Lightroom Classic & Ecosystem: Better support for comments and likes, in ALL publish services

Now that Adobe is committing to LR Mobile, it would be great if LR had better support for comments and likes:

- Ability to filter and search in smart collections for comments and likes. The Sort: Last Comment Time is helpful but not sufficient -- it only works with collections synced with LR Cloud, and you can only sort one collection at time (huh??).

- The same support for other publish services like Flickr that also sync user comments. Why did Adobe implement Last Comment Time and comment notifications just for LR Mobile? The underlying structure is already there to implement it for the other services as well. These other services have a diversity of features that many users find valuable and that are unlikely to ever appear in LR Mobile, so asking them to switch to LR Mobile just to get the trivial ability to sort by comment time is frustrating.

- SDK access to the comments and likes, so that plugins can manipulate that metadata just like they have the ability to manipulate other metadata. Just providing SDK access would let plugin developers provide the other functionality.

See the Any Comment plugin for the ability to filter and search by comments and likes (favorites), across all publishing services (not just LR CC) and across multiple collections.  Unfortunately, it's not nearly as convenient as having that functionality built-in to LR.

Why do you make a product that allows clients to favorite photos but doesn't allow the photographer to filter by favourite?

Image in you have 2,000 photos from a 5 day, 200 person event, and your client used the favorite feature to pick their faves but now you can't filter by faves?

Yeah... thanks Adobe.

I'm surprised we even need to be asking for this!!!

The best workaround I have is to sort by most recent comments, which you can do and this at least gets them next to each other including the 'hearted' ones.  Then I add a colour attribute to the image which you can then filter by.

But this feature has so much potential, c'mon Adobe!!!

Philip,
Thank you so much for your reply. Really. I just poked around LR desktop (mac) and web and cannot find any way to even filter by comments.
Are you sure such a feature exists? If so, where?
Much thanks,
- Alexander

Hi Alexander!
Nope you can't filter by comment. But you can 'sort' by comment.
If you sort by 'last comment time' they will all be next to each other, then you can easily select them all and assign a colour label which you can then sort by. For example I use yellow for all photos that have a comment or like. I've attached an image too. One thing worth noting is that if you remove them from the collection they lose thier comments.

"But you can 'sort' by comment."

Note that you can only sort by Last Comment Time if you have exactly one synced collection selected.  If you select more than one synced collection, or non-synced collections or folders, then bizarrely, LR won't show Last Comment Time as an option.

If you only have a couple of synced collections, then sorting by Last Comment Time is a reasonable workaround. But if you have lots of synced collections and lots of likes/favorites and comments, you might consider the Any Comment plugin.

Exactly. Why allowing clients to favorite photos when there's no way to filter just those photos? Adobe takes our money but does nothing to put those resources to good use. This is bizarre.

What's adding to the annoyance of this bad, bad, BAD user experience is that you have to wait FIVE seconds for the yellow "new" comment added highlight to dismiss. So when you go through dozens and hundreds and thousands of liked photos just to get them marked as not-new it takes tens to hours of extra time and fking makes you mad.

Adobe likes to brag about their quarterly profits but I'd like them listening to us.

Really wish this feature would be implemented soon. I'm a big fan of Lightroom but at the moment the proofing process with my clients is painful and looks quite amateur. 

In my current use of Lightroom it's the only feature I sincerely regret is missing.

The Any Comment plugin makes comments and likes searchable within LR. It's not nearly as convenient as if the feature were built-in, but it's much better than nothing.

I saw your previous comments many times John 🙂 Unfortunately unless I'm mistaken plugins are not supported by Lightroom CC. They only work with Lightroom Classic.

Oh, sorry, I didn't realize the feature request had been re-tagged to include Lightroom as well as Lightroom Classic (the name "Lightroom CC" is no longer used by Adobe).  You are of course correct, Lightroom does not support plugins.

When syncing your Lightroom catalog please add a feature in the library module as well as in the mobile version of Lightroom (at least Tablets) to be able to view, sort, and filter photos that have been favorited using the heart button on the online public gallery. Also, expanded options for sorting by comments across all Lightroom desktop and mobile software would also be important. It will be especially appreciated if, beyond the above, the photographer can also view, isolate, filter, or sort images that have been favorited or commented on by one specific user. Example: Client's friends and family view the shared gallery and favorite and comment on photos inside that gallery. I want to be able to filter, sort and view only images that have likes on them or comments. Additionally, if the client has favorited 100 photos for her album choices I would like to be able to filter out every other user's favorites so that I may easily see, isolate, filter, and sort only that images my client wants for their album.

To use the share function effectively we would need the capability to see likes and comments in the desktop app. When showing clients albums, they can comment and like but we can only see this on lightroom mobile.

When anyone comments on or favorites photos in my shared galleries, I receive notifications on my iPhone and iPad, but when I tap on the notifications to view the the comments or favorited photos, Lightroom opens, but it doesn't take me to where I can view the feedback, and I don't know how to manually navigate to see them.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but I think the improvements to shared albums are for Lightroom Cloud, not Lightroom Classic?

It is a mistake to think "the cloud is the future for everyone in every situation". That is linear thinking, not always the best. It's like "soon all planes will be supersonic", and you know what happened there! "Work locally, save globally" is the best advice (that I gave for 25 years of Mac IT Systems & Server support). The cloud will NEVER be fast enough for ever increasing size files in Photoshop/Lightroom, etc.
