- Starting from Lightroom for mobile (Android) version 5.1, you can contribute photos using Lightroom for mobile (Android), in addition to Lightroom on the web, to any shared group album where you are invited as a contributor.
If you're using an earlier version of Lightroom for mobile (Android), you can contribute photos to shared group albums using the Lightroom on the web link, which is sent to you in an email invite.
- You can view and contribute photos to shared albums even if you haven't subscribed to the premium features. The album owner, however needs to have a valid trial or paid subscription for premium features to invite people to shared albums.
If the group album owner has provided contribution access to you, you can add photos to the album. To add photos, do one of the following:
- In the list of group albums, tap the icon next to the desired album and choose Add Photos.
- Tap the desired group album and then tap the Add Photos icon in the lower-right corner of the screen.
Alternatively, select photos from All Photos or another album, tap the icon in the upper-right corner of the screen, select Add To, and then select Albums shared with you.
- Alternatively, you can use the link in the email invite that you receive to view or contribute to a shared group album. Click the View album button in the body of the email to view the shared album on Lightroom on the web. If you have access to contribute (which is granted by the shared group album owner), click the Add Photos button to contribute photos.
- The photos you contribute to shared group albums can be deleted within 48 hours of adding them.
- Starting from the February 2020 release (version 5.2), you can export photos that were contributed by others in shared albums. Ensure that the album owner has provided download access to you to do this.
Starting from Lightroom mobile 4.4 (August 2019 release), you can view and add likes and comments on shared photos of a group album in the Activity panel. To access this panel, open a group album, tap the () icon in the upper-right corner, and select Activity. You can then view the likes or comments on the shared photos. If you want to post a like or comment on a shared photo:
- You can't add a watermark when you export original photo.
- Watermark doesn't sync with Lightroom across devices and Lightroom Classic.
Tap Customize. On the Customize Watermark screen, modify any of the following settings:
To position the watermark, tap any of the nine placement circles displayed around and at the center of the sample image.
- T: Tap to select a font.
- B: Tap to make the text bold.
- I: Tap to italicize the text.

- Size: Move the slider control to proportionally scale the watermark text larger or smaller.
- Offset: Move the slider to position the watermark text away from the selected placement circle.
- Opacity: Move the slider control to adjust the level of transparency of the watermark text.
While customizing the watermark, use the visualization as a guide. When you save or share a photo, the watermark adapts to the photo's dimensions. Therefore, the watermark text size may change depending on the length and width of the photo.
