I tried to automate my workflow with adobe Lightroom and iOS Shortcuts on my iPhone 8+. But I allways get an error message when I try to open Lightroom CC with the shortcut app – like in the picture. And whats also super disappointing, I cant import RAWs in that way. Is there a fix for that problems. I really love Lightroom CC on the iPhone because it can optimale the workflow, but that a total bummer.

I don't understand why you have the Open App command. 

If you remove the last item from the Siri Shortcut, the images are selected and imported. Perhaps you can describe what you are trying to do with that last step?

I think the issue is that the app name may be wrong. When I add that step to a workflow, the app name shows as “Lightroom CC” and is blue in color. If you just typed in Lightroom, try typing “Lightroom CC” explicitly and selecting it from the list that pops up.

Found a solution. Seems that the bug is is on apples side. But the way as it’s shown in the screenshot works quite well. Rikk my idea was to write a macro that imports my pictures, sets the right display brightness and then opens Lightroom so it’s one press of a button. I’m super excited if there will be more functions in shortcuts like applying own presets on the imported pictures.
