Surprised there is no red eye removal (that I can find) in the new Lightroom CC. Am I just missing something?

Hi everyone, thanks for all the feedback.  We do intend to implement a red-eye removal feature in Lightroom at some point in the future.  We do not yet have a specific release date planned.

Thanks,
Ben

This post is from ONE YEAR AGO - and the Red Eye Removal Tool hasn't been added back!  What is the roadmap for features to be re-added to acheive parity with Lightroom 6.0?   Especially Red Eye Removal and HDR processing?

Thanks.

The radial gradient work around worked. Set the exposure to 0. No more red eye. Not as good as a the red eye tool. But it works.

Just signed up for LR CC, only to discover that Red Eye removal functionality is non-existent. Please Adobe add it .. it is essential (to me).

Agreed! Red eye's been around for awhile now and is probably one of the most common edits. Just don't see any reason to not have it.

You may be right that they didn't drop anything from the new cloud based version of Lightroom but no red eye removal is a basic function of most free photo editor apps and a massive oversight for an app like Lightroom. Clearly the push for cloud based services is into the mobile marketplace and a larger (amateur and casual photographer) market so missing red eye is baffling at best. Especially since it has been over a year and several updates since this and posts similar to it have appeared on these forums. Wake up Adobe!

Here is another vote for a red eye removal tool.   I can't believe that I either have to pay an extra $10 per month or dump the cloud based service.

You've asked about Lightroom CC but posted in the Lightroom Classic CC forum. Two totally different software apps.

I assume you're using Classic CC.

There's a Red Eye Correction Tool in the Classic CC Develop module.

There is no red eye reduction available in Lightroom CC. As already said, in Classic you can do it (albeit very poorly), but not in Lightroom CC. If you need it, go to Lightroom CC: Please add red eye removal | Photoshop Family Customer Community  and add your vote/comment.

I should imagine this is something Adobe will add to LRCC in a future update. Artificial intelligence based upon millions of machine learning data sets could possibly fix red eye automatically.

Indeed. It knows already how to find faces (although it has to do this in the cloud) and should be able to automatically detect the eyes and place a red eye target on them.

Two years and counting - still no red eye removal in Lightroom CC cloud?
Yet, we just got an esoteric texture smoothing feature in the latest May 2019 update?

Very disappointed that Adobe does not have an ongoing "slog through until you do it" plan to rapidly get Lightroom CC cloud feature parity with existing Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC.

I understand re-writing a product from scratch doesn't always get feature parity on first release, but two-years on and straightforward, but extremely useful feature like red eye removal is still missing?

Probably falling on deaf ears, but Adobe should be working hard and fast to reward those of us willing to commit to a cloud-first/cloud-only subscription model for Adobe professional tools.

Sure, there are folks that will gripe forever about the subscription versus one-time licensing, or desktop versus cloud, but how about at least removing the technical excuses that are easy for users throw up as rationale to cling to the old way?

As a new convert to Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC, having used Imac Photos editing up till now, I am bemused at the lack of red-eye removal tool. It may be the case that the majority of photographers who use this software are so competent that they never have an issue with red-eye. I am not in this category sadly and need red-eye removal support. If it is included in the free Photos Mac app, then why is it not included in the monthly subscription LightroomCC?

I have been a long time Lightroom user since Lightroom Classic version 3.  I am also a senior software engineer.  I understand the technical challenges associated with adding red eye removal to the CC product.  You obviously already have the algorithm, because that worked beautifully in LR Classic.  I have to believe that the issue is deciding how you are going to design the User Interface for that given you have to support it on the desktop, tablets, phones, etc.  The desktop workflow for red eye removal could be similar for CC desktop as it is for LR Classic, but that clearly will not work for mobile devices since you have to rely on "touch" as opposed to "mouse click" to perform the needed steps to complete the task.

My statement and request here is why not just give us the feature on desktop and just not provide it on mobile?  At least we can edit our photos with this essential feature somewhere. Right now, I find myself having to first open the photo in a non-Adobe application and fix the red eye and then bring the photo into Lightroom and continue my editing.  This is a terrible workflow.  

Again, please just give us the red eye removal on the desktop flavor of CC and we can await a time where your UI/UX people can figure out how to accomplish this task on mobile!

The mobile UI should be a slam dunk.  there are many other mobile apps that have a simple UI for red eye removal.
That is simply not even a palatable excuse, but I'll agree at least give us red eye removal in the desktop CC app.
I too have a very awkward workflow of using an external app which makes me curse every time I have to do it.
