Surpass expectations

The basic version has a lot of great features!!
Can’t import images from camera roll on iPhone 10
by ThirdEyeFX1 on 2019/10/22 11:21
Stopped working after update. Pls fix.
Keep it up!
by Capt Bill B on 2019/10/22 01:02
Love it
Please allow us to change the editing background to white
by Mmmmmm3474 on 2019/10/22 00:53
This app is awesome with one flaw...white balance is hard to perfect when you are working with a black background. The desktop version allows for changing the background to white, please allow this feature on the app and I’ll be sold.
Best iPhone Photo Editing, Not a Perfect App
by CeeDubH on 2019/10/21 18:11
Lightroom Mobile is excellent. Shooting in RAW and editing on mobile to share immediately, then being able to sync directly to Lightroom Classic and continue editing, uploading, and managing my photo library is awesome. That being said, there are bugs that have been around for years that still nag at my workflow. No flash support when shooting RAW, the app doesn’t hold onto it’s settings after restarts, edits don’t always sync properly, I’m not a fan of subscription pricing, it’s rude that they take away some of the coolest features of the app if you don’t have a subscription, I refuse to store my photos in the cloud and would require selective sync as my library is well over 1 TB, the interface has always appeared like it’s from 2001 (that is of course an opinion), no support yet for the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max even after they’ve been out for almost two weeks now… All little things that are probably low priority but can really bug after a while. A better response time and attention to detail from Adobe support would really make this the unquestionable best app for iOS. Until then, it’s still pretty great. *Update* Still no update for iPhone 11 support. For a company the size of Adobe with their class of developers this is unacceptable. I’ve not even been using Lightroom since moving to my new iPhone.
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.
Great photo editing app!!
by Mmm4yr4 on 2019/10/20 14:40
I love this app! It makes my pictures look so good!
It’s okay
by uniBunni on 2019/10/20 05:18
This app is okay, it does everything it says it can and it worked well the first few times I used it, now the only problem is that every time I press a button (say lighting or color) it just loads and loads and nothing will work, I try closing the app and reopening, turning off my phone and turning it back on, nothing works and I can’t edit anything.
Top software
by Kaiwah8899 on 2019/10/18 05:46
This is the best photo editing software for everyone.
Best Editing App hands down!
by Julian Tzarax on 2019/10/18 04:58
It’s the best. Trust.
Love this !!
by MamaH*2 on 2019/10/17 22:36
Honestly this is the best app ever. I love being able to read the tutorials and trying to advance my photography editing!!!!
Wonderful
by LoveArtBeautyPhotography.com on 2019/10/17 17:02
As a professional photographer, I use Adobe Lightroom in conjunction with PS for my business. I was skeptical at first about a mobile app for my cell phone pictures, however, I am very pleasantly surprised! This app is excellent!
Not working with 11 pro
by TD Mike G on 2019/10/17 04:54
I’ve always been huge LR mobile fan — recommending it to friends and anyone who’ll lend me an ear. However, the latest iteration is not playing well with my new iPhone 11 pro. RAW images are super grainy and the camera doesn’t work unless I’m in HDR mode. Please fix this great app, Adobe!
Greedy Company
by Chlslkns on 2019/10/16 14:35
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.
Amazing
by Rockinscorpions on 2019/10/16 02:31
Absolutely love Lightroom both on mobile and desktop!! Has been the only photo editing program I’ve used since I can remember. One thing I would like on both mobile and desktop is a way to set custom/graphic watermarks and not just basic text. Other than that no complaints at all!!
Please add a left-handed mode!
by drewhumphrey on 2019/10/15 22:22
Very happy to see support for the Files app in Lightroom. It’s really unlocked the capability of my iPad Pro. The only other thing I’d really like to see is a left handed mode!
Great
by Kim Vislocky on 2019/10/15 01:50
It’s a great app but the problem is I just got an iPhone and I had this app on my Android with some presets that I bought but they won’t transfer over?!
Always requiring money
by RFK2005 on 2019/10/13 14:49
When they say free it means basically nothing has changed with your photos unless you pay. Every other setting requires money, no thanks. DELETED
iPhone 11 Pro photos overexposed
by steve-holt on 2019/10/12 14:15
Just got an iPhone 11 Pro and discovered it's not supported by the Lightroom app yet. The depth map feature doesn't show up under the technology previews, I can't switch to the new ultra wide lens, and worst of all it's way overexposing raw photos in the editor, even ones shot in other apps!
Great
by malcolmboartfield on 2019/10/11 22:24

Please update to take DNG with ultra-wide camera on iPhones 11 Pro
by Gamera! on 2019/10/11 19:01

“Export Original” is Lie!!!
by G.Ghatchava on 2019/10/11 12:17
when you capture raw(DNG) photo and want to export it to edit on desktop you can, but Lightroom edits all captured images by default (Sharpening, Noise Reduction, Lens Correction, Color Editing) and Export Edited versions, not Originals...so if you capture raw and want true original, it is currently impossible to do so. You can can edit images and create presets as long as u want, but you can not get unedited RAW from Lightroom...basically “Export Original” lie.
Used to love it
by AUF.4 on 2019/10/10 17:05
Loved it till I logged out and now it won’t let me log in anymore, have tried everything from reinstalling app to trying to make a new account, nothing, just shows no internet connection!
Frustrated by update
by Yogi in a Bag on 2019/10/10 04:04
New update crashes and freezes. Also, changed how you select photos to edit with no info about how to do it. Before, you could easily tap on a photo and wallah! You could edit. A new layer or two has been added making the the process cumbersome. If I wanted the complications and multiple steps before being able to edit I’d open up my full version of LR. However, on my phone, I want to open and tap to edit. I don’t want to have to jump through hoops. Adobe is lucky they don’t have any real competition. Their software is clumsy and UX is is behind.
Instagram does more than this
by Kfjudndifnfjfff on 2019/10/10 00:43
When I use Instagram to edit photos, it has more options and stuff than this app, and all the editing on Instagram app is free.
Love it!
by Momof2lilmonkeys on 2019/10/09 15:31
Recently went to Disneyland and used my iphone to take pictures! I don’t like using the flash and the presets made a big difference and made all our pictures bright without having to use the flash.
Awful
by Pawni Pawn on 2019/10/09 10:38
Filters are sooo fake and don’t work on real pictures.
Glitchy
by lala0137 on 2019/10/09 00:53
New updated version doesn’t work well with new IOS. It’s glitchy and when I’m trying to download new presets on my phone it’s give me error “skipping duplicate” no matter what I tried. I never had these presets before on my phone, these are new files to my phone, but yet receiving this error over and over again.
SUBSCRIPTION FOR WHAT?
by Acxthe1 on 2019/10/08 20:10
I loved it and would use it quite often until one day they told me I had to pay for some of the previously FREE features. If you want to make users pay come up with new features and charge for that. Don’t just make them pay for what they’re already used to. Why must I subscribe for what I used to have for free?
This is an awesome app ever, i use it everyday and it works perfectly

I’m not an expert using it, but what I know About it it really helps me editing and getting better my photos.
Left handed for iPad pro
by BLW Photo on 2019/10/05 01:10
Please make the toolbar that it can go over to the left side for the left-handed people of the photography world. I love the app, but it hard to use if you're left-handed. If there a way I miss in the setting, please let me know. Then I change the one star to five once this is updated... Waiting for reply... 😔☹️

I’m a huge fan, my default photo platform
by emopaul on 2019/10/03 15:03
It’s taken years to figure out mu archival photo workflow and Lightroom is finally it. I love synching with the desktop app, as well as phone and iPad. Just wished it loaded faster and had better caching and proxy options. That said it’s still really well designed and a pleasure to use.
Not compatible for iPad mini 5:(

I haven’t been able to edit pictures for days now! All the filters are disabled and the presets too. I am uninstalling and reinstalling to see if it will work.
Now I have to pay a monthly fee after using it for years??
by hisweet22222 on 2019/10/01 12:09
Why now do I have to pay a monthly fee? I’ve loved this app and using it for years and now you want to charge a monthly fee of $5! I should be grandfathered in! Deleted app.
THE BEST!!
by Quinn’s 13" MacBook on 2019/09/30 19:03
This has been the best photo editing experience I have ever had. Most of the controls are quite intuitive and simple to use!

Not super impresss
by tayolacurtis on 2019/09/30 04:33
Filters are descent. I feel like you get the same effects just using the Instagram filters. Definitely NOT worth the $10 auto pay every month. I am canceling mine.
Lots of bugs and grainy photos on iPhone 11 pro
by Iamdrell on 2019/09/30 02:03
Since I’ve downloaded the updated version of this app that I love so much I’ve experienced bad imagining and tons of grainy photos plus I can only take photos in HDR which is weird and very annoying. I love this app and recommended it to everyone I know who loves taking photos. Please fix on iPhone 11 pro. Thank you

by ostensions on 2019/09/29 15:11
I love the editing tools but where this app really shines is the built in camera app. Recently upgraded to the 11 pro max. Will we be getting ultra wide angle camera support in the built in camera app?? Thanks

Hmm
by reviewer1119 on 2019/09/28 01:27
Honestly I’m frustrated. I used to have this app but had to uninstall it and just tried reinstalling it. It won’t let me log into my account. And so I tried making a new account but it pauses up right after I finish putting in all the information it needs to make a new account. So I am unable to use this app at all. It’s a shame because it’s the one app I know has certain features that I haven’t found elsewhere.

No longer free
by rogersechelsea on 2019/09/24 23:03
I was originally a huge fan of my Lightroom app! I’ve been using it for years! It was ORIGINALLY FREE. But, now Adobe charges... just like every other app 🙄. I’ve purchased tons of presets that are now useless, unless I want to pay for their monthly subscription, on tops of the $50 I’m already paying a month for my desktops apps by adobe. Why is it no longer free?
Amazing App
by Ljbnyc on 2019/09/24 13:30

by Systemshel on 2019/09/23 22:51
I love this app but it has been crashing on me since the new update and it takes forever to share. It takes about 5 minutes to download and render before sharing. And that’s if it doesn’t crash! Please fix so I can totally love this amazing app!

Great all around app, however, I believe it’s time for another bug fix update. As of recently, I’ve been experiencing unbelievable problems with uploading/downloading & sharing my files. Taking forever. It’s like the buffering never ends.
Update for iPhone 11 Pro?
by Danielorozco on 2019/09/23 04:19
Can we get support for iPhone 11 Pro? I’m a long-time user of both the desktop and mobile versions of Lightroom. I prefer to shoot raw/DNG if I happen to be using my phone and it bums me out that there isn’t support for my phone yet.

Why is this not available for iPad yet?
by Tilly+Bo on 2019/09/20 22:08
I have been having to use LRCC for my photography business and the exports are awful. There’s definitely a huge loss in color and quality, which is a huge problem when working with portraits. I purchased an iPad Pro thinking that LR would soon roll out a fully functional version for tablets soon. I’m so disappointed in the export issue with the mobile version and I desperately need something that will allow me to complete my editing process on one device without a ton of quality and storage issues.
Crashes constantly

This app crashes all the time. Unfortunately there is no better alternative.
Slower than it used to be
by arthur.n on 2019/09/20 03:16
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.

This app is such a scam
by Autumn🌟 on 2019/09/18 23:43
I signed up for a free trial of the premium version where I quickly realized the premium options were poorly executed and were options others apps gave you for free. I tried to cancel yet there was no cancel option anywhere in the app. I went to the FAQs which led me to their customer support. I contacted them and asked that they cancel my subscription however they refused to do so and said I had to contact apple billing. It was a total scam.

This app has been amazing up until here lately. I recently renewed my membership upgrade to be able to use ’selective’ and ’healing’ mode. However, every time I try to erase or add ANY select this app glitches and doesn't allow me until AT LEAST the tenth time of clicking and clicking and dragging over and over. The app itself, great. The app with the update after purchasing it, awful!

App crashed and all my photos are gone!
by Halfway-crook on 2019/09/14 04:23
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!
Stop the dim and you’re there.
by AmalieMaren on 2019/09/12 06:35
I love this app but a couple minutes into editing my phone is so dim I can barely see my pics. Literally can’t even use it until I exit the app and my phone brightens back up again. So. So. Annoying. Ruining it for me for sure.
PLEASE HELP
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. 🙏🏼
Great app!

Contacted the developer and they said to contact Apple because they couldn’t help me. Contacted Apple and they said the developer is able to restore my subscription. Apple refunded me. Very unprofessional of Adobe.

Just too slow
by hfm2 on 2019/09/06 12:18
I use to love this app to run my photography business and as a person who pays for a creative cloud account. I am disappointed By the lack of speed and answers to help correct the issue. Over 10 hrs past and the sync of 1200 photos not done. My clients are waiting and I can’t download my edits in a timely manner. This something that will force me to look elsewhere
The BOMB

My Lightroom Experience
by followthestorm on 2019/09/05 22:06
First I’d like to thank Peter McKinnon, it’s because of his use of Lightroom and his review on YouTube that has caused me to purchased this app. It’s worth it I have a lot to learn and I’m looking forward to my future in photography.
Preset for Subscribers only??
by MykaelaJ on 2019/09/03 03:01
I really hope this is a joke but I created a ton of presets on this app and now when I try and download a preset it shows a pop-up basically asking me to pay $4.99 for premium features. If you have to pay to make presets now that is so dumb and a shame because now all of my presets are deleted so I wouldn’t pay anyways because I’d have to make my presets all over again. Garbage
Beyond common editing app.
by Alannymichelletaverasro on 2019/09/02 23:40
But... why is there an option to add videos if you can’t absolutely a thing to them? Just need an answer. Thank you.
Hands down best mobile app!
by Wesley Brilhante on 2019/02/18 10:29
I’m a hardcore adobe fan but the software that has been working the best for me out of all the creative cloud platform it’s no doubt the Lightroom mobile, i have spent tons of money on expensive softwares, apps and different hardware stuff trying to get my pictures to the next level but I can’t stop using Lightroom mobile,I love using my iPhone and most of the time I’m flying my drone and like to edit my pictures on the spot right after I’m finished so I don’t know anything else as good or as close to Lightroom mobile, not to mention that once you have done some of the work on the go once you hit the computer it’s synced with your Lightroom desktop version so you can either keep working on the desktop or laydown and keep working on the mobile version on your phone, and the best part for me is that is very convenient to just grab the phone out of the pocket and take a picture instead of using a huge DSLR for a simple picture that sometimes you might not have time to setup the tripod and everything before the subject has moved etc , I like to have a camera for every scenario, GoPro for under water, drone for aerial photography, DSLR for my professional photography and my iPhone photography for quick snaps that I don’t feel like carrying a huge bag full of accessories and for every one of those cameras Lightroom mobile app works well!
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!!
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 ?
PLEASE HELP
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. 🙏🏼
The future
by maxblack113 on 2019/05/24 02:53
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Best iPhone Photo Editing, Not a Perfect App
by CeeDubH on 2019/10/21 18:11
Lightroom Mobile is excellent. Shooting in RAW and editing on mobile to share immediately, then being able to sync directly to Lightroom Classic and continue editing, uploading, and managing my photo library is awesome. That being said, there are bugs that have been around for years that still nag at my workflow. No flash support when shooting RAW, the app doesn’t hold onto it’s settings after restarts, edits don’t always sync properly, I’m not a fan of subscription pricing, it’s rude that they take away some of the coolest features of the app if you don’t have a subscription, I refuse to store my photos in the cloud and would require selective sync as my library is well over 1 TB, the interface has always appeared like it’s from 2001 (that is of course an opinion), no support yet for the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max even after they’ve been out for almost two weeks now… All little things that are probably low priority but can really bug after a while. A better response time and attention to detail from Adobe support would really make this the unquestionable best app for iOS. Until then, it’s still pretty great. *Update* Still no update for iPhone 11 support. For a company the size of Adobe with their class of developers this is unacceptable. I’ve not even been using Lightroom since moving to my new iPhone.
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.
I love it

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.
Great- especially with premium
by udiwu on 2019/05/09 01:14
I have premium and it is definitely worth it even though it gets expensive to pay every month. I use this to edit pictures and it makes my photos look so much better. First suggestion- I want to be able to post a album of up to ten pictures to instagram..... in one post- it would be nice if you could add a feature where you could do that, if there already is please let me know how Second suggestion is if you could add a fade option.... this was a while ago but I remember when I used to have to edit with instagram there was a fade option and I used it a lot because it made the pictures look so much calmer
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.
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!
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!
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.
Almost
by flallnatural on 2018/03/30 14:24
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.
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.
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.
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 )
Excellent!
by rockstarkate on 2018/02/02 15:19
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!

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.
A great app for beginners that don’t have Photoshop
by samjray105 on 2018/09/05 12:28
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!
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).
Truly the future of photography
by masnun on 2019/03/14 02:52
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.
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!!🙏🏼🙏🏼
A failure of Adobe
by Pittsburghswo on 2018/04/29 13:44
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...
What is happening?!
by Ana1984777 on 2018/12/13 21:21
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...
The app keeps dimming my screen
by Katy8663 on 2019/09/02 20:36
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.
Finally, a photo editing app with custom presets!
by DoctorTaco123 on 2018/08/08 06:48
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! 👍
My New go to Editing App
by ghosttrooper127 on 2018/09/12 14:29
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.
Lost Pictures
by cookiecookis on 2018/08/12 00:01
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...
Great app but no portrait features
by alexandersawyer on 2017/10/14 01:45
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!
LR User for Years
by tree on 2017/10/30 15:36
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!
