This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Mobile: Support for keyword and metadata editing

It is ridiculous that we are still having this conversation this far down the line. Today saw the addition of HDR for LR Mobile and yet we still have no Metadata (at all) on the iPAD. For working professional photographers Metadata is an intrinsic part of the image! It's looking more and more like Adobe are aiming this tool at the people that want to make pretty pictures and not those that are actually (still) trying to make a living from those pictures.

I agree, but Adobe never said that Lightroom Mobile is for the working professional.

We need metadata.  We need Keywords.  We need the adjustment brush.  We need the healing & cloning tool inside LRM rather than having to jump out to Photoshop Fix.  We need client comment feedback without having to sign in to Adobe Cloud. We need a standard UI between all mobile devices so we can pick up any device and shoot/post process without having to wonder where Adobe put that buton.  That UI should prioritize so UI doesn't block the image (as it does in current iPhone), or at least allow moving UI so you can see all of the image.  We need a complete RAW workflow that allows post processing on mobile device in parallel with movement of RAW images back to desktop (current RAW workflow is very good for 10 RAW images, but terrible for a 200 image shoot while traveling or shooting in studio).  HDR was nice addition yesterday, but it could have waited as most professionals have graduated filters for their cameras.  Panoramas and Focus stacking can wait awhile until we have the above.

Yes, all things that professionals need. But I guess Adobe aims LrM at a different target group...
