Never Lets Me Down

I replaced Lightroom desktop with the mobile version a long time ago and I never looked back. I found love for the app when lockdown had lifted and I never wanted to go back home. I would spend countless hours travelling, just me, my dog, my camera and my iPad. I would travel across the UK to find landscapes to photograph. I would spend nights under the stars. Climb incredible mountains and meet wonderful people, all the while, documenting everything with my camera.

After I was done with my latest shoot, I would retreat back to my car and stop off somewhere to grab a coffee and some food while editing the images I had just taken. The mobile version gives you incredible freedom to keep you hobby cost low and the results high.

Latest update has caused some big issues!

I have always loved this app. It’s incredibly powerful and I’ve always used it as part of my photography editing workflow, however… I’ve just updated it and it has caused some serious issues! Firstly, the whole app just feels slower & more laggy. It takes longer to upload photos to the app and A LOT longer to render and save images. Previously a render & save for a large dimension 100% quality jpeg would take less than 10 seconds and that’s with numerous masks added and adjustments made across the board. Now it takes just over 5 minutes to do the same! I tried it a few times and the same thing every time! 5 minutes for a single photo is crazy, especially when it used to be lovely & quick. Secondly, the new blur feature just crashes the app. As soon as I touch the blur function the whole up freezes and I have no option to force close the app & reopen. This isn’t a huge issue for me as I probably won’t use it much but still needs to be resolved. Lastly, I’m not a fan of the new layout, but that’s my personal opinion and probably something I’ll get used to. I hope these issues are fixed quickly, especially the speed issue, because that could be a deal breaker for me and I’ll have no choice but to use another app.

Let down by common sense.

There needs to be a thorough rethink in lots of areas of this app. For a start don’t advertise a new feature (lightroom now added to shortcuts) if it doesn’t work! I’ve tried to make a shortcut on both my iPhone and my iPad Pro; each time greeted with: ‘could not run import to Lightroom. An unknown error occurred’.
I use shortcuts regularly so I’m confident in my own handling of it.
Another thing which boggles my mind out of all sense is inability to export DNG to a lossless format from the app. If I want a png or tiff I have to do it on my desktop and airdrop it to my iPad. It’s totally retarded. This needs to change entirely before photoshop is released (if ever) as NO ONE will be prepared to spend hours editing a lossy jpg on their iPad photoshop when they could be doing lossless on desktop.
If I had to characterise the faults of Adobe with one sentence it would have to be: too slow to adapt. You need to seriously realise people are moving to mobile platforms; my 2018 iPad Pro has power that is going wasted because companies like this are dragging their heels and maintaining a desktop only environment.
I hope when photoshop is released these issues have been resolved, I hope this won’t be a token app with no thought behind it, after all affinity photo is pretty much perfect right now, so adobe won’t be able to coast on this.

We're sorry you've experienced trouble with the shortcut. At this time, we're not able to reproduce the issue so it'd be great if you could reach out to our support team so we can try to troubleshoot. Drop us a line at

We are working on adding in more export options, including lossless export in a coming release.

We do appreciate the feedback and are constantly at work to make the app better and better. /jh
