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

I am going to add my void to this voice to this thread on the lack of a red eye removal tool.  It is a basic feature in almost any photo editing software package I have used for many years.  I see examples on the web where folks can do this in Lightroom Classic but now we are unable to purchase classic  now because Adobe wants to force us to subscription model.  I am new to Lightroom and this seems like a basic feature not to have available.  Seems like a simple thing to add to the healing tool set.  You have the basic software to do this in previous tools. I am dubious about subscription models to begin with.  If I don't see a red eye removal tool in the future, I will probably drop Lightroom and move onto something else.  I would not have purchased Lightroom in the first place if I knew it was missing this feature.  I am going to write a review in the App Store to indicate this.  Thanks for listening.

Can we get red eye removal on Lightroom cloud? It is a very simple and obvious missing feature in this otherwise great program.

Hi,

 

We currently do not have a Red eye removal tool in Lightroom. You can add your vote to the feature request to include this tool in Lightroom here: https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/lightroom-desktop-cloudbased/lightroom-desktop-please-a...

 

You can also follow the thread of updates related to the developments on this feature request.

 

I was able to find a Youtube video suggesting a work around on how you can achieve ed eye removal in Lightroom. You can check out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAz5x4tYtao

 

Hope this method helps you in achieving the result to some extent.

Regards,

Nikunj

@benjamin_warde

Could you at least explain the intended/opinionated way you would accomplish this under the current feature set??  I guess some official guides right from the Product Managers on what is the current ideation of how the Lightroom cloud apps are supposed to be used will be of great benefit to us users wishing to use it really. For now it's frustration after frustration.

I've just found a relatively easy solution:

1. (First time only) On mobile, you install Photoshop Express and login with your Adobe Account Id.

2. From Lightroom on your mobile device, share the image to Photoshop Express

3. Use Photoshop Express function to remove the red eye or the pet eye as needed

4. Click (touch) next and share back to Lightroom. 

5. You will find the image on the recently added section from where you could add it to the albums as needed, and you can then delete the original photo, or keep in the catalog it but remove from the albums where you add the fixed one.

Although it has a few steps, it works quite well.

I find a really pitty that Adobe Product Management Team do not release guides on how they "think" the product is intended to be used, so easy tasks such as red eye removal could be solved. Even if the solution involves another tool, I'd rather prefer to know it beforehand than having to find a circumvention myself which could be far from optimal.

@martyn_williams_jd0oga3s57gp6 Funny thing is that this is already developed in Photoshop Express... Granted it might be a destructive edit, but I can easily think of a non-destructive way of doing it (e.g. metadating the edit).

Bonjour, 

 

Sur Lightroom 4.4 (version mobile ou ordinateur), comment puis-je corriger les yeux rouges d'un sujet ? Le site adobe explique pour la version Classic, mais pas la version avec abonnement. 

Merci ! 

 

Please, how can I put right the red eyes of a subject from Mobile / Computer Lightroom 4.4 (version with a subcription per month)? 

Regards,

Is it possible that in 2021, Adobe still has not provided a red eye removal feature in the new version (cloud version, non-classic version or what ever you want to call it)?  That is hard to imagine, but I cannot find it any where.  

 

Does anyone know?  I am really trying not to go back to classic, I love the workflow, but I keep hitting road blocks.

Thank you for the update, it is good to hear that it is planned.

Can you please share any information regarding the timing? Does "planned" mean "planned to develop" or really planned to implement soon?

Hello everyone, 

 

I have been trying to locate where the red eye reduction tool is in the latest version of Lightroom, however I  cannot find it. Is this function removed? Because it used to be available in the develop panel but since there are a lot of changes made to Lightroom I don't see it in the develop panel or any other panel for that matter. If you know where it is or whether it is removed please let me now because then I can stop looking for it.

Hi
Despite numerous complaints, adobe have proven conclusively they do not care about their users. They basically misled us a year or two ago saying it was coming. They launched a subscription cloud model with a product that was Inferior to the desktop model and now they have grabbed out cash have said get stuffed to the many users who have asked for the correction of this oversight.
All we want is a product that does what it said it does in the marketing bullsh*t. Four years and waiting…but not believing them anymore.

Regards
Martyn
