Yes, editing in landscape was removed from iPhone.  I believe the decision was informed by data showing low editing use in landscape orientation. 

[Edit: I was mistaken, and crossed out my original statement above now that the team has corrected me.] 

 

Lightroom iOS's Edit UI is being revised, and lack of edit while in landscape is a matter of the implementation not being complete yet.  Until this is implemented, one can still rotate your phone to see the image (and current edits) full screen,

If you would like to see it added back, please write up a new post in the Ideas section of this forum, so that other users can vote on your suggestion and show interest to Lightroom Product Mgmt.

@Charlie.D Isn't this already in the "ideas" section? If not, can you link directly to where you're referring?

The idea should be titled "don't remove useful features".

and as well the option to easily apply the editing of a previous photo with one click to the next one is right now more clicks away.

Also locking the aspect ratio is now two more clicks away from the crop tool. 

 

To get to curves you need to scroll up on the phone (previously directly available).

 

Feels like no one is really editing photos to test this stuff before release.

This is a joke, right? The app is useless without horizontal rate, info or edit mode. Please revert the UI to 8.5 or whatever it was.

Con la ultima actualización no se pueden editar las fotos en el iPhone en horizontal. Al girar el teléfono no aparecen las herramientas de edición, solo se puede ver la foto. Editar en el iPhone en vertical es inútil por el tamaño de la foto. Espero una solución en la próxima actualización. Gracias

This is such an issue! I'm ready to stop paying for this app if they don't restore this feature. They should have never removed it to begin with.

In case Adobe doesn't fix their mistake, does anyone have recommendations for another editing app for the iPhone?

Should I put some of my devices in Landscape and keep them active all day for the statistic so you don't remove it in Android too? I dont even have a portrait stand for my tablet.

Removing this option was a terrible idea, this has just made editing on a phone 10 times more difficult. Why would you want to waste 50% of your viewing options on an already small screen.

I edit 99% of my photos in LR on an iPad or iPhone. 90% iPhone. Being able to edit in landscape mode is functionality I can't understand why it would be removed.

Does anyone else now see a "Ligtroom Team Photos" folder in their root? Someone should get fired for this release tbh. Gimme back my landscape eduting option that I am paying for.

 

else, we should go with that new AI editing app - similar to lightroom

Unfortunately, I can no longer show information in horizontal view on iPhone 11 (iOS version 17.0.3). I would like to be able to at least see the stars and flags again and give ratings. In general, the Lightroom mobile app has become much more cluttered than previous versions. Can't you change it back to the old design?

 

Leider kann ich in der horizontalen Ansicht am iPhone 11 (iOS-Version 17.0.3) keine Informationen mehr einblenden lassen. Ich möchte da mindestens wieder die Sterne und Flaggen sehen und Bewertungen geben können. Allgemein ist die Lightroom mobile App viel unübersichtlicher geworden als die früheren Versionen. Könnt ihr das nicht wieder zum alten Design ändern?

Please solve this issue. It really doesnt make sense to remove this function. Maybe it would make sense to keep it as an option somewhere in the menu to enable or disable the editing in landscape, but completely removing it really really doesnt make sense. I cannot stress enough how annoying this is. I have other issues with the new update! For years and years this app blew my mind by how much better it kept getting. Now its getting worse. Please, please listen to the users. I dont wanna leave Adobe but if this continues i have no other option
