Lightroom mobile 1.3 for iPhone and iPad is now available as an update in the App Store. The goal of this update is to provide new features and bug fixes for issues identified in previous versions of Lightroom mobile. New Features include:
• Edit images faster by copying image adjustments and pasting them onto another photo.
•Easily find your favorite images ! The new Segmented view in Collections gives you a different way to view and engage with your photos.
•Want to pass your device around the family to look at your photos? With Presentation Mode, you can do that without worrying about your flags, ratings and adjustments being accidentally changed.
Be sure to check out Russell Brown’s overview video here.
I’m happy to announce that Lightroom mobile is now available for Android phones!
Lightroom mobile allows you to utilize your Android phone to review and edit images that have been synchronized using Lightroom on the desktop. Once changes are made, they are automatically synchronized back to your Lightroom catalog (on the desktop).
This post on the Lightroom Journal provides details on how to get started as well as supported features. Enjoy!
Note: It may take up to 24 hours for Lightroom mobile to be available in your local Google Play app store.
When creating a collection in Lightroom, if you check the option to “Sync with Lightroom mobile”, any image added to the collection will automatically be uploaded to the cloud so that it can sync with Lightroom mobile.
Note: you must be signed in using your Adobe ID to enable this feature and, since Lightroom mobile is a service, it is available only via membership plans. Lightroom 5 perpetual license does not include access to Lightroom mobile. Click here for the FAQ for Lightroom Mobile.
If you are not familiar with Lightroom’s web interface, it’s an excellent way to share collections of images with clients and friends so that they can make comments and add “likes” to images. This collaboration process can occur on any device that has web access via a browser (in other words, your clients and friends don’t have to have Lightroom or download any special viewing utility to see the collections that you share with them – they do however need an Adobe ID).
To view all of your synced collections within a browser, go to lightroom.adobe.com. Or, from within the Lightroom desktop app, choose Help > View Your Synced Collections on the Web.
Click on a collection to view the contents.
Click on an image to view it. When someone else views your image, they will be able to add “comments” and “like” you image (see how to share your Collections below).
To view a collection in the web interface from within the Lightroom desktop app, Control -click (Mac) | Right -click (Win) on any synced collection in the Collection panel and choose Lightroom Mobile Link > View on Web.
Synced collections can be public or private (they are private by default). To share your collection, click the Share button at the top-right of the Grid View.
Once you have made a collection public, you can easily copy and share the link as well as choose to Unshare at any time.
Note: since Lightroom mobile is a service, it is available only via membership plans. Lightroom 5 perpetual license does not include access to Lightroom mobile. Click here for the FAQ for Lightroom mobile.
Since I can’t figure out how to add an illustration in the comments, here is a screenshot of the little triangle under the name of a collect. When clicked, it displays the Custom Sort order that was asked about in the comments…
Be sure to download the update to Lightroom mobile to access new features including:
• Set pick flags and star ratings without having to switch contexts or modes.
• Collect feedback on shared collections using lightroom.adobe.com. That feedback will then flow back into Lightroom mobile. (Stay tuned for how this feedback will flow back into Lightroom desktop in an upcoming release).
• GPS information from the iPhone now syncs with Lightroom desktop.
Plus, there have been bug fixes, performance improvements, and language updates. Lightroom mobile 1.2 adds support for Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, Korean, and Spanish.
Jeff Tranberry has been very busy creating, curating and updating resources to help answer frequently asked customer questions about the transition from Photoshop CC to the 2014 Release of Photoshop. He found that the majority of questions focused around “Where’s my Stuff…” Click here for the answers to questions such as:
Where are my settings & workspaces?
Where are my presets?
Where are my custom panels?
Where are my 3rd party plug-ins?
Why do I now have two versions of Photoshop installed?

As some of you might have noticed, there are a number of presets available on Lightroom mobile that are different from the default presets available in the Lightroom desktop app. This is because some of the presets for Lightroom mobile were redesigned to be optimized for images originating on mobile devices. Click this link – Lightroom mobile presets, if you would like to download, unzip and install these presets in the Lightroom desktop app.
To install: download and unzip the “Lightroom mobile presets.zip” file and place the subfolders (01 CREATIVE, 02 COLOR etc.), in the following location:
• Mac (user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets
• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets
If you are on a Mac, the Library menu may be hidden depending on your operating system. To reveal it, hold the Option key down while selecting the “Go” menu in the Finder.
Note: you can also access this folder from within Lightroom by choosing Preferences > Presets. Under Location, click Show Lightroom Presets Folder.
Be sure to drag the subfolders (not the parent folder) into the Develop Presets as Lightroom can’t see presets in nested folders.
If you are interested in installing only the presets that are different (to avoid duplication) you can download and install these UniqueLRmobilePresets instead.

The Lightroom mobile team has changed the default cellular network behavior to dramatically improve the product experience. Instead of the preference being turned OFF by default (like I state in my video tutorials), it is ON by default. This enables Lightroom to automatically Sync using Cellular data if WiFi is not available.
After yesterdays release of Lightroom mobile, I want to reiterate that when you sync a collection of images from Lightroom on the desktop to Lightroom mobile we are syncing Smart Previews – not the entire raw files. This means that you should not think of Lightroom mobile as a “backup solution”.
There are a number of reasons for using Smart Previews in today’s workflow including; bandwidth, speed, performance, and storage space. So although you might have thought that Smart Previews were only useful for working with off-line files, now you know that they were designed for and specifically optimized to be used on a mobile device.
And don’t worry, Lightroom will create Smart Previews for the images that you choose to sync automatically, so you don’t have to do a thing.
