Whether you are a Creative Cloud subscriber and want to know how to get started with Lightroom mobile or web or you are not a subscriber and are just curious about what you’re missing, the video tutorial below will show you.
In the Lightroom mobile portion of this tutorial I show you how to easily sync (download) photos from Lightroom on your desktop to your mobile devices, how to work on your photos on your mobile devices and have that work show up back in Lightroom on your desktop (and vice versa), how to sync your mobile device camera roll photos up to Lightroom on your desktop, and how to change where these are stored. In the Lightroom web portion I show you how to share collections of photos with clients and friends by giving them a web page URL, how they can like and comment on your photos, and how you can manage those comments using Lightroom. Finally, I show how you can import and edit photos using Lightroom in a web browser, for when you don’t have access to your own computer with your Lightroom software.

This video is one of 76 in my Lightroom CC/6 and 5: The Fundamentals & Beyond video series. (The video on Collections that it refers to is part of this series.)
