How to Use Lightroom Mobile

This emindsca will walk you through the process of using the Lightroom mobile app. Unless you pay for a Creative Cloud subscription, Lightroom CC is a free app with limited features. A subscription grants you access to the mobile app’s syncing features, certain editing tools, and the ability to edit raw files. However, even without a CC subscription, this mobile app can be a powerful photo editor.

Method 1 Taking or Importing Pictures

1. Navigate to the Lightroom mobile app. If you don’t already have the app, you can download it for free from the Google Play Store or the App Store.

Make sure to log in if you pay for an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription.

2. Select the camera icon. It can be found in the bottom right corner of the screen.

To import photos instead of taking them, tap the import icon rather than the camera icon, or go to Lightroom on your computer and select the Library tab, then your name, and Sync with Lightroom Mobile.

Before you can use the app, you may need to tap Skip to bypass a welcome tutorial.

When the camera loads, you’ll see an interface similar to your standard camera view.

3. Tap the file format to change it. It’s centered at the top of your screen.

4. Tap the switch to DNG or JPEG. If you want to edit your picture after taking it, make sure DNG is selected. Select JPEG if you don’t want to edit the image.

5. Change the shooting mode. To switch between Auto and Professional shooting modes, tap the text in the lower left corner of your screen. Choose Auto to have Lightroom handle all of the settings for you; however, if you want to change things like shutter speed, ISO, or exposure, choose Professional.

If you select “Professional,” tap on an element (such as ISO) to change it, then slide your finger left and right to change the levels.

6. Alter your filter. To set or change a filter, tap the three-circle icon in the lower right corner. The unfiltered version of your original view is the tile on the left.

7. Change the settings. To see more options, tap the three-dot menu icon in the lower right corner of your screen, then use the icons just above the circle icon for capturing an image to change your settings. The 4:3 icon displays the current ratio of your image; the speedometer-looking icon activates the timer feature; the eye icon changes the display on your phone (allowing you to add a grid layout to the screen); and the gear icon changes settings such as what your volume keys change and whether or not the original photo should be saved.

8. Select the circle icon. This will take a picture of what your camera sees. You can either continue taking pictures by tapping the circle icon, or you can view and edit your previous picture by tapping the thumbnail.

Method 2 Editing Pictures

1. Navigate to the Lightroom mobile app. If you don’t already have the app, you can download it for free from the Google Play Store or the App Store.

Make sure to log in if you pay for an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription.

2. To edit an image, tap it. Select All Photos, People, or Deleted to browse your Lightroom storage.

Tap the image thumbnail to the left if you’re in camera mode.

3. To make changes, use the tools at the bottom of your screen. When you first launch the app, you are prompted to complete a quick editing tutorial, which you can either skip or walk through.

Selective and Healing are paid editing tools that can’t be downloaded for free. They allow you to edit an entire area of your image as well as remove minor blemishes and imperfections.

Crop allows you to resize, rotate, straighten, flip, and change the aspect ratio of your image. It’s a useful tool for anyone.

Profiles is a free tool that allows you to create looks with filters, lighting changes, and colour selections.

Auto is a free tool that anyone can use to apply changes to an image to make it look as good as possible without you having to change anything.

Light and Color are free tools that anyone can use to adjust exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, whites, and blacks. To change the appearance of your image, move the sliders to the left and right next to each setting.

You can change the texture, clarity, and de-haze of your image using Effects. You can also increase the vignette setting to darken the image’s edges. It is also a free tool that anyone with a copy of Lightroom can use.

Detail is a free tool for changing the sharpness, radius, detail, and masking.

You can also open the Presets menu and choose from the available looks by tapping the icon of different-colored circles.

If you make an unfavourable edit, you can always go back to a previous version by tapping the redo icon (it looks like a clock with an arrow wrapping around it counter-clockwise).

4. Tap the save icon. It looks like a checkmark in the top right corner of your screen.

Method 3 Sharing and Saving Your Images

1. Tap. The share icon is in the top right corner of your screen when you finish editing an image.

You can save the picture or share it from this icon.

2. Tap Share to… or Save to Device/Camera Roll. After you tap Share to, you’ll see a list of who you can share the image to and compatible services (like Discord or Facebook). If you tap Save to Device/Camera Roll, you’ll see a message that your image has successfully finished saving.

3. Tap Share (or the appropriate button to share). If you want to share something through your Facebook newsfeed, you’ll need to tap Post instead. However, if you’re sharing the image via Facebook message, you’ll need to tap Send to do so.
