Lost all of my pictures when I upgraded.
by Shhdjsbdn on 2020/10/21 04:11
I was trying to edit some of my raw photos and it said I had to upgrade to the premium version. I paid the 4.99 and it upgraded my account but I lost every picture I had saved on my phone and my library is now blank. I’m very upset so until I can get this fixed definitely a 1 star app.
Was Good
by jp3to on 2020/10/20 12:57
The app was great until this last update. When I try exporting images, it locks up. It just says checking and never finishes
Export to camera roll doesn’t work
by @grozyan on 2020/10/20 07:00
Fix your thing, cmon, there is no even setting to let access camera roll in iOS settings. Add it!
Latest build messed things up
by Perpetual Nomad on 2020/10/18 18:36
This is my first product review, which I feel compelled to write in hopes that Adobe will read it & address the massive experience-killing bug it introduced with this version - probably on a Friday afternoon. As an 11 Pro user, I frequently take advantage of the 2X optical zoom lens. Cycling between active lenses in the control strip used to be a fairly simple endeavor: tap the icon, and the lens changes. This is no longer possible, because the icon now badly overlaps the big shutter button. Such a basic failure of UI that I’m not sure who cleared this for release. I had been using Lightroom for some time, even in favor of the native camera app, thanks to its array of powerful features. Thanks to this bug, taking photos with Lightroom is now an exercise in frustration. I should note that trying to hold down the icon in hopes that it will somehow “override” the shutter button & let me switch lenses did NOT work. I’ve managed to do it with this bug in place, but not without also taking a bunch of photos I didn’t want. This issue has been present for at least the past couple of months, and reinstalling the app did not resolve it - would have thought someone would notice a huge flaw like this by now. I wish we could include a screenshot with our reviews so I could show y’all just how bad it is. I really hope it’s gone in the next update! And while you’re at it, Adobe, please make it so we can switch to the lens we want without having to cycle between them in sequential order. Holding down the icon should bring up a menu of all 3 lenses & make it possible to select one & release the button. It would save a lot of time if trying to capture an elusive shot.
Latest update lost IG story option
by Roxy375 on 2020/10/18 06:04
Love the features of LR. The latest iOS update took away the option to share to IG stories, only able to post. And would be handy to have the option to export and override the original photo in iPhoto. Just an idea, but works well
Selective Edit
by mrs.mattis on 2020/10/18 03:31
Selective edit works only if I get it all in the first go. If I lift my finger, there is a problem. I cannot see where I am marking, and the erase tool doesn’t work half of the time. Otherwise, I can not recommend this app enough! I absolutely LOVE Lightroom.
Needs update
by Isaacd94 on 2020/10/16 18:06
The app is suddenly over-saturating every photo I upload. I’m having to turn the saturation down -4 to -6 to make it look like the original photo. I’m not clicking “auto” and this began shortly after last update
Awesome app

by NBLEYTE on 2020/10/13 13:33
How can I upgrade from the mobile version to the full version which allows for mobile and desktop? The question you just responded to with respect to watermark is not the one I asked a few days ago. Please reread my latest question. Thank you.

Fix battery drainage
by m4mud on 2020/10/09 18:52
Please fix the ridiculous battery drainage and heating issue on iPhone 8+. This is forcing me to use other apps. There must be something wrong with its optimisation with iPhone 8+. I don’t know if it’s only my phone but the battery drainage and heating is not normal.
My only photo editor
by Twagn on 2020/10/09 09:14
For a $5.00 month subscription it’s dope. Don’t use the sharing function but the tutorials and endless adjustments that can be made plus raw shooting on iPhone....don’t bother with any other photo app.
app isn’t working for me :(
by rvwr0101 on 2020/10/08 14:32
i love this app , but everytime i try to sign in it says something went wrong
Can’t use the app that I just downloaded......
by Sbchel on 2020/10/08 14:13
After so many recommendations and reading the great reviews I am highly disappointed because I can’t even use the app. After using my gmail account to set up the account it pulls up a black screen saying that something went wrong and freezes the app. The only way I can exit the screen is to clear my apps, but still pulls up once I have to start over by opening the app again. I have turned the phone on and off hoping that might help to no avail.
Great app, but why only two lenses?
by MacGyverSurveyor on 2020/10/08 11:30
This app is great, but there’s no support for the ultra-wide angle lens for iPhones with three cameras. It’s been out for almost a year, so what gives?
Existing LR6 user why did I change

Need fix

Pictures won’t save to camera roll since latest update. Very frustrating.
Don’t get why
by Stephon Anderson on 2020/10/06 22:50
Why do you have to pay 10 dollars a month then find out you got a crap load of steps just to apply a filter. Should let you know beforehand

Beware! All your photos and presets will disappear!
by photoserased! on 2020/10/01 03:45
All my photos and presets are gone from this app. They’re nowhere to be found. Don’t trust this app!
Deleted Presets and Customer Service
by TumbleJade121699 on 2020/09/30 03:26
I deleted and reinstalled the app (because it wouldn’t let me upload any recent photos to edit) and logged back in to my account and my presets were gone. I called customer service and every time someone would answer and not say anything (one time they even hung up on me). I’m disappointed and mad.
cant even open app
by Amazingly.anna on 2020/09/29 02:37
i’ve had lightroom for months but since this new update i am not able to even open the app. it crashes as soon as it starts to open. HELP
Cloud: good; search functions: weak.
by GadgetManRH on 2020/09/28 14:26
Facial recognition capability is good. Search function are rudimentary. One cannot find pictures of “Alice AND Bob”. One can find pictures of Alice or pictures of Bob, but not the intersection. Edit functions are also minimal. The cloud centric focus is very nice. Initial upload of my 1tb data is painful. If you’ve kept your photos organized in a hierarchical folder system, that’s all lost during import, so it seems you’re stuck with creating folders and albums in LR and importing one directory folder at a time. Very time consuming. It’s an ‘ok’ system but I hope Adobe sees the light and tuned up the search capability.
update is horrible
by nickolasreveiw on 2020/09/25 07:21
was a great app until the update. the camera roll selection feature is awful and it was much better when you could access all photos in camera roll without selecting specific ones
Used to be able to edit raw files for free!
by Nappamon on 2020/09/24 07:36
Title basically says it all. So I edited my raw photos on here and all was cool just small stuff and now you have to pay for it? Monthly? $4.99 a month? Almost $60 a year? Sorry but no thanks that’s really dumb you should let people pay for it once and then be done why all the subscriptions! And I know you guys have had this subscription for a while now but to just be like oh you can’t edit raw files without upgrading is distasteful. Anyways these multi-million dollar companies don’t care.
Need to add graphic watermarks
by kevib47 on 2020/09/23 19:19
This app is awesome, but I don’t want to export from my phone without a graphic watermark. The text watermark is no help to me.
Presets Deleted!!!
by TLango! on 2020/09/23 18:48
Every time there is a new update my preset I have saved are deleted!!! I can’t get into the cloud to delete things when it says that it’s full. But I can purchase a different plan??? A different plan for what!? To have pictures in it that I can’t see!? Makes no sense!!!
Slow sync speeds
by patriot photo on 2020/09/23 17:11
I’ve had 2000 or so images that have taken over 2 weeks to sync and it’s not anything on my end
great until this update
by Pissed6392638229 on 2020/09/23 17:04
this update has made it impossible to save photos. not sure what the deal is, but paying for a subscription and not being able to save the photos is super irritating. just sits there for countless minutes in the “downloading smart preview”
Can’t “copy to Instagram” anymore
by Jjyoungsdvmufcv on 2020/09/23 14:18
I am not able to select the second Instagram sharing option, only the 1st one. Which doesn’t allow me to crop my photo like I need too.
by ess la ness on 2020/09/22 05:44
I renewed my purchase for light room and it charged my bank account however I’m unable to use the additional tools that comes with full version of light room. Any suggestions on what to do? Or I can I get my money back?
Image save to camera roll is pixelated mess.
by Dkydkdhfxhc on 2020/09/22 02:06
The overdub compressed mess without a way to turn off cimressikn ks crap. And that this review is entered as black text in dark gray background in the lr app amplifies the pile of crap this app is.
It was 5-star...until I subscribed
by Kathryn in DC on 2020/09/21 19:27
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.
Total rip off
by ibanezhunter420 on 2020/09/21 05:59
I pay for premium yet I don’t get it! And adobe support will not help!
I love this app

Thank you for making it so easy
Great app
by Starpower99 on 2020/09/19 21:26
Most apps like these make you have any to use all the tools, and bother you with ands and such. This app is right to the point, gives access to all tools and I already love it.

Fix it again
by sounaly on 2020/09/19 06:21
New update use with IOS 14 can’t import pictures like before . There are so many step . I don’t like it . Please fix it at
by Moonietunes on 2020/09/18 19:54
This app lets you make beautiful adjustments to your photos. The problem? It will only export low resolution versions of the photos. Obviously Adobe does not want anyone to substitute this app for purchase of the full price Lightroom desktop subscription. So you will have photos that are okay for Instagram or Twitter but will otherwise look like a snapshot made with a cheap 1990s disposable camera.
Photos failed to import
by lumzy227 on 2020/09/17 08:04
I just recently got this app and loved it instantly, the first day I used I edited about 20 photos, by the second day I tried to import photos and all photos failed to import except the ones I saved from Lightroom. I need a response on how to proceed ASAP

by Likeaghost on 2020/09/14 22:58
For the love of god, can you please update the app so that it automatically opens to the picture i have selected in Photos???? It is so frustrating to be taken to the all photos in lightroom, and then i have to hunt for the photo i selected.
by jesshsub on 2020/09/14 04:21
Is this app not free anymore? I can’t do any single thing without it saying I need to pay for premium. I can’t adjust color or light or any of the features that have always been free
Don’t purchase,
by LoAnderson2322 on 2020/09/13 22:11
I paid for this app and it won’t let me copy the pre-sets. I have been trying to contact someone to either get my money back or to get it fixed and no one will respond.

Great for pictures but…
by Wargamingggghh on 2020/09/10 02:29
Great app for pictures, the best. One thing it truly fails at is saving pictures. It sometimes doesn’t save photos that you have taken. A true bummer, why have a good camera and not save images a complete waste of time
Worst customer service ever, Good luck
by J.ologie on 2020/09/08 18:59
I pay for Lightroom and 1TB every month as part of my subscriptions. Adobe keeps telling me don’t even though I keep showing them proof from Apple of my monthly payments. Hope y’all don’t get scammed too. Neither party are willing to help me.

What happened to my photos and presets?
by on 2020/08/31 05:10
Updated the app recently and all my photos and presets are GONE! I'm super sad about this and don't understand what happened! What is going on?
I lost all of my photos and custom presets.
by user27585926374 on 2020/08/31 00:13
I have be a loyal adobe user and after the last update I went into my app to find that all of my photos and custom presets were gone. As a photographer, that is what I take pride in and I am extremely distraught about this.
What the hell
by Casirdms on 2020/08/29 22:44
I’m so upset. They did an update and all of my photos and PRESETS (that I’ve purchased from others) are gone forever :(

Deleted Photos
by thelittletoiletgermupurass on 2020/08/26 06:28
You should’ve gave us a warning before making an update that would make us lose all our photos!!! The grief I had after losing my best photos on here was horrible. Next time warn your customers about an update that MIGHT DELETE PHOTOS!!! 😡
by Luk.E. on 2020/08/26 01:51
There is an issue regarding downloading pictures. The issue is that the download does not seem to include the noise reduction. In the app it has the noise reduction but when I download it to my photos app, the download does not have the noise reduction. Can someone please help me? Any recommendations?
Lost all my photos and presets — AGAIN
by Jordanmwa on 2020/08/25 15:07
This isn’t the first time it happened to me, but now it looks like even more people are dealing with this mess than when it happened to me about a year ago. Seriously, so disappointed. Going to be looking for a new app to edit my photos in - hopefully a more reliable one.
please fix sign in problem
by Taheer mahmud. on 2020/08/25 15:01

I love it when it works
by Melinda Richard on 2020/08/25 07:27
It’s great 50% of the time. The rest, it’s crashing or freezing. As soon as you open it up, select a picture, it freezes. Then you can either leave it for a good 6-7 hours, or get rid of it and reload it again. This has been going on for quite awhile. Very frustrating.
Battery drain issue!!!
by DomChhun on 2020/08/24 11:50
It's a very good app👍 but it drains so much battery while editing png. & jpg. on iPhone SE 2020. I hope it will be fixed in next update🙏
Cool app
by pthakur19 on 2020/08/22 19:25
My go to tool to fix almost any photo immediately for instagram. To edit RAW images you need to purchase the app.
Gone in the blink of an eye
by Wertabc on 2020/08/22 04:59
In a matter of moments I lost two years worth of photos and presets. All adobe has to say is “sorry” as they are unrecoverable. I Love the app but am very disappointed in the mismanagement of the update and of the aftermath which has caused so much grief.

“May lost your photos”
by dimasphotographer on 2020/08/21 20:05
Man... Adobe has to understand that people live by using their software... iPad owner for photo editing here. You cannot treat your software as a kinky filter for to your pictures. I bought 1TB iPad to have all offline. Grow up or give up. This kind of issue of “maybe losing your pictures forever” is too amateur to charge 19.99 per month. Sincerely someone that lost pictures. I had 32000 pictures online now I have 30500... Can you at least tell me what I lost so I can restore from my real cloud? Thank you
Didn’t lose access to photos, they were deleted.
by macPhixer on 2020/08/21 18:19
Big difference between losing access to photos and having Adobe wipe my cloud data. The recent update implies my “lost access” might be restored, it is not, the data is gone. Adobe still doesn’t support working off a network server, guess we can see why. They can’t even get it working solid when they have full control.
DON’T have automatic updates on

Really? They lost all of our data?
by Mdisc on 2020/08/21 05:18
I can’t believe this. What a disaster. I’m upset that I lost images. I feel bad for whoever’s head will role in this latest update, but HOW DO YOU NOT CATCH SOMETHING LIKE THIS IN TESTING?! Really?!!
my presets disappeared
by -999999999999999 on 2020/08/21 02:22
I spent $30 on presets only to have all of them disappear. What a waste of time. I’m so upset
by Crazzeed68 on 2020/08/21 02:08
v.5.4.1 claims to fix a big in which some users lost access to photos...LIES. I didn’t have this problem UNTIL this update. Now I am missing photos and ALL of my user presets have vanished and I can’t get them back despite being a Creative Cloud user. Contacted support, it’s been over 48 hours and no response. Is this happening to anyone else?
All things desapear
by saadsantos on 2020/08/21 00:15
I love this app, but it’s the second time all my photos and presets desapear. I did nothing again, it’s so frustrating.
by Oscarao on 2020/08/20 22:23
Me cobraron 4 meses de una suscripción que nunca usé ya que la aplicación la use solo por 3 días y la borre, y me doy cuenta hoy 20 de agosto que desde Mayo me están cobrando algo que no uso
What’s happened to my presets & photos !
by ESRAAJMQ on 2020/08/20 21:00
Lost some of my photos & presets , you guys need to fix that ASAP 😡
by Ksun-1 on 2020/08/20 20:52
I have been using this app for a while and have bought presets for it (which were not the cheapest) and once the app updated it wiped all of them and all the pictures from the past year. Because the presets were bought awhile ago I don’t have access to reload them onto the app without repurchasing. Lightroom really needs to fix this issue.
Lightroom IPad subscription
by Pav89c on 2020/08/20 20:05
I called both Apple and adobe and I can not get an answer. My question is, i currently have Lightroom subscription for 9.99, but on the Apple store I see Lightroom iPad for 4.99, what is the difference?
by Fiercebon14 on 2020/08/20 18:48
Updates are usually meant to make things better Adobe, not worse. Don’t rely on any of their cloud based services. They’ll make sure you regret using them by deleting your current work. You have one job as a cloud based service. Just hold on to my picture While I continue to work.
Automatic Update Erased all Images/Presets
by speterson0411 on 2020/08/20 18:28
Your automatic update erased all images and presets from the past year and a half. There is no fix, just an update for those without automatic updates to not lose their photos and presets. Very disappointed because I use this app daily for photo editing.
New update
by Southern-Made on 2020/08/20 18:08
With the new update or whatever it was.. I lost all of my synched photos and ALL of my presets that I bought. Very annoyed 😭😭

Be very careful storing your pictures in adobe apps. The recent update deleted hundreds of irreplaceable pictures from a once in a lifetime backpacking trip. Since I took them with the Lightroom camera, they are not recoverable, and I am heartbroken. Their customer service told me they cannot fix it, and doesn’t seem to care at all. 😩😢🤯
no longer a vsco girl
by RNS406 on 2020/08/20 16:05
i used to edit solely with vsco. i swore it was my fav editing app. then i found lightroom and it is now my new fav. i lovee the precision and variation of tools,yet it is still easy to use. my fav tool has to be the color mix, where u can pick specific colors in the photo and change the hue/saturation/luminance. playing around with the colors is so fun and truly life changing. 10/10 recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
And then there were none, well, almost none
by Robert Dubya on 2020/08/20 15:31
Recently lost access to all my images except two. And yes, I have the latest version of the app. There is indication that the app is trying to load images but so far no luck. Same problem with iPad OS Lr app except all images are gone. Glad I don’t have to depend on Adobe apps/software to earn a living.
Lost all presets and photos
by MALPAIGEZIEGLER on 2020/08/20 13:50
A “bug” erased my entire library and presets. The engineers could not or would not recover it for me. Moving my editing to another platform that I can trust.
Don’t need my DSLR 90% of the time
by CA-JR on 2017/11/07 19:22
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.
A 2nd camera roll, but better...
by HelloitsDerek on 2018/09/12 08:51
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!!
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!!
Greatest program yet
by Pokepokebtcheekecheeke on 2018/06/19 22:45
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 ?
by Anasatya on 2019/09/12 02:27
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. 🙏🏼
Almost Perfect with One Annoying Feature
by ssb540 on 2020/07/29 01:04
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. Thanks!
Love this App, but have had challenges...
by KBYogi007 on 2020/04/13 15:29
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.
Love it!
by Bobskie boo on 2019/07/13 05:46
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!
LOVE but has some issues
by Joann Nguyen on 2018/03/17 23:37
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.
Awesome App, has a (literal) huge problem.
by TrueReviewer02 on 2020/06/26 20:29
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.
Lost presets were found!
by Brooke Haywood on 2020/06/30 16:44
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!
Good editing, but workflow feels hobbled
by RobAbroad on 2019/10/21 00:34
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.
Tremendous app; could integrate better with iCloud Photo Library
by tracemeek on 2020/03/13 15:10
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!)
Best editing app but..
by aaauia1 on 2020/01/22 03:15
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.
Love it
by Krizzle711.........711 on 2020/05/07 10:49
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 ◡̈
high hopes
by LeonardoRoberto on 2018/10/29 01:30
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.
The best photo app I’ve used except for...
by guswillcreate on 2018/07/26 03:00
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.
Great app but needs a few tweaks
by gofhotog on 2017/09/16 21:03
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.
I love it
by Pajones058 on 2018/04/07 00:09
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.
Love using it, but could use more
by hepkat23 on 2020/05/02 14:14
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: Color calibration. 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....
Great, but a major hiccup
by DJ Squirrel on 2019/12/01 16:58
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.
I love it

I’m so disappointed in the Adobe company
by Crazypaw on 2018/02/08 23:53
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.
Great except for one issue
by :(!:(!35&25&&/4 on 2019/05/12 01:17
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.”
Makes culling images / sending sneak peeks easy
by Kevasus on 2018/04/14 00:39
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.
Awesome app! Pros and cons.
by SMAARTIST on 2018/09/28 13:43
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.
Loved it at first
by Corinne___ on 2018/06/03 23:38
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
The BEST photography app ever. Period.
by chase_gagnon on 2019/06/25 01:13
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.
Nice Editing App, but ....
by Ironmonkeyface on 2018/06/16 01:18
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.
Could be terrific, but...
by Luke Lucas on 2020/02/13 20:26
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.
For the photo editing obsessed!
by Gab'nMcTEXAS on 2017/11/07 15:59
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!
Cloud: good; search functions: weak.
by GadgetManRH on 2020/09/28 14:26
Facial recognition capability is good. Search function are rudimentary. One cannot find pictures of “Alice AND Bob”. One can find pictures of Alice or pictures of Bob, but not the intersection. Edit functions are also minimal. The cloud centric focus is very nice. Initial upload of my 1tb data is painful. If you’ve kept your photos organized in a hierarchical folder system, that’s all lost during import, so it seems you’re stuck with creating folders and albums in LR and importing one directory folder at a time. Very time consuming. It’s an ‘ok’ system but I hope Adobe sees the light and tuned up the search capability.
So many right things but...
by Dana Photo Girl on 2017/12/02 00:09
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. Pros - 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 Cons - 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.

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.

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.
Great tool! Especially after iPhone X upgrade
by joe_ba1 on 2017/11/30 13:28
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!
Pocket Lightroom
by Constant User of Spotify on 2018/07/08 19:10
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
not user friendly,time consuming to use
by lnh726 on 2019/01/03 20:27
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!
Please add “download all originals” option
by penguins66 on 2018/09/25 10:49
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!
To developers
by The Great Dustino on 2017/09/01 23:28
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.

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!
Imported pictures I didn’t want
by Bnghvcgbvfgjkoojxdjkhgyh on 2018/07/31 02:10
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 )
It was 5-star...until I subscribed
by Kathryn in DC on 2020/09/21 19:27
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.
Change is hard but this is great
by mabradfo on 2017/11/12 18:57
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.

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!! -Wes Candela
Good start
by DrBarryS on 2018/01/27 14:25
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.
Home bar distracting on iPhone X and later
by AOANLA on 2018/10/08 18:45
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.
Great functionality wrapped in an okay UI
by Plaid Knight on 2018/02/07 18:07
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).
Great App
by bexcontreras on 2018/05/04 00:00
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!!🙏🏼🙏🏼
