15 Photo Export Max? What the...
I downloaded Lightroom mobile as I’m really wanting to move away from desktop and laptop editing, and LR Mobile seemed promising. I LOVE the UI and functionality of this app, and can do about 95% of the work I need to right from my iPad Pro, and I was actually a bit blown away by its speed and capabilities.
Then I went to export about 100 photos I had taken with my Panasonic G9 and edited in Lightroom Mobile. I thought the iPad was glitching, or I had toggled a setting that I didn’t know about, because I wasn’t able to export more than 15 photos at a time. After doing a bit of digging I’ve found that this is done on purpose. The reason being that Lightroom isn’t able to render in the background, but that doesn’t make any sense as I’m sure we’re all more than willing to leave the app open and running in the foreground until the export is complete. This is a preposterous number of images to export at one time. Give us at least 100 images, as we could work with that limitation; but only 15? That quite literally renders this entire app, and all the hard work these developers put into it, totally useless. A 5 star app turned to a 1 star app due to a major oversight.
I’ll most likely be looking for ways of leaving Adobe after about 15 years of exclusively using their products, if they don’t get their $#!+ together asap. FIX THIS RIDICULOUS LIMITATION ADOBE, PLEASE!
Thanks for the feedback. We'd love to better understand your workflow to understand how we can improve this experience. If you're open to it, please email us at LrMobile@adobe.com.
Lightroom CC review
Despite my apprehension to changes in the business model, I like the direction Adobe is taking with Lightroom on iOS... Brush edits are HUGE. The performance is great. It's also nice to see global detail tools, the old way to sharpen on iOS didn't make as much sense (although sharpening on desktop LR is still easier when holding Option).
The UI refresh brings it more in line with desktop LR (editing tools on the right), and it seems much faster to navigate through the different tool groups, but now that the tools are persistent, there’s no way to edit "full screen" anymore. I like the change to one finger touch to preview edits (from a three finger touch in the prior version of the app), but I find myself missing a good way to preview individual adjustments.
Would still like to see perspective adjustments, HDR & panorama merging, cloning & healing, smart fill (desktop too—one of the few features that keeps me coming back to Photoshop), and the ability to switch camera color profiles. Most of these requests would be moot if we could get full resolution (adjusted) raw files out of Lightroom so they can be round-tripped with other photo editing apps, but if you began the process on the desktop, you’re limited to editing smart previews of full images...
Despite all that, Lightroom CC is a fantastic iPad experience and I'm more optimistic about this update than not. It's faster, easier to navigate and the brush editing is awesome.
It is a great start
I have been using Photoshop and Lightroom for years. Finally having them on an iPad Pro is huge. I can leave my laptop home. I can use the Apple Pencil. This is the new model for the modern creative.
That being said...
There are A LOT of missing features from Lightroom Classic. Way too many to list here. The ones of note: there are no real print options (even ordering) or books, or any of the back half of a workflow. There are also no options for storing other places (Adobe Cloud only... we’ll get to that), and no smart collections or versions. If, these, or any others from the laundry list are critical for your workflow, stick with Classic for now. You can still sync collections to Lightroom CC from Classic.
Adobe, here is the single biggest feature you need: unlimited cloud storage. Right now, you can only store to Creative Cloud, which is okay, except for the exorbitant costs you are charging for storage. 1 TB is one day shooting for many photographers, especially those with high end DSLRs. 10 TB should not be $100s of dollars a month. A 2TB hard drive is $80 online. Google GIVES away UNLIMITED storage. Here’s the deal: your AI, Sensei, needs images to learn from. You give us unlimited storage, and Sensei would have an enormous library to learn from.
I believe Adobe will get there. If Lightroom CC gets unlimited storage at a reasonable cost, and other crucial features added, this will be the new best photo tool for photographers.
