  • The camera can now be triggered with the phone Volume button.
  • All the new cameras and new lens profiles added to Lightroom 6.8 today are now supported / available in Lightroom mobile.

iPhone Only:

There has been a substantial amount of reorganization of features. New in 2.6 is the ability to add titles and captions!

  • Panels available: Edit, Info, Rate and Review, Activity


  • On the new Info panel, view metadata and type in titles, captions and copyright. (Note that in preferences you can add your copyright to all photos as they import.) Use Siri to save time!  As with all Lightroom mobile work, these fields sync over to Lightroom on your desktop computer.
Title, Caption, Copyright are editable fields.

  1. Hi Laura, I have the latest LR CC/6 and 5 Fundamentals & Output Vids (I also bought the previous version back in 2015).

    Have you considered or are you working on a separate Lightroom Mobile course? I realise you have some info in the Fundamentals course but now we are on V2.6 do you think there is enough to justify something a little more substantial and specific?

    • Hi Tony, Thank you for your purchases and for your interest in LR mobile training. Lightroom mobile changes too frequently and often to radically for it to be worthwhile for me to make video training for it. (Books are much easier to update than videos are.) I’d suggest seeing if Victoria Bampton still has her Lightroom mobile e-book available at

  2. Hi Laura,

    Any info on the Android 2.2.2. update or where I can go to find more info…
