What is Lightroom CC Mobile?
Lightroom CC is a free mobile photo editing app available on android and iOS devices. It allows you to sync your photos, edits, presets, and profiles from your Lightroom CC desktop app if you have the Creative Cloud Subscription. The settings are synced with all Lightroom CC apps you have installed on different computers and mobile devices.
Similar to the desktop versions of Lightroom, the mobile app has panels and modules that separate where you perform certain tasks.
Settings Panel - opens by clicking the hamburger icon in the top left corner
Edit Module - opens selecting an image to edit
Albums Panel - opens by clicking the books icon in the top bar
Search - allows you to search through your photos by clicking the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner
Sync Settings - opens by clicking the cloud icon in the top right corner. Allows you to manage and monitor your sync settings between your Lightroom Mobile apps (if you app installed on multiple mobile devices) and your Lightroom CC desktop app (if you have it installed on multiple computers)
Selective Edits - allows you to select certain areas in your images and make a series of edits (ranging from lighting to detail to color) on the selected area. It can be compared to making selections and masks in Photoshop
Healing - allows you remove blemishes and distractions from your images
Crop - here you can crop, straighten and rotate your images
Profiles - similar to presets, this are like filters that you can adjust the strength of by using a slider. Similar to how you edit in apps such as VSCO and instagram.
Light - allows you to edit the lighting in an image. This includes exposure, contrast, shadows, highlights, blacks, and whites with easy to use sliders. You can also make advanced lighting adjustments with the Curves tool.
Color - allows you to edit color temperature and vibrance/saturation via easy to use sliders. For advanced and selective color adjustments, you'll need to go the Mix section. And for advanced Black and White adjustments you'll need to click the BW button.
Effects - here is where you can adjust and add effects such as clarity, deglaze, grain, and vignette with sliders. You can also go to Split Tone and create a cross processed effect for your images.
Detail - allows you to adjust sharpening, noise reduction, and other details in your image
Geometry - allows you to distort and scale images to change the crop
Presets - this is where all of the Default and your custom presets are stored. Presets are premade editing settings that are applied in one-click. Additional edits and adjustments can be made after applying presets. You can get the popular Bright Whites Mobile Preset Collection here.
Reset - allows you to reset image to original or previous settings
