Love it! 5/5
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!
Love the app/NOT the monthly $9.99 charge! 4/5
I love this app...it is pretty user friendly and I’ve enjoyed the editing tools and the versatility.
I would’ve given LR 5 stars except for the monthly charge.
I totally understand you need to pay your developers. I just can’t justify $10 a month in my budget.
Storage low 1/5
I don’t have any photos in my Lightroom and it says low storage so it won’t let me edit.
Seriously ? 2/5
I’ve been paying a subscription to your app for over a year now, I use it daily for my business, but when your app fails to renew my subscription and I follow the ONE support button given your sales rep tells me you guys can’t offer service to your OWN app ? Talk about not even providing the bare minimum to your mobile users.
Powerful app! A few recommendations!! Please read 4/5
Overall this app does exactly what its supposed to. Please add options for custom watermark via png upload (kind of like whats available in photoshop express). I am currently bouncing between the two apps for a custom watermark. Also please add option for editing directly from the camera roll! Or at least fix photoshop from crashing in camera roll edits. Other than that great app would recommend
Adobe seems to be abandoning creative professionals and marketing to the casual user or prosumer.
Why does this app upload to/from lightroom classic, but classic can't access any photos added directly to the app? Whatever. But then why once you reach 20gb on this app do all syncs stop in both this and Adobe LR classic?! And good luck figuring out what to delete to free up space because there is absolutely no way to tell what is from this app and what is from ado e LR classic.
If you find this review confusing, you're the new Adobe market and you'll probably like the app. Im so frustrated with Adobe.
It’s ok 2/5
Unless you subscribe to the 1 TB cloud storage then this app is pretty much useless. For an iphone app there isn’t much here offered that is better than other editing apps. I’ll stick to doing all my editing in Lightroom Classic.
It causes battery draining and overheating issues. 3/5
I face some problems with this app in my iphone Xs, after few minutes of use my phone gets overheating and battery is being decreased very fast. Please fix these issues.
Paid subscription not recognized by Adobe 2/5
It’s a good app but I paid my subscription through my iTunes account but on the app it says that subscription has expired. I contacted the developer and they told me to contact apple. I contacted apple and they told me to contact the developer. So I pretty much paid for a month that I didn’t get to use the app. No support what so ever.
Almost perfect 4/5
Couldn’t live without it. Just wished it had the feature of pulling the pictures into Lightroom directly from the SD card on iOS devices
What a joke 1/5
Tried downloading it to edit some pictures i had only to find out i can’t even upload my photos onto lightroom. It’ll say “photo failed to upload” waste my time.
Really buggy. 1/5
Having the worst time editing my photos. I try to work on my photos between my Mac and iOS and is has syncing problems. Masking using the gradient tools is a nightmare on the iPad. They really should have refined Lightroom cc before putting it into the consumer market.
Does not sync with desktop 1/5
Lightroom was updated on my iPhone 7. It was a completely different look and does not sync with desktop LR. Something is seriously wrong. Talked with tech support for 45 minutes and could not solve the problem. They said to call tech support in couple days to see if more people have problems with the upgrade. Currently it is useless for Adobe Cloud subscription users. Wish I could give it 0 stars at the moment. But I do love Adobe otherwise.
Upgrade account 1/5
By bvf. mohfd
Hello you guys are charging me and doesn’t let me use the upgrade features, says I have to pay again. Pleas help
Trial has expired 1/5
Lost my photos on this update same as my presets
The BEST photography app ever. Period. 5/5
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.
Not much but filters 3/5
By Poochy Kitty
Theres hundreds of apps to use for filters and brightness, you have to pay to get anything good
Lightroom is Great! 5/5
I love Lightroom and how the photo library is set up for you to store images and find them with different sorting filters. Everything about Lightroom is thought with in a very easy work flow so editing is very smooth. The only thing I could say is I wish that there was an easier way to get presets as I edit from my Iphone and don’t have a computer to download presets from so it becomes a complicated process of getting presets.
This Is Sad, Really Sad 1/5
By Joshua D.
This is the best Adobe can do? Haha! I probably own ten photo editor applications that I paid fully for the entire apps, without some greedy subscription plan, that put Lightroom to shame in my opinion.
I get that this is a mobile version of the desktop app. But, is this really all it offers?! Man! The desktop app must be atrocious then if this is just a small portion of it. I would think it could only go downhill from here on the desktop version if this is how Adobe chooses to represent the program in its mobile form.
Lightroom is seriously limited I think, there's next to nothing offered here that was not included in a basic photo editor program over 15 years ago. Well, the 'Selective' and 'Healing' features might be more advanced than that. But, I'm not throwing away money monthly to lease a photo editing application that offers these few, incredibly basic, features. The thought of subscribing to Lightroom is one of the most ridiculous propositions I've ever heard. Seriously.
Even something such as the original Facetune program offers way more features than this Adobe app. I thought Adobe was the king of photo editors? Seeing, Lightroom, you'd be more inclined to believe they are the court jester of photo editors.
What is offered here is the absolute, most basic editing tools ever it looks like to me. To think and imagine that there are actual humans out there who would subscribe monthly for the paltry features available in this Lightroom app it's, well, scary to say the least.
If you want real, decent photo editors that aren't greedy, don't ask for a monthly payment to lease the app and actually offer worthwhile and many more features than this grade school level program. Well, then, here are a few apps I'd recommend instead of Lightroom -
- Facetune (only the first and original version, though, the sequel to Facetune is greedy madness)
- Filterstorm Neue
- Mix on Pix
- Enlight (only the first version and even then it is hard to recommend because that company is greedy, but, still, better than Lightroom I believe)
- Over (I wouldn't subscribe to their garbage either, but the free options still are more professional and top Adobe Lightroom)
- Formulas (photo FX app, not a full editor)
- Vintage Photo (photo FX app, not a full editor)
You'd be doing much better with any of those apps I recommended in my opinion, way, way better as compared to Adobe Lightroom.
Most of those apps I listed are paid apps. But, most of them only ask that you pay them ONE TIME and most of them don't do the subscription stuff. And pretty much all of them offer way better and many more varied features than what Adobe is offering here. Before you pay monthly or for anything in Lightroom, I implore you to check out the better alternative photo apps I listed above.
Again, though, is this Adobe Lightroom app seriously the best the creators of Photoshop can do in terms of a photo editor application on iOS? Just sad as I mentioned in my review title, sad.
It looks like to me that the least amount of thought and time was given to constructing this program. It's like they weren't even trying and just figured your average customer is so inept, ignorant and gullible that they'd settle for even the most basic features out there. With the addition of two features found in most competent photo editors, that they want you to lease and pay monthly for here.
I love to support hard working developers and companies who ask that you only pay one time for their entire app or video game and my App Store purchase history reflects that fact. But, I wouldn't be caught dead spending the lint in my pocket on such an insanely lackluster offering from Adobe in this Lightroom application. Seriously, there is nothing offered here at all. I find that they want people to pay monthly for Lightroom to be an insult of the highest magnitude.
Slow, hard to use, paywall is confusingly implemented 2/5
I’ve found this slow and hard to use. I have an iPhone X, which is quite a fast phone.
Also, I cant seem to get anything to work. Some features appear to be behind a paywall. That’s cool, and I’m happy to pay for apps.
Other features just seem disabled, and appear free (no purchase required). What’s the deal with those? I don’t know.
The above—what’s free and what requires a subscription—is quite opaque to me.
Not allowed to use 1/5
By Damir :)
Won’t let me use due to some service eligibility terms
Great interface, but still needs improvement. 2/5
This app really does (almost) function as my editing software go-to for all my photos when I’m unable to use a desktop version. There are some limitations, but for the most part I have no complaints about the software itself.
My *one* complaint is that every time I open the app I’m asked to sign in again. It’s cumbersome and a definite deterrent. If I’m trying to do a quick edit on the fly, having to remember my user ID and password (despite having checked any ‘remember me’ options) is really annoying.
By Au Cheval
I got this app because I love taking photos and learning new techniques. I immediately tried to sign up for an account but it said “access denied”. I refreshed the app and tried again, but still “access denied”. I was so confused why this was happening. I was so excited to see all the cool features but unfortunately, all I could see was the access denied screen.
Drains battery like a black hole 1/5
I’d never seen my battery drop as quickly as when using this app...
The phone gets super hot too after just a few shots...
Best picture editor yet 4/5
I find it difficult though to copy my raw files. Apart from getting them synced via creative cloud I wish I could copy them to my windows PC without struggle.
Click and drop from iTunes does not work. I just click and press save icon.
Copying breaks when the raw files folder is heavy (about 500MB), can this be optimized?
Bandwidth to sync raw files is not affordable for everyone.
One annoying thing 5/5
This is probably the most essential app for everyone. However, there’s one single thing which needs to be fixed. I can’t import photos even if i have 500mb free on my phone.
Does not actually light anything typical filter app 1/5
By Pol Lite
App is exactly like Facetune. There’s nothing different. Their is nothing in the app that anyone would consider a special lighting tool or a set of unique lighting tools within the app thus failing to differentiating itself from any other app. The reason it gets a one is because the advertisements on Instagram and it’s name insinuate that it does.
So you want me to sign in just to edit a photo? No thanks I’ll find another app that doesn’t require this kind bullshlt
iPad Pro 12.9 inch 1/5
So sad that when I try to download it says not compatible
Love it, but.......please help 3/5
When I go to use the app, it locks my phone up, or shuts down suddenly(crashes)
Worked great, now having problems. 2/5
The app worked amazingly and now I can’t get any of my photos up on the app. It won’t open my camera roll or any of my albums on my phone. I’ve updated it after the last update and now nothing. I tried to get help from their website customer service and nothing. I hope this is fixed soon or wish someone would get back to me about how to fix it.
NOT Compatible with new iPad Pro 12.9”!!! 1/5
I just bought the new iPad Pro 12.9” and found that this app is “not compatible with this device” when I try to install it!
Issue fixed 5/5
I had an issue with my photos not being able to be uploaded from the camera roll, however the issue fixed itself. Not sure what happened, may have just been a glitch or bug, but all good now and I had someone reach out so very good App and team!
Love this app! 5/5
I have been using this app for a few months and I absolutely love. I would recommend for the app to have an extension from the photos app on iOS. It would make my workflow so much faster and efficient.
Won’t let me edit anything it just loops when I click to edit a photo
Don’t waste your time 1/5
Every single time I try to add a photo it just says “cannot load photo”. Every. Single. Time. Really annoying, doesn’t even work
Too complicated for a novice 1/5
I don’t recommend it unless you are an experienced photographer. Complicated download unlike most apps. I had much better luck with another free app from the iTunes Store.
THERE’S NO WAY TO CANCEL SUBSCRIPTION 1/5
I WANT TO CANCEL SUBSCRIPTION THAT I DID NOT MEAN TO PURCHASE. YOU PEOPLE HAVE MADE THIS UNBELIEVABLY DIFFICULT. THERE IS NO OPTION WITHIN APP TO CANCEL AND I AM STILL (STILL!) SEARCHING THE INTERNET HIGH AND LOW TO FIND AN ANSWER.
CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
In the preview pictures of the app they show that you can use healing feature but as soon as you install the app you will find that this feature is not free!!!!!
By loyal fan999999
Make a full version which isn’t consistent because it’s 9.99 a month and way more better because we don’t have to worry about it like 20-30$ like around there other wise it’s basically the closest thing to mobile photoshop👍
Deceptive Bait & Switch 1/5
Before downloading this app, I read that it would be $4.99 for the “Premium“ version. Upon installing the app & trying to upgrade, I observed that there is only a $9.99 recurring charge option! Come on, wake up fellow users and don’t except these never-ending charges!!!
June 4, 2019 5/5
Love the update!!! Keep it up😎
Picked up an itunes card to restore my account and went through the payment process. Said it was successful and took the $10.99 out of my account but I still cannot use selective and healing adjustments. Pleas help because I use both a ton:(
Lightroom..... eh. 2/5
Okay so I noticed I had downloaded light room before, and went through the main page and looked at all the screenshots etc etc. downloaded it. And then once I opened the app I realized why I have already downloaded and then deleted it.....
I extremely dislike SUBSCRIPTION apps. I will gladly fork out a pricey 1 time payment, but you will not get me paying 10$ a month, for a photoshop app on my phone.... when I have the whole adobe collection on my Mac.
So without paying 10$ a month, you can crop/rotate and put some filters on your photos. Oh boy. There’s plenty of free or relatively cheaper options.
Yes to Adobe 5/5
I am so grateful to Adobe for all hard work they do! For only $10 bucks you get this greatest app with 1 TB Of Could Storage and there is so much more that they are constantly improving! Thanks to this Backup i saved all my pictures when iCloud did not back them up properly.
One think I have to mention that it works much more seamlessly with my IPhones X than previous models so never versions require your device to be up to date.
Doesn’t custom crop anymore. 1/5
The custom crop function has ceased to work on the app, rendering it useless for me. Now I have to send my phone images to my MacBook and edit them there if I can’t use a standard crop, then send them back to my phone to upload to Instagram or another phone-centric app. What a pain! I’m furious.
Paste presets to multiple images? 1/5
Curious why I’m not able to select multiple images and paste presets to multiple images? It forces me to spend a much longer amount of time pasting to each individual image. Even if there was a limit of images to paste to, like 10?
Everything is great but would love if you can improve the quality of photos, have all advanced tools ready for everyone to use, and hope you can gather up ideas to put in this app of Lightroom cc for professional photographers please. Love the app. Hope you can read everyone’s reviews and gather up an idea for the next update
I give one star because I can’t buy the premium version it only offers me the subscription and I don’t want that,I will give 5 stars back when someone of the support team fix my issue
