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.

This feature request applies to Lightroom Ecosystem but has posts included for legacy Ligthroom Classic requests regarding the same topic.

Agreed that LRCC for Desktop doesn't support Comments and Likes, but they should still be visible in the LRCC web app when browsing through the images with the Activity panel open. LRCC for iOS is probably the best app to use, as one of the info overlays (two-finger tap in grid view) will display Comments and Likes icons on the thumbnails, and the individual comments can be viewed using the Activity loupe view.

I suggest to add the filter by "heart" status.
When you share a collection another user can put a like using the "heart" icon.

Now it seems not possible to filter only by "heart" (not by comment) so I suggest an easy way to have a selection of the "hearted" photos: introduce a filter by "heart" satus: Pressed or not.

Filter by heart status (in Albums, All Photos... everywhere!) would be great!

How would you know who made the comment if they didn't have an adobe ID?

Other services let people like and comment without being logged in -- they typically ask for a name and/or email address. I use that with Zenfolio and works fine for my needs -- my commenters enter their first name.

I recently sent the web gallery from one of my lightroom albums directly to a client (around 500 photos). The client then marked the photos which they wanted to see edited as favorite (via the small heart button in the corner). Back in Lightroom I saw which photos had a comment or were marked favorite (genius!), but there was no way to filter those images. So I had to go through all 500 pictures, looking for the ones that got a comment and hope i did not miss one.

I am sure this would be super easy to implement because it is only really a sort function, and it would complement this great feature of easy album sharing and make it more interesting for businesses who need to save time.

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.

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?

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....

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.
