Ratings and Reviews
What more could you want?
The only Adobe product I use. Lightroom combined with 1tb or more of cloud storage is so good. Having access to my whole photo library dating back to 2000 on all my devices is just amazing. And with the editing capabilities LR has to offer, I could for example be sitting on bus editing a photo I took back in 2006 on my phone.
Most impressive of all is the search capability. I remember on one occasion when my son was 3, I was telling him about the papaya tree we used to have in the back yard. A quick search for ‘papaya tree’ in Lightroom, and within a few seconds all the photos I took of that tree years earlier were there for my son to see. No having to worry about tagging photos or scrolling through thousands of photos to find what you’re after.
I have just one major complaint. I have all my photos segmented into months. Now if I open a month’s worth 400 photos and scroll down through them, then minimise that month, instead of going back to that same month as it should, the scroll position will be on whatever month is the same distance down the page as the 400 photos I had open. For example, if open the month of January 2020 where I have 506 photos and scroll to the bottom of all 506. When I minimise those photos the scroll position will then be at December 2017. So I either have to scroll back to the top of that month’s photos before I minimise, or scroll all the way back there anyway. It’s very annoying! Please fix this Adobe.
LOVE IT (but)
Not going to pretend I don’t LIVE in Lr and love it endlessly... the new version is wonderful (omg – VERSIONS – life-changing), but please please please make it faster to be able to edit newly imported photos!!! I used to be able to send a photo from my camera roll to Lr, then open Lr app on my phone, chuck a preset on it almost immediately / after a few seconds of loading, export the finished photo and be on my way. Now I have to wait 20 years+++ for the photo (preview? backup? original?) to load. Please fix and then it will be perfect :)

Great program but has it’s issues
Started to use this to manage my photos, edit them and share across all of my devices.
I have to say although it is pretty easy in many ways there are some things that aren’t particularly intuitive or even seem dumb.
Having to manually tell Lightroom to update the view of a folder to show images you have just exported to it is IMHO stupid - I am sure there is some great excuse related to syncing etc. but come on it is just cumbersome.
I have also mistakenly added stars to every image, somehow, which has basically wiped on the ratings I had painstakingly added. (Should the program not ask if your sure?)
Also lost lots of metadata because you have to manually tell lightroom to save all changes to the file. Ahhh
You get used to it, but I have to say, if there was a comparable program without these flaws (awesome photographer control) I would probably jump.
Also issues with smart folders (shared across devices) keeping up to date with the folders they are based on. Stupid system
Anyway, the program is awesome in many ways for being able to apply edits across many photos etc.
