Add this app to your lists
View, rate and label your RAW photos ready for importing into Adobe Lightroom 3/4 and Photoshop Elements. Supports most RAW formats.

Rate images from your DSLR on your tablet or phone.

The rating information is saved with the image, and is automatically applied to the image when it is imported into Lightroom/Photoshop Elements.

Note: Lightroom will not import metadata from a sidecar file for jpegs and DNG, therefore your ratings/labels won't appear in Lightroom. A free version (Android Photo Review Lite) is available for you to test before purchasing this app.

If you have problems, please contact me and I will work with you to try and fix any problems that you are having.

Save time by rating your raw photos on site during the shoot, and then import the photos with ratings into Lightroom when you get back to the office.

If you have raw photo files that can't be processed, email me a couple and I will try to add support for them in the app. Please contact me if you are having problems rather than just giving my app a 1 star rating. I can't help you if you don't get in touch.

Getting started:
Use the "Config" button (Hammer and Spanner) to configure select the folder with the images you want to view/rate.

The folder needs to be writeable, and should be under "/mnt", "/sdcard" "/removable" or start with "/usb".

2. Keep pressing the back button to exit
3. Long press of back button

Image Preview:
Photos in the source folder are displayed on the main screen.
• The main photo can be changed by dragging the gallery control (looks a bit like a film strip) or by swiping left/right.
• Tap image to view full screen.
