This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Mobile: Support for keyword and metadata editing

Ipad version 1 is welcome.

It is an ideal tool for adding metadata to images.

Please provide the ability to maintain at least the following fields.

Title
Caption
Location.
User Comment.

The User Interface for Mac / Windows makes it difficult to edit metadata, due to the small font size, cluttered list of fields and narrow column width. The UI of the iPad would allow the user to easily scale the screen to allow very good text entry features. With current hardware this will deliver real benefit, whereas, we will have to wait for better calibrated iPads to really take advantage of the develop features.

Note. Please do not merge this with Keywords requests. It is amazing that so many Develop features were added, but so few Library features. There should be separate requests for Kewording and Rating.

I am not looking for anything fancy.

For bulk handling of metadata, the native LR app is ideal, especially at the import stage.

The iPad becomes a good tool to apply image specific text based information (Title, Location Description, Caption, User Comment).

I just want to be able to view the titles and captions in Lightroom Mobile when viewing a slideshow. Being able to edit them would be even better.

I agree, we don't need all the image developing features in Lightroom Mobile. The library features are far more important.

Metadata review / edit should have been there from day one - it is much easier to implement than complex image editing.

Not sure why this crucial area of the workflow is being ignored by Adobe.

It is my experience that Adobe give total lip service to the word "Workflow". I have so many examples of lost opportunities. They need someone in their organisation that can champion how data can flow smoothly between their apps.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Add the ability to enter a caption for the photo via Lightroom Mobile.


The most logical time to enter a caption for a photo is immediately after taking the photo. Please add the ability to enter and modify the caption from the mobile apps.
