This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled LR CC mobile adding keywords not really functional.

One of the main reasons I moved to LR many years ago was the ease adding keywords to my photos. This is still my number 1 priority, although I have to admit that the tools nowadays available within Lightroom to tweak my photos are highly welcomed.

I am very disappointed by the way adding keywords is implemented in LR CC mobile (for my iPad). I can’t even select multiple photos to add keywords in one step. I have to add keywords to every single photo one after the other. Although having automated tagging and intelligent search functions is a nice thing it will never completely be a substitute for the adding of individual keywords.

Please add at least the possibility to select multiple photos to add keywords! Traveling light is getting more important every day and one of the basic LR functions(=organizing photos) should not be neglected!

Hi, can you add a feature to add tags to multiple photos at once. I prefer to tag photos instead of putting them in albums, at the moment I want tag multiple photos at once, but cannot. So I have to tag the photos one by one. Would be great if I can tag multiple photos at the same time. Thanks!

Really annoying going through photos on the iPad from the phone and cameras after a trip. It’s also not good that the collection title isn’t in the search. Example : Collection called Japan, search for Japan finds pictures with tags of Japan or oriental looking buildings but NOT the collection you have carefully stored the Japan trip photos in !

Can we have the ability to add metadata and keywords to multiple images at once, and not on single image only. It is very time consuming and boring to go through individual images and to this.

Absolutely yes! I still can’t understand why Adobe is neglecting those requests : (

That would be a great feature. They implemented similar stuff with the last android update, but it's not possible to add tags to several pictures at the same time...

Any update on this? You can add ratings, flags, titles etc. to several pictures at once since the last update, but not tags (most important one for me). Why? :(

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Caption Suggestion.

Lightroom Mobile is almost a perfect replacement for photojournalists in the field. Following the update that allowed for customized file naming/structure (Thank you to whoever worked on that issue!), I decided to try it again on a recent assignment. However, I found the captioning field and keywording section wanting.

I would suggest a tool to batch caption/keyword all images, similar to the copy/paste tool for color and light settings. I would also like to recommend that the text field in captioning be expanded to an expanded textbox rather than a one-line textbox.

When working on my previous assignment I made a generic caption and keyword field in the notes app (working off of an ipad pro) and then pasted it individually into each image I was filing. However, when I went to add information to the captions (specific names more detail) I had a terrible experience and lost time by having to scroll through from the back of the caption box to the top of the field.

When I checked the exported images the formatting was also broken. I leave spaces between graphs and a space between my attribution tag. In my exported files from LR Mobile everything was in one continuous graph which I then needed to fix on my laptop before I could file properly.

I have been a longtime user of Lightroom, I switched over from Aperture when adobe first released it. I rely on Lightroom for all of my work and was thrilled when Mobile first came on to the scene. I now feel that Mobile can outperform LR Classic/Desktop but for it to truly be a replacement for working professionals on deadline this captioning/keywording issue needs to be sorted out. I'd be happy to discuss the issue with a rep or developer and give more detailed examples.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Batch Tag Editing (Lightroom Mobile Feature Request).

I’d love to be able to batch edit the tags (assign, delete, modify, etc.) on Lightroom Mobile.

As of now I would have to double tap the individual image, go into the tag section and type in the tags I want to assign.

Repeat that for every single image. Takes way too much time. And you go crazy.

To be fair, I think you can batch edit on the desktop version. But we need this on mobile. We take so many pictures every day we need to be able to quickly sort and organize on the fly, on the spot.

This. Pls add this feature. You already added the batch functionality for all sort of things, why not for tags? Something I recognize as a missing feature nearly every day.

Can’t batch edit metadata (at least in iOS).

For example, I want to add the keyword “sunset” to 5 photos. Currently I have to do it one by one. Am I missing something??

This feature is essential, it is one of the most important to maintain a workflow. Labeling one of the images is a waste of time. Ideally, batch tagging, a tag selector, and not having to type them over and over again. Please implement this feature as soon as possible and I will have the best photography ios app,

I don't understand.  When I want to add the same keyword to multiple images, I open Grid View, highlight them all with the mouse, then add the keyword in the keyword box and all images receive the same keyword. I can also delete tags this way.  What is the issue?

This thread is about mobile for devices (Tablets and Phones) I believe you are talking about a desktop application here.
