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

Still 3 years later and we still can't add and edit keywords on LightRoom Mobile? Come on, that is the most critical function, stars are nice and needed but we need to be able to add and edit FULL metadata, especially keywords.

I have a collection of over 6,000 images that I need to travel with, which is why I purchased Lightroom Mobile. The first thing I looked for when I got my collection synced across my devices was a way to find specific images based on the metadata. I thought I was just missing it, but after scrolling through 4 years of frustrated user posts, I can't believe this still isn't possible! I thought Lightroom was for serious photographers with serious photo collections, not just amateurs with iPhones. (Disclaimer: I don't wish to offend anyone, I'm just angry and frustrated that I bought into a software solution that I thought was a solution.)

After reading about the new Lightroom CC features I really hope that syncing keywords will be coming to Lr Classic as well.

But as Adobe appears to like baiting people into using cloud applications I somewhat doubt it...

Yes me too ! I dream of a huge "Keyword Set" with 35 tags that i can setup spacially exactly how i want* on my ipad... User of Lightroom since 5 years, I will suscribe to Lightroom mobile when something like this will be available. The ipad is just MADE for a Keyword Set on the side while I'm editing pictures (in develop module on the laptop)

* Ideally with different colors/sizes of text possible for my different types of tags..

OR... please give us the possibility to access Lightroom keywords of the actual photo in a third part app that connect to lightroom in some way...

Or... Make all the preview pictures non-encrypted and propose the option to sync (in realtime and in both direction) Lightroom tags, with Mac Os X Tags, that are living in those files...  :-)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC for iOS: Add way to add metadata caption/description to my photos.

This is the only feature that is preventing me from moving to a mobile first image processing workflow. I want to store description with each photo using the Exif metadata fields.
