  • A 2nd camera roll, but better... Sep 12, 2018

    By HelloitsDerek
    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!!

    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!!

    Great app for smartphone photography. Effects work well, the free version is amazing if you're just looking for basic tone/colour adjustments. Clone/heal tool, filters, selective adjustments, etc. are missing from the free version but if I really need that I just open the image in the desktop version of LR. Wouldn't pay for the mobile app however.

  • Greatest program yet Jun 19, 2018

    By Pokepokebtcheekecheeke
    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 ?

    Not really good for beginners. Yes there's tutorials but still not looking too easy. And need more good looking presets & if you can add an option to backup atleast 10 presets(user presets) free. Otherwise it helps to edit like a pro in a complete different look. Excellent.

    Generally solid app but it keeps using mobile data while I'm connected to wifi despite having its sync over data setting disabled AND my phone's use mobile data in background setting disabled. This isn't acceptable and has cost me enough for me to pay for a several months worth of my sub in the last 2 months. Looking into it briefly I found reports of this dating back 4 years with no solutions. Once addressed I will increase my rating. Device: Pixel 4 Version: Android 11 Network: Google Fi

    It's ridiculous to be paying monthly for a premium account and not being able to use the app!!! I have used lightroom for so long, I have a big library and so many presets of my own as well as bought presets.I don't want to cancel my subscription and abandon the app but there is no point to keep paying when I can't even open the app. It crashes before it even opens and asks me to send a feedback (sent dozens).Even before it started crashing, all the thumbnails in the gallery were black. Pls fix!

    THEY TAKE A $30 FEE JUST TO CANCEL A SUBSCRIPTION. When I subscribed to Adobe a while back and soon forgot about it. When I realized I was still being charged for the subscription I went to cancel it. They do not make this easy. I went to the app and clicked on my account all it said was "subscribed" but no link to unsubscribe, I then went to support looked up unsubscribe, nothing popped up. I had to look it up online to find the link to unsubscribe. They then charged me a $30 fee just to unsub.

    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.

    Come on Adobe.. CR3 has been out for like 2 and a half YEARS and this app won't recognize and import them?!.. Oh, but if I load them onto my pc and then sync them to the cloud, THEN suddenly the app CAN recognize them. Like WTH?! There's no excuse for this. "Professional" photo editor huh?

    Lightroom added wide color gamut support for android! Whoo! Good job Adobe. I'll bump my review from 2 stars now to 5 stars. With Lightroom for Android I don't need a photo editing computer anymore, saving me $1,600 in hardware costs. All I need is a phone with a well calibrated display from the factory and I can backup and edit and export all my photos while saving lots of money and gaining massive portability.

  • Love it! Jul 13, 2019

    By Bobskie boo
    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!

  • Lost presets were found! Jun 30, 2020

    By Brooke Haywood
    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!

  • Almost Perfect with One Annoying Feature Jul 29, 2020

    By ssb540
    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 but has some issues Mar 17, 2018

    By Joann Nguyen
    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.

    It's fantastic. Im completely new to photography and with the editing capabilities of this app, I've convinced people I'm a professional. But there is a downside. Recently i went on the app and found that none of my previous photos were appearing. I added a photo and it worked fine, but all the older ones never loaded. It says failed to load development preview. I tried restarting my phone but that didn't work Some help would be appreciated.

  • high hopes Oct 29, 2018

    By LeonardoRoberto
    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.

  • PLEASE HELP Sep 12, 2019

    By Anasatya
    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. 🙏🏼

    Frustrating, this app keeps crashing on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A, I've tried a re-install and moved to SD card but no joy. I've even reset the tablet and re-installed, but still it keeps crashing and its normally when I'm near the end of an edit, it doesn't save and I have to start all over again.

  • Awesome App, has a (literal) huge problem. Jun 26, 2020

    By TrueReviewer02
    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.

    Lightroom navigation bar does not work all the time . Whenever I import a picture to edit and try to tap some option , the touch does not work. I clear app twice or thrice and then it works. Sometimes it works fine but most of the time I have to try multiple times. Can this be checked?

  • Love this App, but have had challenges... Apr 13, 2020

    By KBYogi007
    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.

    Works fine for editing but the import option is flawed beyond belief. It doesn't automatically import the photos your folders are already split into. So it imports 3000+ photos into one big clump and I am expected to re-sort all of them? What planet are the developers on? Waste of a lot of hard work developing a quality editing app by such an outdated and obtuse filing import feature. And it creates copies so it was raking up 43GB os space instead of just using the files that were already there.

  • In app camera needs serious improvement Jan 24, 2021

    By ryan c thompson
    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.

    Editor had plenty of possibilities and touch ups to photo with fine results, but...it is totally anoying to edit any photo because of unlogical controls. I click more while selecting menus,than editing photo. Import photo to edit it and then export it to view it between all photos in main directory and then removing from app, because it is duplicated in phone memory...what a nonsense.
