My rating

To be honest this app is great. I wish it were more like photoshop where the library exists in your computer rather than on the cloud primarily. This reason Is why I drop one star from them. I have all of creative cloud and it was really hard to pay for the extended cloud resources. It took a lot of work around to only upgrade storage to a Tb rather than my membership to only one app with the storage. If adobe fixes this I would say it's worthy of 5 stars. The product works really well, and even does a little bit more than it needs to, but this is far from a bad thing.

Conclusion: It's 4 stars due to the difficulty of upgrading only my storage, and it storing the files in their cloud predominately. If they fix this, this app would be perfect.

Warning No Red Eye Removal Tool In Version 4.1

I purchased Lightroom about a month ago and I am new to using Lightroom. There is no Red Eye removal tool, this seems like a big omission for a software package oriented towards photography. I am trying to process some older photographs that were digitized and due to using the flash a lot back then, there are a lot of red eyes to remove. I was very surprised that this tools was not available since I have been using other tools for years that have this feature. It appears that Lightroom classic had this feature judging by the number of videos on the web that show how to do it. Too bad Adobe is forcing everyone to a subscription model so there is not a way to purchase the classic version. Other features are very nice. The auto setting for editing photos is good so that saves a lot of time. Also the Healing Tool is very nice for fixing dirt spots and other unwanted artifacts. I am still on the fence on whther I am going to keep this subscription so far I am very undecided on whether it is worth it for me.

Developer Response ,

Thanks very much for your feedback! Red Eye Removal is available in Lightroom version 5.4 and later.
