Lightroom should support jp2 if Photoshop does.

 Photoshop supports/saves jp2000 s; Lightroom should as well. Simple as that.

I don't need any editing functions, just to import and share them in a catalog.

Dang, i/Photo handles them, which we used as a pitiful substitute until the app no longer supported pdf.

 

jp2 is standard in most digital archives/libraries, so Lightroom support or a shareware plug-in would be much appreciated.  BTW: if you've never come across the format you're missing out on millions of high-res, copyright-free materials. Check out archive.org and you'll be advocating big time.

First, we're not Adobe, we can't add features to the software. You have to submit a feature request to Adobe.

 

The philosophy I have heard people from Adobe talk about (in Adobe videos) is that Lightroom Classic is for photos that come out of a camera (and common derivative files like TIF), and I don't think jpeg2000 files come out of any camera on the market today. So if that's correct, there's really no chance of them adding jpeg2000 support.

 

Photoshop has always supported non-camera formats. Which is entirely a different philosophy.

If you're curious enough, you can try this rather dated Windows only plugin (Jpeg2000 Reader for Adobe® Lightroom)

I've never tried it so I've no idea if it works. If you do, let us know how it goes.
