Now that LRM has the ability to do HDR photos with the built in camera, it would be nice to also be able to produce HDR images with imported photos.  It should be fairly easy to implement since the coding is already done for the camera.

I believe it’s not possible on my iPad to merge three images taken on my mirrorless camera? I don’t have CC subscription but would pay for it straight away if it was possible.Is this planned to be put in for the future?

It isn't there yet... You can do it on your computer, but not in Mobile yet. It would be a nice add-in though. Now, there are other apps such as Affinity Photo that can, but there isn't a round-trip for that.

Hoping Adobe would consider adding photo merge feature inclusive of both panorama and HDR for Lightroom mobile as this would take landscape mobile editing for travelers to a higher level of ease and productivity.

I haven't had the greatest luck with merging to hdr using affinity, for some reason. It just never results in the detail I'm looking for. Also, I have not been able to reimport affinity merged hdr photos at 32-bit using either the .hdr or the .tiff export options. Can lightroom mobile support 32 bit?

Couldn't find the mobile app page but it would be amazing if you was able to add a Panoramic Stitch feature for Mobile. I am a on the go photographer and I am sure im not the only one who would appreciate this kind of feature to be added.

Need to at least be able to see stacks already created in Lightroom desktop.    I do  a  lot of HDR and HDR panorama and stacking the original photos and not having the ability to stack results in making the IOS version essentially unusable.   Way to many photos to wade through.  Also would love the ability to do native HDR and Pano's or at least export multiple photos at once to photoshop.

It will be great to merge DNG panoramas in the Lightroom for mobile, right after I imported all photos to iPad. Right now I have to merge photos to panoramas via Camera raw and then import them by Lightroom CC

This would be REALLY useful! Right now hdr is impossible without a desktop cpu. The only time i use desktop LRC is for merging hdr then import straight back to LR mobile. Workflow is a pita and out of the question when travelling

I too would like both the ability to make HDR images with RAW imports from my camera in LR Mobile CC, the ability to stitch Panoramas is also a needed feature on the mobile CC.

Same here, for both features. Panorama and HDRs. Please add it!

I'd be happy if they'd put in the desktop version of CC.  iPad would be nice too but not as essential.

Got too excited about the iPad Pro gen 3, and bought it without realizing LR Classic is not available (let alone Photoshop), and LR Mobile does not appear to have the ability to HDR Merge photos? 

If there isn't going to be a release of LR Classic for iPad Pro (we use local NAS storage and work with lots of photos), this would at least help with some of the architectural work we do.

Adobe won't release Lightroom classic for the iPad... They've developed this from the ground up for touchscreens and a fresh approach to the UI - which I really like. However I agree Adobe definitely need to release HDR merge for mobile and Lightroom CC desktop - fingers crossed it comes soon

Photo merge /HDR merge and automatic stacking after merging would be great!

Like a lot of other users already have, I’d like to push for the ability to merge photos into a panorama like the desktop version. Then I can truly kiss my laptop goodbye.

Is this even under consideration? It has been suggested a year ago and there was no official response yet. Excepted for the lack of stacks, I don’t see any technical limitation.

Indeed. The workflow is really bad, specially because Classic only does not sync folders, so one has to manually add the rendered HDR and Panos into the synced collection. Worse of all, it’s also impossible to automate this with smart collections as those are not synced either!

Additionally, you end up with a mix of originals (uploaded on mobile) and low res smart previews of panoramas, which kills its core purpose: higher resolution images.

Another nail in Classic-Mobile’s workflow

I read that Photoshop for iOS was coming in 2019. IPad Pro will have best functionality with the Apple Pencil. Won’t have everything to begin with, but it should simplify the workflow.

I Use a 2019 IPad Pro with Premium Lightroom CC on it. I neeeeed to Make HDR‘s out of the RAW‘s from Camera! Pay so much money and all the software is useless for my work 😞 Why cant you get the most out of the devices? I am shooting flats and buildings and my work is 90% done with High Quality HDR Pictures. And still need to work on my Mac just because this Function is missing. Also Tethered Shooting isn‘t available, antother Thing every photographer who’s using the Creative Cloud needs.

They will, eventually, implement this feature because they do have the technical knowledge to do it. The code is maybe already written somewhere.
But I do believe they have a specific roadmap to follow in order to spray out the new features in order to justify LR’s price.
