The cloud-based service for people who love photography, Lightroom gives you everything you need to edit, organize, store, and share your photos across desktop, mobile, and web.

Create incredible photos anywhere with Lightroom and 1TB of cloud storage. The app offers powerful photo editing features in an easy-to-use interface. Adjust your full-resolution shots and have both your originals and edits backed up to the cloud. Organize with searchable keywords that are automatically applied without the hassle of tagging. And easily share and showcase your photos in fun ways.

Anywhere editing:

With easy-to-use photo editing tools like sliders and filters, Lightroom makes it simple to create photos that look just the way you want. And you can edit your full-resolution photos anywhere — on mobile devices, the web, or your desktop. Edits on one device are automatically applied everywhere else.

Smarter organization:

Adobe Sensei uses machine learning to recognize the people and other content in your photos and then applies searchable keywords automatically. Looking for shots of your cousin or favorite trips to the water? Auto-tagging makes searching a snap so you can create albums based on any person or theme you want.

The 1TBG of cloud storage included with Lightroom ensures that you can access your entire library of full-resolution photos anytime you want, anywhere you are, from any device.

Great but missing crucial part ,

Great but missing crucial part

Let me start by saying i am new to photography editing. With that out of the way, i found this app to be very user friendly, and in just two days i feel very comfortable navigating and being able to do basic photo edits. There are however some misteps that NEED to be adjusted by developer. The lack of ability to add a watermark/logo to the picture is an upset, this CAN be done in Lightroom classic and oddly enough on the mobile app (which this app is used on multiple platforms). There are other options in the drop down menus that are greyed out like “send to photoshop”, there is some cleaning up that needs to be done.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback, Watermarking is a feature we would like to add to a future version. /rf

its okay, doesnt have certain things i need

im new to photography and wanted to get a professional application to help me improve my photos. ive had fun messing around with lighting and what not, but what i really want is to be able to layer or stack my photos, so i can get creative and make some abstract, and strange edits. i figured since this is a popular application that it would have pretty much everything you need to be ceativly expressive through your photos and edits. But now that i needed to look it up how to do it with this app and ask questions it turns out this app doesnt have that, and infact seems to just have basic editing applications such as contrast and color and cropping.
So if youre someone who needs an app for just fixing color and contrast, then this is for you. but if you are trying to get creative and blend photos together, then i reccomend using a different app. i have to cancel this subscription because i didnt do enough research when i bought this, im gonna be finding another app that can allow me to do what id like with my photos.

Adobe customer service is TRASH

Warning to anyone looking to use the desktop version and start their 7 day trial. Customer service is TRASH. And I'm not just writing this because im angry but because I read reviews saying this and experienced the exact same thing. Tried to cancel my account and it took over an hour to complete the process. After 30 minutes of waiting on the phone to talk with no notification of what to do next. then spent the next 30 minutes of going back and forth with the chat customer service rep trying to get my account canceled because they kept trying to upsale me... WHILE I WAS EXPRESSING HOW DISAPPOINTED I WAS IN THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE. No acknowledgement of my dissatisfaction and completely wasted my time when I could have been doing other things. Like work. They eventually refunded my money and also canceled my account but it was terribly difficult to do. Hopefully this helps someone to avoid the same trouble I did. If you cancel, MAKE SURE YOU GET A CONFIRMATION!!! Because they will continue to charge you like they did me. Which was the reason I wanted to cancel.
