Hello! 

 

I opened my Lightroom app on my iphone yesterday and noticed many of my albums filled with edited photos disappeared! I checked the app store and an update was done yesterday and I feel that was the cause of the disappearances. Funny enough though, the pictures do not even appear in the "all photos" category, but pictures dating back to december 2019 do! 

Can anyone help me retrieve these pictures? We are talking hours of work completely wiped - I'm at a loss for words. I tried to log out and log back in, but to no avail. I was too scared to delete the app completely from my phone, in case it wipes all the data, leaving all my content lost.

 

It may also be worth mentionning here that I only have the Lightroom app on mobile. I ended my subscription last year for Lightroom Classic on my macbook. 

 

Thanks in advance!

I doubt if you would have much luck, but you can try this:

Alternatively, do you back up to iCloud, and if so, one option could be to wipe your device and restore from a backup previous to the Lightroom 5.4.0 Update, which I think was August 18th?

This though may not be as smooth as it sounds and could lead to other non-Lightroom issues.

Or maybe use a spare device and restore from an old iCloud back up and see if that works?
