  • Love the ease if edit. But missing key function

    By susan in portland
    You are missing key function that would allow me to create slideshow based on storytelling. Instead your function insists on ordering the photos by date. Please add the slideshow from the Classic to CC. Thank you
  • Pros on the go could make better use of iPad for Lightroom with catalogs, batch-editing functions

    By jqualls87
    I’m a photojournalist. I often find myself in situations where editing photos with Lightroom for iPad would make my life a lot easier, but it’s just not practical at the moment. Half the time I’m traveling and don’t have the luxury of going back to the office to edit on tight deadlines, so I have to carry around my massive MacBook Pro everywhere I go (and unpack my life at the nearest coffee shops in my path). Now that iPad OS is out and external hard drives are supported, it would be wonderful to see an update with catalogs, smart previews and batch-editing functions so I can actually use this app and take greater advantage of my iPad Pro’s powerful capabilities and smaller package. Such an update would also allow me to comfortably edit from my car on location, rather than having to go out of the way and find a place to hunker down and edit. I can see this app being a fine editor for photographers who have looser deadlines and more time to make fine adjustments, but the lack of these essential features renders it obsolete to photographers who could most benefit from its promise of mobility.
  • Export a photo at full quality of 100%?

    By goran.christian
    It’s a shame that Lightroom for iPad does not export photos at 100% quality. And there is no option to adjust it in the app. The desktop version has that option, so my question is when will the Lightroom for iPad app also have that option to export a photo at full quality of 100%?
  • Premium Features Broken

    By Kkirks1414
    Subscribed with the intent of using Premium Features - especially Selective Editing - on my iPad Pro. Never could get it to work. Adobe Support was no help. Have cancelled and deleted everything.

    By bmc182
    I have a creative cloud all apps plan yet when I try to use Lightroom on my iPad or iPhone it tells me that my free trial has expired. Tried contacting support they told me that my only options are to restart the app or reinstall the app. Tried both and neither fixed it. They told me that’s all they could do. How is that fair? I pay you for something and when it doesn’t work you tell me that I’m out if luck? How can that be legal?
  • Generally does not work

    By the al fonz
    As a local editor with Apple Pencil support it is kinda awesome. However, the minute you try to upload raw photos to the cloud the problems begin. Photos will be “pending” for days on end, to make matters worse, it hard to tell what was uploaded and what was not and when dealing with thousands o photos you just know that some are getting lost. I have tried to work with customer service for months on this, I’m constantly showing them files which should have uploaded but are somehow missing. Customer service is beyond terrible, which is frustrating because I pay for 2tbs of cloud storage. If you are solely editing photos stored on the iPad the main issues are: (1) iPad will not allow you to import photos from Samsung cellphones thus you can’t bring them into Lightroom without using the untrustable cloud; (2) if you make edits and scroll over to another photo the only undo function is to undo most if not all edits; (3) no panorama stitching; and (4) no HDR stitching. The program has potential, but like the IPad Pro it is frustrating almost every thing you try to do serious photo editing
  • I’ll Never Know!

    By IrishPirQueen
    I’ll never know the full capabilities of Lightroom! In general, I find the entire up-for-grabs Gold Rush perpetrated by subscription services off putting. I was aware when I downloaded the app that this was how Lightroom was managing their software. However unlikely it may be, there existed the possibility that I might really appreciate Lightroom and subscribe. I have many apps but only one is subscription with updates every week (not a photo app), half of what LR is charging. Nevertheless, in seeking out additional information, I always read the reviews. Not being able to batch edit was one facet that led to reluctance on my part. But the straw that broke "this here camel's back" was upon reading that Adobe LR felt so little of their customers as to make photos only available to be downloaded in a wee little file while using the free app. The end result of such tactics is that your photo is practically worthless when you go to print it up. And maybe you don’t want to do so now but you never know when one of your photos will prove invaluable to you (for example, if a loved one passes on). Now I always make duplicates before I upload my shots to an app outside of Apple’s Photo. But I use my built-in camera. What if you use Adobe's app to take photos? Are you then "encouraged" to pay $60 a year in order to keep your photos in the best file size available? What about the time you’ve spent to edit your photos? I expected Lightroom to be a top quality app and perhaps it is, given that Adobe makes it. However, I am not looking for a free app. I’d be more than happy to pay a REASONABLE one time fee. Then I would actually own something! Adobe might best reconsider how they envision their customers. Photos are valuable to their owners– highly personal. But does that mean that a photography app should take their customers to the cleaners? There are many fine photo apps over here in the AppStorelandia!

    I think it would be nice if the heal tool was free because not everyone can buy a membership. And there should be an add photo button. And a draw button so you can draw on the photos. You should also add a reshape button so you can adjust some things. Other than that I think it’s great!
  • Great for beginners

    By b3@nz4u
    Using this on the iPad is pretty intuitive and the tutorials are super helpful for someone beginning to learn how to edit.
  • Prevent split screen. No way to compare & match photos

    By xFeenix
    Prevents split screen. (And provides no side by side comparison feature) so i have no way to match photos. I also can’t move the photo order. Renaming and then sorting by alphabetical not working either. Really slows down productivity, and makes the app close to useless for me.
