P: Filter for Likes and Comments

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hence my use of the word Ecosystem 😉 

This feature request was made for both Classic and the Ecosystem. The support added was for Lightroom Desktop/Mobile.

Ah, I guess the original request has changed its meaning over the years. When I first submitted it six years ago, it was solely about providing more features in what is now called LR Classic.

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....

At Lightroom people can really be creative and enjoy the world of photo editing and manipulation . 

So my suggestion is to recreate / add some features like other social media platforms the features are as follows:-

1.Feature to add multiple images in a single post.

2. Acess to notification when someone likes, follows instantaneously.

3. Add feature of Comment to be given on any of the post in discover .

4. Verification badge on profile for getting a number of followers or likes .

That's all are my suggestions for making Adobe Lightroom a better platform that provides better experience .

Eagerly waiting for these features 😊

Right now it seems there is no way to easily find favorited / commented on photos in shared albums in Lightroom CC/Desktop.  This can be done in LR Classic (in a round about way with sort by last comment date) but the fact there is no way to do this in CC/Web seems like a huge omission, especially for people who don't use or want to use Classic. 

In fact, the album sharing side of LR seems to be missing a huge number of potential features to make it amazingly useful, and yet nothing has really changed in the last couple of versions.  I'm hoping that some updates are forthcoming in future versions.

I'm told that this forum is monitored by Adobe/LR staff, and I'm sure that this suggestion will be given a huge amount of weight.

It would be very helpful to be able to search for photos that have comments attached to them. If you have a lot of photos in an album, it's time consuming to have to skim through each photo to find a small number with a comment.

My workflow has been severely hampered by not having an option to separate "hearted" or liked photos in a Shard album. Why has this not been addressed? Doesn't anyone share large Albums with clients and so they can choose their favorites?

Can we please get a fix to view the photos in our collection that have likes and comments from a shared collection.   I'd like to send a collection to a client and have them select the photos they like before editing.

Looking at this post it is not possible and needs to be implemented soon.

https://www.lightroomqueen.com/community/threads/filter-liked-favourited-photos.39834/post-1263342

Also noted that a 'long standing bug' has been identified that does not allow the photos to be sorted by comment time via the menu bar.  https://www.lightroomqueen.com/community/threads/filter-liked-favourited-photos.39834/post-1263357

How are we to use Lightroom to share a collection with a client or colleague and get feedback easily viewable?

Thanks for fixing this bug and adding this basic sorting feature.

As described in that thread, you can sort a shared collection (but just one shared collection at a time) by Last Comment Time.  Photos with recent likes and comments will be at the top, so at least you can find them fairly easily.
