We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
I am trying to maximise cloud sync with my workflow because i think that Adobe have provided some excellent features that really make life easy. however there are a couple of simple features that seem to be missing.
So after importing my images in lightroom classic i create a collection and sync it to the cloud. i then share the Adobe web link with my client and ask them to "like and comment" on the images that they want. Those likes then appear in lightroom classic and i know exactly which ones my clients want and they can comment on thinks like "we would like this 8 x 12 in a fame". The first niggle is that i cant filter on these likes and comments in lightroom classic, but as this is a lightroom CC forum let me move onto the main issue.
As i am out on the road a lot i use a laptop and want to work on my images when i am away from my server (where my catalog images are stored). The Adobe answer is Lightroom CC which is brilliant. i can work on all the images that are on my Cloud and even edit them in Photoshop while away from my server. That all syncs nicely back to my Lightroom classic catalog on my server.
However, working in lightroom CC, I cant see any of the 'likes & Comments' that my clients have entered so i dont know which ones to work on.
Are there some settings that i have missed?
No. However, you can go to Lightroom.adobe.com and get that information. Awkward, yes. But that's the way it is right now.
Thanks JimHess, at least I can end my search for an answer.
it seems like a logical feature so hopefully Adobe will include it in future updates.
thinking about it, my work around for now will be to make sure that I flag the images that my clients have 'liked' or 'commented' in Lightroom classic before I travel. then the flags will show up and can be filtered in Lightroom CC.
Looking at the options, it seems to be best to view them on Mobile at the moment (iOS at least) - Tap with two fingers in Grid View after you open an Album.
I was playing with Lightroom Web earlier and even with Show Badge Overlay On, they don’t show. The only way I could see that was by going into the individual photo.
thanks, I agree, its a bit clunky in Lightroom web but I can at least you can find the likes in each image. I have not used Lightroom web before but after posting in this forum I will be doing that more.
Almost 1.5 years later and still apparently no syncing workflow from Lightroom CC for Comments and Likes?? It seems that Adobe does not want to do this. What is the utility? Do your really expect us to buy tons of storage, keep all our raws in the cloud and only do our edits through lightroom.adobe.com?
you can sort images by “Last Comment Time” on Lightroom Classic
That solution forces me to create the album on my desktop. If I create the album in mobile, that album does not sync back to Classic. "Why Not?" is another ridiculous mystery. It's like using two completely different programs sometimes. They do not work well together, and I'm betting Adobe has no plans to keep developing Classica much longer....

Awkward? Are you make fun of us?
So why would you share a colletion, when it´s not possible to comment or view the comments in this app.
Is someone at Adobe using this app?
Seems to be the clown department?
I am very annoyed of the lack of this feature?
Why would something that essential not find it way in the final app?
I am speechless.
Yes, this is incredibly frustrating to not have such a simple feature already implemented.
The feature that was requested in the original post of this thread was implemented in June of this year. Likes and Comments are now accessible from all of the Lightroom apps, not just the LrWeb app. There's also a Notifications feature in all the apps to let the user know when new likes/comments have been made.
It's still not perfect, i.e. there's no way yet to filter likes and comments on a per album basis, nor separate them on a per customer basis either. But progress has been made, and hopefully more will follow in due course.
Thanks for the update Jim. I was commenting on the inability to filter likes and comments in Lightroom Classic, because when sending client proofs, there's often more than 50, sometimes up to 100 images in each album/collection, so you can see how it can be frustrating to not be able to filter the likes.
Also, is there going to be a way for clients to NOT have to create an Adobe ID in order to view and comment/like proofs or shared albums?
Classic at least has the "Last Comment Time" sort order, which at least lets you group all the images with comments/likes together. Each image with an unread commen/like will have a yellow badge in the grid, and the collection in the Collections Panel will laso have a yellow badge to indicate unread comments/likes. By no means perfect, but a lot better than nothing.
However, whilst I'm optimistic that improvements in the viewing/filtering in the cloud apps will happen eventually, I'd be a bit more pessimistic that any improvements will appear in Classic.
Regarding the Adobe ID requirement for comments/likes, that has been discussed with Adobe countless times, but they haven't shifted yet, so don't get your hopes up. To be honest, I've never been certain why this is an issue, it seems standard requirement for most (all) social media sites these days....
A professional needs to be able to edit the files the client selects in CLASSIC not Web or LR CC. Most of the images require editing on Photoshop as well as in Lightroom Classic and that requires Classic. Client Proofing is done by professionals. Classic is for professionals. Not having the ability to filter selections and see their comments in Classic seems like a fundemental flaw is this software and in my opinion, NEEDS TO BE FIXED! Proofing is fundemental to every single professional on the planet. Every single one. To say that you are pessimisic about this drives me nuts.
There's no point in venting at me, I'm just a frustrated user like yourself. I'm only pessimistic because Adobe have consistently said in that past that they do not intend to develop Classic's syncing capabilities with the cloud any further, and so far they've been true to that. Of course things could change, and I hope my pessimism eventually proves to be unfounded. In the meantime, you might want to think about expressing your views directly to Adobe, though I'd suggest you wait a day or two as it appears that the two Adobe communities (this user-to-user forum and the official Adobe feedback site) are in the process of being merged.
I was trying to figure this out for myself and found your question hoping someone had the answer. I was sad there isn't an obvious way to sort by likes in the filters, but I discovered if you click on the synced album under collections, it pops up to let you review comments. This will place all images with likes and comments at the top.
I do not see this for comments made through client proofing. They show up in LR CC and on LR web, but NOT in Classic. What am I missing?
I don't think you're missing anything. It seems to me from testing this that comments made by the user when they are viewing the album in "proof mode" are not being associated directly with the images (though comments made in normal album viewing mode do flow back to Classic). Even looking at the album within LrWeb using either of the two grid views or the Display mode the comments are not visible, they can only be seen when using the proofing tab. But LrDesktop DOES show the "proofing comments", so I suspect there's a bug in the system, which I'll report to Adobe.
