It took ages for me to upload the pictures onto lightroom through my computer, when this was finally achieved it would not let me edit a single thing about them. it let me on the app on my phone but i really wanted to do this properly. will not be signing up for the subscription once my trial ends.

When you say it won't let you edit them, can you see and move the edit sliders? In what will will it not let you edit them?

I can see the sliders but they are all blacked out and will not let me change anything!

Ok, let's get a bit more information. Can you please go to Help menu > System Info and paste the first few lines, so we can get additional information about your system?  And a screenshot of what you can see would be a big help in figuring out what's up too.

Have you previously been able to edit on this computer? And how long ago did you install it (e.g. could the trial have run out?)
