Lightroom CC: Please add face recognition

I am disappointed that there is no facial recognition in Lightroom CC. I am a professional Photo Organizer and I was hoping it would be a good alternative to Mylio and other programs for organizing client's photos. With facial recognition in other competitive products, it is a way to add lots of names as keywords very efficiently.
I scan client photos also, and I can't edit the capture date in Lightroom CC, so that is disappointing also.
This product still does seem promising as a way for my clients to view, share and enjoy their photos if I have organized their collection and applied metadata using other products such as Lightroom Classic.

Hello Rikk

I 'm a quit new adobe Lightroom user (3 months now). But what went wrong when naming the Adobe products:

Adobe Lightroom CC 
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC (is no Photoshop)
Adobe Lightroom Classic CC
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic (is no Photoshop)
Adobe Lightroom CC for Mobile
Adobe Lightroom CC photoshop family
all really confusing for the same functionality: managing and editing photos!

I started with Lightroom CC Classic and now trying face detection in Lightroom CC.
The beginning was promising like in Lightroom CC Classic. But after a while I 'm missing a lot of functionality in Lightroom CC, like:

- Deleting unwanted face. Hiding works in people screen, but not in detailed-tag screen. Hided (unwanted) face do still showup there as unnamed faces
- Adding faces manual, since rescan of (one or multiple) selected pictures is not possible, like in Lightroom Classic CC
- See the detected faces on the picture. Preferably with a possibility to switch this function on and of. like in Lightroom Classic CC
- Strange gui controle: Panes left and right showing up and away. Ex. When in people pane or in album structure(left), you switch to tag or info-pane (right), the left side is will collaps/close .Maybe this has something to do with screen size? I working on a 13" laptop right now.

Beside this points I think there is a room for a lot of improvement to do in Lightroom CC.

I wonder what Adobe want with Lightroom CC? Why don't make Lightroom CC a professional cloud based photo program. Lightroom Classic CC seems a fine product to me, with very good functionality, the basics is there, so why is Lightroom CC not (yet)?

Hope to see some improvements soon. For know Lightroom CC is a disappointment to me, back to Lightroom Classic CC

Sorry fo my English, hope you understand my story.

There seems to be a setting in the preferences, tab interface, to stop automatically closing the left and right menubars. So my 4th point (gui) is no issue anymore.

Thanks for the suggestion, Meg. I'll change it to an Idea so it gets logged as a feature request.

I miss the face detection in Lightroom CC. Please can you add this later?

I agree with Meg.... I have thousands of pictures and facial recognition in Lightroom CC would really help me sort through the photos I have migrated over from Lightroom Classic. VERY disappointed this feature is not available on CC version. I would think that this version would be an upgrade from Classic, but I guess not at this point.

I'd also suggest making it so I don't have to take every face, but that AI is able to recognize faces I've already tagged and auto take them for me (within a reasonable confidence range).

Basic features are missing in Lightroom CC:
- face recognition
- geotagging
LCC is a product of Adobe where the customer will be punished if he gets involved.

I have had Lightroom for a while, now that Aperture shut down, but it was more than I needed. The new Lightroom CC seemed ideal for me, however without facial recognition (like google photos) and geotagging...wow I don't know.

I agree with Peter's comments about the demise of Aperture. While Photos is promising, I miss Apertures features. Photoshop Elements was interesting but erratically buggy. I switched to Lightroom CC thinking it had facial recognition... importing 9000 some photos lost on old drives and from Apple. Some form of algorithmic tagging would be awesome. I saw some app from a UK corp which had some of these features, but lost the url. Oh, may somehow Lightroom become more than a repository for old clothes in the back of the closet.

Sorry I disagree, Face recognition would surely lead to it being really really slow , while it tries to map and database each face . And lord forbid when it would hang and auto tag and get in your face .. no pun intended!

I’m stumped to why so many people have voted for this !
It’s a fancy facebook style feature that would swallow processing power and resources.

Let’s concentrate on solid basic features , File (batch) renaming would help you to organise images better .
And making sub and folders / albums.

I believe being able to rename files and then search the filename would help archive part of your needs .
And mine and everyone else who normally renames collections by client / jobs / events.

If it seems really popular and get added , than I’d like to see it as an option to turn off completely.
I can see a use for people that have 1000s of family photos not organised and named into folders / albums.

But for the rest of us that shoot and organise our images its not needed.

Cheers

Not necessarily - they could do it in the cloud, like they're doing with the other Sensei stuff.

But I do agree we need the basics in there first.

Yes it would require lots of processing power
No it wouldn't be really slow

You can expect that processing power to be supplied by a cluster of 100s of machines and high-end Tesla GPUs in the cloud, if not more esoteric hardware, with Adobe continuing to revise the underlying neural nets uses for this task

That's kind of what the cloud is about!

It is really really really strange how Lightroom CC works. 
No face recognition
5mn to find how to import sd card

Some improvement found in Lightroom classic CC?

Really adobe, we are human being. Please make things more simple.

Hi, any news here? Still disappointed and waiting. The software is really expensive, so I think Adobe should add the features the Classic-Version already has...

Martin, it's a great request, but just bear in mind that Classic's had more than 10 years of development, whereas CC is very new.

I don't think that is really an answer - CC is not starting development as a new product in 2007, but as part of an existing product line in which geotagging and facial recognition have already been developed.

What is confusing is why features which already exist haven't been included in the CC version of the software - particularly since it is positioned as part of the Lightroom line rather than as a new line that is deliberately much more basic and less functional. 

In any event if it is something which is definitely in the works, it would be helpful to have confirmation of that (and when it is expected to be introduced) so that we know not to make other arrangements.

I do totally agree. instead of adding already developed basic function (printing, geotag, face recognition), they add some auto tag function thats is not very useful.
Missing ability to use this product with family account etc

in fact no idea is taken in account but the very expensive fee we pay every month for a big 1Tb even it 1 ou 200 Gb is enough.

Very disappointed in the Lightroom CC app. without facial recognition and face tagging. After doing a bunch of research for a replacement for Picasa that I could put on my new iPad Pro, the only comparable program that came up was Lightroom cc. I just spent 3 days prepping photos for import, creating folders and albums, importing and syncing photos only to find out that I can’t see which tag goes where. Then I add the premium feature subscription thinking that maybe that is where the facial recognition functionality comes is... wrong answer.. Not a Happy Camper! Basically just bought an app and monthly subscription for nothing

I would love to see LR CC incorporate a Facial Recognition feature similar to LR Classic. It would make it so much simpler to find photos of family and friends quickly and easily. Right now the only way is to keyword which is time consuming and frustrating.

Very disappointed. Explored lots of tools in the market and was prepared to pay the subscription to Adobe, but then found no facial recognition which was one of my prerequisites!  Website was misleading as it does not differentiate between Lightroom Classic (which has it) and CC (which doesn't). A great offering, but missing the leading component, which it has available in it's sister product! Weird.

Thank you for listening to us on this feature. Rikk I opened up the web version of Adobe Lightroom product and don't see it there. Is this a downloaded app feature only? Where should we see this showing up?

Yeah thanks. But.... When I downloaded v2.0 and then went into People it just said "No people yet, Lightroom will scan for them". I went back an hour later and still nothing... Please help...

From our help doc: 

When I access the People View, why does Lightroom CC display 'No People Found Yet'?

Initial indexing of your photos may take some time. The ‘No People Found Yet’ message is displayed when Lightroom is still analyzing all your photos to find people or when there aren't any people in your photos.
