Lightroom Ecosystem: Please add Camera Calibration

LR mobile is part of the reason I subscribed to Creative Cloud. I love the idea of integrating a tablet into my workflow, using the tablet to flag and edit photos in my synced collections on the go, or in tandem with my workstation. One of the biggest appeals of Lightroom is the editing power it possesses. I realize when the app first released, it might've been difficult to run all the different adjustment modules found in Lightroom on mobile devices. However, in just the past year tablets and smartphones have come a long way to the point where there is no reason to dumb down or limit the app from having full editing functionality.I can see the Detail, Lens Correction, and Color Calibration adjustment modules from the app when I select a photo that I've already edited from my computer. However, I can't modify these adjustments or make them from the app--something that severely limits the utility of LR mobile. It's difficult to justify using the app for editing photos if I will then have to go on my computer and go through each and every picture to add sharpness, reduce noise, change the color calibration and correct for lens distortion and vignetting. Is an update in the works to bring these features into the app? If not, I'd like to know why they're absent. I can't be the only customer who wants this functionality added...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Mobile: Camera Calibration for Lightroom iPad version.

Good day @ all, I have been using Lightroom on the iPad for a long time because I enjoy editing photos anywhere on the go. The program is also very well developed. But why is "camera calibration" still missing? Will Adobe install that soon?

Please Adobe, Please bring Camera Calibration Module to Lightroom & Lightroom CC this is absolutely essential as a photographer, especially for creating presets. It's just as important as any other module like curves and HSL. Please guy make this happen for everyone.

I purchased the Lightroom mobile plan thinking I would be able to do good color grading but I just can’t do it without calibrating my camera colors.

Camera calibration is one of the first steps for a good color grading.

The Lightroom desktop app has been supporting camera calibration for years, unfortunately for some unknown reason the Lightroom mobile app doesn’t have the camera calibration panel.

I would like to request this simple and fundamental feature as soon as possible.

Thank you.

That’s a feature I’ve been waiting for years! I feel my workflow isn’t complete because of that.

Lightroom Mobile supports camera profiles, so you can create a custom camera profile on your desktop computer and upload that. Mobile devices are not color managed, so I doubt it is useful to try to get more accurate colors than that.

@Johan_Elzenga sure that could be a workaround if you are only using the camera calibration panel to get accurate colors.

But if you’re using it to modify the “feel” of the image or as a step of you’re color grading artistic workflow, exporting desktop profiles will be a short term solution for a long term problem.

@Johan_Elzenga if you Google this issue you’ll see that many photographers have been asking Adobe to put this panel in Lightroom mobile too.

It’s been 5+ years since lots of users are requesting this basic functionality.

Do we have any response from Adobe?
