    Lighting is a key factor when it comes to taking high-quality photos. When taking photographs at night, it's necessary to find good lighting for your photography. Whether you intend to take 2 or 100 photos, Adobe Lightroom won't disappoint you.

    We all know that there are times when the difference between setting the exposure at 38 instead of 37 can make or break your social media post. No other photo editing app allows you to edit in as much detail.

    Hello, the app was alright yesterday but today, after I got a notice that the trial has expired, I updated the app and then bought a 1 month subscription for a start but I'm not seeing the various editing options that usually appear at the bottom of the Edit interface ... I wish I could send a screenshot but I hope you understand what I mean... I'm not getting the various editing tabs to work on my photos, please help me out here. It's like they're hidden behind my photo I'm working on.
  • Don’t need my DSLR 90% of the time Nov 7, 2017

    By CA-JR
    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.

    Hello. A suggestion for the developers and the team. I hope the presets will be back automatically whenever we log in again using our account. There are times that I accidentally deleted the app. Then when I installed it again and logged in, the presets have been removed. Sadly I have to add everything again. I hope you can improve this. Thank you! Nevertheless, lightroom has been my fave editing app so far! Kudos. 👏

    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!!

    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. 🙏🏼

    This is a excellent news for photo editor because this app have many preset and lots of fun to edit the photos. Also out of many photo edit apps this is the most trusted and best app. This is come with a trial and paid version but trial version dont give many efeects and preset but sufficient. You will purchase it on month pack and also on year pack after such ammount. The users who might start the photos to edit they can use it comfortably. Some features are not add on. Its only on paid. Ok.

    Not so much of a review. The in-app camera doesn't seem to support the multiple lenses (telephoto and wide view) on the Sony Xperia 5II. Google searches don't seem to resolve whether it should or not. If not supported, its a shame, because I like everything else about the app.
  • 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!

    Hi. First, I want to say that I love this aap and work with it on daily basis (I am a photographer). But, lately something happened to the app, and now I can't upload photos to it, receiving a message "photos failed to upload". I have a premium account with 1 Tera extra storage.

    From what I've learned online, LR for iphone has more functionality which really annoys me. I can't figure out a way to do long exposures whereas for iphone it is extremely easy. That's just one example I'm sure. Also custom presets changed without telling us which was frustrating. As an editing app it's pretty good, but I also have PS mobile as I've had an annual PS/LR subscription for years so tend to just use that. Don't always feel I get what I pay for. At least desktop is good.

    Does not save your photos. Out of 20 photos I took, only 2 were saved. Also does not manual focus on any mode other than "professional" which makes them extremely blurry and low res compared to the exact same shots in default android camera app. I have tried all possible settings to increase the resolution to no avail. I need a manual focus that has a wide range. This one barely has any distance range, so for macro photos it's useless.
  • Make believe science Dec 4, 2020

    By Excellent714
    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.

    I used to love this app till last year but now I keep getting new bugs everyday. The latest would be that I am unable to add my favourite photos that I want to edit. I tried all options available but only an "import finished" message is display without the photos actually being added. What's the use of this app if I can't edit the photos I want but can add random photos to it.
  • Epic fail Feb 4, 2021

    By Aliona.Sil
    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.

    Really don't like the latest updates! Really hard to navigate and it seems the filters have lost some quality to them? Everything is getting behind a paywall and I can't even use my current Mac/PC subscription with it! What a joke! Used to be a good app until they started fiddling with it!!
  • 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.

    This program forces you to download photos on a cloud, and when it does that it dumps copies on your computer you can't delete without deleting them in the program. Huge waste of memory. Not only that but this program lags and takes FOREVER to export photos even with a great computer. For a program made for professional photo editing it is absolutely rittled with problems. Super disappointing when you pay for this service.
  • From best app to worst app overnight Jun 17, 2021

    By Suddenly the worst app ever
    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.

  • 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!

    This is the 2nd time my photos have stopped showing up in Lightroom. They're all blacked out unless I click on them one by one. Also I keep getting an error about about photos failing to import when trying to add new photos. Not sure how it was fixed the first time, but I wish Adobe would give solutions to fix this.
  • Best editing app but.. Jan 22, 2020

    By aaauia1
    Ok this app is hands-down the best editing app in my opinion but what I don’t like is the fact they changed the option to have all your edited photos synced across all devices for free but you have to get the subscription. I personally think that this is unfair because these are my photos and plus why should I have to pay just to have my photos that I took for free. So Lightroom, I ask that you please let all users have that option of being able to sync their photos on all devices again. Also, if possible, could you create an option where the photos that are edited have an Instagram accustomed setting because it’s really annoying having Instagram change the quality of the picture horribly because the pixels are too high.

  • LOVE 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.

    I made an embarrassing mistake and I'd like to apologize. I have 2 Adobe accounts and logged into the one where I'm not paying for anything and I made my last review based on that. I had assumed that Adobe added an extra subscription and I feel bad for being angry about it before. This app is great and I love that my photos can sync across devices. I just wish it were easier to move the sliders, like exposure, shadows, highlights, etc. But overall I've loved this app.

    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 Oct 21, 2019

    By RobAbroad
    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 Mar 13, 2020

    By tracemeek
    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!)

    I'll definitely say in terms of editors I have used this is one that I love. The only issue I have with the Android version of this is the lack of the ability to add image files via the system file directory. This is a major problem when trying to to use a Chromebook or Android tablet as a photo editing device. It will be nice for the mobile version to have plugins. I would love to have the ability to export original + settings since I can plug a usb c SSD into my phone if needed.
  • The best photo app I’ve used except for... Jul 26, 2018

    By guswillcreate
    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.

    Hello, the app was alright yesterday but today, after I got a notice that the trial has expired, I updated the app and then bought a 1 month subscription for a start but I'm not seeing the various editing options that usually appear at the bottom of the Edit interface ... I wish I could send a screenshot but I hope you understand what I mean... I'm not getting the various editing tabs to work on my photos, please help me out here. It's like they're hidden behind my photo I'm working on.
  • Please help🙏🏻 Jun 29, 2020

    By agegirl
    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!!
  • 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. 🙏🏼

    Not so much of a review. The in-app camera doesn't seem to support the multiple lenses (telephoto and wide view) on the Sony Xperia 5II. Google searches don't seem to resolve whether it should or not. If not supported, its a shame, because I like everything else about the app.

But, lately something happened to the app, and now I can't upload photos to it, receiving a message "photos failed to upload". I have a premium account with 1 Tera extra storage. I am devastated 🥺 Please help
  • 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.

    I can't use the in app camera, it just doesn't work. Overall the editing experience is really good. I have been uaing the app to edit pictures for 3 years now but I'm really annoyed with the fact that I am not able to take pictures with the app's camera. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note8. Please do something about it.

    I used to love this app, it was my go-to for editing. But recently I've experienced some issues regarding exporting my photos in large quantities. When I try to export large numbers of photos at a time (like for albums), most of them do not export. Even if I try to export them one-by-one, they don't always export. I would love to continue to use this app if only they fixed this issue. If not, I'll do my editing elsewhere. Please figure this out.

    From what I've learned online, LR for iphone has more functionality which really annoys me. I can't figure out a way to do long exposures whereas for iphone it is extremely easy. That's just one example I'm sure. Also custom presets changed without telling us which was frustrating. As an editing app it's pretty good, but I also have PS mobile as I've had an annual PS/LR subscription for years so tend to just use that. Don't always feel I get what I pay for. At least desktop is good.

    I used to love this app till last year but now I keep getting new bugs everyday. The latest would be that I am unable to add my favourite photos that I want to edit. I tried all options available but only an "import finished" message is display without the photos actually being added. What's the use of this app if I can't edit the photos I want but can add random photos to it.

    Really don't like the latest updates! Really hard to navigate and it seems the filters have lost some quality to them? Everything is getting behind a paywall and I can't even use my current Mac/PC subscription with it! What a joke! Used to be a good app until they started fiddling with it!!
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Have used this app for the past year and LOVED it, however lately there have been so many issues with it. Photos and presets won't load, just get a black screen or they will not transfer. Certain edits will not save. I've really enjoyed the app and paid for all the bells and whistles, but I think it may be time to look for a new mobile editing program.

    Does not save your photos. Out of 20 photos I took, only 2 were saved. Also does not manual focus on any mode other than "professional" which makes them extremely blurry and low res compared to the exact same shots in default android camera app. I have tried all possible settings to increase the resolution to no avail. I need a manual focus that has a wide range. This one barely has any distance range, so for macro photos it's useless.
  • Make believe science Dec 4, 2020

    By Excellent714
    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.
  • Epic fail Feb 4, 2021

    By Aliona.Sil
    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.

    This program forces you to download photos on a cloud, and when it does that it dumps copies on your computer you can't delete without deleting them in the program. Huge waste of memory. Not only that but this program lags and takes FOREVER to export photos even with a great computer. For a program made for professional photo editing it is absolutely rittled with problems. Super disappointing when you pay for this service.
  • From best app to worst app overnight Jun 17, 2021

    By Suddenly the worst app ever
    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.

    I used to ablolutly love this app. It made photo editing a breeze. But now Im running into problems where it is constantly asking me to select storage location or it wont load any of my cloud files. Its happenong across multiple devces. PC, Chromebook and Phone. Its getting really inconvienent having to uninstall and reinstall after eaach and every use.

    1. In 'library' in 'all photos' option no single picture is visible, only grey thumbnails. 2. Unable to save edited pictures, it's taking time and not even processing further. Lightroom team I hope you will find appropriate solution for the above problems, And I also hope to see positive changes in future updates.

    This app is good. But gets 1 star because every time I switch phones I have to re-downloaded and set up my settings. It's absolutely ridiculous that an app in this day and age can't save your data when moving phones. And it's a long process to redo the presets. Very frustrating
