When using sliders under the 'Detail' panel, for Sharpening and Noise reduction, especially when masking (and using two fingers for this slider for easier visualisation of the effect), there is no real time adjustment, and so sliding the level of adjustment is quite a frustrating process and makes using these sliders not very efficient.

Please improve this performance, I am currently using an iPad Pro 10.5 and the hardware should be powerful enough to deal with locally stored original RAW files (from a 16MP Nikon D4).

In reality, when making an adjustment with any slider or selective brush, LR Mobile uses a lower resolution proxy/preview and if you want to see full resolution, you must wait a second with your finger still on the slider before it updates. This is not a problem for me however when doing exposure edits, but I can foresee people being frustrated if for example using the Apple Pencil to do healing retouching work.

Other than that I am really enjoying using LR Mobile in conjunction with LR Classic, although a few other features such as being able to set a different default camera profile on import, and also batch pasted edits would be fantastic.

TLDR; Please improve real time performance of Detail sliders, especially masking for sharpening.

There is indeed a huge lag with the display of the mask.


I don’t think it was an issue some updates ago, but I’m not sure about it...
