I'd really, really like to be able to do keywording on my iPad in the LR mobile app. Could save me a lot of Google-time back at the desktop trying to figure just where I was standing for that shot, and what's the name of that building, mountain, river, village etc, etc

Lightroom Mobile: Being able to add keywords (and labels) are of major importance..


Lightroom Mobile really needs the ability to add keywords to the photos. This is one of the major things you will want to do when you're away from Lightroom and are killing time waiting for your plane/being on the plane etc.

LIGHTROOM MOBILE: Allow metadata entry..


Ipad version 1 is welcome.

It is an ideal tool for adding metadata to images.

Please provide the ability to maintain the following fields.

Title
Caption
Location.

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.

Lightroom Mobile: Add keywords support..


I would like to use Lightroom (on my iPad) to catalog and keyword images and leave the editing to my desktop (iMac) as it's easier to edit on a bigger screen (for me at least).

Lightroom Mobile: Why no Keywording?.


I was sooo very excited when I downloaded Lightroom Mobile on my iPad yesterday. I was soooo very disappointed when I discovered that the tasks I am most likely to do away from the desktop, are not included. Editing photos on a ipad- meh, maybe family snapshots, etc. Organizing/attributing/Sorting - ABSOLUTELY!!! I created a collection that I intended to keyword on the bus this morning, no dice. I'm just hoping that it will be included in a pending update in the not-too-distant future.

Lightroom Mobile: More Other Features.


All I need is to be able to view and edit keywords and metadata. Key wording is probably the most important thing for me; to be able to edit or change them in Lightroom Mobile would make it over the top useful. I honestly don't need to edit images on an iPad or another tablet. Keywords take up most of my time.

You should be able to change other attributes other than the flag, there is color and starts to consider as well.

An export to Photoshop Touch could be useful, but this might mean an upgrade to Photoshop Touch so the files get saved back into Lightroom. Again this might not be possible on iOS.

I moved over from Photoshop Elements to Lightroom a year ago mostly because of the LRMobile app's potential. I agree that mobile keywording and metadata maintenance are the most useful functions for me and likely for many others. I was shocked when I learned that it was (and still is) omitted from the latest LRM build. Come on Adobe, step up!

I'd like to be able to use that extra time waiting at the doctor's office or at the gate for a flight to go back and add keywords to my images (but please make it easy to add keywords to multiple images at a time, and have a long list of recent keywords to save me typing on a tablet)

Don't care about creating keywords on my phone, but being able to use existing keywords to search through thousands of images to find the ones I want would be a definite plus. I can't imagine that this update is too far away.

For me it's one of 3 missing features and would help me immensely when travelling to be more productive before returning to the mothership iMac :)
The others being exports retaining exif and the ability to show numbers of images against star ratings.

Pete,
Couldn't agree more, I want to do any editing on my computer and sync them over to a tablet (iPad in this case) to keyword on on the run. I often have downtime and only have my iPad with me so if I could keyword during that time. It's a basic yet necessary feature that I need as well as color coding images. Never use flags or stars.

Keyword tagging in lightroom mobile.


This feature would be very useful in the mobile app. Is it planned in the future updates and if so, when?

Like lots of others I see the ipad app as not a tool for editing, but for review and text entry. Lots of people looking for keywords. I would like access to the metadata and in particular, the ability to edit Title, Caption and Sub location.

The main Lightroom app on Mac / PC makes editing of metadata fields tricky with small fonts on a large screen. The Ipad can become the perfect tool for metadata text entry.

The ability to email from the iPad would allow me to post directly to various social media sites with my Title,Caption and Location data already entered and reviewed. A perfect task to complete from the field or hotel, before getting back to the main workstation at the office.

This is such an important feature to so many users! I wonder why we don't get even one acknowledgment from Adobe staff?
Don't they monitor these forums?
Even if they tell us no, this feature is never coming. It would allow many of us to start planning alternative routes.

I passed on LR Mobile because it lacked this feature, and went with Photosmith instead. For batch work I'm more inclined to use the iPad for metadata than editing, especially raws.

Yes please. Keywords, and metadata in general seems like an obvious thing for Mobile.

I will buy a subscription if this is added, it is a basic requirement for me as IOS8 does not supports iphoto.

A new update for Lightroom mobile came out yesterday but sadly, still no sign of keywording functionality on mobile devices.... completely disappointing...

I second that emotion. Why can Adobe not see how important this functionality is to our workflow?

After spending some time with Lightroom mobile, I appreciate it a lot more than I thought I would. However, I would really like to be able to add keywords as well. The other thing I miss is the ability to straighten (not rotate) a picture.

It's not enough for me to just tag and rate my images. Need to use Keywords!
