Rehan Hooda

Great App, Can be improved a bit Love the functionality it offers since the addition of SD Card Support. Little things like easy copy and paste of settings and easy sync of settings can absolutely make it perfect :D

Gilberto Amaya

Sync It takes up to 3 to 4 days to sync my collections. When they do sync it works great.

Emmett Turner

Great app but The adobe cc subscription plans are a scam. You cant even build your own plan its all pre packaged for ya

Nik Saiful Anuar

make it one time purchase app better that this app is one time purchase, not by monthly subscription, I like it when we can use this app when ever we like it, from camera, transfer to phone, CC concept is not really practical in this king of situation

Rick Davis

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 What a great companion app Adobe. It does the things I need to do on the move and the more complex things, I'll get them done on my PC on the full Lightroom program when I get home. Keep it coming Adobe.

Arseny Tolmachev

It asks for login every time I start it and that is very annoying. On my iPad it does not behave that way.

Karl Wodtke

Need option for JPEG compression!!! The size of the output files are tiny. You need to include a resolution and compression option. Destroy details in photos coming from a Note 4 and S6.

Jonpaul Wright

Rubbish. Application constantly errors and stops. Since update. I'm sure that the functionality would be great but not stable. Application deleted and reinstall did not work. Following the latest update (bug fixes) works as designed. Thanks.

Salman Abid Daniel

The best editing picture of all time! Although it's not as same as Lightroom on PC but maybe there'll be some improvements but still 5 stars because for me it's the best in Play Store

Gerald Koh

I can barely even login due to the required password reset.

Bradycardia Weerapong

Useful APP But I don't like monthly subscription...make an one time purchase option I will give you 5 stars.

Jeff Johnston

Not compatible with the Nexus 10 Tablet! Now it works with my Nexus 10!:)

Gynda Rocher

Its ok Takes days to sync... But what i would really like to see is key wording.. I don't edit on my phone. But to be able to key word on the go would make work flow a lot better. Its nice to pull up and show m,y collections and share.

Paul Johnston

Can this app sync keywords for tagging?

Maciek Arczyński

I really would like to use this app, but there is one problem. I can't even add photos from my Google drive. Even if I saved them on my device I can not do it anyway. Donno, is it somethings wrong with me or this app? Little help with that thing, please.

Brandon Jackson

Too cool man. I'm worked ng on it.

Hope Webb-Rist

Crashes everytime I downloaded this app to work with my pc. And it crashes everytime I open it. To me it ain't good.

Bob Jetter

Stopped working App won't launch after upgrade.... was good now useless.... Samsung Galaxy Note4

Aswin Peter

Good app The app is good .but some problem .in this app only effect.the app want more things like cloning,brushing,sketching.the major problem is that it is a online app

Caroline Hampton

Like it but .. I'd like it more if when I create albums/sets on my phone/tablet I can choose for LR to auto-upload from a specific place. Atm auto-upload can only come from my phone's 'camera' gallery album, but I'd like to have an instagrams set that auto-uploads from my phone's Instagram gallery album

Andrew Lalchan

Very good app I use all the time Some additions you could add us the ability to export with signatures and keywords. Keep up the good work :)

Theodore Stauffer

Good, with reservations It's a good app and does raw editing very well, BUT it is a terrible energy hog (good luck editing more than two or three images) and it requires an Adobe CC account to work.

Edward Marczak

Nearly Pointless Lightroom Mobile is missing many of the features that set it apart from other (often free) apps. Sure, there are the familiar filters, but where are lens corrections, noise reduction, and other fine controls? *This* is what Adobe can bring to this category. Syncing photos? We have ways of doing that. Lightroom Mobile would shine if I shot from my DSLR, could pop pictures over via EyeFi, and then edit, with near feature parity to the desktop version on my phone or tablet.

Robert Graham

Somewhat crippled by lack of smooth zoom Can't zoom in smoothly, seems to only zoom in coarse increments. Very disappointed, the mobile app should me mainly about viewing quality, leave most of the editing on the desktop

Silviu Vulcan

A good app but a bit shy of five stars Last update forced me to reinstall. I dislike the fact that it doesn't sync in the background, the way dropbox does; I have to remember to start the application manually to have the photos from the camera synced. Many reviewers discarding it as useless don't understand the main appeal of this application: tagging, rejecting, starring images before you sit down at your computer to do the real editing work.

Matthew McCann

Seems to be improving, lots still to do. Needs colour calibration & more tools. Sticking with Photo Mate R2 but keeping an eye on this. Seems it's moving in right direction but trial expired so can't say personally. I'm a LR5 owner with no CC account. LR6 is tempting me to go CC. With PS CC & LR on mobile package just about getting worthwhile now. What would convince me would be reading my X-Rite ColorTrue profile for a calibrated screen. I only work from a calibrated screen at home, should be same on mobile. Also needs noise reduction & other essential tools. Will keep watching for improvements but for now sticking with Photo Mate R2.

Ryan Monroe

Awesome but... Would love to have sharpening noise reduction, rotate, & full resolution photos exported to gallery. I dont use lightroom desktop except if i need to do previosly mentioned. Would love to see copy settings added like on ios. I want option to use as stand alone or in conjunction with desktop. When we get that I'll give 5 stars. Keep it up and give us premiere clip now ;)

Nelson Bello

Does not work on my LG G3 At times it won't get passed the splash screen and when it does it will crash on random events such as creating/loading a library or making an edit. I haven't been able to use it for literally more than a minute. When it does crash, the app doesn't even prompt to send a crash report. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, still the same problem. Shame I was really looking forward to this whole cloud business.

Isaiah Schultz

Edits still saved in lower resolution. EXIF data still not saved at all. Even after today's update, IMAGES ARE NOT SAVED AT THEIR ORIGINAL RESOLUTION. This is utterly unacceptable. I love the processing abilities of Lightroom, but the degradation in resolution after saving an edit is one of the biggest (and most sneaky) deal-breakers in the world of digital photography. My digital camera can transfer photos to my phone instantly as I take them. I love making edits in the field and uploading the product before I ever get back in my car to drive home. But using mobile Lightroom just destroys the resolution (and therefore the detail) of my photos. WHY DO YOU DO THIS??? Let ME worry managing my phone's storage--don't worry about it for me. Respect my photography and maintain 1:1 resolution after saving edits. On a much less significant (but still annoying) note, Lightroom mobile also blows away any EXIF data that exists on the original photo. Fix this, and then I'll give you the 5-star review you deserve. Until then, this app is utterly useless to me. Also, I am a paying customer of your "Creative Cloud" subscription, so it's not like I'm just expecting to get everything for free. Being I am giving you my hard-earned money, I expect to get what I pay for.

Henry Gonzalez

Finally 5 stars... well 4.5... ...because I can't say it's perfect yet. But this app has come so far from the first review I wrote for it. The latest update with tablet support makes this a real game-changer, as I can now take full advantage of Lightroom Mobile (still don't know what possessed Adobe to release on phones first instead of tablets). I will be integrating this into my workflow as soon as possible. I love the convenience of culling the photos from a given shoot from the comfort of wherever the heck I want to be. That along with the ability to make simple edits will be of great value to me going forward. There are too many people on here that want this to be on par with the desktop version, but it is what it is- a mobile version that gives you some of the core functionality of the desktop version. At the end of the day, I am going to continue to store my images , and make the majority of the edits on a desktop machine so I am realistic about what this app is meant to do. Way to go Adobe! Just one more thing would earn that other half star from me- Become a ColorTrue partner with X-Rite. so that I can have a nice set of color-corrected images on my tablet.


I 2nd the "Nearly Pointless" opinion This is a half baked app missing many of the features that should allow it wear the name "Lightroom"...This should be the perfect mobile companion for traveler that needs/wants to be lightweight with only a smartphone of tablet. On basic level, LR Mobile should function more like the desktop app including ability to connect my camera/card to my mobile device and IMPORT files while excluding already imported files... On more advanced level, function already mentioned by others should also be present.

Un Lo

Update made it worse Uninstalled - and reinstalled. still doesn't show previous collection before update. Had more than 8 photos in collection. None exist anymore. (the edited copies) the originals are still on my Internal Storage. I can now access Storage which is a bonus. Hopefully future updates don't bork my collections again. Unfortunately as excited as I was to actually start using the app again... edits aren't saving. When I choose save to gallery I see the rendering animation and then the image it saves in Adobe Lightroom folder is the Original image without any of my edits... very frustrating. The third try saving an edited photo finally worked correctly. IDK what is going on with this app. but it seems to have taken a step or two backwards

Francisco Arraiza

Nice to edit, very poor export Unable to export a whole set of photos. When I attempt to my entire album is just the first image. If I try to export one by one I need to wait around 1 minute between each photo otherwise it will again continue to export the previous image. Exporting 20 images can take 30mins. Love the editing capabilities but if you can export your photos to use its pointless. Also don't like the fact you can't export without a data connection. Had issues with this travelling and wanting to share photos with people I met

Chris Anthony Hamilton

Adobe does it again! The Adobe Lightroom Android app boasts the lion's share of the editing tools from the desktop version's Develop module giving you the basics to make creative adjustments to your images. It lacks the more advanced tools that can be found in other mobile photo editing apps, but the real gem is the ability to sync your photo collections and adjustments across platforms automatically. Hopefully future versions will see more editing tools and the ability to copy and paste adjustments to multiple images.

Simon Butcher

No Tablet Support? Why can I install this on my Xperia 2 and not my Galaxy Note 10.1 Pro? Out of the two devices I know which I'd prefer to be working on images on and it isn't the one with a measly four inch screen..EDIT re: developer comment - why would I, none of those points address my grievance?

Benjamin Kappel Schmidt

Good first version Stutter in scrolling, both in photo album browser and editing tools. The LR button should instead be a slide-out menu. Also, the obvious: a tablet version is sorely needed. Five stars when scrolling is eliminated and tablet support is fixed. HTC One M7. EDIT: Stuttering is now eliminated and tablet support is here. The LR button should still be replaced by a slide-out menu to match Android design guidelines but I'll give 5* now anyway.

Brad Shimmin

Nexus 5 yes and now Nexus 9! I've been waiting so long for this...glad it's finally here and happily humming along on my Nexus 5, 6, and now...finally 9.

Dmitry Shiryaev

Forgets credentials Does not remembers login and password. Rare app where I need to enter credentials very often.

Алмаз М

How to buy this program after trial days left? Good. How to buy this program after trial days left?

Alexander Kashkarov

Sync Very slow collection sync, unusable. Deleting.

Lindsey Gerner

If you need to cull alot of pics, this is perfect I'm reading the reviews and believe some may be a bit spoiled. As a small business owner having to cull 24 weddings last year and 302 family, children, newborn, engagment pics, senior, and family pics--this has been EXACTLY what I needed. I have IPad and galaxy s6. I import my images on my computer, back them up, and sync them all, and move the gallery to the mobile collection. I can sit in bed, in a waiting line, and NOT in front of the computer to cull. I'd only edit on 27"screen, nothing smaller.

Ben Sumner

Close, but nope. Would be great but it limits your export to a small jpg with no control of the compression. It looks like a 75% quality jpg! Definitely not getting CC subscription for this once my trial is up. So close but they missed the mark in functionality and pricing structure. This should be a single time purchase. :(

supercars rv

Problems loading images It's a great editing app but the only thing is that quite a few of my photos I have edited won't save or even load full resolution and cannot let me re-edit the picture. Please help if you have a solution. Phone- galaxy s5

Ryan Monroe

Would love to have sharpening, noise reduction & rotate. Would love to see copy settings added like on ios long tap. When we get that I'll give 5 stars. Keep it up and give us premiere clip now ;)

Bauyrzhan Kikanov

Good for basic retouching on the go, syncing Problems. This is great app on the go. Sometimes I take hundreds of pictures, then from my desktop sync to mobile and get rid of bad ones from my mobile devices. On iPads it syncs fine. However I had to reinstall the app on my Android devices, because it doesn't sync. App is for basic editing or retouching. Would be great to have other options, but I understand it's for mobile devices.

Corion Sowobi-Sanchez

No comparison it's amazing Best adobe mobile device editor I use CS6 suite so I can tell you it's amazing

Ellie Hernandez

Unexpected close. After I select photos a message box automatically pops up and says Lightroom unexpectedly closed. Please fix this.

Ben Thompson

Feature rich once you learn its quirks Something about the editing controls takes a little getting used to. Changes are applied immediately but can be undone. The filters take the most getting used to as the interaction with them is wonky. Really nice inclusion of a histogram that also incorporates color channels. Key thing that messed me up early on was disabling cloud sync but I didn't realize I needed to also turn on offline editing. This meant that when I made a collection locally, it never saved my changes. Toggling offline mode solved it. Lightroom is intended to be used in conjunction with the desktop app; saving your photos to Adobe's cloud and letting you work seamlessly across devices. Means you need at the very least, a $10 monthly subscription. If saving to a cloud for sharing and editing suits your style then the price could be worth it. On the surface, this is exactly what I want. Unfortunately, sharing photos to any other service (from the mobile app) automatically uses very aggressive compression. My 4.5 MB photo gets reduced to 298 KB. That's a deal breaker. Let me export at original size, without compression, and I'd pay the $10 a month.

Chris Christidis

Adobe wake up, please Who really wants to make critical changes on settings of his photos on an Android device ? The most obvious reason to have a mobile app is to be able to add keywords and titles and captions and updating them on the way. This is a disgrace for lightroom productivity and workflow

Bethany Vega

Great but buggy The only reason this isnt a 5 star review is because I've been having a lot of bugging, particularly when syncing changes to and saving photos to my gallery. They show up in the LR folder in my gallery as a copy of the original picture, sans changes. I've found workarounds but its a pain. LR is my go-to editing program on Windows. With presets and user-friendly settings I can quickly edit masses of photos, and Adobe has successfully recreated this feeling of ease and control to mobile. Awesome!

Ruslan Ibragimov

Can use without creating account Just want see some demo in action, but need create account for it! 0 points from 5

Rob Haney

Not working on my LG G4 Everytime the app starts up it gives me a "missing files in storage. Resync to a location..." error. Didn't use to do this. Hope you can fix it soon.

Paul Teale

Poor UI Really poor app for editing photos. I got it for raw photos but it hasn't found the raw photos and I can't see anyway to add them. It appears that the only feature is sync?

Bruce Mackay

Won't open Opening screen starts with light room text and graphics all mangled into one. Can scroll through three picture in programming and do no more. Disappointed as I really like lightroom

Berton Chang

It's good for editing away from the desk BUT syncing problems I like editing away from a computer and away from a desk. Tablets and the phone are perfect substitutes and this isn't too bad. I've experienced my first serious headache of an incomplete sync so I'm reinstalling it to see what happens. I can't depend on color but I think it's a good editing tool. Syncing problems are still persistent. Please fix!!!!!

Antony Stanley-Clarke

Mediocre I am running Lr on a Galaxy Alpha. I don't know how other devices fair but the processing time of the editing is just too long for this app to be any fun to use. It's just too time consuming. Also, it has failed, 100% of the time, to upload to Google Photos. Synching time is also painfully slow. It's quicker to download to my PC and edit in the full version of Lr. Thanks, but this is a no go for now.

alwaleed alfuzaia

Lag while zoom in/out Using galaxy tap s 10.5 model t805 but there are (lag) while zoomin the picture throgh lightroom

Chris Tomalty

Mobile Workflow? Maybe Someday I was really excited when this was released for Android tablets - I'm traveling and I don't want to bring a laptop to edit all my photos. Unfortunately, this app doesn't support my Canon's RAW format, which Lightroom 5/CC does. Unfortunately, it doesn't do me any good. Also, it would be great if they added USB OTG support so it could import from an external card reader.

Kjell Ruben Strøm

Could be... Would be nice if synced between devices and if I didn't have to log in every time I opened the app.

Bank Bigbox

Getting better UPDATE: Now with the 1.1 version, everything seems good & sound. Thanks for making it better.

Bob Schulte

Why the Login? This is the only app I have on my phone that has to "sign in" before I use it. Too bad the app won't sign in and hasn't for days. I guess if you're going to add needless layers of BS to an app like a sign-in then make sure it works. Can't give an app I can't use a good review.

Johnnie Gray

Almost no functionality I thought this would be good for sorting images with color tags and applying presets - possibly adjusting the exposure and white balance quickly. You can't apply color tags, you can't apply any custom presets. Changing white balance and exposure is fiddly. The whole thing feels really crippled in comparison to what it could be.

Tony Naseth

Nice controls but then this Lossless quality editing is not a thing with this app. And my phone gets overheated while running this app

Daryll Swer

High Quality images turns into Low Quality The app downscales the saved images, how about saving images in their ORIGINAL resolution? And perhaps the ability to save in both PNG and JPG format?

Ákos Muráti

Trialware Most photo editing apps provide the same functionality for free. Typical Adobe honeypot.

Brian Z

Trial App & Cloud-based - Not Free This app appears to not be free as stated, but only a trial app that is also cloud based & would require a paid subscription to continue using. Further, it's only an incomplete solution to photo editing, as many editing controls are lacking or missing entirely (eg, resize, sharpen, etc, etc). Not even worth trying IMO. Who wants to log in, consume more data & pay for the hassle of doing so? Will be deleting this.

David Farquhar

Pretty good, but not perfect Great to see tablet version here, I just wish that by default it downloaded images large enough to display on the full tablet screen. Seems to require an extra step on collections to download the full image for editing, even if I only want it to view on the screen. Other than that it is good, great to have easy access to my LR images on the move, the editing is basic but I'm using a simple tablet rather than a laptop / desktop so that is to be expected. Update- now I have quite a few photos on it, it takes several minutes to open and beready to use as it seems to recheck each image. It opens but every album shows 0 images and slowly changes to the right number. Then when you go into an album it takes an age to show the thumbnails. Once up and running it is ok

David Stewart

Really? Just when you think it's safe to trust Adobe, they dump another lame product onto Android. By default, it halves the original image size on Note 4. No choice. No option. And Adobe wants serious users to accept this? RUBBISH! Nice try, but cut the crap. Want a following by serious users? Get serious about product QA and delivery. It really is that simple.

jacob moran

Would buy but not subscribe Would not subscribe shame it could of been better. Low quality exports .

Ernesto Cardenas

Never launchs the app I uninstalled and installed again, always get the message "light room android unexpectedly quit" never been able to launch the app on Samsung galaxy tab, fix soon

soccer cat

The app is okay. But it's certainly not worth the cost of a Creative Cloud subscription.

brendan barrett

Absolute worst Can't open images, spend time editing only to have the app save unedited version, then I try to open that photo again and it won't open it or let me edit. I got this for a holiday, and to be honest it really messed me up. Put in several service request not one have been answered. Absolutely Terrible. Tried uninstall, phone /tablet up to date. Nothing works. Lost a lot of photos thanks to this POS

Benjamin Kramer

Failure Interface has issues, can't import Nikon .nef files for unspecified reason, config options are pathetic. Shame on you, Adobe.

Swami Nathan

Even if it is the worst photo you have taken ....this app would make it...Ozm!!!

Yogeshwar Mishra

Do not install It did not brings new Adobe again disappointed not works good feature less app if anybody wants a professional photo editor it is not for them, Snapseed again no 1

Oskari Oksanen

Deceiving Despite the Play store saying the app is free the app requires you to pay roughly 13€/month, though the first one is free. I didn't get to edit to actually try the app despite signing up as I was also required (?) to have Lightroom installed to my PC. Highly inconvenient when all you want to do is edit images locally.

Burge Reviews

Kills photo resolution Spend all this time editing my 13 megabyte image 4000 by 6000 and you turn it into 178kb grainy image is this a joke? Seriously. Pixlr express doesn't do that to my images. Why do you. MAKE IT SO IT DOES NOT DO THAT

Ian Cooper

Terrible The UI is completely unintuitive, but worst of all it will only allow me to import from just one folder in my gallery. What the hell Adobe?! I haven't got time to have patience with this... uninstalled!

Jonathan Isaac

Great editing capabilities... If you want to convert to dng The app's editing interface is exactly as bad as people say it is in other reviews, but it does produce good edits if you can get around the interface. The real problem is that it doesn't support .cr2 files at all, which is IMO the point of having the app. Converting to DNG is a painful, slow process, and then Lightroom doesn't save them as full-resolution JPEGs. I don't know why anyone would want to downres their raw files. The app does run quite well on my 2011 tablet, which is impressive.

Dan C

Should be more intuitive It is nice that this app is finally free but the interface is not as yet friendly as Snapseed. Take some getting used to the workflow.

android pda

As a photographer the worst part of my job is culling photos. I take tons of photos and then I have to select which to keep. With LR mobile its the simplest thing!! Share the gig as a collection, sync it to my 12" Android tablet then choose "Offline editing" then I can swipe up/down to reject/pick photos when I have some downtime. It syncs back to my desktop and I'm done I can go ahead and edit the picks. I have a "Pro" 12" Samsung tablet and it works really great. I tried it on other "cheaper" tablets and it was a bit slow but it was due to the hardware. I love this app! it makes things so much easier for me. Peace

Gerald Wilson

Constantly Crashes. Won't Load Pictures What's the point? I've tried to load a picture so I can try this out. I select a picture but it won't Load. There is no menu item to load the picture. But, perhaps that makes no difference because the app simply crashes anyway. I've wasted about an hour on this app. Maybe you'll have better luck.

Craig Shields

Uploads photos to cloud by default! Highly annoyed that this app uploads to cloud by default when you login with Adobe ID. Set my phone gotten after logging in, returned to my phone hours later to find it was baking hot. Used all my bandwidth to upload photos I only wanted locally. As a seasoned Lightroom user this ticked me off enough I immediately uninstalled. Fail, Adobe. Back to F-Stop Gallery for me!

hendra baumann

Its great but can you fix the crash problem while processing the images? I've imported 200images for process and crashed at least 10-20 times during the process. Also when entering new image there is a short lag 5-10sec every image before i can tweak the image around. please fix this too.. and... why can I save to gallery 15 images max.. this is so inconvinent.. I will give 10star when these are fix :)

Andrew Moses

Run out of space I have around 1000 pics. After importing pics into phone's lr catalog run out of space. Why there is no option to keep everything on sd card or move all stuff there. Cannot remove separate images from the catalog. *****************Added later to reply to the comment from Adobe - I have Sony Z2 with 16Gb. After importing 720 pictures LR catalog size became 3.4 GB while pictures folder was 2.2 Gb. On my PC I have ~25.000 of pics and catalog size is 1gb

Martin Samuelson

Great mobile solution Innovative UI and the most important bits from Lightroom makes a solid app for tinkering on the phone. Interface takes getting used to but is quite clever when you start using it as a tool.

Gavin McGregor

I want to love it!...But I can't. When it works. It is great. Most of the time it refuses to import an image. Even when it says it has hasn't. Sick of reinstalling it to get it to work!

James Meikle

Needs "delete from phone" function For editing it produces great results, but as an image organizer it's a let down. I'd like to be able to auto add then use Lightroom to delete the images I don't want from my phone. If LR had this functionality it would be the only gallery/editing app I'd need.

Gaming Popcorn

Only available in usa It's so unfair I cant get it cause it's only available in usa :(

Daniel Aguerrevere

Unintuitive and can't read NEF I thought this might have made photo developing possible on the tablet. However it was very disappointing. Can't read NEF files downloaded from the camera. Workflow is unnecessarily complicated with collections and having to add photos into those.

M Jasz

Ok It only lets me add pictures from one folder on my phone, the google hangouts folder, which is worthless. I would have to send every photo i want to edit to someone. It also doesn't even add the photo shown in the thumbnail. POS

Azure FlameLion

What a waste of this apps effort The image meta data are always show false info when export image to gallery It is powerful photos editor but what make it really waste is that the jpeg files are get compress in much low resolution files! What a waste quality of an apps and image files it have really nice noise reduction

Nick Torraca

Useless I really don't have the patience to learn how to use this. It's not intuitive. It doesn't help that it freezes all the time so I am never quite sure if I don't know how to use it or if it's just not working. I love the desktop version, but this feels nothing like it.

Nate Whinnery

How does it work? Can't get it to access a single photo on my device, even with SD access checked. I've been a light room user for years, but this is an unacceptable experience right off the bat.

Owen Hodda

Shoddy UI and keeps logging me out Has potential, but UI is pretty clunky, and worst thing is app keeps logging me out which breaks any offline syncing and makes the app pretty useless. Not ok considering the cost of a subscription

Dominic Parkhurst

Material design Horrible UI and frustrating. Difficult to use. Poor. In short, not suitable even for basic editing. Overcomplicated the steps to get there. Loading photos is sluggish. Devs try to experiment which is good but this app follows no design language (looks like ios app) really bad from Adobe.

Joseph Lee

Nice edits but has many issues, frustrating! It creates great photo edits and is very easy to use. The down side is that when you save to gallery it doesn't export the edits half the time. It also reduces the image size once saved. It doesn't keep the meta data or file names. No where near lightroom capabilities on desktop. It's too bad because the edits are great.

Damian Kuciński

THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHY APP This is the best photography editing app for mobile devices so far. It has most of 'big lightroom' features like filters, curves or basics like brightness or saturation. It works fast, is well designed and does what it should in the Best way. Must have for eveybody interested in photography in general.

Bardia Ghajari

Why is the UI so terrible? I mean it really takes skill to make it this bad... I can't add a photo out of the box without tinkering. I'm not going to even bother to learn how too. Adobe you have great image processing functions but why do you think Instagram is so popular. you really really don't know how to make an app.... Never understood why I have too add the photo to edit it. why not just double click and start adjusting... Both pc and mobile.. SIgh

Brandan Christopher

Good app when it works App is great. Good options for lightly touching up pictures, but you can edit specific regions of pictures and the app crashes A LOT and you lose what you've accomplished. Definitely frustrating considering how basic and user friendly the UI is.

Tim Malone

Buggy and annoying This is not ready to be released. It's slow, even on a high end phone. They decided to implement their own scrolling method, which is much slower than every other Android app. Adobe also decided to require you to login to use the stupid thing, which is fine except their servers always fail to respond. Also, why do I get logged out every time the app is updated? Even the features are kinda crappy. Noise reduction is only available as a preset, so you have little control over it. It's just a mess of an app.

Seattle Rex

Adobe, Freemium Will Not Save You So you stuck a finger in the air and went freemium. Good old corporate creativity. Alright, but ... Sharpening/noise reduction has been broken for over a year. OVER A YEAR!!! It's been broken since you relased it. WTF??? This is insane!!! I mean, it was a good first effort, but it's stayed a first effort for a year now. Come on, guys, you're Adobe, the bugs are amateur. The devs are clearly spending too much time having nerf gun fights and playing with their dogs. They have way too much PTO. They aren't even trying any more. On the bright side, if these are the best developers you can get, at least my job seems secure. Seriously, I could have done more by myself in a week than the whole team seems to have pulled off in a year. You should be humiliated that this is the case. You just can't realease broken products all the time. The public is turning on you, and for good reason. The bugs have gotten out of control, and are never, ever fixed. Seriously, wtf?

Andrew Minarik

Lets start with the good. Its phenomenal. The editing is SO good. I use many photo editing apps on my phone (Snapseed, VSCO, Polarr) and this one wins with quality after export/processing, editing abilities, and RAW support. absolutely awesome. Seriously, just for that, its worth 5 stars The reason i gave it only 3: -UI is a little clunky / glitchy. I've had it freeze up on me a couple of times -Currently, it seems the only way to get photos into the app is through actual files on your phone. I would love to see the ability to take pictures in my say google drive or dropbox -Presets. NEED this option. Would be so great to be able to copy the settings i have on a photo as a preset to save forever and not just be able to copy it if the photo is in my library -a heal/brush tool would be awesome...snapseed has one that is decent. Thats more wishful thinking

Denis Bazhinov

Missing features? Why is there no noise remove/add? Phone cameras *need* the noise removal feature. Crashed on me while cropping first photo edit. :/ Can't be a good sign.. looking forward to updates! But without noise/colornoise treatment I won't care to use this... Also! Needs to ask what size to save the image as, or at least save it at full resolution! (Hugely important, won't use unless full res.) Needs settings menu for sd card directory.

Leo Ole

Terrible. I don't need Creative Cloud! Recently, I purchased the full version of Lightroom 6 for $149. I do love the software and do use it. As such I am disappointed that the FULL use of Lightroom Mobile is not included with the software purchase. I do not need the entire suite of Adobe products. I see Adobe's push to CC as a shameless money grab. I cannot rate this app positively if all I am entitled to is the free 30-day trial before being pushed to switch to a Creative Cloud subscription.

Jos van Riswick

Why import photos Why do i have to import photos first one at a time. Too inconvenient. The actual functionality is nice but similar to many more convenient apps

Paul Mckenna

For editing not photo manipulation... Very clean ui with an intuitive set up, syncing is discreet while you continue to edit photos and organisation of photo albums is nothing short of sleek. The spinners for editing exposure etc should be finely tuned, a decimal point of 100s at least and the sensitivity should reflect such a fine tool. The ability to zoom right in while adjusting is a plus and the presets are useful for quick and easy preview of results. I'd like to see the manual adjustments feature developed further. Keep up the great work.

Haria Fitri

Really good photo editing app. Easy to understand as well. But I keep having problems when I intend to save the pictures I've edited. For example, I saved pic A, and then pic B, then I checked the gallery only to find out two pics of pic A. Also the apps stated there's a problem whenever I clicked Share. What should I do?

Kim H

Not for Android Tablet This app is one of the worst I've ever used. It crashes every five minutes!! I can't edit more than 2 or 3 pictures without it crashing. It doesn't save what I've already edited so everytime it crashes I have to go back one photo to apply the edits again. Then by the time I get to the next photo or two it crashes again. Really?? It obviously isn't designed to work with an Android tablet.

tack driver

Please add full resolution exporting. This would be 5 stars if it were not for lower resolution and sharpness after I export the image, in llightroom it shows full quality but once I save the changes and export to gallery the images quality is vastly reduced, the app is a very powerful editing tool alongside Photoshop express app and for free it's superb, but the loss of fine detail is a bit of a downer, please allow it, I'd happily pay 4-6£ for that kind of powerful editing on my shield. All the best to the team. Matt.

Kevin Paul Lawrence

Great app I love that this free app let's me make fine adjustments on my phone. I feel like I'm in the future. The only drawback is when I try to save I have to save to Dropbox first or it won't save my image. But I love the results I can now get. ??

Piriya Sambandaraksa

It's OK ish, not worthy of the light room title It's OK. Adding photos want difficult though the obscure UI design can be misleading. The problem though, is the fact that this app takes on the name Lightroom while giving users a very normal control over their photo. It doesn't process raw directly off my camera, and while is does offer basic editing function, it does not give much 'control' I can't view my image's histogram, waveform or scope while editing. Pretty useless.

Kevin Kennedy

Useful in my workflow It's a great tool, I can upload my photos to my phone via wireless, and hit some quick edits on lightroom, and its all fairly seamless. One problem though is when sharing to VSCO, or flicker, my metadata doesn't transfer correctly.

manik garg

Crashes . Otherwise this software is one beast to maintain the quality edit. Love it


Adobe Control Freaks This app is great, you can do a lot with it. But just like Photoshop Express , you can't choose what folder you want to save your pic in or the name you want. Adobe wants to do that for you. You have to use their choice, you don't have a choice! Totally lame.

Ion Barbu

Reduced jpg quality Why would I want to process a raw file down to a 500kb jpg? Even even signing in, save quality options aren't available. Makes this more of a toy than a usable editor

Bob Izam

Why so much hate? It's alright First off, the UI is not unintuitive at all, especially if you've used lightroom on the desktop. But I will say that it's very slow, it takes a lot of time to edit photos and the process could definitely be more streamlined. Also, why can't people import from other folders? I can choose to import from any folder in the gallery. The app runs very smoothly and without any problems. The only fault I have is how inefficient it is editing

John Jowett

Increasingly useful complement to desktop version I like this a lot, it's useful to be able to review and work on synchronised collections. Just a bit disappointed that the camera does not work in RAW mode on my HTC One M9. The option is grayed out. The native camera app on this phone has extensive capabilities for taking DNG images.

Sumit Gupta

Good edits but crashes I was eager to use lightroom ever since I came to know about it. But now when I am using it I am facing a lot of problems... Firstly, the app crashes when I go for 'save to gallery' option and I can't get the edited image.. Secondly, I didn't find any option to add my copying name(or watermark) on the image.. These are two major ones I have faced till now.. Please help me with this...

William Perlis

Useful, not perfect Handy if one has the full desktop version of LR and can link this version. The camera doesn't work on my Nexus 7, does on the S5 but the shutter has a loud simulated click that's annoying and doesn't seem to be optional.

Aaron Morgan

Impossible to find camera feature I've searched online, I've searched the app, I've even signed up for the free trail and I can't find the camera feature for the life of me. My camera can take raw and I would love to use this app to take pictures if only I could find the camera button.

Reza Yasir Adhiguna

thumbs down too complicated, too confusing, not intuitive at all... you guys should fix the app, make it more simple for Android... it's great software in PC, but for Android, nah, i don't think so... and i can't saved or added custom presets... dissappointing... everything is fail... i don't have any idea what are you trying to prove here, guys...

rizky pahleffi

You had one job Overall it's nice, except when I'm trying to export my finished image, it didn't save it, instead it save the original unedited image, I should restart the app so it can export correctly, please fix

Rishi Kumar

Photos not saving Ok the new update is a slight improvement. But i would love to have one feature. And i think there are many who want it. A direct option to open from gallery. Like snapseed or any other editor. The current way is just time consuming and takes up space on my phone. Add the feature i stated and believe me. Ur rating will shoot up. Ok. So there is a big problem. Editors are supposed to save photos. But this doesnt. What the F. Also the exif goes down badly

Yulian Ardiansyah

Feature request Excellent raw photo editor on Android. The quality of the resulting edits is simply outstanding. Still, I would love to see the camera to utilize more features of the Android's camera 2 API, especially the ability to set manual exposure and manual ISO. Please consider to add those features in the next update, thank you.

jomar david

Great app for photography but I cant shoot raw. Im using a note edge lollipop 5.1.1 . I cant change file format. Jpeg only...

Matthew Buntyn

Great for culling images. It's nice to be able to flag picks and rejects while away from the computer. The addition of the camera is nice touch, though it is a little slow to respond. I'm confused as to why there isn't an option to delete photos taken with the in-app camera.

Timo Uimonen

Camera support Seems that Lightroom camera feature is only for phones not tablets. Why is that because it works in iPad mini. Why does Adobe ignore Android users. Why do they favor Apple?

Shir Ling S.

Output How could I save my photos in full resolution? I don't see the option for full resolution export. App always crashes while saving images. Please help. Thanks!

Ali Abbasi

Solid app, though a bit slow compared to other mobile editing platforms like Snapseed/VSCO. Also, can't use camera feature to capture RAW images in-app. Option to change is greyed out on my Oneplus One.

lambert quartey

Nice app Feels like the desktop app. I like it. It is stable on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on android 5.1.1.

Tango Ng

Fix Need to be able to remove photos in a batch. Need to add import locations so we can search anywhere in the phone or SD card for photo but not just the root.

Adam Stephenson

Camera Widget or shortcut would be helpful. Oh yes, and still frequently get logged out.

Manolo Bigliazzi

can't import.. after converting my Raw into dng I have to switch off and on again my Nexus9 to make lightroom able to detect and import them

Sergei Svarovsky

Super Love the simplicity and practicality of this app. Probably the best photo editor for a mobile device. PC version is amazing.

Denis Bazhinov

Noise remove/add, please! Also, please add a setting to select the directory for the SD card. By default my phone stores to internal memory instead of external SD card.

Kedar Deshpande

This app is very good Plz plz plz install this app. I am a user

Chris W.

Please implement canon cr2 support Isn't raw what it should do in the first place? Better rating until available....

Shai Schcolnik

Love the Lightroom camera addition It would be very helpful if Adobe created a widget for opening the camera quickly. Having to open LR and then the camera makes it a bit slow.

Mark Dell

Lightroom Mobile I love this app and the whole Adobe CC system.

Garden Troll

Deserves 5 stars even with crashes Crashes way to often but so good it's still my go to.

Andrew Beveridge

Camera does not seem to work on my Google Nexus 7. I liked the idea of LR on my phone and tablet but so far I really can't see what actual use this app might be.

Richard Dibley

Good, but some issues On Xperia z3 the app cannot use the front camera, only the rear. Also, despite setting the app to use the SD card it insists in saving images taken via the app to the phone memory. Odd, because it has no problem reading other images stored on the SD card (taken with the stock Sony camera app which does save to the SD card).

Hiro Lewis

I was a good app Before the update it was great. Now every time I try to save an image it crashes, making it pointless to even use.

Vic B

Surprised by all of the missing options I get 10x more options and control with any number of other photo apps. What is everybody raving about?

Steven Asher

Makes me wonder... This app is way solid. My issue is some layout stuff. But I'm wondering if I can transfer full DNG files from my pro camera to my phone and edit from this quite well. Why is this sooo free when the CC is $9 a month. It's not a lot I know. And you get PS as well. But it's getting to a point where I'm wondering why isn't their a premium version for buyers other than the syncing.

Dave Marsden

Crashes on z3 compact Love this app only problem when I try and use in app camera it crashes please fix and I'll give 5 stars

Chklate Boy Ejaz

Too slow Nice but not awesome

Greg Witt

Battery draining champion Used once and noticed battery down 10% in fifteen minutes. Nexus 6, Android 6.0.1.

Patrick Coble

Trial-ware Who wants to pay the folks that poisoned the internet with Flash?

Joey Jermaya

The best but it crushs I use all the time and it's so amazing but it crushs most of the time

Abi Zen

Can't save full resolution image I'm impressed with this software,, it is powerful as lightroom in PC,, but when i exported my project, i didn't get a full resolution of image.. Please choose an option of resolution to export the project.. Thanks..

David Adshade

Downgraded my original rating. App now unstable and often won't load on my Samsung S5. When it does load, it hangs when syncing and/or crashes when using the camera.

Chander Prakash Pandey

Good but not best A good app but it crashes a lot and is to sluggish needs improvement

ER FA N .l

Liquify effect and pro retouch effect needed to develop this perfectly

Jim H

Can't write to SD Marshmallow update, LG G4. Option to write to SD in settings is greyed out.

Luke Barklimore

Absolutely amazing with a phone which shoots RAW I'm very impressed by this app, however, I wish it would allow me to reduce sensor noise and used the android file explorer, rather than their own one.

Shane Toben

Nothing but problems. Constant crashes & force close issues. Can't save edited media, if you even get that far before it crashes and you lose it all. Complete and utter garbage. Uninstalled. Snapseed & others are FAR superior to this junk. Don't waste your time or device memory downloading this nonsense. -1⭐

Edward Coffey

Faults overshadow brilliant engineering. Browsing, panning zooming and applying filters/tools to photos is initially very responsive, but once you've made a couple of changes the UI frequently locks up. The UI doesn't remember which filters have been applied, and can't un-apply them. The filters confusingly consist partly of options available elsewhere, partly things only available in filters (noise reduction). Hit the back button to return to the collection browser, then tap back into the image and often you'll find your changes are missing. Go back and forth again and your changes show up. It's not clear which filters stack and which override each other - seems like Creative, Color, B&W and Camera override one another, and Detail and Effect can both be applied, but only one filter form each of those two menus. The only view that allows filtering and multi-select of images for batch processing outputs reduced-resolution images. Export damages image meta-data (a 55mm lens becomes a 550mm lens). Unhelpful and non-configurable file naming convention makes it difficult to match JPEGs to the DNGs they were generated from.

Rishi Kumar

Slight Improvement. Ok the new update is a slight improvement. But i would love to have one feature. And i think there are many who want it. A direct option to open from gallery. Like snapseed or any other editor. The current way is just time consuming and takes up space on my phone. Add the feature i stated and believe me. Ur rating will shoot up. Ok. So there is a big problem. Editors are supposed to save photos. But this doesnt. What the F. Also the exif goes down badly. Clearly an iPhone app.

tom snyder

Absolutely sucks. Unintuitive and cludgy. W T T abobe Not ready for prime time. Broken.

Ralph Malala

Photos doesn't save on SD card I am a user of Lightroom and I appreciate the camera that able to shoot raw but the problem is it doesn't save on SD card even i turn on the feature to save on SD card.

Ramon de Vera

Bug: 'Add photos' can't see some of the .dng files sometimes?!? Definitely intermittent. Please fix it, annoying because I am working with .dng mostly.

Curtis Zilar

Incredible editing app for on the go! Great app for editing on the go!! And the Adobe team is super helpful with fixing problems! I had an issue with my D7200 photos showing up on the app, and they have fixed the issue. Thanks guys! Greatly appreciated.

Yasser Mujammal

Its not bad Okay this app it's very cool app and useful but its only about the editing side not the is really poor to focus plus whole the camera side is zero but will you never find app to edit your photos as LIGHTROOM does

Yenju Wang

Trial version. Shouldn‘t be in free section. Program is great but adobe needs to be upfront with the trial info instead of hiding it in the last line.

Anil Kumar

My one of favorite app but It takes too much loading time for effects while editing even in offline mode. This is very bad. Fix it as soon as possible. For this, i'm rating this 1 star. :-(

David Finol

Slow and impractical Very slow to open an image, not very intuitive and impractical layout. I'm uninstalling it right now.

Emma-Jane Thomas

Trial Expired I reset my adobe password , it took ages to load. I had to reload lightroom to get it to connect, problem my trial expired apparently meaning I could not access anything to edit photos. Oh well C'est La Vie. It is not for me. Uninstalling quite quickly.


Good improvement in v2 High quality editing. I need an image resizing & custom compression options. Still not very stable /laggy. Filters are crappy.

Dragan Zlaticanin

Noise Add slider for noise reduction not those filters,and also for colour noise reduction. A little bit better picture processing.

Roger Reiter

Photoshop Lightroom Haven't had much of a chance to use out yet, however as I have a Photoshop Elements program that is everything I want in a ? program !

Arian's Story

Decrease resolution After editing photos with this app ut decrease the resolution of the photo. Please fix this issue. Thanks

Rudi-Dan Brandl

Good functionality with occasional crashes Overall very good functionality, the only thing bothering me are the regular crashes of the App on my Nexus6 phone (Android v6.0.1).

Lucy Borowik

It's good, when it works Crashes, crashes, crashes. Plus, it doesn't import all my gallery. For some reason, it doesn't *see* most of the photos, and all my gallery is in. jpeg. Please, pretty please fix the bugs. I promise to give it 5 stars, when I can import photos, AND it stops crashing.

Geoff Anderson

Lightroom on the go The moblie version is everybit as good as the pc based software. Only real issue is this version is actually better then whats on my pc. Would love to try it out on some raw images but the jpeg results are fantastic. Dehaze is your friend.

Mrugesh Jani

Nothing But a Problem... Crash every-time you want to save the file.. Fed up with this app.

Craig Mackay

Great app for syncing and viewing your photos but I don't expect to ever use the editing features. That is saved for on the desktop on a large calibrated monitor. Would give it 5 stars if collection sets could be synced rather than just collections. With a large catalogue the app can get quite messy. Hopefully this feature will come in an update.

bazith bazzee

GOOD but.. No Oil pait effect,no brush tool,cant change vignetting colour...we are waiting for new update

Jeroen van Wamelen

Functionality is good, UI is garbage. Snapseed is so much better.

Jose Cruz

Works like a charm. No known issues as of yet.

Andy Davies

Lightroom on z3 compact Excellent. Renders most all other photo apps obsolete. The coup d'etat. But now what?

Himanshu Madan

Simply the best The app directly does what it says it is the best photo editing app that I have ever used. Undoubtedly its just the best.

Adam Stephenson

Much better, but still no auto-upload unless app is open. Improving.

Krystof Kolumbus

Awesomeness! BUT..'s probably the best app for editing that i've ever used BUT it keeps crashing, fix it and i'll rate 5★:)

Kit Kellison

Professional control Really great to be able to tweak phone photos before I post them.

Daniel Nwosuocha

Zooming problems I can't seem to find anyway to zoom. Need help

Chuck D

Just a free trial Lame that it's not free. Other tools Can do just as good without this price tag.


Good app The app is very complete, but I'm going to uninstall because my device screen have very poor quality colors (oversaturated greenish/yellowish colors on moto x 1st gen)

Jasmine Caron

Needs watermark ability I don't post my photos with out watermark and I see no way on this app to do this. I would love this app if it had watermark ability


LOVE I really love it. now words can describe my love for this app

Mike Auer

Decent but two requests... Ability to sync Smart Collections and ability to add/modify keywords

Blue oNe

Great Great app to have if you like taking photos!

patrick jackson

Great The camera is awesome it's the best camera I've used on an Android phone. Great job.

Roji Idjor

Great Apps I love this this handy and useful apps.

Dale Hickey

Awful Has a mind of its own when saving edited images sometimes it saves sometimes not, no logical folder structure, going back to PC

Leko Fraggle

Useless...still... I have used the desktop application since 1.0. It is wonderful. This version however, is anything but. It will not work on any of my Canon raw files unless I first import them into lightroom on my computer. It does not recognize an external card or camera. Basically, it is a stripped down jpg editor. Lossy, Lossy, Lossy makes this product useless.

Daniel de Jongh

No exporting It gets stuck when I try to export a single image, tried on two different devices and getting the same result

Yulian Ardiansyah

Yay! Manual ISO & Shutter Speed added! Excellent raw photo editor on Android. The quality of the resulting edits is simply outstanding. Review Edited & Update (July 13th, 2016): Thank you very much for the update. Now there's option to set manual focus, WB, ISO and Shutter Speed. With this, the pictures from my Nexus 5 will be more amazing than ever. If only many other phone manufacturers follow suit to fully implement Camera2 API in their products, I'll be ecstatic. In my case, here's looking at you, Xiaomi. Thank you very much, Adobe!

Lee Cresswell

Almost a good editor Latest version can at last export full res photos so is now useable. Still rather painful to import and export photos. Saving grace is that edited output is excellent with a very good control over the final image. At the end of the day this is what matters. Biggest complaint is sharpening and noise reduction. There are no controls just presets which each offer a thumbnail. It takes an AGE for the thumbnails to render and until they do you can't apply the effects. Then no control. Painful!

Rakairoa Hori

Great App! I find this app very useful and easy to use for enhancing my photographs. Very convenient for sharing through via Instagram. It also has the same settings as been done from phone to desktop which is great. I recommend this app, however it pays to have great services like this.

Jim Tom Polk

Sync and Edits Being able to sync from my inexpensive android smartphones to my iPad and my iMac to access better editing tools is great. It allows me to also make the photos from my 5 mega pixels LG Rebel the best they can be. The utility of being able to import photos to one device and bring them into an editing workflow is exciting. Also the cross platform nature this app reveals means I can move between Windows, Mac and Android. Finally, the camera gives me a good camera with most all the controls I need.

tack driver

Please add full resolution exporting. Raw, tis all we ask for, an amazing tool for budding and protogs alike. Matt.

Vaughn Fernandez

Found The Best App Hi Adobe! I just came here to say thank you for this App. It fulfill everything I want for my photos. BTW the new update is super great. I hope it would be free forever. I love you.

Sugar Lampa

Great app but crashes and hangs alot! Crashes and hangs alot on my note 4

Ruben Tura

In app camera? Downloaded because of the in-app camera, which should have been updated, but there's no in-app camera. No buttons, no gesture, nothing. Just plain bullshit.

Terry Simmons

Love it... ....but I do wish the iOS version wasn't so far ahead of the Android version. Let's face it we only have DNG shooting and importing over those fruity fan boys because Apple haven't switched on RAW in camera yet!!

rahul konjengbam

Great photo editor One of the best photo editing app but i'm giving only 3 stars because i don't have the option to experience the in-app camera on my xperia t2 ultra dual.

Robert Richards

V2.1 Great improvement Much improved camera, very impressed. Still find it a little bit awkward in places ie viewing images/sharing.

Rashedun Nobi Nirzhor

Screen Dim After the latest update, when taking photos, the app automatically lowers the phone brightness. U can hardly see anything on the view finder....

Sam Geer

Basic Mobile Editing Getting there... beginning to focus on paying CC members. Needs: Local brush adjustments, synced user-defined presets, manual lens distortion correction, synced smart collections, Photoshop fix... At least iOS is getting some great upgrades.

Peter Kjær Guldbæk

The added camera widget is great! Now I can use the Lightroom as I would with the Android Camera app (= a lot more than I did before)

Sarah Nizomi

The built-in camera doesn't work on my Galaxy Note 10.1, but works perfectly on my LG G4

Allen W. Jones

Getting there.. This app has improved over time in its stability and capability but is still a bit buggy and is missing key features: Specified local storage location, and custom filenames especially for .dng’s

Juan Martinez

Can't export from gallery... Open a photo in Samsung native Gallery app and I can share (export to) Photoshop Express, but not to Lightroom ?

Mike Heaney

Adobe lightroom first class First class. Can you not make the payment for full app once off?

Adam Price

The best mobile image app The structure, editing and ease of use make this easily the best image editing app around. I love how it syncs with LR desktop.

Robert Le Blah

No camera on tablet? My Nexus 7 has 2 cameras. Why does the camera app not work on tablets?

Adam Stephenson

Fantastic! Finally a camera widget! The app is now perfect for me! Well done.

jl sc

no raw file support -still what possible good can lr be without raw support. Rediculous to even put it out. This is Adobe for crying out loud and they cant support a raw file when theres at least a dozen other apps that do.

Andreas Frangoudes

In-app camera Camera button not visible on Android N if you set the display size to small.

Michael Flint, SR

As a photo editor this good, but even with latest update 7/14/2016 the camera part is crap! I have a Samsung Note 5 with Android 6.0.1 and before the camera would crash & freeze up when using the flash. They said (that's you Adobe) that there was a issue with Android. So now they've redesigned the camera app. Guess what.... it focus like utter crap! It doesn't matter if it in Auto or Pro mode, it doesn't matter what the other settings are! If you want the pictures or a screen video capture let me know. If you can't or won't or don't know how then please remove the part of the program from the app!

Dmitry Tikhonov

Awesome app The best mobile photo touch up solution

Gavin J Cotton

Great phone photo editing Easy to use, renders excellent results. There are moments it crashes and closes the app,but it's soon up and running again. If your like to edit on the go, get this app. Take care kind regards Gav

Seattle Rex

Baffling The two most used post-processing features, sharpening and noise reduction, do not exist in the program. Inexplicable.

Pushkar Gogte

Nice app Good app but still lacking some features like multiple delete photos and option to mute shutter sound.

Ellie Kennard

Requires log in too frequently so often can't use it offline I am constantly being asked to log in, for no reason I can figure out. This makes it unusable a lot of the time when I am away from my WiFi and need it most. I love to use it to go over images that I am considering for various purposes, but if I can't get in to see them it's frustrating.


Adobe, all your apps log me out – with long password it's very annoying to log in each time. EDIT: After recent update I can't log in at all. Nexus 6p

Girish Garg

Where is pro setting In pro mode only white balance available:'(

Louis Gonzales

Great but..... Would be useful to add sharpening and denoising features to this app...

dennis barcelo

What happened? Whenever I switch to different photo resolution it is still in 4:3 size. ?

Troy Simmerson

Crashes immediately This app crashes immediately upon opening. I have a galaxy s7 and switched the storage to external SD card. As soon as I open the app it crashes. I tried resetting the phone and reinstalling with no luck. Android 6.0.1

Rafael Elorza

Images I have to subscribe to download my images now?

Henry Story

I am most interested in the professional camera feature, which is very nice, especially together with the RAW/DNG format. Sadly for the camera on my Caterpillar CAT S60 there is no good camera profile added to the DNG file, so that when trying to edit photos in LightRoom (on the desktop) one has to do a lot of manual tweaking. It would be nice if there were a way for people to exchange camera profiles, or for Adobe to provide ones. A help page in the doc on how to make ones would be useful too.

Josh C

Makes the greatest editor even greater Lightroom and photoshop are some of, if not the best photo editors on the market. Lightroom mobile allows me to share to my phone within the app and do basic adjustments on the go. And on top of it it automatically formats the mobile files for your phone and whatever social media you want to share to, which you can do right from the app to post in the highest quality possible from your phone. If you have Adobe, lightroom mobile is a must in my opinion

Not Android 7 (nougat) + nexus 5x compatible This is the best thing that ever happened to my phone. BUT: Ever since the update to Android 7 (Nougat), the dng files taken with Lightroom mobile camera are upside down in my Google photos gallery :( ALSO: in the sample images here it says seamless integration with Photoshop FIX?!? I can only find PS Mix. It's not the same thing! Some consistency here would be great...

Huge LR fan, LR mobile lacking The LR mobile app can be great when it is working properly. When shooting raw images and traveling it allows you to have access to and make minor and even some heavier adjustments to your images as long as you have internet to sync. It does crash VERY frequently on my device and lately stopped allowing me to view and edit my images. Huge potential, lots of work to make it as effective as it could be.

Stop the whining about subscriptions Adobe has done a great job moving Lightroom to the cloud. I've gotten so much more usage out of these services and I really enjoy being able to tweak my photos on mobile. I do think Adobe should allow more installation of the software on more devices, but otherwise this is great!

Danie Uthup

Wonderful! Amazing app. Very good editing app for amateurs and who edit their photos in a mobile. The main advantage is that, as in pro editing softwares, this also gives you high quality images after post production works. Like if we shoot a raw image which is of 25 mb, we'll get the edited photo of 27 to 28 mb size photo, which is absent in many photo editing apps in play store. The only drawback that I found is that it gets stuck sometimes, but hope this also will be compiled soon.

Rob Erickson

Great App. Great app for the phone. Stylus makes it better in my opinion. Layout takes some getting used to even if you are a vet LR user. It's nice to punch up pictures with. I want to be able to delete and not just remove pictures ,in app, from my phone though...unless I missed something. That and manual noise reduction.

Andres Tatter

Good, but slow workflow. Having used lightroom for years, I find the workflow on the mobile app to be very slow. I believe that just by adding swipping up/down to do adjustment and swipping left/right to switch between tools would be huge improvement. For time being I prefer to use Snapseed app for editing, if not dealing with a specific set on my pc (cloud).

Good for editing bad for storage Thanks for all the photo editing tools made available on mobile. Tools are pretty much the same as on Lr on desktop. But... app still can't be transferred to SD-card. Photos also defaults to internal storage. Please make this app great!) be happy to re-rate it

Nevil Patel

Was working great but.. When I removed the raw files from my phone, the backed up files on ur cloud are not letting me export images anymore.. but the files that are still on my phone and backed up on ur cloud, those pictures I can export easily.. why can't I export the picture from the backed up raw files without the original files present in my phone? Dont you think that's a little bit crazy? Why go through all the syncing and uploading to the cloud if you can't use those files to output photographs..

Joel O

Good, few difficulties Once you get the hang of it, it's cool what you can do go photos in terms or it's colours etc. Although, sometimes it can be slow. Also, when I finished editing certain photos, they disappeared off the app. When I tried to reupload the unedited versions, they wouldn't upload.

Angelphoenix Quaintrelle

Local adjust only in Ipad When will the button "Local Adjust" be available in Android? Also I want to add, I import my raw format photo, but when I try edit the pic, it cannot find or unable to view the files. If compared to another photo editing tool like snapseed, itbis able to see the raw format photos I have uploaded. Pls fix.

CS Chua

The app will only take one photo via bluetooth connect. Second trigger cause the app to preview the 1st photo. Third trigger will launch the volume control. And that's it. One cannot take multiple shots without manually swiping off the preview. This behavior does not occur on the stock camera app, hence it's not the bluetooth connect or triggering problem. Updated to Android Nougat. Selfie photos are all over expose. No problem with stock camera.

Tony Hailstone

Great but needs presets access Got many presets on desktop that I like to use but no apparent way of using them on mobile, this kinda makes the app pointless in those circumstances.

Abdul Syakir Kahar

Can't Add Photos I'm not sure why, but I can't seem to add certain photos from my camera folder to the app. I tried to add other photos, it is able to be added. However those particular photos from my camera cannot be added. Please help me with this problem or fix the bug. ??

Manasvi Sareen

Slow, hangs, confusing Surely a great tool, but it slow in loading slow (using snapdragon 616s 1.5ghz). Double tap at many position are confusing..does not have user preset. point curve setting is missing and sometimes it just crash (google snapseed performance should be the bench mark).

Jorge Juárez

Great app but... It's poorly integrated with Android itself. For example, it isn't possible to open a picture in your gallery and export it to the app. In addition, if you want to import a picture, you have to browse through every single folder with a picture instead of being able to configure favorite folders or something like that.

Justin Fulcher

Great mobile edit On my computer i prefer bridge but on mobile between snapshot, lightroom and vsco lightroom is defiantly one of the best editors. You cant do anything crazy but it syncs with the desktop app=better workflow

ranadeep ghosh

Useful Editing App Overall the photo editing is pretty cool, and am using it as my primary photo editor for sometime now. But there are some suggestions, it would be great, if you could work out something for the slow processing, and please please add drag drop share feature to Lightroom, so that I can directly share photos to Lightroom, straight from my gallery. Thanks.

Jessica Ray

i love the effects on this app but no matter how many times i delete it and reinstall it while im in the middle of editing my pictures it shuts off or wont let me save my pictures!! its soo aggravating and i would like for this to be fixed so i dont lose all of my pictures

Ashley Natter

Would be 5 stars.... ...But force quits after a few minutes and lags. DROPPING ANOTHER STAR: now the app force quits after 2 images. Lagging isn't an issue anymore though. Having the restart every 2 images is very frustrating.

Mr. Ever

Shutter sound is loud! I got the note7 and the shutter sound is incredibly loud! It scares animals and it's impossible to take pictures without people looking at you! Did it. That alone makes it now worth using the camera. You should fire the person that decided that the shutter sound should be on at all times!!!

Vinay Venkateshamurthy

Not working on Nexus 6P (Android 7 - Nougat) Used to work fine on Marshmallow. However since I upgraded to Android Nougat, I'm not even able to add local photos to start editing.

Beril Duygan

Don't waste your time with this app I am a professional photoshop user but i dont like this app at all. It's not user friendly and i had to uninstal some apps that i have because it was not working properly. Very poor control, not dynamic and nothing exciting. I prefer Pixlr of Autodesk. Way way better.

Captain Jack Sparrow

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 This is one of the best editing tools I have seen, especially for me, because I'm a photographer! Unfortunately the app constantly freezes up and stops working in the middle of editing and trying to save a picture! Always force closes on me! 5 stars when that issue is fixed, thanks!

Charles Buko

Your digital light studio, pocket sized Or Tablet sized, if you've got 'em. Super useful in a pinch. Almost everything you need along with the cool bells and whistles. Import/exportability could use some finessing hence the four stars.


Greatest mobile editor I've been using Lightroom for a long time with my laptop and wouldn't trade it for another application... save the mobile version, that's a great app to use with your smartphone

Prashant Patil

Good but not as powerful as desktop version There are only a few features available how9ever ther are packed neatly and easy to use. There are some serious usability misses as in (1)filters in lib to remove multiple rejected photos at once. (2)the photos in library do not show the flags and 8rating there by making the removal difficult. (3) introducing a long press right click menus on pics will also help on operations. (4)the pointer on the color/bnw layers is hard to move i cudnt move it even once. Despite all this i still love it.

Christopher Wasow

Effective but slow at times Excellent app, but a little disappointing in loading times for photo development data. Copying and pasting settings can really be a pain while you wait for this to load when switching between photos. A friend uses the app on IOS and the problem is non-existent - development data loads instantaneously. Apart from this, very good. Having this problem addressed (and getting local adjustments!!) would make this a perfect '5' photo editing companion, especially if you are familiar with LR on PC.

Daniel Schmidt

Works great with desktop Lightroom, but logs you out constantly Great app, but having to type my login data every other day on my mobile's keyboard is really a pain. What's wrong with keeping the user signed in?

Martin Glackin

Just wanted to point out... That Photoshop Fix isn't available for Android. Maybe you might want to change that screenshot? Good app though! Just waiting on full raw support for it to be my go to photo editor.

Bryan B

OnePlus 3 RAW files are messed up. Big time. Possibly due to the automatic color noise reduction that Lightroom applies by default. Please fix this.

Trevor Matthews

Been a paid Lightroom user since the beginning. I love having my sync'd catalogs on my iPhone and Samsung S2, but SERIOUSLY, no CR2 import ability on the android??? That makes it not even half as useful.

Jon Tatum

Fantastic with a rather large, but Love it, easy to use using sliders can tweak photos when they need just that little improvement. The but? Well I use a oneplus 3 which runs 6Gb of ram and on occasions while editing a picture the app freezes. I'm not sure if it's a ram/buffering problem or if it's just the app crashing but either way it's annoying when one has nearly finished tweaking the image and the only option is to shut the app down.

ศรัณย์ เจนจิรวัฒน์

RAW Supported!! I just checked it and works on Panasonic lumix RAW File(.RW2).But not on Sony RAW File(.ARW) so sad ;(

banjo Stanley

Not working for me /sync issues When wifi signal is weak, Lr mobile only syncs collection folders but not all/a few of the content images to desktop. Then when wifi improves, Lr starts up syncing again, but it doesn't carry on with syncing the new mobile photos to the desktop. Oh no, it syncs the empty collections back from the desktop to mobile and deletes the original mobile photos. Im left with empty collections on both desktop and mobile. Nice. And it freezes. I ve been onto product support 3 times and nothing changes.

Alex Leonidov

Simple, as good as desktop version Easy to use, I don't have to transfer my photos from the phone to desktop and back. Impressive results. The only thing to improve: before and after option.

Dan Butler

Perfect Workflow I travel all over the country. LR Mobile allows me to take my editing on the road without having to carry a laptop. While I do not have access to the full LR Workflow, I am able to get alot of the tedious work of managing my catalog, flagging, and basic color correction done while I am waiting in line at the airport. The only improvement suggestion I have is finding some way to make it a little more intuitive. Many of the settings are hidden beneath gestures and other menus.

Tyler Vincent

Evolution of editing Used to be tied to a computer desk for hours to accomplish my culling and basic editing tasks. Not anymore. Thank you Adobe! Only thing I wish it had was custom presets.

Kate M

Quite happy...but.... Why does it only show some photos when you open gallery? Only shows a handful. Wld happy pay for it if I had access to all photos....
