Under consideration

Lightroom Classic & Ecosystem: Better support for comments and likes, in ALL publish services

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.

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.

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.

Hi! I would love a feature where you could sort photos by likes. It was puke help my work because then I can share an album for example after a wedding. And the couple could like the photos they like. If I then could sort them after likes it would make it easy to work with just the photos that have been liked.

It would be helpful if I could create a smart collection that matched images in a collection that had LIKES, ideally sorted on the total number of LIKES.

Example: I have uploaded 100 images to an Adobe Cloud album and made Comments active. A panel of 20 users review the images online and click LIKE for their top 10. A Smart Collection would be useful to identify and sort the images with the top number of LIKES.

It would be even better if each user could score all images or rank their top 10 and we could accumulate the total score for each image

BTW the yellow flag on my collection (in Classic) does not appear when there are comments. (update, the yellow flag does appear when also Tech preview Proofing is switched on.) This might be because I have manually uploaded the images to the album so my album has synced into a new collection in my FROM LIGHTROOM collection set. It would be helpful to have an indication when new comments or LIKES have been added.

I can filter file names and all kinds of data, but I can't filter files by text in their comments they received from a shared online album, that would be really useful.
