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.

Intuitive user friendly

I am revisiting adobe products since they went to a subscription base. I have never been a fan of continuous payment for subscription based tools; however, from my observations the App based plans allow for continuous improvement to the product. Each new iteration has been easily implemented and very intuitive to use. I still try to plan my shot and project in my mind what the camera image will be in the end - noting, it is always the artist or photographer’s imagination that creates thee image - PS and LR are tools - correct in camera leads to a better image when processing with these great tools.

Almost the only camera app you need

At first I only used this app to edit as that is what I knew Lightroom for, but then I discovered the built in camera & wow!!! I’ve tested many of the manual camera apps & I can honestly say that in the professional camera mode this is the best User interface of any!!! But it feels a bit hidden. The camera launch icon needs to be moved to the bottom bar (I can’t find it as it blends in with the library photos sometimes). Also when in camera mode the 3 dot menu icon at the top right needs to be moved down to the bottom left gap next to where you switch between auto & pro. Needs haptic when using iso, shutter speed, exposure etc. so I can feel when it’s snapped into place. Also a setting that allows the app to remember if I want it to open in camera mode or library/edit (Personally I want to open straight to camera everytime). I usually have less time to capture a photo when I’m outside & in a hurry to get a shot compared to when I have plenty of time to switch when I’m inside editing. I know I can use the widget but sometimes I just need to open from my dashboard. It lost 1 star for battery drain It’s soooooo power hungry it overheats my phone & causes it to dim the screen when I’m editing photos. Which makes it hard to accurately edit them. I can visibly see the battery percentage draining as I use it. Recommended to only edit if you are near a cable. Also would love if photo stitching was added to this mobile version
