I have the Lightroom app for my Chromebook app and I'm doing the 30 day free trial of the upgraded version. It still lacks a few things from the desktop version that I hope will get added: size adjustments for the brush tool and eraser (much needed), Automask would be very helpful as well. On the linear gradient, when using the eraser, it would be helpful to still see the mask showing where the gradient is applied so you can see what you're erasing. Again, a size adjustment on the eraser here as well. For adjusting whites and blacks, I know on the desk top version you can hold shift and double click the whites/blacks slider and it automatically maximizes them for you. That would be extremely helpful on the app. Keyboard shortcuts would be nice as well, like O, M, [ and ], etc.

There should be size adjustments for the brush/eraser. I don't have a chromebook but if you can grab a screenshot of the selective editing UI with a brush selected, I should be able to spot it.

I brushed lines with each of the three dots and they're all the same size. I also tried to click and right click on the diamond that appears in the brushed lines after I made them, but nothing happens. Hope you find something I'm missing....

The size button is down the left hand side. The circles are size (top) then feather (middle) then flow (bottom). You hold your finger on the applicable circle button then drag up/down to change the size. If you're on a small size and you're still getting a big brush stroke, that would be a bug.

Thanks! I don't have a touch screen, but it I click and hold a button then move the mouse up or down it adjusts the size, feather, and flow. I would have never figured that out on my own. Thanks again!

You're welcome. There's a bunch of those little oddities, but they're all in my Edit Like a Pro book.
