No Camera Calibration on Lightroom Mobile

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.
