Teams - sharing Lightroom library

Community Beginner ,

I want to share my entire Lightroom library (all syned to Adobe Cloud) with multiple people in our company; I simply want a shared company LR library.  I converted from an individual plan to a Teams plan and purchased 2 "all apps" licenses.  Adobe sales is telling me that the libraary can be shared.  Adobe support is telling me that it can't be shared.  Support is telling me that the only way to share is to share individual albums.  Well, even in our small company, we have hundreds of albums in dozens of folders in a nice, clean hierarchy.  Sharing indidual folders isn't efficient or feassible.  I could share things 1 album at a time under my individual plan, so why pay a lot more of a collaborative business (Teams) plan?

 

Can someone please help?  I have spent several frustrating hours on phone calls with Adobe getting absolutely nowhere.  There has to be a way to share the Lightroom library. (And I'm talking about Lightroom, not Lightroom Classic.)

Hi @edmartin123 they are both correct - Creative Cloud Libraries can be shared. Lightroom Catalogs (Libraries) cannot be shared in the method you are asking. These are two different solutions.

Lightroom is a “single user” application.  It may well be that sales and support are talking about different “libraries”. I fear that support is right with their assumption.

 

The main difference between a Teams licence and an Individual licence is, how the licence is attributed (the plan administrator invites the user, and can also cancel the licence for a user) and managed (centralized payment, remote installation on managed computers, cloud space management, …).

I don't think this is possible either.

 

I created a feature request ages ago for Collaborative Libraries (which would

provide the closest experience) of you to want to Upvote that:
