Note: Syncing to Lightroom on the desktop and the web requires a Lightroom trial or a paid Adobe Creative Cloud membership.

Create an album

Lightroom albums are a great way to organize your photos into different groups. Sign in to Lightroom on your mobile device using your Adobe ID. To make a new album, tap the plus (+) icon to the right of the albums on the Library screen. Tap OK after you’ve given your new album a name.

Add photos from your device

Tap the three dots to the right of the album name and then Add Photos to add existing photos to an album. You can add photos from All Photos in Lightroom or from your mobile device’s Camera Roll. Select multiple photos by tapping individual thumbnails or swiping across images. When you’ve finished making your selections, tap Add to import them into Lightroom and add them to the album.

Capture a photo

Tap the blue camera icon to take a photo with the Lightroom camera. The Lightroom camera is set to the Auto mode by default. Select Professional to access additional options such as shutter speed and white balance. In Professional mode, you can lock/unlock auto exposure and apply a preset filter. If you want to capture a raw file, tap the file format icon in the top center and select DNG.

Edit a photo

Share photos

Tap the share icon at the top of the screen to share your photos via social media or email. Then choose Share to… After Lightroom has finished preparing the image, select the sharing options available on your device.

Access synced photos on your desktop and the web

All changes made in Lightroom on your mobile device are mirrored in Lightroom on the desktop and Lightroom on the web. Any changes you make in the desktop or web versions are automatically synced to mobile.

Note: If you want to make some adjustments to the photo just let me know. I can do it for you at a very low cost. You can hire me to edit your photo.
