All the other overlays as well. And zooming into the image while in crop mode would be nice also

The Golden Spirals crop overlay was implemented in LR a number of years ago.

When using the crop tool in Lightroom Classic CC and Photoshop CC you can choose from a selection of composition overlays:

- Rule of thirds
- Grid
- Diagonal
- Triangle
- Golden ratio
- Golden spiral

I would really like to see these in Lightroom CC and mobile as well.

Please add additional crop overlays beyond the rule of thirds overlay, similar to what is available in Lightroom Classic CC. This would help immensely when trying to crop for better composition.

I thought those tools was standard in the new CC, but unfortunately I have bought the wrong version 😞

Please introduce crop overlay guides in CC. They are fundamentals of photography, and to only have rule of thirds is very limiting. Golden Ratio, Diagonals etc all missing....

This is exactly what I am looking for. Adding the different grids as part of the crop tool doesn't sound like a massive undertaking but it would be soooooo good as a compositional tool

At first I thought I wasn't looking at the correct tutorials but now it's obvious that CC really does only have thirds as a crop overlay with no others available. If anything Adobe should be on top of their game with their software and a small thing like this shouldn't be farfetched to already be available as an option from the beginning.
Quite frustrating to have to install Classic just to be able to use a simple feature like this.

Yes those overlays are kinda important for some photographers and all in all really useful... It's a shame they are taking so long to implement them

This is a feature in normal Lightroom. Please can it be added to Mobile? I want to use a big iPad Pro to edit my photos but this is one tool I am missing from the regular software. It also doesn't appear of Lightroom Desktop.

Would love a different set of cropping overlays on Lightroom mobile. Specifically one to hone in on the center of the photo instead of just having the rule of thirds grid.

The crop overlay when editing in Lightroom mobile (Android, iOS) appears to only allow the "Rule of Thirds" overlay; It's limited. Is it possible to switch overlays? Triangles, Golden Rule, etc?

Please add these overlais to Mobile version of Lightroom! And moreover. Please make the Mobile version as good as full CC version. More people start to use their iPads and other mobile devises as their prime gear for editing. It feels so bad the mobile versions are so limited.

Very simple. I would like a rule of thirds, golden ratio, etc. set of overlays for cropping. I can get this in the Apple Photos app. It seems weird that my flow on mobile is to take photos off my camera, load into Apple Photos to crop, and then load into Lightroom. Shouldn't Lightroom offer this in the first place?

As an iPad Pro user of Lightroom Mobile, and a photographer would like to have the same overlays found on the desktop experience. For example, I'd love the crop overlay of Golden Ratio, Golden Spiral, thirds, etc. This will expand and support my editing style.
