Cropping Grids that are available in Photoshop Added to Lightroom Mobile App and Lightroom. I would love it if these features were available in the Cloud based Lightroom and the Mobile version.

In Lightroom desktop, if you right-click on the image while the crop tool is active, there is an option to cycle the overlay.

I'll check. I'm not talking about the standard grid. I'm talking about the Golden Spiral, Triangle, Golden Ratio and Diagnol Grids.

Yes, in LrC I see several grid types under Tools/Crop Guide Overlay while in crop tool. With shortcut letter o you can cycle thru . In LR Desktop you can switch/cycle only the normal grid. Looks like Adobe should add it in one of the next releases. But for me it is a low priority improvement. Why is it important for you? Perhaps I am overlooking something.

I use the desktop/cloud version and am constantly importing images into Photoshop for the Grid tools. I would prefer not to have to do that. I would prefer not to have to import into Photoshop at all on most images. I prefer to keep my Raw files until I export for Print or digital gallery.

It depends on what my subject is.  I am a portrait photographer (people) and a Fine Art Bird Photographer.  I play around with the grids to see which gives me the greatest Point of Interest.
