Can't use access creative cloud on my phone
by worstlkjh on 2021/03/02 06:43
It kept showing "your subscription includes premium features, but you don't have the access to the creative cloud" which bothers me a lot. I CAN use creative cloud on my desktop, but when it comes to my phone, nope. All the shared files are gone. Only way to access them is by using a computer which is not convenient at all.

Getting worse for small phones
by Dave in Philly on 2021/02/23 01:54
I’m a long time user for Lightroom. I prefer the linear controls of split toning than wheel control of color grading. The touch interface is not as accurate with the color wheel. The new feature control takes up half of the screen on my se. Not very intuitive. I guess things are getting geared towards larger phones.
Is it just me or is this app horrendously optimised.
by joanna 122 on 2021/02/22 12:00
It’s a great app... apart from a major bug which makes my iPhone 12 Pro Max insanely hot. 10 minutes of using it in a 25^c room sent my phone into a lockdown mode where I had to wait for it to cool down.
20 dollar cancellation fee
by Michaela deladurantey on 2021/02/22 01:55
I decided to keep my free trial going. Unaware that if I canceled I would be charged 20 bucks. So frustrated. If I had known this I would not have continued service after my trial ended
Watch when you upgrade
by JaneDoe845 on 2021/02/21 20:49
Love the app so I switched from free to the subscription. Once I upgraded all my presets were removed and all my pictures so make sure you have everything saved to your camera roll and hopefully you can find your presets again. Other than that love the app but it stinks I have to start over now
UPDATED. Great features, buggy/needs improvements
by ilikemyrealname on 2021/02/19 17:27
UPDATE: I’ve stumbled on a new export bug to add to the previous two. Now some of my exports are upside down. Happens about 1 out of 3-4 exports. I can either export again or flip the picture manually in Photos to correct the issue. Also, the “free more space” issue has happened with as much as 7gb remaining on my device. That’s now a total of 3 glitches around exporting. App will say export is successful but doesn’t actually export the photo App will fail exporting giving off a “free more space” error when there is significant room on the device App exports photo successfully but when doing so, flips the image upside down These issues don’t happen every time but when they do, attempting to export again usually results in a proper export. PREVIOUS: First off, the features offered are spot on. The reason for my review is to point on the bugs and issues that devs need to resolve. Exporting doesn’t always work. Often times the export will say it completed, however the picture was not actually exported. This is NOT because of date stamps or something similar causing the pictures to be out of order and hard to find. Instead, I’ll click export up to 3-4 times before the photo actually shows up in Photos. Sometimes exporting will fail giving off a “free more space” error...but there’s more than 3 gigs on my phone. Similar to the first bug, repeating the export until it does so correctly is the current workaround for this issue. Great app but has issues with basic functionality and needs dev attention.
Bait and switch
by leicaMensch on 2021/02/15 23:40
This used to be very functional and captivated a lot of people, but at every update a new function becomes premium only to a point this is now less functional than alternative free applications.
Excellent BUT...
by Jase_W on 2021/02/15 04:37
Excellent to use. One of the best. Probably the best. However, when shooting a DNG in Pro mode the resulting image will be overexposed. (iPhone 12 Pro) It won’t look overexposed when shooting (live view), nor will it look overexposed in the preview after it’s taken. It’s not until you tap on the pic to edit & you will notice the image is overexposed by almost a full stop or more. It’s a bug that Adobe for some reason hasn’t fixed or addressed.
Bug
by mckwthrb on 2021/02/14 23:17
Has a bug! I can’t click through my photo folders to select the pictures I want. It automatically selects my most recent photo and glitches every time I open something else
Typically love the app but BIG issues recently
by lgnwvr on 2021/02/14 06:18
I have been a long time Lightroom mobile user, and for the past few years it’s been everything I’ve needed in more. But the past couple weeks it has been crashing incessantly almost every time I try to upload a new album and the new set of photos and edit them. I am a professional photographer so running into this issue when I am on a deadline is excruciating, and impossible to work around. When I’m on the go and only have my iPad it is literally the only solution I don’t know what needs to change to get this fixed but it needs to happen immediately
Not optimized for iOS. Causes overheating and screen dimming
by eddyjo1234 on 2021/02/14 05:29
For both iPAD pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, Lightroom will boost the CPU usage and cause some severe heating of your device. As a safety feature on iOS devices, when the device overheats, the screen will be forced to dim to help cool the device. Well when you are editing photos and the screen is dim, the app becomes obsolete since you cannot edit the way you want since the screen is too dim. On average the screen dims about 1 minute into editing and the heating is within seconds. Lightroom is just not cpu efficient on iOS devices. Adobe contacted me and asked for screen shots. I’m not exactly sure how that would provide an example of the issue. They never responded to my reply. Until Adobe fixes this issue, it’s a 1 star for me. I used to really love this app. It was my go to for all my photo editing needs as a photographer. I loved editing on my iPad with my Apple Pencil as well. This app needs to be better optimized for mobile devices. Shouldn’t cause it to overheat.
Confusing and crashes
by Chrys with a y on 2021/02/13 03:34
This app is always crashing. Organization of photos on this is a joke.
Add Healing brush size
by Sooskay on 2021/02/12 20:53
I dislike the idea of being unable to adjust the brush size for the “Healing” tool. Would’ve made it worth purchasing the subscription... I just canceled it.
Better apps out there
by MeanGin on 2021/02/11 17:09
Don’t waste all the time with this cumbersome app! And the developers are not good at any support. $35 bucks wasted! and I learned a lesson. Try “PicTapGo” for free or 1.66$ a month for more ease and great results.
Isn’t optimize for iPhone 12 Pro Max
by Blackbery-12 on 2021/02/11 15:58
Lighroom doesn’t recognize the RAW images from the iOS camera. Please resolve this issue.
Unable to use at all

Help!
by shsnsmamshfjdksmzn on 2021/02/09 20:54
Was great at first but now when I try to import a picture it imports my entire camera roll. I tired deleting it so it would refresh but it still happens. I’m very frustrated
!!!!!!!!!PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!
by girlexploresapple on 2021/02/08 22:46
First I got the free version, then a few days later I decided to upgrade. Then all of the sudden all my photos and presets are gone. I THOUGHT IT’S SUPPOSED TO GET BETTER WHEN I UPGRADE????????
Could be great
by Ct21ny54 on 2021/02/08 16:23
What a horrible, laggy, slow app. It takes tens of minutes to download pictures, not mobile friendly at all and the desktop version crashes CONSTANTLY. I can’t wait till something better comes out, LR & PS can kiss my bum
Lost all presets and photos when I upgraded
by Hsirbuxnsgydhu on 2021/02/05 18:29
I love the functionality of this app. However, I lost all presets and photos when I upgraded to the paid version and am not seeing an easy way to get help.
Catfish App - use something else
by BStyleYo on 2021/02/05 14:50
This app presents itself as a free to use program, only until which point you are in the app about to edit before it tries to make you sign up for a subscription. I have no problem with apps for subscriptions. The catfishing of downloading an app for use and then trying to hook someone in to a monthly subscription ( of five dollars a month for an editing app) only shows how Adobe and their products are getting worse and worse as a company.
Subscription & customer service failure
by ldylcfr on 2021/02/05 10:34
New phone - Adobe subscription will not transfer - “restore purchase” doesn’t work. (Customer service said it’s on the Apple side. This is incorrect.) Adobe customer service has been less than useless - been on the phone with them 4 times. They claim not to know about this issue but it’s in many of the reviews and in their forums.
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.
All presets were deleted upon upgrading to Premium!
by yousucklightroom on 2021/02/03 17:00
I’m so furious with your app right now. Over the last few years, I’ve bought many different Preset packages, likely spending around $200. Today I went to upgrade to Premium so I could edit raw photos, and the app glitched and deleted every single preset. Upon talking to some random person online, they say they’re unrecoverable and I’m just out the money. Thanks a lot Lightroom.
I want you off my phone
by icareoutreach on 2021/02/01 23:50

Still losing photos 3 months after worst photo massacre
by equisNan on 2021/01/26 03:23
It’s not the hundreds of hours editing time you think is being synced (but isn’t) it’s the canned responses and apologies from customer support. Like an endless non-syncing cloud service, support constitutes asking the same 3 questions a dozen times. Then -case closed without a fix. Buyer beware; I’m sure Adobe’s lawyers have you signing away your rights when their cloud service evaporates your work product - however Apple refunded the charges.
Lightroom deleted all my presets on update
by BridgetKynr on 2021/01/24 21:03
I was forced to update lightroom on my mobile and Mac recently. Doing so to this new crap version deleted ALL my presets and I cannot get them back. No matter what I do. Hundreds of presets just gone. Pathetic.
I went to use it on my iOS 12.5.1

Lot of bugs in app , memory !!!
by saeed.molaie on 2021/01/24 12:12
The ios application has just been filled with bugs and software errors and is not usable at all, it occupies a large amount of the phone's memory, and after that, by deleting the photos, the uncles return automatically!
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.
Hot phone bug
by 😫😕😕 on 2021/01/20 22:47
My phone becomes extended hot while using the app to the point that I need to put it down. Besides that it’s a great app but that hot phone bug is ruining Lightroom for me
Lightroom Mobile vs Lightroom for iPad
by Z to the M on 2021/01/20 03:15
Overall Lightroom mobile is great and has made editing for IG super quick and easy. However I am confused: I subscribed to the paid version of Lightroom mobile for iPhone but just got an iPad and ‘Lightroom for iPad’ is a different app. Will I have to pay for the extra features on the iPad app too? Or will I be able to use Lightroom mobile on iPad still?
Videos?
by New to team iPhone on 2021/01/19 02:00
For the love of god enable this app to put preset filters over video clips. The process of creating .cube files and uploading them into premier pro is a nightmare. I essentially pay for pro just to add filters and that’s so stupid when this app has all of my presets and could easily apply them to short clips 😤
Too Picky
by skelekatie on 2021/01/16 23:02
When trying to work with a photo uploaded to my phone from my computer I get “photo failed to import”. I have tried many things to remedy but nothing works. A lot of my photos are stored on my computer and get synced to my phone. I have way too many photos to store directly on my camera roll in my phone or the cloud. So this makes the app kind of useless. I may as well use the computer program.
Scam
by ekalashian on 2021/01/16 14:02
If I could give one star I would. First of all when I saw this on Facebook it didn’t disclose that it would take all of my personal information ,location etc. Never received an email with my code. All of the presents look to be exactly the same. I get more out of a free app then spending $37.
Do not upgrade
by AndyyA on 2021/01/14 06:21
Do not upgrade to the premium, any photos nd presets will be lost with no way to get back with 0 warning . I have been using the app for year and decided hey let me upgrade to the premium and as soon as I did everything was gone everything I have looked up says I can’t get it back and Adobe customer service is a f’n joke!
Glitchy
by Learningspanish912 on 2021/01/11 03:39
I just started using this app and I’m mostly enjoying it however there is no drop-down selection menu when typing keywords. It seems to glitch out and you have to retype full keywords each time.
Your device storage is almost full
by somethinganonymous on 2021/01/08 17:21
It clearly shows that 30GB of available storage. Even your app say that under the local storage menu! But whenever I try to export a photo I keep on having this “Your device storage is almost full. Free up atleast %1” what am I supposed to do? It’s really frustrating
Waste of money.
by SaigeLeMason on 2021/01/08 14:51
Too complicated. Didn’t look as good as other free apps that I have tried. Wasted money.
Love it, but it cooks your iPhone!
by Repentman on 2021/01/05 17:32
I love the mobile app, but every time I use it, my iPhone gets extremely hot. I have the iPhone pro max 512gb (top of the line) and it still cooks like an oven. Same thing happened to my iPhone X, and my wife’s iPhone 12 Pro.
Option for storage
by twisted.images09 on 2021/01/03 21:40
I give this app 0 stars if possible. I don’t want or need the storage but the only option it gives me is the 100gb storage option. That is just a rip off to make more money.

by paolamonterroza on 2021/01/03 04:39
I am not sure what’s happening with LR lately but every time I try to upload a photo it selects a random photo that I DID NOT select myself but then it won’t show up. Please help!! Also, my most recent photos are now displayed at the bottom and my old photos are now at the top?? This is so inconvenient. I don't want to scroll alllll the way down to find my most recent photos. Please fix this 😭
Good for photo editing
by AWasky on 2021/01/01 05:07
This app is great for photo editing and learning. Tools are powerful enough to save most photos or improve them and the ability to quickly compare the original to the edited photo is awesome. The in app camera is good as long as you save as JPG as using DNG makes the photos look very grainy and noisy
Recent bug with importing pictures

Photo disappeared in Lightroom
by pentagramwookie on 2020/12/29 06:20
I tried to send a photo from Photos app that I took with my DSLR for further editing in Lightroom and now it’s completely unable to open in Lightroom. I can’t resend it because it keeps giving me the error ‘Skipped importing duplicate’. The photo should just open IMMEDIATELY not show me pictures from 2017. Why is it showing me old pictures? Why does it give me an error? If there’s a duplicate why doesn’t it open that image instead of showing me a pointless helpless error???
Latest update broke it
by Aerogab on 2020/12/29 05:05
Photos are not syncing from my desktop Lightroom app and the recently added photos are from more than 9 months ago, it’s telling me I haven’t uploaded anything new in 9 months which is a big lie. I’m also not able to upload new photos on mobile, photos are either not uploading at all or getting completely lost, I can’t sort by recent because it’s telling me my recent photos are ones I took before the pandemic. Please help.
Great but...
by Unkown 221177 on 2020/12/27 23:13
This is an amazing program. Adobe never fails my photos have never looked better. But it says for ages 12+ but when I went to make an account it says u must be 13. So I have been using my father’s account, besides that it is a great program highly recommend.
Muh... so so pic editor
by OUSooner4Life on 2020/12/27 22:29
This app is ok. Kinda. This app lacks functionality and does not allow creativity! And it is more geared to selling features that sound like are in the app for free. So if you like tricky advertising and minimal pic editing, then this app is for you. 2 - 3 stars at best.

Nasty bug makes app unusable
by brianxramirez on 2020/12/23 16:41
Since last week I’ve had a bug that has not been resolved with soft resetting my phone, deleting and reinstalling the app, nor clearing cache. The bug happens when I want to add a photo from camera roll, as soon as I hit the library icon, it opens my camera roll, picks a random photo, then I click the return button on the top left side to select the photo I want, but instead it takes me to the imported gallery and added roughly 20 random photos I never intended to import. All this happens without the ability to select the photo I want. The only workaround it to limit photo access to a single selected photo you choose in the Lightroom panel in iOS settings. This bug only happens in my phone, and it stinks because I wanted to use Lightroom with ProRAW, but this bug has made me delete the app, hope this gets resolved and feel free to message me and I will gladly screen record this bug happening, it happens 100% of the time.

Rendering bug Issue
by Whoolifornia on 2020/12/19 23:53
Love the app, but as of now I can’t save my photos and was wondering if anyone else has had this issue or having it. I have freed up space in my phone and bought more storage and nothing works. It just stuck rendering 1 of 1 and not saving my image at all.
iPhone mini warning
by |\/||)J on 2020/12/18 21:51
Of course I love this app! I use it every day. Since I got this new phone, iPhone 12 Mini, Lightroom eats the battery. The phone gets hot in my hand and the battery just drains away, like in a half hour. It still works, and I still love the app, but… (and it doesn’t happen with other apps) I’ve contacted Apple, but you probably know how that went.

Privacy Nightmare
by wraithequestrain on 2020/12/15 03:29
Holy crap! Look at how much data they collect!! Compared with, say Halide, which collects no data, this is just ridiculous. Sure, that’s a camera app but still. Why does Adobe need all that data when Halide is able to make a great camera app, and have updates ready to go on day one like Pro Raw support, while Adobe can’t? Adobe charges their customers good money to access any of the useful features here, and also makes money on selling/renting usage data and analytics?! Man, whatever happened to running an honest business? Stay away from this nightmare.
Photos get lost

Not sure if it’s just me, but every time I add a photo to Lightroom from my photo library and hit “view in Lightroom” it shows a photo was added but I have to sift and search around for it. Previously it would be at the top of my “All Photos” but now it falls somewhere in the middle of my hundreds of photos. Please help! Thanks

Thought you had a fav pic app already?

You thought wrong. I’m totally outdated and this app was a breeze to learn. I literally stopped using every picture editing app because this one has everything you need.
I can’t edit raw format
by Ioathed on 2020/12/11 19:30
What did you do to this app? I can no longer edit my photos in .raw format for free. Now I have to pay to edit it. Two weeks ago I could edit my photos easily. Please put it back for free.
Healing Brush not working
by Adfly6050 on 2020/12/10 23:41
The healing brush won’t allow me to remove or clone something in the photo. It freezes up the app every time I try using it. I end up transferring over to photoshop mobile but I don’t need to when I’m paying for the full version of Lightroom.
Worst app ever.
by ArlenTroncoso on 2020/12/10 16:49
So expensive for an app who doesn’t do nothing different than instagram filters. Too many steps to do something and at the end nothing different. Maybe the owners have to take in consideration this an app for cellphone mobile and not a complete computer. Nobody wants to take more than two steps to use the app. PLUS they want you to buy another app for use the app from the other app 🥲 just RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!
Review
by weenie princess on 2020/12/10 07:13
It’s a pretty good app since I’m trying the free trial but I can’t experiment. There are ones that they don’t allow you to use unless you pay. So how do you find out how good it is? Also is there a way to sign your name on the pictures? I can’t seem to find a way to do that on this app.
Very Helpful and Useful

This app has everything I need for my 7th grade class! I am very happy my teacher suggested this app to me.
Bug in latest version when sending to Instagram (IOS)
by Fuzz445 on 2020/12/08 19:04
I use Lightroom all time. The app is great... at least it was. But recently something seems to have changed with the app. I can no longer share photos to Instagram without being given an error. There also used to be a “copy to Instagram” option within the share menu (this would allow you to share a picture to your Instagram story rather than post it), but the option has disappeared. In order to share any picture to Instagram now, I have to download it to my camera roll and share it from my phone, not from the Lightroom app. Very annoying because obviously this means I can no longer store photos in the cloud that I want to share, I have to put them on my device where it takes up storage space. PLEASE FIX THIS!
Add video editing
by 84&5@583&283&?&;& on 2020/12/08 08:43
Why does Lightroom classic have video editing but the app version doesn’t? it’s such a chore to use Lightroom classic or premiere pro instead of Lightroom because they’re both extremely clunky in comparison. Please add video editing tools.
Easy to use
by Ccamenisch on 2020/12/07 13:29
Easy to use, very effective, totally worth the cost!
This app is garbage!
by NEWYORKNJ01 on 2020/12/06 22:10
You have to buy it in order to use features something you can do with other free apps!
Can’t add photos!!

Upgraded storage; app keeps crashing
by Denisu Luisu on 2020/12/04 08:09
While I’m used to the app crashing from time to time, it’s started to crash almost every few minutes at this point—namely, right after I upgraded my cloud storage to 1TB. It crashes when I’m in Healing mode; it crashes when I force sync it before it crashes and deletes my most recent edits; it crashes when I try to save a picture!! What the flippity flip, Adobe 🙃 The new features are great, but if I can’t use the app...
Make believe science

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.

Skip this
by gfdd fb hh on 2020/11/30 21:47
I don’t need a Nother social media app. I wanted a good photo capture and editing application and this offers very little over what the standard iPhone camera app can do. I recommend halide it’s much more intuitive easier to use and gives you better results.
I lost all of my photos
by YangUMR on 2020/11/30 20:48
I just upgraded to the premium features to try the 1 free week trial to see how the tools worked. The app crashed and now all of my photos are gone... I don’t understand how this happened
Problems sending to IG
by Thunderman1165 on 2020/11/30 14:16
The last couple of updates wiped out my ability to share a photo directly from lightroom to instagram. First, you took out “copy to instagram” which was by far the best way to do this, and now, I can’t share under just share to IG. I have iphone 11 pro max...don’t know if it’s a problem for all versions, but as someone who posts every day, this is a real problem. The app has worked great until recently.
Don’t need my DSLR 90% of the time
by CA-JR on 2017/11/07 19:22
This may be my first product review, but I am very eager to share my experience. Thanks to Lightroom CC, I can shoot beautiful raw photos (in HDR), easily organize them, easily fix/improve them, and automatically upload them to the cloud where they don’t eat up space on my phone. I must say that I feel like about 95% of the time I can tweak photos to look exactly what I am hoping for. A major reason for this is the ability to highlight just a region of the photo and adjust the brightness/color to that region. And it is really nice how how the app also ties fairly seamlessly with other Adobe apps such as the two Photoshop apps. I could go on and on about other features I like and other minor things that just are smart and show Adobe was paying attention to detail. My complaints are few and far between, and I’m sure will get tweaked in future version. For these reasons, I am generally confident 90% of the time just walking around with my iPhone to take pictures rather than my bulky Canon 5D Mark IV. My friends keep asking me what app I am using for taking and editing the pictures. I keep telling them they should get this app.
A 2nd camera roll, but better...
by HelloitsDerek on 2018/09/12 08:51
With 1-terabyte of storage it's practically unlimited; no need to worry about space ever again. The edit tools are similar to iOS photos, but on steroids. Flag photos: accept/reject/no flag plus a five star rating system. Organize your photos with folders and albums. Tag photos with as many keywords as you want. Easily search and display photos by any of these features. I also love that I can use it on my Mac and iPad too. Plus you get Bridge for your Mac which expands your editing feature list even more. If the monthly fee has you down, just pretend your taking one of the dev team members out for a coffee every month. Well worth it, this app is super amazing and works very well! You can tell it's designed by a team of talented people and not just one guy in his basement. Don't hesitate, get it today, you love it... I guarantee it!!
Please help🙏🏻
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!!

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. 🙏🏼
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.
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 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.
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!
Awesome App, has a (literal) huge problem.
by TrueReviewer02 on 2020/06/26 20:29
I think this App is great. Even if you don't have the cash for the Creative Cloud. If you want to just do some photo editing or add metadata and watermarks, this app is on top! Unfortunately, even though the app offers cloud storage with the CC, its still the largest app on my phone. A quick search on the internet tells me I'm not alone. I think a great update for this app would be smaller res photos on the device. Yeah, the app has smaller res pictures already, but I mean Really small res. Let me explain: I don't do much photo editing (I prefer to get it right when I open the shutter in the first place), so the smaller "smart previews" aren't what I need. I use Lightroom to organize my pictures, occasionally I'll break out the editing, but its rare. What I need from Lightroom is the ability to import my photos to the cloud, add metadata, and export them at a smaller resolution with a watermark. I have the Apple Photos app store my pictures in iCloud, and my Photos app has a smaller GB footprint than Lightroom. But Lightroom has megabytes of data stored in its cloud, while Photos has Gigabytes! And Lightroom is still larger on my device! Why is that? If this is a bug, please fix it. If its just a difference in resolution between the Lightroom device copies and the Photos copies, please add a function to save "lower res images" (EVEN LOWER THAN SMART PREVIEWS) to my device.
Lost presets were found!
by Brooke Haywood on 2020/06/30 16:44
Love this app! I’m mainly making this review to try to help some people who think their presets disappeared, because I can’t directly respond to reviews, so I’m making my own in hopes that this will help! I thought that all of my presets that I had made (over 40) were gone! & that I only had the original ones that came whenever you first downloaded the app. But then I figured out that whenever you press “Presets” up above those few in the top left it’ll say something like “Colors” & if you press on that, there are several options & “User Presets” was right there & I was able to press on that & view all of my presets! I really hope this helps people. Also, if I could respond to reviews I would, because I’ve seen people think their presets are gone & they’re not!
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.
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.
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.
Love it
by Krizzle711.........711 on 2020/05/07 10:49
I love using this app. There are so many great features. But when you’re using presets, ones you’ve created or downloaded, you can’t tell what filter is on the photo. I have a lot of presets saved and if I’m editing a bunch of photos I’ll have to go through every single preset to see which is the one that I had originally selected. And it will also take off any other editing I’ve done. So that’s just a little frustrating. And also without going through and editing every minor detail I wish there would be a way to decrease the intensity of a preset. But other than that I’ve enjoyed using the app. Friends will ask what I use to edit and I gladly tell & show them. This app has a lot of tools that can help create amazing pictures ◡̈
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.
Not optimized for iOS. Causes overheating and screen dimming
by eddyjo1234 on 2021/02/14 05:29
For both iPAD pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, Lightroom will boost the CPU usage and cause some severe heating of your device. As a safety feature on iOS devices, when the device overheats, the screen will be forced to dim to help cool the device. Well when you are editing photos and the screen is dim, the app becomes obsolete since you cannot edit the way you want since the screen is too dim. On average the screen dims about 1 minute into editing and the heating is within seconds. Lightroom is just not cpu efficient on iOS devices. Adobe contacted me and asked for screen shots. I’m not exactly sure how that would provide an example of the issue. They never responded to my reply. Until Adobe fixes this issue, it’s a 1 star for me. I used to really love this app. It was my go to for all my photo editing needs as a photographer. I loved editing on my iPad with my Apple Pencil as well. This app needs to be better optimized for mobile devices. Shouldn’t cause it to overheat.
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.
Great, but a major hiccup

Lightroom offers superior color editing, but the major issue is that if you haven’t used the app in some time, it doesn’t use your photo gallery like other apps do (by accessing the gallery to pick)—instead it loads the pictures into its own selection gallery and updates it based on the last time it loads. I edited a photo in October 2019 and here on December 1st 2019 I’ve taken a few hundred more photos, which means the last one I took and want to edit specifically isn’t accessible until the other few 700 ahead of it load first. It’s annoying and relegates me to using the phone’s basic photo editing options instead when I want to get the work done now, not 10 minutes from now when I can actually select the photo I want.
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.
Love using it, but could use more

I like being able to be away from my desktop as much as possible being a creative who avoids that kind of grind. This is why I welcomed the addition of Lightroom and now Photoshop for iPad Pro. One thing missing: Color calibration. I know many other users only do “simple edits” on iPads only to return to the big computer for final touch up, but that seem silly. My wish this whole time that iPads have been out has been to make my workflow more organic feeling like drawing or something. Sure windows tablets may work but I don’t like their stylus feel compared to iPad. Is it that adobe doesn’t want to pay xrite or whoever for licensing the profiles? I wish Apple would do it system wide, but not holding my breath. Some of us still print adobe, so pretty please....
Great 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.”
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.
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
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.
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!
Could be terrific, but...
by Luke Lucas on 2020/02/13 20:26
Attempting to import from a CF card, via USB-C card reader, directly into Lightroom is one of the most frustrating experiences I’ve ever had. Lightroom continually loses connection with the card reader, so even while I’m simply doing a pre-cull (not bothering to import photos with closed eyes, etc.), the import screen will go away and kick me back out to the main Lightroom library view... and then the import screen will come back up. I feel certain this is a Lightroom issue as I can just hop over into the Files app in iPadOS, drag my images into a “For Import” folder, and then import from there. But that’s incredibly inefficient. Three stars for the app being available and when it DOES work after the backdoor import, it’s fantastic. But a flagship feature (direct importing) needs to get fixed somehow.
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Good start
by DrBarryS on 2018/01/27 14:25
Adobe has established a new cloud based infrastructure that appears to be a solid start. Not as elegant as Photos, it offers many more features in terms of organization and asset management. Adobe’s challenge will be to quickly improve, optimize, and add features in the crowded and feature rich photo cloud storage market while charging a premium price. Obviously the best user for this app are those who are already using Lightroom desktop. Unfortunately Adobe has created avoidable confusion in their poorly handled naming of their Lightroom ecosystem: as an example it is nearly impossible to do specific Google searching on a LR product.
Home bar distracting on iPhone X and later
by AOANLA on 2018/10/08 18:45
OK, first off this app is overall great. It's the only "real" photo editing app for mobile devices that I've found, it works really well, and it integrates beautifully with desktop Lightroom. It's regularly updated as well, with useful new features that make it more and more powerful. I've used it for years and I love it. However, on iPhone X and later, the home bar that sits at the bottom of the screen is annoying. These phones have no physical phone button and have a visual reminder instead which looks like a line across the bottom of the screen. Especially when used in landscape orientation, it blocks a significant portion of the display and reduces screen real estate (and therefore the viewing size of the photo I'm editing) significantly. It serves no function and there's no way to disable it on the user end. Many apps will automatically hide the home bar to allow a fullscreen view. I hope that Lightroom Mobile adds that functionality soon, and I'll revise this review when they do.
