I have been using Lightroom on my iPhone since last summer, I bought presets for it and had so many pictures on it. I decided to try the one week free trial and ever since then everything disappeared. I lost all of my pictures, cannot find any of my many presets, and I don't know what to do. I deleted the app, re-signed into my account, even went on my laptop to try and find these missing pictures and presets. I am so upset, I use these presets for my Instagram and I don't want to have to pay for all of them again.

Hi Greule!

 

I just had same issue today with my Lightroom Mobile.

I've decided to sign up the trial version for a week while I was editing a picture.
It was ok, till the moment that I've tried to use a tool and the app closed.

Then, I opened the app again and there was a question if I would like to sync my camera roll with the app automatically, I chosen not.

So the app opened with 0 albums, 0 presets, etc.

 

Please help me to solve it 🙏🏼

Thank you,

Alecyr Araujo

Can I have the same information. The same thing just happened to my account. I have been using the free light room for a year. Decided that the extra tools in the paid version might be worth the $4.99/month. However, my $60 worth of presets and all my photos disappeared from the app. It was like I was starting a new account. I canceled the subscription in hopes that everything would appear again however, no such luck.

Hello

We are investigating possible causes for this issue. 

 

Please do not uninstall the app.  Images are very likely still in the app cache, but if the app gets deleted then images inside the app also get deleted.  Anything not yet synced could be lost unless you have the images somewhere else like your camera roll, or a backup.

 

As a next step, please make a full backup of the affected device. This will preserve the app and files that still exist in it.  Any files that are not yet synced to cloud storage may only exist in the app unless you have a separate backup.

 

These pages describe how to use iTunes or Mac OS Finder file sharing to retrieve original images out of the Lightroom iOS app cache.. Please see if this advice can help you recover your original images:

iTunes: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/recover-lightroom-mobile-photos-itunes-file-sharing.html 

Mac OS Finder: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT210598  

 

Any files that can be recovered will need to be reimported.  Unfortunately, this recovery process can not restore previous edits or presets.  Presets that were installed before will need to be re-installed or set up again.

 

We hope advice here helps you recover images.

Hi!

I have the same problem - started my free trial today, and all of my photos + presets are gone. The app shows 9GB of cache, but nothing is showing in the app itself. I am signed in under the same login as I was before. All content was synced and backed up (as it was shown int the app). I only use Lightroom on my Iphone.
I do not have a recent backup of my device. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to restore the content. 

Have a great day, 
Karina

Hello @Mikey25512761qwjx 

We need more info to begin to help you.  On what devices are you running Lightroom?  Is the issue that you activated a 7-day trial on one device, and your content disappeared on the same device, or another device that was signed into the same account?  More details like this, and about your specific steps/workflow might help us understand what happened.

Did you start the 7-day trial on the mobile app, or LR desktop?

On Mobile, are you using iOS and Android?

Thank you.  I asked because it wasn't clear to me how your trial got start.  Usually a Lightroom Mobile trial on Android shows as a subscription with the first 7 days free, and I saw no subscription for your account.

 

If you sign into your account in a web browser at lightroom.adobe.com, do you see your photos there?

If you sign into your account in a web browser at https://lightroom.adobe.com/  do you see your photos there?  The server team says you do have files uploaded and should be able to see them (both in our web app and also in the LR Android app).

 

Another way it *might* be possible to access files is to explore what you can copy out of the application cache.  See if you can recover any images from this folder in device internal storage:
Android/data/com.adobe.lrmobile/files/carouselDocuments/

Hi,

 

Can you provide some more details so that the community may be able to help you...

 

Did you have the free app before accepting the trial? 
Did you have a back up of the device?

What format where the presets in when you purchased them?

Can you see any photos or presets at 

http://lightroom.adobe.com

 

Unfortunately deleting the app probably discarded everything if you did not have any kind of subscription.

Hi Guido, 

 

Wonder if you can help?

I'm trying to ascertain when the free version turns into a trial? 

Is it a trial when you initially download the app?

Or is after a certain time?

Or a customer accepting a trial pop up?

 

Also what happens to photos and presets than sync to the Cloud if a trial is accepted but a plan not then subscribed to?

 

Thanks

I alrady had a look  and pinged madimarie1 privately. What I noticed is that it seems like  the subsctiption was applied to a  to a different adobe-id and not to the free Lr version with the presets. Still wating for confirmation from madimarie1

Since the app was deleted the free-app-data is no longer preserved and therefore please double-check if you have an iOS back-up from where you could possibly restore. Hope this helps- Guido/ Lr Mobile QE

Hello! I had the same exact thing happpen to me. I've been using the free version for a few years, but I decided to try a free 7 day trial of the desktop version. It was taking a long time to download, so I went to "manage subscription" and cancelled. Photos are now hidden on my iphone and it is acting like I'll need to pay the 4.99 iphone app fee to access them again. I also have many purchased presets and photos on that account, but I know that I only had the free version before. Please help! Thanks!

Hi Natalie5FAA .

I'v just checked our server-side logging and it looks to me that you have 2 adobe-ids in use. One as free and the other with the subscription. Could that be? I'm sending you more info via a private message. - Guido/ Lr Mobile QE
