Access, edit, organize, and share photos on your iPad, iPhone, or Android device. Changes sync seamlessly so they are available in your Lightroom desktop app and your Lightroom account on the web.
What you'll need
Note: Syncing to Lightroom on the desktop and the web requires a Lightroom trial or a paid Adobe Creative Cloud membership.
Create an album
Albums in Lightroom are a way to organize your photos into different groups. Open Lightroom on your mobile device and sign in with your Adobe ID. On the Library screen, tap the plus (+) to the right of the albums to create a new album. Name your new album and tap OK.
Add photos from your device
To add existing photos to an album, tap the three dots to the right of the album name and tap Add Photos. You can choose to add photos from All Photos in Lightroom, or from the Camera Roll on your mobile device. Tap individual thumbnails to select them or swipe across images to select multiple photos. Once you’ve made your selections, tap Add to import them to Lightroom and add them to the album.
Capture a photo
To take a picture with the Lightroom camera, tap the blue camera icon. The Lightroom camera defaults to Auto mode. Select Professional for more settings, such as shutter speed and white balance. Additional settings in Professional mode allow you lock/unlock auto exposure or apply a preset filter. Tap the file format icon at the top center to choose DNG if you want to capture a raw file.
Edit a photo
Tap a photo thumbnail to view it larger and make sure that Edit is selected at the top left. Swipe horizontally along the bottom menu to see the range of editing options available to you. You can crop your photo, apply a profile or a preset for a specific look, or modify settings to adjust exposure, contrast, and color.
To show your photos via social media or email, tap the share icon at the top of the screen. Then select Share to… After Lightroom prepares the image, choose the sharing options available on your device.
Access synced photos on your desktop and the web
All changes you make in Lightroom on your mobile device are reflected in Lightroom on the desktop and Lightroom on the web. Any changes you make in the desktop or web version are synced to mobile as well.
