Here's my pb: I shared several albums with my colleague who has free access to adobe creative cloud. He doesn't seem to be able to search for photos by keywords in the albums I shared with him. Is this feature not present on free accounts. Thanks for your feedback

Hi there, 

 

Lightroom shared albums do not have the option to search by keywords.

 

It would really help if you can share your feedback on this discussion: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/add-search-option-for-shared-albums

 

As this forum is monitored by our engineers and they will review it for future product development.

 

Thanks,

Akash

I think it is a strategy by Adobe. If you need to really cooperate and share with your team or clients you need to invest in a costly DAM solution by Adobe or another company.

No other solution, even an enterprise licence, let you look for shared assets by keywords, which makes lightroom useless for a real Teamwork.

Not being able to filter any image library by metatags renders it useless.

I am pretty sure this feature will never be implemented in the Adobe CC package. You need to look for alternative or pay.

I'd like to be proven wrong!

Cheers

I have the same issue. the main reason i was looking at Lightroom cc (or what ever it's called now) was to share a large ( (effectively my whole library)  which wont work well unless the people i share with can easily search on person, date, tags, location etc.   Any suggestions for an alternative to Adobe woudl be really appreciated to help me do this. 

 

I can also see how professionally this would be a very important feature for teams working on images together. 

 

Many thanks

Same issue. I've been hoping they'd implement this, for years. We're currently looking at other alternatives which now means we'll be getting rid of several Adobe licenses. Having multiple people be album administrators (with search and tag functions) would have changed the game. It's a real bummer but on to other things, I suppose.

Adobe has never made any coment on this.!

Question:
Anybody can search Adobe Stock (a huge commercial photo album in a way) with keywords,

why can't anybody search shared lighroom albums with keywords. (The exisiting function is simply disabled by Adobe)

I first Posted in 2020 but the developer at Adobe keep their head burried in the sand.
