To access the Adobe Lightroom mobile in-app camera with a single swipe down, you can enable it using the Notification Center widget (on iOS).
Access Notifications by swiping downwards from the top of the screen. Scroll down and tap the Edit Button.
Once added, you can drag the grabber handle on the right to reorder if desired, and click Done. Lightroom mobile will now appear in the Notification Center enabling you to quickly access the in-app camera. There’s even a shortcut to edit the last photo. Enjoy!
Lightroom for iOS 2.4 includes the addition of local adjustment tools (Radial and Linear), raw file format support (technology preview), the ability to copyright photos on import, automatic lens profile correction (if your camera and lens combination are supported), and the ability to use keyboard shortcuts when a physical keyboard is attached to an iPad.
Local Adjustments Tools:
To use a local adjustment, tap the Local Adjust icon.
Tap the icon in the lower left to choose between the Linear and Radial Selection tools.
Tap-drag in the image preview to apply the tool and change the settings as desired. Note: swipe in the options area to access additional settings to the right of Clarity.
For the Linear Gradient:
- Tap-drag the pin to reposition.
- Tap-drag the center line to rotate
- Tap-drag the start/end lines to increase/decrease the length of the fade
- Tap the trash icon to delete the pin
- Tap the plus icon to add a second adjustment
Note: each time you add a new adjustment, all settings are reset to zero.
Linear and Radial adjustments can be quickly duplicated within an image:
You can also apply the same setting to another file using the Previous button (the second to last option in the row of tiles).
For the Radial Gradient:
- Tap the white/black square with the arrows in it to invert the mask
- Tap-drag the small white circles to change size.
- Tap-drag the white line to rotate.
- Tap-drag the large circle (with the gradient) to change the feather radius (fade range).
Note: the Radial selection can be larger than the image. Use the pinch gesture to zoom out and drag as desired.
Raw File Format Support (Technology Preview)
You can now transfer raw files to your iOS device and work on them in Lightroom mobile. Add your files to the iOS camera roll. From there, import into Lightroom mobile.
There are a variety of ways to add files to Lightroom mobile including:
- Tap the Lr icon and enable Auto Add Photos (to add photos to the All Photos view).
- Tap the three dots next to any collection and Enable Auto Add (to add photos to that specific collection).
- Within a collection, tap the Add Photos… button.
The raw files that you import onto Lightroom mobile (as well as any changes made to them) will be synchronized across devices including the Lightroom desktop application. In this workflow, a full version of the raw file is stored in the cloud (if you start by downloading photographs into the Lightroom desktop app, Smart Previews are stored in the cloud). Depending on your camera, you may notice that raw files take longer to download and take up more space on your device because of their size). This new functionality should enable me to leave my laptop behind more often as I can now select, edit, and publish raw images from my SLR while on location.
Lens Profiles and Copyright Data
You can also enable lens profile corrections for Raw only or All files as well as Add copyright metadata on import. Tap the Lr icon to access the settings and tap Import.
Choose to Enable (lens profile) Corrections on All files or Raw only and Apply Copyright data.
If you have a physical keyboard attached to your iPad, you can use keyboard shortcuts in Lightroom for mobile
Note: Local adjustments and raw support are available for members with a Creative Cloud subscription or for a limited time through a free trial. As before, all of the rest of Lightroom for mobile works without being a paid member.
Lightroom for Android 2.1
The capture experience for Android has been redefined with the new Lightroom Camera widget. Not only can you capture raw files (DNG), the camera has a new Pro mode that allows you to control shutter speed, ISO, white balance, and focus manually. In addition, you can download and export full resolution files (if the files are within the Lightroom ecosystem).
Additional videos about Lightroom mobile can be found here: Lightroom Video Tutorials.
Check out all of the great new features and enhancements made to Lightroom mobile including:
iPad Pro Support – including support for iOS 9’s multitasking capabilities such as Split View and Slide Over (on supported devices).
Point Curve Mode in Tone Panel – take color control to the next level with a full function Tone Curve tool, enabling access to composite (RGB) as well as individual red, green, and blue color channels in your photo.
Shoot-through Presets. Apply one of five new, specially formulated, non-destructive presets while capturing a photo from the Adobe in-app camera including:
- High Contrast – increases Contrast in Basic Panel and adjusts Tone Curve
- Flat – decreases contrast in the Tone Curve
- Warm Shadows – adjusts Blacks and Whites in Basic Panel, Tone Curve and Split Toning
- High Contrast B&W – converts to B/W and increases Contrast in Basic Panel and adjusts Tone Curve

Notification Center Widget – get instant access to the Adobe in-app camera by enabling the Lightroom for mobile Notification Center widget, to automatically launch the in-app camera with a single swipe down.
I didn’t know how to enable the notification center widget for Lightroom mobile, so I included the following screenshots to help anyone else that was in the same situation:
Access Notifications by swiping downwards from the top of the screen and tap the Edit Button.
In the Add Widgets screen, scroll down until you see Lightroom mobile, tap the green plus icon to add it, drag the grabber handle on the right to reorder if desired, and click Done.
Lightroom mobile will now appear in the Notification Center enabling you to quickly access the in-app camera.
3D Touch support on iPhone 6s/6s Plus – press and hold on any photo in the Grid view to preview your photo with Peek and Pop.
In addition, there have been many usability improvements throughout the app including easier addition of multiple photos to collections, faster import options, and improved gesture support to get you quickly organizing, creating, and sharing amazing images anywhere you are!

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…
These updates include support for 24 new cameras and 57 new lens profiles, as well as assorted bug fixes (click here to see the entire list).
Lightroom 5.7 now supports the Collaboration and Feedback features found in Lightroom mobile and the Lightroom web interface including the ability to view comments and likes from Lightroom web. More specifically:
- Synced collections now show a more prominent share button at the top of the Toolbar in the Lightroom desktop app. This allows you to quickly share your synced collection with friends, family, and clients using Lightroom web (http://lightroom.adobe.com).
- Comments and likes left on Lightroom web now sync to the Lightroom desktop catalog. Comments and Likes will be shown in the “Comment” panel for synced collections.
- Images with comments and likes will display a badge indicating that there are comments and a colored badge to indicate that there are unread comments.
- Additional details on the new Lightroom 5.7 can be found here.
The ACR 8.7 update for CC includes HiDPI support on Windows.
Check out the video below to see the new features for Lightroom mobile on the iPhone and iPad including custom sort orders, star ratings and sharing images via email. Plus, walk though the auto import from camera roll workflow on the iPhone.
