Many basic features which are free with other apps are premium only here. The description does not show the limitation of the free version. I'm baffled why anyone would pay for a monthly subscription if they're only taking pics on their iPhone. If you're editing on the desktop or have a DSLR I can justify that.
In the meantime I'll use my desktop light room application and uninstall the mobile version from my phone.
BTW. Adobe: you should add "Night Site/Night Shot" mode like the Pixel has
Truly the future of photography 5/5
Has the best camera of all the apps I tried. The HDR mode is simply awesome. The auto tuning of RAW images are just perfect. Provides fine grained control over my photos. This is a must have app for anyone interested in photography. The $4.99 per month subscription is totally worth it. I went ahead and bought their $9.99 package which includes the desktop app and 1TB of space. Lightroom and Photoshop Express for mobile are the only two apps I frequently use in my day to day photography.
Won’t let me import pics 1/5
So all was fine and dandy, I was starting to get the hang of editing photos in Lightroom, then suddenly the app’s not letting me upload & edit anymore pictures. Once I select a photo to import to the app, it just continues loading and loading and it never gets imported for me to edit it. Is this an isolated issue for me? I only have 20 photos on the app? Please help!
So useful 4/5
By far my favorite photo editing app! The only thing I would improve would be to add a layer opacity for presets. I love making/downloading presets, but I’d like have a layer opacity or something to adjust the intensity of it without having to go back and adjust everything individually
Almost Perfect! 4/5
This app is great! It has nearly everything Lightroom CC has! I’m sure it’s missing a few things, but one thing I noticed is that you can’t duplicate a photo. Should be an added feature! Also, I kind of wish the sliders were less sensitive. I feel like I’m barely moving my fingers and the slider shoots to like 75. That might just be a me problem 🤷🏻♀️
Needs update for iPad Pro 11 inch
Add Auto Mask 4/5
Now that apple pencils and other tablets are all the rage, it would be nice to have auto mask so you can draw on a nice clean mask!
Its awesome, but crashes often. 3/5
I love this app, but it crashes often. There is still nothing better, but I wish it didn’t crash so often. Specifically, when cropping for some reason.

Best Mobile Photo Editor 4/5
Having Lightroom mobile is a game changer for me. I can take my iPad with me on shoots and if I want to show a client an instant proof, it’s actually possible with my presets and editing capabilities no longer tied to just my laptop. The only thing I’d like to see different in this app is the ability for me to make adjustments from the native photos app with the photos actions api that Apple offers.
this is the best app I have ever downloaded !! it’s so good at making me look like a halfway decent person. i haven’t been disappointed !!
All photos gone 1/5
I absolutely love this app, and I opened it one day to edit a photo and it crashed, and I reopened it, and every single one of my edited photos were gone.
Still no custom export settings! 😠 1/5
When are we going to be able to customize our own export settings?! It been so many years and yet, they still don’t want to give us the features where you export on your own custom settings! 👎🏼 This is very important feature for us photographer to be able to control the way how we want it.
I saw the in-app purchase for a premium is $4.99. But when i try purchasing it in the app it keeps letting purchase the $9.99! I thought its only $4.99?? I just want the premium and not the light CC stuff
The app 1/5
The app is terrible there are better free ones This app is too expensive $10 a month for what? For 💩
Latest Version Crashes Upon Launch 1/5
I cannot get past the Lightroom logo. I have tried everything. Updating my iOS. App still crashes. Restarting my phone. App still crashes. Hard reset of phone. Still crashes. Deleting and reinstalling app. Still crashes. Used to work like a charm - not sure what changed but I’m bummed out.
Hands down best mobile app! 5/5
By Wesley Brilhante
I’m a hardcore adobe fan but the software that has been working the best for me out of all the creative cloud platform it’s no doubt the Lightroom mobile, i have spent tons of money on expensive softwares, apps and different hardware stuff trying to get my pictures to the next level but I can’t stop using Lightroom mobile,I love using my iPhone and most of the time I’m flying my drone and like to edit my pictures on the spot right after I’m finished so I don’t know anything else as good or as close to Lightroom mobile, not to mention that once you have done some of the work on the go once you hit the computer it’s synced with your Lightroom desktop version so you can either keep working on the desktop or laydown and keep working on the mobile version on your phone, and the best part for me is that is very convenient to just grab the phone out of the pocket and take a picture instead of using a huge DSLR for a simple picture that sometimes you might not have time to setup the tripod and everything before the subject has moved etc , I like to have a camera for every scenario, GoPro for under water, drone for aerial photography, DSLR for my professional photography and my iPhone photography for quick snaps that I don’t feel like carrying a huge bag full of accessories and for every one of those cameras Lightroom mobile app works well!
It won’t let me edit photos at ALL any effect or setting I click makes the option of the upgrade come on the screen, and when I exit out and try again it just keeps telling me to upgrade. I’m just stuck on a loop :(
Impressive Capability 5/5
By Ajay 2011
I continue to be impressed by the improving functionality being added to this powerful program, using in conjunction with desktop Lightroom CC means I have access to my best captures at all times, and can even edit and export as needed. Can’t wait for Photoshop to join my mobile workflow.
By BV bendbfbdhjs
If you are a kid, you should put an age older than what you are or else they wont let u do it
Awesome app but..... 4/5
I think this is a great editing app. Love what you can do with it but the issue I have is the $10 a month upgrade. I think it needs to be a one time charge and call it good.
Latest update caused app to crash as soon as I try to open it 4/5
Not sure what changed but, this latest update has rendered the app useless to me. Im unable to even get past the first screen before it shuts down
Finally Lightroom mobile is getting closer to Desktop experience 4/5
Lightroom is really getting better and better! Apple Pencil support makes finally close to the Desktop app experience.
Still works fine most of the time, but never works 100%
Sometimes export to Camera Roll crashes after you selected 50 photos - never don't know why - and you start selecting from scratch and trying, trying, trying... to export all of them. Sometimes photos appear rotated when you expand them, but look perfectly fine in thumnbnail view or deskeop. Sometimes you cannot sync photos between this app and Lightroom Classic. Sometimes.... You never know what kind of a bug you will face in Lightroom but it always pops up in the middle when you don't expect it.
But in any case Lightroom mobile finally got much much better. A way to go! Yay.
Will not load 1/5
I’ve tried to download this on my phone more than once, it lets me log in but it refuses to get through the “loading” screen.
Paid for CC and won’t let me use it.
Healing brush not working 4/5
When I select healing and brush over subject, it automatically selects the stamp tool. There’s currently no way around this. Please fix this bug and I will change my rating, thanks.
Couldn’t get access to camera 5/5
I just downloaded this application, but couldn’t use it because I don’t have ability to set access to camera. I’m using iPhone 6s and IOS 12.1.2
Changing my original review 5/5
The problem with preset was fixed. It is back to being a great app
Absolutely amazing, only 1 down side 4/5
When it comes to photo editing, this is truly the cream of the crop. You won’t find a better editing app to freely edit your photos in detail.
You can’t go wrong with it!
If you are importing presets be sure to import them directly into a folder or you will need to move them each 1 by 1 which can take hours if you have a ton. I didn’t know this and they all got uploaded into the user preset folder and there isn’t a way to batch delete them and re upload. This is the ONLY reason I gave a 4 star.
Would even love to see them add a simple option to search presets by name. Or be able to manage more than 1 at a time. This would get 10 stars out of me lol.
Regardless, I highly recommend.
Seriously Ticked Off 1/5
Purchased this app, then upgraded my iPad and now I can’t update the app. Give me a break, Adobe.
Dropped support for regular iPad 1/5
Obvious collusion between apple and adobe to push iPad Pro sales.
Can’t edit anymore. 1/5
Yo, I literally cannot do edits anymore. It always buffers when I try to edit. I’m using my iphone 7s+.
Please enable custom presets
App freezes 3/5
Every time after I upload a picture to Lightroom on my iPhone XS, the app freezes up after I start editing in the first few minutes. It’s extremely annoying that I have to restart the app and restart my edit because the picture didn’t sync due to the app freezing. Please fix this ASAP!!
Small issue 3/5
By Jale Bosh
Once I auto correct the lighting a red box appears in the upper left corner of the picture.
CANNOT IMPORT!!!!!!! 4/5
I have a 16gb phone and even if i have 600mb of free storage I cannot import a photo and have to delete many things to import just one 3mb photo and edit it. PLEASE FIX THIS.
NEED. BETTER. WATERMARK. SUPPORT. 3/5
I love this app but just one thing I can’t do on it right now is to use the watermark I want to use. Right now you can only add plain text as a watermark but the ability to upload your own and sync across your Adobe account to use everywhere would be incredibly useful! Especially if you could upload your own .ai watermark to Adobe and use it cross platform.
Can others see my phone photo library?! 1/5
It asked me if I “want to be alerted when others comment on my photos”..... uh, can other people SEE my entire phones photo library????!
Please please please 4/5
Allow us professional photographers a way to export full sized images. I would love the ability to use both the mobile version and desktop version simultaneously. I would love to give access to photos to my clients on the go. Right now I can’t do that because I STILL can’t send photos to a client from lightroom mobile in full resolution. WHY?????!!!!!!!
Ridiculously Helpful 5/5
I was so worried that this app would have basic edits and then everything else would be behind a paywall, but it really is in depth enough for me as the free version. Some features that are super helpful:
- You can save your editing and return to continue, even undo, previous work
- Vibrancy vs saturation
- "Profiles"-- Definitely not filters, more of launch off points for different edit combinations.
Basically, I just kicked every single one of my photos up five notches. From the ones I didn't think could be good photos to the ones I didn't think could improve.
I need to cancel subscription 1/5
I been trying to cancel my subscription, the app makes it so hard to find a way. I need help, don’t want to get charge again.
A bug?? 2/5
The app was ok then updated, now it’s a nightmare. Doesn’t load or upload, can’t use any of my presets much less edit any pic! So fix the bug maybe???
Love where this is going, but losing edits from crashing! 3/5
Insanely convenient and brings powerful editing on the go. But I’ve hours of editing from two different images in the last day. Both times I tried to use the healing tool and the app locked up.
It froze and then re-loaded (didn’t crash completely), and then ALL of my mobile edits reset to the image originally uploaded from computer. I don’t understand, why aren’t changes being saved live-time on a CC sync based app?
I had this app for months and months and then all of a sudden started getting a bill monthly for 9.99
What is going on! ??
Paid features are hard to use for the money. 1/5
By Health Squad
I just wasted 9.99 to use a premium feature that’s difficult to use, and isn’t useful at all. That’s 9.99 per month mind you.
Not happy, and would like my money back. Have already canceled the sub.
Great for editing 4/5
By I go to Everglades
Only down side is there isn’t any calibration tab like there is on the desktop version. Not sure if there is a calibration tab for iPad. But it helps so much with the color of pictures and is a needed addition to the mobile version
Im having a blast 5/5
By e ya boi
I really enjoy this app its helped out so much
Wish , it could get more optimized and more play around tools with photos , in coming days
FIX THE PRESET BUG!! 1/5
By Trump's Bald Spot
A lot of my presets are synced to Lightroom CC but are no longer showing up in this app. There is no option to select show “partially compatible presets” but the option is still there on the Android version. Please fix this on iOS.
