Lightroom CC: Ability to see what Album a photo is in

Can you add in a way to see what album(s) a photo is in. You can do this with classic CC, but not the new cloud CC.

I have LOADS of photos, and after the migration from classic, lots of them are not in albums and are now heaped into on big imported album (because I used my hard drive folders to organise things in Classic.

So, now I have a big tidy-up job on my hands.

Also, it would be great if you could find all photos not in an album.

+1. This is quite a hassle.

This would be a very helpful feature.  It is now very hard to catalog photos migrated from Lightroom Classic not doing which ones are already cataloged and into which algum

I am using Lightroom cc for managing my library of stock images and videos. The auto-tagging AI is brilliant and not only saves me time but provides me with inspiration when looking for the right asset for a project. However, I have 200000 assets and growing. I manage the libraries by keeping assets in an Album based on the source. I document the source of each image I use in a project for record keeping. In addition, for videos, I use the thumbnail, so I need to know the source (album) in order to more easily find the video file on my server. If the information tab on the full image showed in which album the asset was assigned, I would be able to manage my project documentation and in the case of videos, find the original video more easily.

Hi Adobe - Are you listening to this??

I would have assumed that something as simple as this to implement would have been included in one of the many updates you have released since I originally made the comment.


The whole experience is deeply frustrating. Here's another use case:

Last week I was looking for a particular group of pics that I had not named the album properly for (not fully migrated from the auto-import when I did the upgrade from Classic). So, I had no idea how to find the set of pics.

My first thought was to describe it to see if your AI would find any related pics. No luck.

In the end, I filtered on camera type and approx date, and I found some pics out of that particular group. At this point I thought I had it sorted. I figured a simple 'right click' on one of the pics would provide me with an option to 'go to album' or some such. There isn't. I got really annoyed that I couldn't find the album I was looking for. In the end I gave up. It's a shocking oversight.

+1 This lack of basic organizing feature is making me consider leaving Adobe... ridiculous

I'm starring the imported photos (one star), I then move them into an album and make them 5 star. Go back to all photos and search one star only and move the next batch to another folder and repeat. It's a work around but still time consuming - definitely need this "not in album" feature.

I think the reason why this isn't implemented is that you overestimate the ability of your AI and underestimate the OCD of your users and amount of time spent on sorting out things to _their_ liking.

Please give us the option, otherwise we may as well just rely on AI offered by Google/Apple.

It is interesting that LR Classic offers this feature but not the Cloud based LR CC!

I looked for this within a couple of minutes of using the new Lightroom CC.  It's pretty hard to organise your photos without this.

Even a simple 'Not in an album' filter would help a lot.

Agreed - I use a work-around similar to someone else's suggestion to use stars to note that photos are in albums.  It works for now but a simple filter as you suggested would be best.

With the August 2018 release of LrCC 1.5, Album Membership Information has now been implemented.

Yep, it's good Carissa. If we could filter (or a facet.. 'Album: none') to identify those orphans, photos not in an Album, that would be great also!

Hello, I think it would also be useful to create a collection of photos that are not part of any synchronized collection in Catalogue LR CLassic.

Argument, When the main catalog is the catalog of LR Classic, it would be easy to remove from the catalog LR CC all the photos not included in synced albums and thus lighten LR CC on the various devices, because in this case, I see the catalog LR CC as a secondary catalog for making presentations etc.

Agree. This is an essential improvement. Sorting photographs without the facility to see all the albums that a photo is in or the ability to see all photos that are not in any album is a nightmare I can do without.
