue with other programs like Dropbox, where it can be limited.
corky1008 - Finally!
Finally a photo editing app that gives you real editing power. Hoping more features will be added in future releases.
nessab93 - Amazing App!
This is an amazing app for editing an sorts of pictures, be it portraits or landscapes, this app will not disappoint you! Best part of this app is that along with some inbuilt filter modes, it lets the user adjust various parameters on their own! A big 👍🏻
D.S.7. - Can’t live without it
Simply the best app to edit all your pictures. From professional ones to simple ones.
Astroboysoup - Perfect professional tool
Perfect for quick edits and touch ups on the go. All syncs which makes it so easy for switching between devices.
earthlingpeace - Love it
Easy to use and makes learning the basics of photo editing much easier. Very accessible via laptop, internet and phone.
Nick Bertke - I’m stunned
Having sworn by Halide and Snapseed for years, I’m thoroughly impressed with this package. Selective Brush editing with RAW files. HDR RAW files. Pitch & Tilt level. Noise Reduction control, optics correction. There’s almost nothing I’m left to ask for here.
JaliJJ - Functional
It allows me to edit my photos on the go with ease, a great lite version of the CC version. Would recommend for any photographer to be able to be productive on the move
Dehni79 - The best!
Easy to use, can take it everywhere with the LR app on my phone and makes Instagram a joy to use knowing I have a great editing tool at my fingertips x
Harlekkin - Terrible performance on XS Max
I used to love this app on my iPhone X, but on the XS Max shooting in Auto, Pro and HDR mode and RAW produces terrible results to the point of being unusable. I took a photo of a red neon light and in the preview it looked amazing. When I loaded the photo to edit it it was GREEN instead of red. Nothing I did in the settings could undo the change. Perhaps the smart HDR and app are conflicting, but please fix it!
Madiilowe - Such a good app!
One of the best in phon editing apps! I snap a few on my Nikon & import them into my phone, I fiddle with them in LR Quickly to see if it’s what I’m going for (: so helpful
Chantelise - Request: Update Instagram Sharing
Hi, can you please update the app so that you can share to an Instagram story? Currently it only lets your share as an Instagram post. VSCO allows this option in their app.
Xtrem`Zero - iPhone 10 adjustment
iPhone 10's home slide bar overlaps with the toolbar down the bottom, it's very annoying to accidentally switch app when I'm actually switching tools. Please increase the bottom padding of the tool bar!
Lightroom-lover - Love it!
The only bad thing about it is that it makes my phone photos look too good, so I’ve not been using my SLR nearly enough!
Evan nick name - Well the update was good in theory
Got to save a few photos to file, and now it freezes to a white screen, this was potentially a great idea even though not a huge update....
i wanted to make some folder from dropbox public and save straight to it fro LR. Cant do that because the app hangs on a white screen!
Does the app get tested before being released?
helltrackdeath - Great editing tool
I was just about to send some pictures to an edited but then someone recommended this to me
b-raffer - Great app
Love it, it’s almost easier to use than the desktop version. My only gripe is the lack of a professional watermarking feature, otherwise solid app.
Bradularr - Ha
Deleted when I found out that trying to copy edits from one photo onto another is a premium feature. I have enough subscription fatigue without paying for granular features like that.
Colaispru - Lightroom CC review
Super easy to navigate and use!! The editing tools and features that they have are all so good so I can easily create what I’m imagining :)
Deanis1985 - Super Easy - Super Effective
Great for tweaking some of your smartphone shots - makes it very easy to make the most of your pictures!
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
Carci - Love it
Game changer! I bought a bunch of presets and have just started using them. My IG posts have more likes. Not sure if it’s a coincidence. But I’ll take it
iainlowe - Amazing app for mobile photo processing
I love this app and use it daily in conjunction with the desktop version. Almost everything about it is amazing except for the lack of background sync of photos (Adobe, that's -1 star).
Other than that, this app has replaced Snapseed for me since it can take RAW format photos and allows me to edit on the go.
Memory 2 - Selective Brush
Selective brush still does not work with my i phone 7plus. Leaves a dark circle point at brush point. The brush future does work with my i pad pro 9.7. Yes I did today's latest upgrade.
825492 - Only premium?
I downloaded this “free” app but no features work without paying 7$ a month. Every time you click on anything (ex crop or light) an ad pops up for premium and nothing works.
Bo Dandy - Crashes
Keeps crashing while editing, using iPhone 7 plus.
*Thanks for the response, I emailed you.
ejbroseph - Most advertised feature
It's most advertised feature is unaccessible without paying a subscription. Without it it is the same as any other photo editing software
Tsuyostan - Great app
I love this app it's my go to photo editing software. BUT the app doesn’t allow me to change between languages without having to switch the language on my iPad entirely. This is a problem for me as my IPad for work is constantly being used in 4 different languages!! From my 4 coworkers it would be awesome if I didn’t have to constantly go into the settings and switch language.
RebecccaCampbell - Unable to unsubscribe.
I did the free trial and now I am unable to unsubscribe. This app does not show up in subscriptions under your Apple ID. I am being charged monthly and still unable to unsubscribe. When told to report a problem / request a refund it states “does not meet the conditions”. Be careful when using your Touch ID.
Kchantraine - Good but not great
It's saving me a ton of time being able to do my first pass selects while on the run but it's missing key features like colour tagging / filtering. It's also annoying that you have to make a collection just to sync.
juliana.nana - bestdressed
here cos of ashley
mon Wh - No way to turn watermark off or adjust it
I searched on how to remove or edit my watermark and its nowhere to be seen. Why is it hidden? Can someone help, all formus say to go into Sharing Options but it doesn’t appear anywhere in my app. Please help.
Alenka.ps - I lost everything with the recent update
With the recent update, my entire library got wiped. Presets I manually created, spent hours on. I had about 70 presets total. I use this app almost exclusively to showcase my work on Instagram, and having this happen was detrimental. The sad part was there was NOTHING - no apology - NOTHING from the developers. I had to go on an online forum to find hundreds of other people in the same predicament equally upset by this apps lack of care for its creators.
Star6Nik - Can’t upload photos to the app
I can no longer upload photos to the app!
This new version is really disappointing.
Can someone please fix this problem now.
x_tyna - Help
The new version erased all my photos and presents what I do now ?!
nilomanalo - Great app but need to simplify subscriptions
I subscribe through my iPad and when I opened the app in my iPhone it’s telling me to subscribe. Do I need to pay twice (iPad and iPhone) to get the full features on both devices? Kinda cash grab!
BHGiff - No Sony ZV1 raw photos
When is support for Raw Sony ZV1 going to be added?
ecardiff - Great Until the most recent “bug fix”
I’ve been using this app for years and it has always been great. I had lots of presets (purchased and self-made) and I used it to take pictures for my blog and pictures of my family, including my infant daughter.
I logged on today to find that everything over the past 3 years is gone. Every blog picture, ever picture of my daughter, every single picture has disappeared.
I am beyond heartbroken and have been unable to recover the photos that have vanished, not to mention the $$ from the presets I have purchased over the years.
Please, please save any pictures you need to your own device. You cannot trust LR to save your photos.
shannoune - WORST BRAND EVER
They make an update in the apps and all the preset and photos of user just gone and the only thing they can’t say, it’s sorry.
JCFargo011 - Old Photos/Edits All Gone
App was good until the recent updates — it updated and removed all of my old photos/edits ... that’s about 3/4 yrs worth of photos!
SuperPlastro - Lost everything
Auto updated to version 5.4 and lost all of my photos and presets when I opened the app. All my photos and paid presets, gone. Completely unacceptable!
zahid160 - Photo lost
I just lost my valuable photos and presets I made from last 2 years with my hard work
#worst update ever
Nicollefry - Not happy
The app auto updated for me and I lost ALL my previously edited photos AND presets. Not happy at all
Rapp1116 - No red eye removal tool????
Seriously. This is done in my opinion to force you to use another version of their software. This is amateur hour softwarennnnn
alcphotographe - Undo button missing
As of yesterday my undo button has disappeared. I didn’t make any changes as far as I know to either app or OS. That has never been a problem until now and is very inconvenient.
C Wahl - Best app I’ve ever used
The mobile app is better than the desktop software. The only adobe product I can say that about.
The gourmet cook - Lights app
It is NOT free at all. The download is free and there is a short free « TRIAL » period.
mack7225 - Paid for subscription, but didn’t get features
Paid for the monthly subscription, saw them instantly charge my bank account and the app said I was good to go. Then I went to use a premium feature and the “subscribe” screen pops up again. Tried deleted the app to reinstall install, restarting my phone etc. And nothing has fixed the issue. Tried cancelling my subscription thinking heck I’ll take the $6 hit and pay again just to get access to the features I need right now. Now hitting both subscribe or renew purchase comes up with a “duplicate purchase” error and STILL I have no access to the setting
AlliedRivals - Great
What else do you want?
bombim 2 time slim - Love it
Good service, friendly staff, user friendly, highly addictive.
ep♓️ - Can’t even get into the app
I’ve downloaded this app twice in the span of maybe three months and it always crashes right after I log in keeping me out of the actual app.
Kyle Cain - Used to be a one time purchase
Now they bleed artists dry exorbitant monthly fees, simply because they can.
Rickzwalk - Newest update doesn’t work
I love this app but the newest update has made it unusable!! Please fix and I’ll change the rating back.
leah anne b - Crashes
This app crashes over and over again since the most recent update. Also I paid for a month of premium and it won’t reflect that
Kiran.Solanki - Not working after 5.3.0 update
Was working just fine before the 5.3.0 update in my iPhone 11 pro max. Post 5.3.0 update the creative cloud sign and the photo both constantly show buffer circle with all the edit options disabled. The 1 star is a temporary rating, I will change it once the issue gets fixed.
nb_car_spotting - Watermark not available
jackboy115 - What hapnd
I cant edit my photos in the latest update of Lightroom... i cant even load my photos....
ClicheSin - The new updates are awesome.
I , LOVE , THIS , NEW , UI , UPDATE ! ! !
Finally Adobe apps have an uniform design! I put all the Adobe apps in a same homepage, just imagine this. So satisfying!
The old design that each app had different UI was a pain.
Btw, waiting for the Creative Cloud app updates.
ofaring - Correction:
Force close and reopen resolved the issue. No, the app wasn't left open for an extended period of time. Yes, I regularly reboot.
I rarely try to stay on the cutting edge of app development, because of how often bugs are intro'd with new releases - especially major changes. I broke that rule today because I was excited for the new features Adobe is introducing.
That's right. Neither profiles or my presets will load. Next step will be uninstalling and reinstalling.
So, if you haven't yet, perhaps wait for the next point release before giving this a spin. (5.3.x)
CheyenneD<3 - Update gone wrong
After the update I am not able to edit any photos & I’m not able to copy edit settings from another picture.
squahmo - Excellent App
Great for editing pictures, very intuitive.
Headspace:Me - Usefull
It is easy to use and fun to play around with when editing your photos! I enjoyed using this app!
TerchablueToronto - Portable Fixes
Love this app as I can fix pictures for work anywhere and any time
RaeMelon - Can’t Upload Photos
I couldn’t import any photos into the app. All the settings are what they should be to add photos, but it still will not let me. I’ve reinstalled it, restarted my phone and yet, it still won’t work.
Dreamspawner - Fabulous Photo Editor
Chamane Red Tara. - Merci
filxy - Photos don’t open
It doesn’t even open any photos from my phone
coronavirus 2020 - where’s the brightness
this app works for me overall but in having trouble finding a way to change the brightness of a picture. is it just not available on mobile? i’m using an iphone xr
Great Game plus it's Free! - Great app for photo editing, but can’t delete photos for space...
I love this app, and use it almost every day to take pictures, edit them, and post them on my photography Instagram account. But, my iPhone 7 is running out of space and I tried deleting photos that I don’t need. It says that they are deleted, but the app still takes up the same amount of space as before. Someone help me please!
kwri457 - Unable to use premium when paid for
Bought premium and the mobile app won’t restore the purchase. Essentially paid for the subscription for nothing. Unhappy with the mobile version 😡
jay2001867 - won’t let me upload
Why won’t it let me upload photos anymore?? was working yesterday. Not now

arthur.n - Slower than it used to be
After using what is now Lightroom Classic for years on my MacBook, I changed my workflow to use Lightroom on my iPad because it was considerably faster and more responsive than classic. Lately, however, changes to the app have made it feel as sluggish as classic on the computer. Loading an image, cropping, or making adjustments used to be instantaneous and now sometimes takes seconds. I really enjoy using my iPad for photo editing but using Lightroom is beginning to feel like a chore.
Pittsburghswo - A failure of Adobe
This app has continually become worse with each update. Currently using on a 256GB iPhone X. When dealing with any photos is causes the phone to overheat to the point I have to put it in the freezer to cool it down...and it only happens with THIS app. My wife can load up a single frame, iPhone phone for manipulation/editing and she can’t even get through a simple “auto” before the screen dims. Any form of selecting a portion of the photo, adjusting color or brightness and the app just gets worse. Phone overheats, app shuts down, etc.
I’ve written Adobe about this on numerous occasions as a PAYING customer and I can’t even get a basic troubleshooting email in return...or ANY email in that case. So, after a year of trying...I’m finally placing my honest review.
Don’t waste your money...
Ana1984777 - What is happening?!
I use this app on phone and computer every single day for my photography... however, I just updated and now I can’t edit without it crashing. It won’t save anything. My photos that have already been edited have lost their edits. My phone and computer are not syncing edits even though it says it is and I’ve lost some of the presets I made. Thankfully I have SOME of them exported onto a drive.
I updated both the computer version and my phone. I’ve restarted everything. Nothing is working and now as soon as I open the app, my whole phone freezes up and glitches even after I close the app out!
Please please fix it! I’m so tired of paying for things that don’t work...
Katy8663 - The app keeps dimming my screen
I have all of my settings set correctly for auto dimmer. So even if the battery on my phone is running low, it is set to NOT dim automatically. Only while using this app, my phone dims extremely. I’ll be editing a photo and by the time I finish one photo my phone is so dim I can barely see. I KNOW that it is the app because as soon as I leave the app, my phone brightens again. This is extremely frustrating as I desperately need to edit my photos with this amazing app. But I can’t even see what I’m doing. Please fix this bug. Signed extremely aggravated customer.
goldiealex - You deleted all of my images and presets!
absolutely ridiculous that i had to uninstall the app because off a Bug causing me not to be able to upload images from my camera roll. i would click them and nothing would happen. then upon reinstalling it all of my presets and images that i worked hard on are now gone. absolutely ridiculous that you have to have the paid subscription for us to be able to access the photos and presets we worked hard for. i wouldn’t have deleted the app if it wasn’t glitching! and had i have known all my things would be deleted i would have never uninstalled it! and honestly i highly doubt my images are not somewhere on your servers! unbelievable!
ghosttrooper127 - My New go to Editing App
As a long time desktop Lightroom user, I was thrilled to have it come to mobile because of one particular thing: presets. Having my library of desktop presets I have created/purchased over the years on my phone is incredible. That plus the advanced education editing features, the ability to shoot raw photos, and the fantastic edit syncing with the desktop application makes this app the best possible mobile editing app. Excellent work on Adobe’s part.
DoctorTaco123 - Finally, a photo editing app with custom presets!
Both the computer and iOS versions of the app are streamlined and easy to use. The cloud feature is incredible helpful as well, since I can now edit photos anywhere with the same capacity as a desktop program. My only complaints - for both the computer and iOS version - are that batch editing is not possible, and that the Edit History panel from previous Lightroom programs does not exist either.
There are improvements that need to be made, but this version of Lightroom is still utterly amazing! 👍
Mlaguardia - Unable to renew subscription
I recently purchased the premium subscription almost two weeks ago, and was using it without issue until today. I was suddenly unable to use Premium features, and after some investigation in the app, I saw my subscription had expired. After selecting “renew” I received an error message saying “unable to complete purchase, please contact support if this issue persists”. I checked my Apple Subscription for the app and saw I was still subscribed. After calling Adobe support multiple times and being passed around to appropriate support people, the issue was still unresolved. I called Apple and they said my subscription was not expired (set to renew automatically mid-June) and that everything looked good. In addition to contacting Adobe support I have:
-updated my phone and app with the most recent software
-restated my phone multiple times
-deleted and re-downloaded the app
-canceled my subscription and then reactivated it
And I am STILL experiencing the same issue. I would appreciate assistance as I use this app for my job and it is negatively impacting my workflow.
masnun - Truly the future of photography
Has the best camera of all the apps I tried. The HDR mode is simply awesome. The auto tuning of RAW images are just perfect. Provides fine grained control over my photos. This is a must have app for anyone interested in photography. The $4.99 per month subscription is totally worth it. I went ahead and bought their $9.99 package which includes the desktop app and 1TB of space. Lightroom and Photoshop Express for mobile are the only two apps I frequently use in my day to day photography.
cookiecookis - Lost Pictures
I’m in love with Lightroom, it’s the only thing I edit my pictures on as a photographer. The only problem I have is that my phone suddenly broke and didn’t work, so I got a new phone, but I had to re-download the app. I opened the app and all of my pictures were gone. They weren’t in my camera roll either due to my iCloud backup storage being full. So I lost about 200 pictures and I’m super upset about it:( i stupidly deleted them from my dslr camera. I figured my photos that were saved on the app would still be there after re-dowloading...
alexandersawyer - Great app but no portrait features
I really love having the power of Lightroom on iOS, but I just don’t understand why it can’t process portrait mode photos. Plenty of other 3rd apps can edit the photo, Lightroom just seems to flatten it completely and remove and depth effect. It would also be nice to be able to shoot using portrait mode right in Lightroom instead of having to use the native camera app. I know other apps (Camera+) does this but I’m not sure how Apple lets portrait mode work with raw. Would love to at least be able to edit a portrait mode photo!
Ktbodo - Update: Not compatible with device.
Thank you Adobe for the quick response and pointing out that I may have the wrong version on my iPad. That was the problem, the iPhone version was installed on my iPad automatically when I installed it on my iPhone first.
I have an iPad Air. Just started using Light Room for the first time a couple of months ago and now it will not update. Am I missing something here? If the update is not compatible, it should not show up in my updates.
tree - LR User for Years
I love this app. I shoot mostly film, but do snap photos on my phone often. Great for doing what I need directly through the phone. Pretty bummed a lot of the presets I had been using are now gone (the multiple punch options, ALL the b&w film presets, etc.).
Also, maybe I don’t use the app enough, but I feel like the interface changes every month. So as soon as I’m learning what this swipe does or that save feature or whatnot, next time I use the app it’s different or gone. I mean, I’m all for progress, but it seems a bit haphazard. Maybe if I used it more frequently it wouldn’t be a problem.
Keep up the great work!
#fitt - Great App, But I have a Question!
It's an amazing app and out of all the photo editing apps I have ever downloaded for mobile this has to be my fave!!! But I have had one question, and I haven't used adobe so I'm not sure if this is the same thing, but can you change the background of a photo? If that question is answered all my problems are solved! Overall this is an amazing app and would definitely recommend for anyone who wants to edit their photos quickly and easily!!!
briantforce - Workflow on the go
This app has changed my productivity in a huge way. To preface I shoot film and don’t do a lot of post work so this allows me to make virtually all of my edits on the go.
I am able to scan at my PC import and add to a collection and my shots are available on my phones / iPad where I can do my usual crops and curve adjustments if needed. All edits save on the mobile device and back in my Lr library on the PC. Plus this is a great way of getting your shots on a mobile device to upload at web res.
NumboNine - Garbage company
After a glitch in Lightroom’s syncing I lost about 350 very important photos. They are stuck in a folder called “syncing issues” and after waiting on hold for Adobe customer service for over an hour twice (giving up the first time) I finally got through via chat and was told there was nothing they could do. I cancelled my subscription and will never use another Adobe product again. Then I discovered that transferring my photo library via Lightroom meant I have thousands of duplicates, for instance of photos that I changed the orientation on.
This product may have plenty of highlights but I would avoid it and it’s awful company like the plague. There are better alternatives out there.
Triple ice sundae - Great raw editing on the phone
I use LR on my phone a lot while traveling so I don’t need to carry a laptop. It works great for editing raw files on the go.
The 2 things the app needs are:
1. I want to photo-merge panoramas. I shoot a lot of multi-photo panoramas on my DSLR and would love to merge them on the go.
2. Similarly, I’d like to merge multiple photos to HDR. I shoot a lot of bracketed photos on my DSLR and want to combine them into an HDR image. The app already can shoot hdr images with the phone camera so it would be great if the same merge algorithm could apply to a selection of photos already in my library.
SaltyChinchilla - Doesn’t Save True To Editing
I would love to give this app 5 stars however I’m giving it 3 for one huge reason. When I edit a picture to my liking, it looks great, but when I save the picture to my phone, it doesn’t look the same. The color is washed out and the texture isn’t the same as my edited photo. I have a screenshot with a side by side comparison but there’s no where to post it here so if a developer sees this, please know this is a very unsatisfactory thing because if I wanted my picture to look the way it saves, I would have edited the picture to look like that in the first place.
Halfway-crook - App crashed and all my photos are gone!
I have been a loyal user of Lightroom for a while now and never had issues up until today. I opened the app to edit a photo I had taken and it crashed on me (I noticed it had been kind of glitchy for the last few weeks or so). When I opened it up again I noticed that it had deleted EVERYTHING from my gallery, over 300 edits. I was still signed into my account on the app. So I signed out and signed back to see if that would solve the issue but my account is still wiped clean, as if my account was brand new. All the folders are empty including the deleted folder. Is there any way to resolve this? Please help!
ForografíaChewy - Amazing Program
I’ll preface this by saying I’ve been using the desktop versions of Adobe products for years because I am a photographer and they work well with my workflow. This app has all the tools I need for on the go editing to make my raw and jpeg files looks beautiful. It is relatively easy to use and only takes a few minutes to get the hang of. I also love that it keeps all my images synced across the different phones I’ve changed between. Great work!
Nodelic - Good but...
Too limited. I’m very used to the Lightroom workspace, but it’s too limited right now. No tone curve adjustments, and user presets are limited to Desktop version only. Step in the right direction but overall I’m still not a fan.
Most irritating is that auto-sync is on by default and it just started pulling all of the junk photos I don’t want from my phone onto my adobe account. I wish they would leave this off and make it easier to find for people who want it on. I have so many photos on my cloud account now that I don’t want there, and I have to go through and delete all of them.
jck1rose - Back to being able to edit
I use this app constantly and it works well. However, recently the app would not allow me to select any photos to edit. The option to select photos from my phone's camera roll would appear but it would not load the photo into the Lightroom library for editing. I uninstalled and reinstalled it and it still didn't work. But it seems to have resumed working on its own now...so I'm very happy with it.
CHU.X - Perfect photo editing app on the go.
Dust removal and geometry adjustment, now the latest LR mobile inherits everything from the desktop version. Great job done by Adobe.
I am not usually carry my laptop around when traveling, this app has became my primary tool for retouching photos on the go. I shot in raw with my A7II and the powerful raw editing function of LR allows me to output some amazing retouched photo to share with my families/friends soon after that photo was taken. Also, the adobe CC can back up all photos imported to LR CC into the cloud, I can always make further adjustment to the photos on LR desktop version and PS after I return home.
Small advice: add the entire geometry adjustment function that is already available on LR desktop version to the mobile version. That can be very helpful especially for cityscape photos.
lemon_5 - It’s ok but I’m having a problem
I was editing photos today and I was trying to import a photo to edit from a album and every single photo I clicked it said “failed to import photo” and the tutorials are useless if you don’t pay for part of the app because it shows you how to use tools you don’t have access to but other than that I like to use this app for editing but I only have 2 photos edited and Lightroom is not letting me edit anymore and it’s not my iPhone storage because I have 7 gigabytes left so something needs to be changed otherwise it’s a pretty good app I guess.
GosBog - Could be a lot better
Adobe Lightroom CC is a okay editor but it isn’t worth downloading if you are looking for a reliable editor. I’m constantly reminded that there is a premium subscription which you need to do basically everything. Without premium which is an outrageous $10 per month for a program that does worse than the free ones, you can’t edit raw photos, heal Photos, or even do adjustments let alone the fact that there are very little ways to edit your photo for free.
This is why I don’t trust Adobe anymore, all their products are overpriced especially when I can go to a website and get the same and even better edits than on Adobe. Don’t get this app, save your storage!
rev112 - Great app.
I can tell there’s a team of talented people who care about their work behind the UX of this app. Could there be fixes? Yes- but this experience seems raw and untainted. No ads bombardment. No vaporware or rabbit holes. Just lines that you move to manipulate the distribution of colors in your picture. Addressing salience issues of certain graphing features and customization of layout would make the app even better but- it still transcends what other options are being offered on the market 👍
Jake2380 - Awesome mobile version
My friend always gave me a hard time about editing on the phone. After a few pics, he started to appreciate it. When out and about, this is a great tool to have. The only downside is trying to make adjustments with the tip of your finger......but what do you expect, your trying to photo edit on your phone! Invaluable if you are out and about and need a super quick turn around with the use of the desktop version of Lightroom.
skylarrkenzie - missing one thing!
honestly i love this. i used to use like 4-5 different photo editing apps since they all had different things i wanted and now everything is in one app! the only other editing tool i am forced to go to another app for is to add a dust/vintage feel to my photos. in the app Afterlight you have the option to add a dust overlay to your photos which makes them look.... dusty lol and kind of like an old polaroid picture that has a fold/crack in it. they recently made the app no longer free and would LOVE if this app got a similar feature!
Bails_notlehs - As good as you’d think adobe could do
I’m a student and do photography on the side as a hobby/part-time job. Today I started really playing around with Lightroom on mobile and honestly I’ve never been so surprised at compatibility. The program is as intuitive as photoshop elements was. It recognizes RAW photos on your phone, it has all of the main editing functions and you can sync everything straight to your desktop. I am baffled at how well it translates to mobile.
Imagine20 - Great mobile photo editing software
Well thoughtout program with tools you need for quick editing in the mobile arena. But for the premium version, if needs better fine tuning controls like selective healing and cloning. A tab to select between the two on the phone version would be great and a way to stop brush from coming up when you are trying to just move the photo. It’s 90% a great software program but some tools like subject selection for the selective tool would be great for the mobile version too.
Elle Buchholz - So amazing!❤️
When my mom told me about how I could have Photoshop on my phone, I never realized how amazing it actually is! Lightroom has all the features and editing tools that you need to make your photos look as perfect as if they were taken by a fancy $300 camera. I love how my pictures look now that i have this app. This is a must-have for those people that love photography and don’t have photoshop. Easily accessible. Thank you for creating such an amazing app!😍❤️
Arron Garcia - Could be everything you need turns out to be everything you dislike
Lightroom is full of bugs and issues. On the phone it is a bit more reliable after bug after bug the only issue I have now is actually getting the app to save pictures to my camera roll without crashing. On the computer the app is stuck on a spinning circle. Trying to get in touch with customer support is like trying to find a hidden treasure. You’ll probably be directed to a forum where your question will go unanswered. Nonetheless the tools are almost worth the trouble.
rowboat01 - It’s so slow sometimes
The app lags so badly, it is so annoying when trying to edit quickly. I’m not sure why it started being so slow but it happens quite a bit now.
I’m also disappointed that they don’t have a “reshape” tool, a blur tool, or a way to layer photos.
I really wish they would fix it to where when you’re using the “heal” tool, you wouldn’t see every single circle from where you’ve already applied that effect. It makes it really hard to see and drag the circle you’re trying to move when it overlaps another
Taytaymaat - changing?
I’ve had Lightroom for a very long time. I was messing around with photos and noticed that my black pup was staying washed out unlike what she used to. I then took an old raw photo and attempted to edit it the exact same way as an old edited photo of that same snapshot and it turned out totally different. did the recent updates change the way the highlights, shadows and whites work because it’s not the same at all and i miss the old version. I can’t take away the shadows in my puppies dark fur anymore.
ilikemyrealname - Has one really annoying bug!
This app works really well outside of actually exporting your edited pictures to your camera roll. More times than not, Lightroom will say it’s going through the motions of exporting but when it says it’s finished, the picture doesn’t show up in my camera roll. In most cases I have to export 2-4 times before Lightroom actually performs the export. Super strange and highly annoying bug that’s been going on for at least the 1 month that I’ve been using this app daily for my puppy’s IG account. I really hope they fix this bug soon!
AdityaAM - Finally the update I’ve been waiting for
Full desktop experience added as well as tech preview long exposure love it.. crashed the app while capturing long exposure though but when you turn off and on again it’ll work. The results are not outstanding but it’s still technology preview hope they add a bulb mode after 5sec.. very happy update though giving all desktop features that were missing before 😊
Pyerce - One small thing
App is awesome overall, just one small thing that gets kind of annoying over time. When I’m editing if I switch to a different app, turn off my phone or leave the app in anyway it automatically reverts any edits I’ve done and goes back to the default. Sometimes it even goes back to the last photo I edited before the one I selected. Hopefully if it’s a bug it gets fixed because sometime I choose not to edit because I know I won’t have uninterrupted time to finish it.
SNunnelee - Nice, but there are other very good free options.
So I really like the manual camera mode~ I appreciate the manual zoom. But as far the photo editing goes, the free Snapseed app lets you do more, all for free! (Minus the manual camera mode). For one thing, you can use healing mode, whereas Adobe makes you subscribe. If you are already an Adobe subscriber, this app could be the ticket! But for the rest of us, you may want to stick with a free option like snapseed that lets you do more... I will be keeping this app around for the manual camera mode though. 👌🏼
ScentedLead - Great quality photos but no Apple Watch app but remote app.
This app has easy and intuitive controls of focus and exposure. Haptic feedback lets you know if the camera is level or if your focus is reset. The aspect ratios were carefully chosen (16:9, 3:2, 4:3, and 1:1) as are the grids (quarters, thirds, and golden ratio). One of the best camera apps I’ve ever used.
Sadly, there’s no Apple Watch app or remote app (like Camera Plus by Golden Delight). If your tripod or selfie stick doesn’t have a Bluetooth shutter trigger, or if you want to take a selfie with the back camera, you are out of luck.
Leschill - Glitch in the app, bad customer service.
I purchased premium upgrade yet I can’t access the premium features. When I try to use them, it kicks me back to the “upgrade now” page, but when I click to upgrade, it informs me I’m already subscribed. I contacted customer support, after wasting half an hour waiting to be connected and being transferred twice, they told me I’d have to wait until Monday to contact them because the correct team to help me works Monday to Friday. Understandable, except I had also tried contacting them on Friday morning (the day before) and never got connected to a representative. Very frustrating.
123heyheyhey - Unable to Use on iPhone X
The app will not let me edit the RAW photos that I took on my iPhone X without purchasing a Lightroom mobile premium features for $4.99/month (I am already a Creative Cloud Member). I try to complete the purchase of these features, but continue to be prompted with a message stating “unable to complete purchase“. I contacted Adobe support, where the representative then provided me with an incorrect self-help article in the Adobe forums that was completely irrelevant to my issue. The Adobe tech-support agent then ended the chat conversation with me. Sad to say that this app no longer serves any purpose to me, considering it was one of my favorite applications and Adobe failed to help me in any way...
RMU2015 - Constant Crashing - Paid User
App constantly crashes or freezes, prompting you to close the app when using the Healing feature, which is a PAID feature to begin with!
At first, I avoided paying the subscription and I had no problems using the app. Then I paid the subscription and started using the Healing feature, which would consistently crash the application. I use an iPhone 7 so it’s not an iPhone X, but it’s capable of running every other photography app I use...
Now that I’ve paid and started using the app more, it almost seems like there’s more crashes, freezing, etc. Makes no sense how an app has LESS functionality when paid for.
jennnibooo - Best editing app
Amazing app I love using it so much i can do so much with it although I hate it when I does not let me import photos when my storage is to high its so amazing and at times when you want to see the before and after for some reason it makes the photo blurry it it’s slow also when I’m color correcting it ruins the photo quality but I really do love it it’s amazing what you can do with it people ask me ALL the time what I use and I never want to tell them about this some what hidden gem😂
Chicle2012chs - Everything is okay BUT
Everything is okay with the app actually the best app out there! But there’s one glitch that annoys me sooooo much and it’s the healing section. Everytime I try to use it the app freezes and it’s annoying because I’m actually paying for this app...I can easily use a computer but as a young imaginer photographer I want to prove all you need is Lightroom it doesn’t matter if it’s in a computer or a phone. I feel the mobile app does just enough as it would do in a laptop
JohnCorb - Finally Lightroom mobile is getting closer to Desktop experience
Lightroom is really getting better and better! Apple Pencil support makes finally close to the Desktop app experience.
Still works fine most of the time, but never works 100%
Sometimes export to Camera Roll crashes after you selected 50 photos - never don't know why - and you start selecting from scratch and trying, trying, trying... to export all of them. Sometimes photos appear rotated when you expand them, but look perfectly fine in thumnbnail view or deskeop. Sometimes you cannot sync photos between this app and Lightroom Classic. Sometimes.... You never know what kind of a bug you will face in Lightroom but it always pops up in the middle when you don't expect it.
But in any case Lightroom mobile finally got much much better. A way to go! Yay.
Lindsayc11 - Good but could be (and should be) much better
While Lightroom mobile is an amazing on the go tool, if you’re primarily an iPad or tablet user the functionality is lacking. There are certain features (photo layering, HDR, lens correction) that the desktop version has, that are NOT available in the mobile app. Again, it’s great for on the go, but if you intend to use this as your primary editing software from an iPad/tablet, you’ll be missing out on essential features from adobe. It seems like it would be a relatively easy fix so hopefully soon.
Chlslkns - Greedy Company
I have been using Lightroom for a long time and suddenly it starts telling me I have to subscribe?! I get that it’s not a huge fee and you probably thought it was a good business move. If it was a small one time payment like most apps, I might do it but now I have to pay $60/year just to use the mobile app when it was literally FREE just last week? That was a dumb business move, guys. You don’t treat your loyal customers this way. I could afford it, but I just don’t want to hand my hard-earned money over to a greedy, selfish business like this. This app “update” left such a sour taste in my mouth. There are other fantastic photo editing apps for cheaper.
fugly_mofo - Sensei - No Thanks
Google products are provided for free, so I understand (don’t like, but understand) why they try to harvest data from my usage of their services for revenue. However I pay a lot for Adobe products and therefore have the expectation of having full control over my content and data, and that’s where Adobe Sensei is a complete turn off for me as a creative cloud subscriber.
The absolute last thing I want from any photo app or software is my photos being “analyzed” by anyone or anything other than me. Looks like Adobe is betting the farm on Sensei and subscriptions. I can live with the latter, not the former.
LauretteB. - Great but...
This is an excellent app, I love everything about it and I would give it a 5 star except for I can’t see all my presets under the user preset section. If I take a photo using the Lightroom app I can see all 16 presets but if I just import one from my camera roll I only see 8. This makes everything so confusing and in order to apply the preset I have to copy setting and paste which is very time consuming. Please let le know how to fix this, I would definitely change my review to a 5 star if this issue can be fixed and you let me know how.
Zimri Padilla - What?
This is a really great app to edit photos on the go. I take pictures often and this app has come in handy many times. However, I don't know if they cut the feature or if the trial expired. All I know is that I was able to edit raw photos for months. Now, it's telling me I need to have a creative cloud account, which costs money. Totally kills the experience for me. If you shoot jpeg and like it, this app is for you. But this push towards the cloud is just rubbish. I don't have a need for it since photoshop and Lightroom on a laptop is a lot of money and I have another photo editing program. Oh well. I guess back to VSCO.
