It worked great for a while but now I’m getting a message “import failed” every time I try to add a picture from the camera roll. Please let me know how to fix this.

Compressing
by Loveit23 on 2021/10/07 20:48
App compressing photos when edit and exported to iOS . It’s taking 42mp and I’m seeing 3mp in the end in iOS photo album. All setting were dialed In on iPhone 12. Update: I fixed it on the export setting . I didn’t realize that the toggle switch was actually another menu.
Nice

What?
by amber0000009 on 2021/10/02 16:40
They raised the price from 5 dollars a month to 50. So scammy and looking for another app to use instead
Widget is broken
by climber20 on 2021/10/01 22:41
No issues with Lightroom other than the widget no longer works in iOS 15. From the home page or Lock Screen, I swipe right and usually tapping on the widget icon would bring up the Lightroom camera ready to shoot. Now all it does is open the app, but the camera is inaccessible. I have to close the program and restart it to actually shoot a photo. Tried contacting Adobe, but their website is so user unfriendly that I gave up. Update: the widget seems to be working properly after 2 days of the above. Didn’t change anything so not sure what was going on. Thanks to Adobe for contacting me.
Not awesome anymore
by Batt Black on 2021/10/01 21:39
This app was awesome to use for the basic filter edits. Now since it’s last update you have to subscribe to use them. Jus like any other app developer. It’s free to use then after an update then BAM, pay pay pay.
Terrible customer service
by Puneetmomi on 2021/09/30 23:06
I have been going through an issue with my subscription and I’m not getting any help. I have been billed but my profile says Trial expired and my Apple subscription says I have been billed September 26th. I have contacted both Apple customer service and Adobe customer service. They are both blaming each other for the issue and ping ponging me. I used to love this app but now I have to re think about getting some other editing software. Bad bad experience.
Adobe is garbage
by liesOfdouchnesd on 2021/09/28 23:01
Adobe is complete garbage now and the subscription to their programs is a scam. I’ve never had so many issues with a program until I had to buy Adobe and use the UN-creative cloud.
Removed features!
by vectorbug on 2021/09/25 04:44
I left a crummy review in frustration recently and wanted to correct it. Lightroom for iOS has made me a better photographer, and Adobe’s Creative Suite has been a major toolbox for my career. Being able to make such adjustments on my phone is amazing.
Sync issues
by duhvdrggc on 2021/09/20 18:03
The mobile app will not sync to my desktop version. I Literally have mess around with it in order to do what I pay for it to do, and there’s no manual sync option. I just want to be able to edit my photos when I’m not at home and cannot.
What???
by jdhdgdc on 2021/09/19 15:59
I honestly used to love this but now with the new update I don’t even know how to edit a photo
Scammers
by youreadillhole on 2021/09/14 15:19
Huge cancellation fee if you don’t wind up using the apps anymore. A month to month option should be available because it is more affordable and easier to cancel if money situations get tight. This company has no sympathy for your medical or financial situation, they will just take from you
Export Quality has greatly diminished
by n8shac on 2021/09/12 17:17
I don’t know what happened but I use a Medium Format camera, upload through Desktop for sync and export to my mobile phone. Have been doing it that way for as long as Mobile has been out. Artifacts. 2001 level artifacts. All over the image, under all Export options. Multiple attempts, the detail is gone.
Overheating
by ednomx1 on 2021/09/12 11:53
This app is amazing for editing on the go. I even edit images from my camera on the Mobil app sometimes, the accuracy in colors and ability to use a True Tone curve is amazing. However, my phone overheats every time I use the app, which I guess makes sense since it uses a lot of ram memory, but I wish that could be fixed.
LOVE IT
by brendonnnnnnnnnnn on 2021/09/08 03:53
I’m currently on the student plan and have been experimenting with the app for one of my college photography classes. It’s absolutely incredible how easy this app makes everything. I swear editing some of my photos was like magic. Can’t believe how much the quantity of my images has improved
Be Careful
by Jh700<3 on 2021/09/06 14:22
I did the free trial for this and tried to unsubscribe but couldn’t find any info in the app and this morning saw it charged my account $50! Be careful if you download this app.
It keeps outo downloading!

What happened to the original

Where are the original presets? Now it’s either something you don’t want or you pay again to “upgrade”?!
iPad app tells me to download iPad app?
by 827462792947267193947293 on 2021/08/29 13:45

Money hungry

Was an awesome app until you wanted money for simple filters .
Eh
by bfrnx on 2021/08/28 03:43
I used to love this app! It’s how I edit every photo, but every since I’ve updated it, it uploads EVERY photo I take into light room and when I tried to switch that off it wouldn’t save my edited photos to the smart Lightroom album on my phone. So I either A. Let every photo I take get uploaded to the app B. Have to scroll through a ton of photos to find my edited one instead of it just saving to the “Lightroom” album for easy access. So frustrating they changed this! I’ve googled it and can’t find a solution.
Unreliable
by wood_1234 on 2021/08/26 03:56
I’ve bought multiple Preset packages. &amp; multiple times they have been deleted from the app. Anytime the app updates the have deleted or occasionally when the app has crashed. To go back and redownload 40+ presets every time or have to bug to the person I bought them from to resend them to me is becoming not really worth it.
Progress made Adobe. But STILL getting perpetually pending photos…
by Icantevenhavemyname on 2021/08/24 01:51
I really don’t know what to do anymore. After spending a month giving up remote access to my laptop so Adobe could(and I’m grateful) find some phantom sync errors that refused to go away and fixing them with customer scripts, the same issue on mobile still persists. The only way to make it disappear is to delete the app and start all over. Again. And again. I’m so sick of this. I’ve upgraded to an iPhone 11, am on iOS 14.7.1, had no sync errors this morning, and have only uploaded files through the Lightroom CC app on my Windows 10 laptop(which shows nothing pending). The browser site also shows no sync errors, but away my phone app spins. Again. I only want one thing from a user perspective, Adobe. For the love of God let the darn mobile app show WHICH PHOTO is stuck. I’m sure that’s harder than I’m making it, but this is absurd after over 8 months of this. I just want my stuff to work like it did before y’all “updated” everything. Please.
Bait and switch
by Nnnet1 on 2021/08/22 22:00
I would expect better from your company. Hi download in your “free download” Lightroom, wasted my time trying to get it to work, only to find that it doesn’t work without other apps for Fees, creative cloud and Lightroom. I would much rather you tell me upfront what the charges are rather than. Surprising me once I have invested my time to learn it. I suppose I should feel lucky that I only wasted a day. If your retort is that the cost is buried in fine print, it even better illustrates my point. You should plaster the prices all over the app up front. THANKS FOR NOTHING.
Its been crashing lately
by Exura 6 on 2021/08/21 04:22
Its random when it crashes, but its every other photo or so when i have to restart otherwise i love the app

NOT FREE ANYMORE!!
by sava9997 on 2021/08/15 19:55
I’ve had this app for years and loved to use it. But today I went to go edit a couple pictures and if I touch anything the app prompts me to start paying for its monthly services. I can’t even access my presets that I’ve made! Guess I’ll have to find another editing software
Can’t cancel
by Abbbbbyyyyyyyyy11112222 on 2021/08/15 19:52
It’s like they make it purposely difficult to cancel your subscription from your phone. For this reason I would not recommend signing up.

Lame discrimination against other editing apps
by paula_dubz on 2021/08/13 23:05
I just found that they won’t let you upload a pick that was recently edited on another app. It was saved to my camera roll, so it’s clear that they want everything edited here. Make color pop easier and you’d get better ratings.
My photos don't show
by ddildlaidalida on 2021/08/10 15:51
I don&#39;t know if it&#39;s because I&#39;m not familiar with the app but I literally cannot get the photos I want to edit, I look through the entire gallery and it only gives me video options or to pick completely unrelated photos, it&#39;s extremely frustrating. How do I fix this? It doesn&#39;t show me photos I actually want to upload and edit 🥲
Need more tools and
by hernandezrluis on 2021/08/08 20:53
Really good so far still the best edition. Program but sometimes it need some more features. We pay but wish they Release new stuff
Library and presets completely gone
by lizziesuzie on 2021/08/07 13:58
I have been using this app for years. Today I opened it to edit a photo and it prompted me to login (which it never does). Once I logged in my entire library and all of my user presets were gone. It was as if I had created an entirely new account. I have no idea how to get these presets back.

Buggy and crashes
by CreativeCatnip on 2021/08/06 16:45
When I am doing quick edits in a photo I have to race through through it because the app crashes within 4 minutes. I’m using the app because the LR desktop version crashes too, and this is the second time in the year I’ve had to uninstall and re install. Adobe is truly disappointing. For the the amount of money the charge to RENT software there shouldn’t be so many bugs and glitches.
It won’t let me log in?
by kansbekwkenne on 2021/08/06 07:18
I’ve tried logging in but the screen freezes and few minutes later it says there’s an issue. I can even use the app or edit
Not user friendly
by Life long mfp user on 2021/08/05 20:00
There’s no way to open a screenshot to edit, even if it’s from your own video. The selecting a photo from your own gallery vs Lightroom gallery is extremely confusing, syncs with your trash can. It’s doesn’t make any sense. It defaults to the oldest photo even if you change the order photos are shown. This update needs improvement
unsubscribe me!
by Poppa nuggets on 2021/08/05 15:19
I was to unsubscribe but the app won’t let me please stop charging me for a app I DONT WANT
All the good tools aren’t free. 👎🏻
by Photography27-;) on 2021/08/04 23:43
If you’re looking for an editing app that is free and totally spectacular, this isn’t the one for you. I have Google Snapseed as my main editing app, and I’ve had it for about a year, and it got the job done, but I couldn’t wait to get Lightroom. I got it and signed up and all that, but realized that everything that snapseed didn’t have (erasing parts, angle adjustment and most presets) were things you had to pay for. So I had very limited options. And over time, I stopped using it. Unless you want to pay $60, it really isn’t anything more than Snapseed or other editing apps. Sorry, I don’t recommend.
Not free
by CaGrounds on 2021/08/02 23:33
Even though I opted out of the premium version to see if I liked it enough to pay for it I still was not able to used even the “free” version without opting to pay 49.99 per year or 4.99 per month.

For some reason, after editing &amp; exporting the photo to my camera roll, the quality seems to be messed up. I try to sharpen the photo but the quality does not look as good as the unedited version. I love using Lightroom to edit but this has become a problem for me.

by CariAnn22 on 2021/07/28 17:01
Reviewing again because I was told the new location of the presets was a mistake, but apparently it’s being kept that way. I absolutely hate it and it’s so inconvenient.
Terrible update. App now not worth it at all.
by notyetded on 2021/07/23 23:29
I’m reviewing a second time. My first review has a response from Adobe saying that the issues I stated were fixed. I redownloaded the app to check. NOPE. Don’t lie to the customer. You did not fix the old presents and you are unable to adjust them at all. It’s either on or off. Terrible update and still a terrible app. Un-installing for a SECOND time. And Adobe, don’t waste your time responding to the review. I will not be re-downloading a 3rd time.

Healing Function Doesn’t Work
by shelby541 on 2021/07/21 23:25
I have a love/ hate relationship with LR. I love how easy it is to end it things but sometimes it is not intuitive/ user friendly. My biggest thing that annoys me about the app is the “healing” feature doesn’t not let you zoom in far enough to “heal” a blemish, or doesn’t let you make the circle smaller for this and therefor it simply doesn’t work. I really hope this issue gets fixed.
Takes up HALF the storage on my phone
by Jobejojo on 2021/07/19 06:02
Why do you have to store the images inside the app? The photos app already stores my images. There’s no reason on earth why I’d want Lightroom to store my 26MP raw files AGAIN. To reiterate. My phone, inexplicably, contains TWO VERSIONS of my 26MP Raw files….. why can’t you guys just like, pull the photos from the photos app, and then put them back when your done. Like every single other photo editing app ever. Idk man, idk

The One Photo Editor that feels Professional
by rehmandhkbd on 2021/07/15 15:51
There are few fantastic photo editing apps and each of them are unique in their own way. Among all of the photo editing apps that are free on Apps Store, Lightroom allows the most extensive and accurate color and light control for all types of images. Must try if you are a photo enthusiast!
Mixed review

Update made it worse
by xxxxxxxxdxx on 2021/07/14 14:59
The update is clunky and cumbersome to use. I like to edit my photos. I use presets sparingly as I find I like my eye better someone else’s. So extra presets are useless to me. But now from features like the Geometry feature which was free before is now locked behind a premium subscription!!!!! Figured you could make some money from all those people who really like the app!

So Awful
by B Stadiem on 2021/07/12 03:53
Downloading this onto your phone would only be useful if you were interested in constantly having a commercial of what designers are capable of, in the most general sense. The app gives you nothing to work with. As a designer, there is nothing intuitive to the app and trying to guess amongst the clutter of whatever the designers had in mind is a nightmare. It’s just terrible.

Used to be better
by alcheming on 2021/07/02 21:07
This has been my favorite app for editing photos and I’ve been using it for years. However over the last 8+ months (give or take) it absolutely wrecks havoc on my phone and uses so much battery life, I can’t use it for any extended period of time without having issues (battery drain + overheat, or app crashes completely). Not sure if it’s because I have an older model phone (8 plus) or if just uses THAT much of the phones resources, it’s unfortunate because I can only get through a few photos before needing to force close.

Confusing versions

Don’t like the update
by Sklaudianus on 2021/06/27 13:12
The app is absolutely fantastic, but the latest update made my job more difficult. My custom created Preset takes more steps to reach now than before. The ideal solution would be to get one button access to custom presets or to apply the presets in batch. Thank you for considering!

I love Lightroom. I use it on both my laptop and phone. But the new update has issues. It lost a lot of my presets, and sometimes it will crash when I try to use my presets. I have to uninstall and reinstall it to get it to work again. Before this update I would have given it 5 stars.

From best app to worst app overnight
by Suddenly the worst app ever on 2021/06/17 16:15
Wow. This is the first review I have ever written anywhere, on any site, and it’s warranted because the most recent LR update is beyond awful. It shows that the app creators have literally no idea how their app is being used. The ability to share the photo directly from the photo into Lightroom is gone. Why would you remove that feature? Now, you have to manually import the photo which is cumbersome and requires several extra clicks. Worse, all of my personal presets have been moved into a buried folder that requires several clicks to get to, and the presets themselves look totally different, as if they are not compatible with the new version of the app. Overall, I cannot think of a worse redesign for what was truly a great app. I would love to hear from other reviewers about any other photo editing apps out there that can serve the same purpose, as I can’t imagine continuing to use this app with these new changes. The creators of this app should strongly consider keeping the bug fixes and reverting to the old version of the app while figuring out a way to fix this awful mess they have made.
Updates not good.
by Jewel :p on 2021/06/17 01:24
There wasn&#39;t really a reason for you guys to move the presets around? Not really sure what the point of it was. Maybe put it back? Let&#39;s not fix what&#39;s not broke .

How do I create a preset?
Presets are gone
by Girl2mrw on 2021/06/16 04:18
My presets can still be found under “user presets” but look nothing like they should. They are completely different and look awful, I don’t understand. I am so upset.
Great app
by Adam myrick on 2021/06/15 20:14
Great app!
stop updating
by wowowoowowowowi on 2021/06/15 19:07
i love this app… but the user interface keeps changing and it’s becoming difficult to get used to a practically different app every 2 months. first the most recent imports switched from the top of the library to the bottom… and now the preset button is in a different spot and it doesn’t open to the recently used preset folder. the grain is also different and entirely too subtle, unlike before. i miss the old lightroom :’(
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&#39;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&#39;s designed by a team of talented people and not just one guy in his basement. Don&#39;t hesitate, get it today, you love it... I guarantee it!!
Please help🙏🏻
by agegirl on 2020/06/29 17:48
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!!
Make believe science
by Excellent714 on 2020/12/04 01:55
Just like Photoshop on my computers Adobe has its own peculiar ways of doing the most simple tasks. After using Photoshop for 20 years you’d expect to have little difficulty with the Lightroom App. When you use most programs - even an OS - there is no so-called learning curve. But with Adobe you are bound to be surprised when you realize how difficult they make it to do the very simplest of things. Adobe makes things difficult to show you how fancy or scientific it is. I just opened Lightroom and am finding there is no way to get pictures out of it once Adobe captures them. I can delete an album of Adobe’s choice but not one stinking picture of my choice. It doesn’t even have to be deleted just removed from Lightroom. There are so many apps that do the same things easier and better it’s hard to justify Lightroom. On my computers I’ve always had Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro. Since Photoshop costs ten times more you’d expect it to be the best choice. Not unless you prefer doing everything the hard way. Paint Shop Pro is not perfect but I can do everything Photoshop does in a fraction of the time. I’m not even sure why Lightroom exists. And when it comes to iPhone there are so very many apps that are easier and give better results. The Bottom Line is avoid anything Adobe like the plague.
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. 🙏🏼
Epic fail
by Aliona.Sil on 2021/02/04 13:49
I was very excited for this app and been successfully using it for a few months now. My husband and I went to Aruba for our honeymoon and this app helped make our pictures absolutely magical and beautiful and all was well until today when I decided to upgrade to premium account to have access to more cool features. Once I upgraded I jumped back in one of the photos to edit it as the app crashed all of a sudden. When I got back into the app I found all of my albums and pictures that I spent hours and hours working on were gone. I thought it must have been a mistake because there were no warnings or signs that something like that would happen. So I went online in hopes to find an answer and to my disappointment I found an Adobe Lightroom forum where other people posted the same issue. Apparently lots of people had the same issue and said that customer support was no help at al. This is absolutely unacceptable and terrible user experience. I will pursue to escalate this to make sure other people don’t fall into the same trap, but for now beware that if you upgrade and decide to spend your hard earned money on this app it will silently and irreversibly erase all your old photos and presets.
Progress made Adobe. But STILL getting perpetually pending photos…
by Icantevenhavemyname on 2021/08/24 01:51
I really don’t know what to do anymore. After spending a month giving up remote access to my laptop so Adobe could(and I’m grateful) find some phantom sync errors that refused to go away and fixing them with customer scripts, the same issue on mobile still persists. The only way to make it disappear is to delete the app and start all over. Again. And again. I’m so sick of this. I’ve upgraded to an iPhone 11, am on iOS 14.7.1, had no sync errors this morning, and have only uploaded files through the Lightroom CC app on my Windows 10 laptop(which shows nothing pending). The browser site also shows no sync errors, but away my phone app spins. Again. I only want one thing from a user perspective, Adobe. For the love of God let the darn mobile app show WHICH PHOTO is stuck. I’m sure that’s harder than I’m making it, but this is absurd after over 8 months of this. I just want my stuff to work like it did before y’all “updated” everything. Please.
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.

In app camera needs serious improvement
by ryan c thompson on 2021/01/24 01:32
I love the app for the editing purposes, no issues there, but the camera in app is extremely frustrating. I have an iPhone X and I like that LR offers a camera for shooting raw and is my go to camera. However, the exposure is way off most of the time. It does not have issues when shooting JPG, but when shooting raw it totally overexposes, And I’m only using it for the raw capabilities. And I mean by a lot, blowing out photos entirely. It looks fine on the screen during the preview but the result is unusable. I frequently have to take the exposure compensation down to around -2.7 to get a useable result. And there is no way for me to know based on the preview if it will be correct or not. It also shows a snapshot of the photo I took immediately after the shutter with the expected result of what I think I took, only to find the file is completely overexposed in the library and often with some wild color issues even after I’ve used a custom white balance and grey card. Please fix.
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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t do much photo editing (I prefer to get it right when I open the shutter in the first place), so the smaller &#34;smart previews&#34; aren&#39;t what I need. I use Lightroom to organize my pictures, occasionally I&#39;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 &#34;lower res images&#34; (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! &amp; 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” &amp; if you press on that, there are several options &amp; “User Presets” was right there &amp; I was able to press on that &amp; 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 &amp; 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.
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.
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 &amp; show them. This app has a lot of tools that can help create amazing pictures ◡̈
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....
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, 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.
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.
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.”
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.

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.
Love it ,but one problem lately !
by Erionziu on 2021/04/23 23:26
I love Lightroom . It’s been about a month or so that when I open the app , most of the time the pictures keep going back to the oldest ones . I have about 4000 pictures there so in order to go to the newest ones it takes time to scroll . Before when I would open the app it would always start with the latest pictures . I’ve tried to change many settings but with not positive result . Sometimes the pictures would start in the middle when I open the app. I’ve been using Lightroom for at least 5-6 years but only recently I’ve had this issue . Please fix it. It’s very frustrating and time consuming. Thanks
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...

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 &amp; 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.
Constantly crashes
by angelkiler7208 on 2020/07/09 18:51
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.
Almost

Downloading maximum available size for sharing literally takes forever. Says &#34;This might take a while&#34; even after 15 minutes of it sitting there. My internet is fine. The full resolution just never downloads. Used to work. Don&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s editing capabilities are amazing and it&#39;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&#39;t care if it was 10 or 20 bucks I think it&#39;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&#39;t need the creative cloud or just can&#39;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 )
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.
Widget is broken
by climber20 on 2021/10/01 22:41
No issues with Lightroom other than the widget no longer works in iOS 15. From the home page or Lock Screen, I swipe right and usually tapping on the widget icon would bring up the Lightroom camera ready to shoot. Now all it does is open the app, but the camera is inaccessible. I have to close the program and restart it to actually shoot a photo. Tried contacting Adobe, but their website is so user unfriendly that I gave up. Update: the widget seems to be working properly after 2 days of the above. Didn’t change anything so not sure what was going on. Thanks to Adobe for contacting me.
I love this but cannot find older imported photos
by alexandra4JC on 2021/06/11 23:00
This app is great for editing except for the fact that when you import a photo it won’t automatically show up at the top. So when I find an old phot I want to edit and import it I would have to scroll through thousands of pictures to find it since it automatically imports by the date it was taken. I end up opting out of editing and sharing or even printing older photos I really love because once I get them into the Lightroom app I cannot find them. I wish they would make an option to import by date importing into Lightroom and not date taken.
