When you’ve got a great shot, why wait? Share it on social media or use it in other apps right on your mobile device.

Note: Syncing to Lightroom CC on the desktop and the web requires a Lightroom CC trial or a paid Adobe Creative Cloud membership. See how to Set up Lightroom for sync.

Share a photo

To send your perfect photo out into the world, tap the image to open it, tap the share icon, and select the appropriate image size, then select the way you want to share your photo — by text, email, or social media.

Note: The screenshots in this tutorial show Adobe Photoshop Lightroom on an iPhone. The user interface may vary between iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.

Share multiple photos 

Sharing a group of photos is just as easy. Open a collection, tap the share icon, and select Share. Tap individual thumbnails, or swipe across them, to select multiple photos. Tap the gear icon and choose to share the photos with or without metadata. Then, tap the check mark and choose the appropriate image size before sharing your photos in a text message, email, or on social media.

Share a collection

The photos you take for a client, portfolio, or album are likely combined in a collection. Open the collection, tap the share icon, select Share Collection, then tap Share. Choose View on Web to open the collection in Lightroom on the web. Or, choose Share Link to copy a URL you can send in a text message, email, or on social media.

Save photos to your device

You may want to store your photos on your phone or tablet for later use. Open a collection and tap the share icon. Choose Save to Camera Roll and select one or more images. Tap the check mark, and choose the appropriate image size. The selected photos automatically save to your device.

Open a photo in another app

When you want to edit a photo on your mobile device, you can easily send it to another app. Open a collection and tap the share icon. Select Open In, or Edit In, and tap to select an image. Then, tap the check mark and choose the appropriate image size before selecting one of the available apps on your phone such as Photoshop Fix, Photoshop Mix, VSCO, or Instagram.

Access your synced photos on your desktop and the web

With a Creative Cloud Photography plan subscription, or a trial, you get access to Lightroom CC for your desktop. Install Lightroom on all of your devices to see your synced photos and edits from anywhere.
