It’s Kinda Bad 2/5
I Downloaded this app thinking it was gonna be a decent photo editor app. I was wrong this app won’t let you do anything unless you use premium honestly I would rather use photos!
Impossible to use 1/5
The app quits every time I make a single edit. It’s beyond frustrating.
Wish the iPad Pro had more options 2/5
I’ve always really enjoyed using Lightroom. As a whole I would definitely give it 5 stars. However the iPad version seems lacking in areas that don’t make a lot of sense to me. I wish they’d at least have a better version for something like the iPad Pro.
Though the application can do most if not all the same things that the desktop version can do from and editing standpoint, it seems to be missing some features. I can’t search “Not In Any Album” on the iPad Pro making it very difficult to organize new uploads into my own Albums. I also can’t seem to find a way to edit some of the Meta Data on the iPad Pro. It seems silly that some of these features are missing given the power the rest of the application seems to have.
Given the new iPads and iPad Pros that just came out, I’m hoping to see some updates regarding this. Considering my newer iPad Pro is likely more powerful than my older MacBook I don’t see any reason as to why the iPad version can’t do all the same things as the full version on a MacBook Pro.
Great app 4/5
It’s a great app for editing your pics, especially for a free app. I just wish there was a way to stack images using the mobile version.
Must have for photographers 5/5
By Morgan Germani
I’m a photographer who really only shoots in RAW with a NIkon Z6 and I have a nifty device to plug my XQD card directly into my iPad and thankfully it’s so incredibly easy to import photos into Lightroom. I can do one at a time or I can import many more at a time. They populate my screen in Lightroom immediately and then I don’t have to keep my XQD card plugged in and instead I can get right to work. The tools in Lightroom on iPad are top tier in my opinion and I can do just about every thing I need to do. It works flawlessly. The only thing is I have to subscribe to edit RAW photos and I know Adobe is pretty greedy with their subscriptions but they only charge me $5 which is SUCH a blessing and a struggling photographer and it allows me to bring my photographer to such a greater level than I could without it and having it on my iPad is the greatest thing. My iPad is my main device for everything and it’s super mobile, fast, and perfect for all of my creative work and Lightroom is the center of all of that. I’m more than grateful for this software and all I can say is I hope the $5 a month subscription stays the same for a long time. This is the one Adobe software I can truly say it worth a monthly subscription on iPad.
Huge disappointment if you’re a pro LRC user 2/5
Missing key features. Stacking (organizing), color labels, and the keyboard shortcuts are very minimal (and should match the other LR products). And all the tapping needed to do simple tasks. Leave the panels open and not auto-close for example. I REALLY want to use this badly. It just seems sooooo not ready for quick pro workflows. It could be. Potential.
Limited functionality 1/5
Very limited functionality and sluggish experience. No way to opt-out from adobe surveillance.
Love it but……. 2/5
By Jeep Girl 99
I have a Lightroom subscription that I purchased some time ago to use on my Samsung S22 phone, I just purchased this IPad Pro in March for the sole purpose of using Lightroom to edit photos. I downloaded the Lightroom for IPad. I signed into my account and have been using it with no issues until the last few weeks. My two issues are one, Lightroom keeps telling me that my cloud storage is full and that I need to delete unwanted photos. I pay for 100 GB of Lightroom Cloud storage but my Lightroom for IPad app saids I’ve used 16.3 GB of 20 GB. Isn’t the IPad Lightroom app using the account I use for my Samsung? The other issues is the amount of space the actual app is using on my IPad. When I look in my settings for the apps I have downloaded, the Lightroom app shows its 40 GB of space!!!! With 90% if that 40GB being documents and data? What’s going on with that? When I checked this same info on my Samsung phone the Lightroom app for android is showing the app is only using 782 MB
Amazing and getting better! 5/5
What I love the most about the mobile version is that I can almost do everything I need when I am pressed for time and quick edits are acceptable. Granted, the app does allow you to be VERY targeted with some of your editing, but there are some detailed things you can only get from the desktop version. Something that I wish would get fixed and updated is that the new masking updates to the desktop version do not translate to the iPad version. For example, I used the new masking option to select iris and face on a portrait I was retouching but those edits did not translate to my iPad where I wanted to finish some edits before sharing via text and to my FB/IG (another GREAT advantage of the iPad version).
Heal brush 5/5
I genuinely love the app, it makes editing on the go so much easier. I really hate the new healing brush tool update. It worked so much better before.
Constant Issues and Missing Features 1/5
This is hands-down the worst app on my iPad. On numerous occasions it has frozen and crashed, wiping out 10+ minutes of edits that were supposed to have been saved to the cloud but weren’t. I’ve had to re-edit a bunch of pictures because Lightroom simply didn’t save any of the changes I made. It has constant issues with importing photos from an SD card, too. It will report that there is no space available when there is plenty, or it will simply fail altogether with no indication as to why. Just a few minutes ago I tried to import 82 photos from an SD card into Lightroom. It successfully imported only 17 of them. I tried importing all of them again in smaller batches of 10-15 photos, and each batch appeared to be successful. Upon removal of the SD card, however, I discovered that not a single one of the photos actually imported. On top of the constant technical issues this disaster of an app suffers from, it also lacks basic features that are present in the desktop app. Lightroom has been available on iPad for years, and yet essential functionality like HDR merging, panorama merging, and custom file naming schemes are still absent. The total lack of care put into the development of this app is astounding.
No Super Resolution...? 2/5
Wow, no love for iPad editors? LRC, LR, PS all get Super Resolution but nada for us? What happened to bringing all those beloved features from LR Classic that were suppose to show up in LR(Mobile/Lightroom). Very disappointed with you Adobe. First Apple drops the ball on iOS 15 and now this lame update…👎On top of that, still no Pano/HDR.😒
Great until you need to migrate account 3/5
I had to switch account and payment and the original photos were there but not the rating/culling so now I have to start over. That data should have been saved locally as well.
False advertising 1/5
It needs to say in app purchases. It’s fine they want to charge for their product but they should tell you up front.
iPad login does not recognize keyboard 2/5
I’m paying a monthly fee and I can’t use my email address to log in because the keyboard does not enable. Frustrating to say the least.
Light Room for I pad 5/5
By Deb's Golf
Excellent program. Easy to use. Helped to organize my photos
I like it so much… installed mobile and pc.
Tons of control on your pictures! 5/5
I like to take pictures in RAW on my phone and this app helps me edit those amazingly. If you just try to edit the RAW pictures with your native camera settings, you will get some distortion/discoloration that doesn’t look good at all! In my opinion, this is good for newbies like me and veterans. The app is very user-friendly and the tutorials are informative. The annual price for this application is well worth the money and actually is great value. Overall, this application makes me love my iPad a lot more and makes me want to go and take more photos. Editing made fun!
Amazing program! I couldn’t have learned it without my wonderful and talented instructor and camera coach, Rebecca Flores.
To much storage 1/5
For some reason, when I use this app. Delete the photos and permanently delete them it still thinks the app has 20gb on it.. there has to be a better solution then delete and renown load.
Wonderful App 5/5
By Kamrul Hasan Shanto
One of the best photo editing app.
Always there for me
Keeps crashing 1/5
How am I supposed to edit my photos when it crashes all the time. Just spent 30 min working on a piece, then poof. After another 10 min it crashed again. This has never been an issue before. Please fix.
👍🏼 perfect 5/5
By kawii girl 123
Don’t get this app it doesn’t even let you use it and premium is nothing like it says it is it doesn’t let you use your own photos and the editing doesn’t work! DONT GET THIS APP ITS A WAIST OF TIME AND MONEY
Help asap 1/5
Apps not loading my photos😩. I haven’t been able to use Lightroom in a few days and I’ve updated everything.
Lightroom Simplicity 5/5
Easy to use software. Would recommend to new photographers.
By tdl random
I love to use Lightroom to edit, however my iPad will quickly overheat and restart when using this specific app. It will do it sometimes when using Photoshop, but every time using Lightroom. Sometimes I am only able to use Lightroom for 2 minutes before it begins doing this. I have used my iPad Pro with other apps and don’t seem to have this issue. PLEASE fix this or I will be making a switch!!
The heal tool isn’t intuitive and looks like crap. Even your own example (louvre) looks cheap. How is adobe still in business?
Subscription based software LOL 1/5
Get bent and kick sand. Charging a sub to use software you used to be able to buy? HAHAHA no. Only reason they went this route was because they didn’t like that pirates were getting their software because their prices were outlandish.
This entire company is nothing but garbage greed.
I’d have happily paid a one time purchase, I’ll go elsewhere.
Excellent! A very useful and productive program for photographers of all levels 5/5
Raw previews 2/5
On importing new pictures from an SD card can’t see raw previews. Which is frustrating for a member.
Panorama Stitching 3/5
Where is a panorama stitcher???
Water mark 1/5
I cannot add my water mark yet I have the same setting on my iPad that I have on my iPhone 🤬
My Go-To Photo Editor, But… 4/5
By Ben Kenon
I love using Lightroom to edit iPhone RAW images. I find I’m able to consistently get polished images that look more professional. Being able to use Apple Pencil is a gigantic plus as well; I’m much more steady and precise with a pencil than a finger, a mouse or a trackpad.
My major concern is how hot my M1 iPad Pro 11 gets when using Lightroom. Ditto my iPhone 13 Pro. I understand that pushing the processor is going to create heat BUT if I didn’t/couldn’t get AppleCare+ I would almost be afraid to use this app.
So it’s a good app for people who like to take and edit photos but Adobe needs to address the heat issue to make sure Lightroom isn’t damaging devices.
Collection Syncing Fail 1/5
As a local editing option the mobile version of LR has come a long way and is great to use with the Apple Pencil. If you plan to manage files in LR Classic and edit photos as synced Collections… prepare for infuriating disappointment that varies by updates. Currently, only 20-30% of the photos sync and the edits made in mobile fail to sync back to Classic.
By Julianna Sedano
Lightroom has been very slow and I tired to get help from the support but was not much help! I do photography and it is very frustrating that I cannot edit my photos. It was a very good editing app up until now
A breeze 5/5
Easy to Import RAW files (I have CR2 format), no hitches when editing & easy to use once you understand the basics. Bonus for in-app mini tutorials created by professionals, & the added feature to edit others’ original photos. Switched from Samsung phone to iPad mini (6th gen) & instantly became a better experience. I use Google Drive for storage, which in turn means I’m all set for whatever photos I may export.
Better CA adjustments needed 3/5
Please add a better adjustment option to control chromatic aberration in photos. The rest of the app is great and works the same as my desktop version - why leave a more robust CA tool out and only have a terrible on/off switch function for it? You can do better.
It’s the bomb! 5/5
I have had Lightroom for a while now and have found it to be “can’t do without” program right along with Photoshop, I love it!
Going pro 5/5
By Dumbledore 1000,000
From being a weekend photographer snapping pictures of whatever I can to becoming a professional photographer, Lightroom has been pivotal in my development.
Great Companion App 4/5
Great companion app that allows for quick edits and sharing of pictures.
No go on iPad Pro 3/5
On my regular iPad from a few years ago, this app is great. Figured I’d upgrade to the pro for a larger screen, but it doesn’t take up the whole screen as if it wasn’t formatted for this.
Awesome software user friendly
***Makes ipadpro very hot *** 1/5
By D.r A.M.C
There is a serious bug makes ipadpro very warm and drains battry.
New update can’t export, incredibly slow 1/5
By John H. V2
I last used this program a year or two ago on my iPad Air 2 and everything worked fine and it was snappy and responsive this new version is a complete and utter failure on my iPad perhaps it was optimized only to work with the very latest and newest of iPads? I don’t know I’m not an expert all I know is I can’t use this program to edit my photos it won’t even export jpgs it gets hung at 80% and every time I change a photo setting there is a second long delay which didn’t happen in the old version.
::::: 0 stars unusable :::::
Can’t edit videos anymore 2/5
By False Aster
I usually don’t do much video editing in Lightroom but now it won’t let me at all which is unfortunate.
Can’t download on new iPad 1/5
All other Adobe apps downloaded on iPad, except this one. No matter what I do and what help communities suggest, can’t get it to download. Just spins and then the download icon pops back up.
