  • Best thing out there, but still needs work

    By JamesDaHall
    I’ve been using Lightroom for iPad for about a year now, and it has made my photography workflow so much more enjoyable, and efficient. However it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. There are a lot of features that this app is missing that are a a true shame. One of the biggest issues that I’ve had with it is the general way that Adobe seems to treat iPad users like kids playing on a toy, and not creative professionals leveraging the latest in technology. Perfect example of this, if you are a paid Adobe creative cloud user, and you try to sync a file from your desktop to your iPad so that you can work on it, it will not come over in full res, in fact the only way that I’ve seen to introduce files in full quality to the iPad Lightroom workflow is by a direct import. Speaking of which, while I have nothing but praise for adobe in adding this highly demanded feature, they’ve not done a great job at maintaining it. At the time of this writing, the ‘new’ simplified way of adding photos to Lightroom on the iPad has not been updated to work on iPad OS 13.5 There are a lot of other little things like this throughout, Apple Pencil for example technically works in this app, but due to the way they process inputs it will make the process of working with it feel much lower, and actually less precise than just using your fingers. Over all this is a great app, and I continue to pay a yearly fee to use it because of that, I just wish that Adobe would take a more aggressive stance on turning Lightroom in to the creative work powerhouse it’s clearly meant to be.
  • Needs Improvement

    By SamRoyal
    Just here to complain about a bug where lightroom doesn't seem to detect my SD card reader but the files app does. No option to import from camera device. (10.5" iPad Pro) Also annoying that the pictures do not import in order. If I import a lot of images and start culling/editing them before the import is complete I will have to do multiple passes as pictures 1, 4, and 5 will be imported before 2 and 3. Just tiresome with an upload of more than a few pictures. Only workaround i found is import wait up to an hour then cull.
  • Pls fix it

  • Please add HDR merge

    Hi! I’m a real estate photographer and I bring my iPad to all my shoots. Would love to have HDR merge implemented into LR mobile so that I can check my shots while I’m on location. Thank you!
  • A great companion for my phone and compliments the desktop version well

    By clarkyule
    I think the app does a great job at what it set out to do and has become my “go to” after trialing other apps. It does a great job of allowing me to use my phone for more “serious” photography while staying within my desktop workflow if desired. Artistically I’m happy with what it can do. However, my only complaint is that it runs a little slow on both my new Samsung S20+ and older ipad.
  • Waste of space and time

    By Coltan A Cannon
    I thought this was free and you can’t do anything unless you pay I’m just a kid and wants to mess around with photos for free but then there is that one thing that says you need money for stupid light
  • Can’t wait till they decide to finish it.

    As a backup and an editor, it’s amazing. The client sharing feature could make a LOT more sense though. For instance, why let the client like photos if your not going to let me use the filter option to see what they liked? Why not let the client filter what they see and narrow down the choices. These are just a couple examples of purely common sense things that are not thought through. It’s very frustrating for myself and the client. I don’t see the hearts on my computer app (why? How hard is that to code? Computers are not obsolete lol). I know it’s cloud based but that’s no excuse. Making the experience consistent on all devices would make sense. It really is like they just weren’t thinking. At first I thought it was because it was new and they would update soon and work out the kinks. It’s been out for a while now and still a terrible sharing workflow. Adobe, a lot of us are pros. It’s nice to have a cataloger. But client interaction and workflow are how we get more images to catalogue. Please fix the sharing problems. Start by at LEAST adding liked pictures to the filter options on all devices. Just that would save me quite a bit of wasted time going back and forth between views and putting key words or stars on the liked images just so I can limit my view to those. Then creating and sharing a new album every time it gets narrowed down so the client it’s frustrated out of their minds. Give usage heart on the liked images in the edit window if we like. We’d really appreciate it.
