Lightroom Desktop: Please add red eye removal

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

Hi Benjamin. Red eye reduction is a basic feature. The fact that ANY Adobe editing system doesn't have it is STUPID. I'm sure this isn't your decision, but please make sure that Adobe GETS a "specific release date planned." May I inform Adobe that I "intend" to pay them, but that I "do not have a specific payment date planned"? No--I may not.

Funny that in an interview during the Adobe Max / Photoshop launch with the press, Adobe's Scott Belsky (I think?) the chief product officer, after explaining why Photoshop for the iPad is missing so many features, said when asked about Lightroom versus Lightroom CC that at this point Lightroom CC has all the same features are classic Lightroom.
Nice of him to ignore details like this. I guess at the corporate stratosphere level, they are being told by underlings that "feature parity has been achieved" without challenging the details.
I wish I had the link to the article, sorry but I didn't save it.

Ben, it’s just not good enough to be so vague , can we at least have a target release date?

Wow, it is hard to believe that such a basic, common feature is such a challenge to deliver. Why is this so difficult for Adobe? Feels like no one is listening to a simple feature request from customers.

HI Ben
This is crazy long time for a common used feature, I hate having to swap between software to do red eye. I just renewed my subscription, we will have to start voting with our wallets if this goes on much longer.... can this be escalated up the chain to get some action.

No. Unfortunately, there isn’t yet.

People need to know, that something as basic as red eye removal really doesn’t exist in Lightroom CC. I was researching a good option for photo organizing and editing. I really could not imagine that this really wasn’t included in a subscription service. Most free services offer this feature.

You're not missing a thing, it didn't make the cut for 1.0. I've just switched your post to a feature request though.

The red eye removal tool is necessary and should be brought back fast. I want to be able to continue to use Lightroom CC.

100% agree. I think it's silly to both change the format of Classic to CC AND remove features...

They didn't Timothy. Classic remains the same as it always did. CC is a brand new app for a new audience.

Still needs the basic functions that are used most. Red eye, pet eye and printing.

Wow, Adobe, just wow. Your arrogance and bone-headed, horrible decisions just keep stacking up. You need to be listening to your users, not your developers.

This post is from ONE YEAR AGO - and the Red Eye Removal Tool hasn't been added back!  What is the roadmap for features to be re-added to acheive parity with Lightroom 6.0?   Especially Red Eye Removal and HDR processing?

Thanks.

Agreed! Red eye's been around for awhile now and is probably one of the most common edits. Just don't see any reason to not have it.

As a new convert to Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC, having used Imac Photos editing up till now, I am bemused at the lack of red-eye removal tool. It may be the case that the majority of photographers who use this software are so competent that they never have an issue with red-eye. I am not in this category sadly and need red-eye removal support. If it is included in the free Photos Mac app, then why is it not included in the monthly subscription LightroomCC?

I fully agree with the posts in this thread... I am also a new convert to Adobe Lightroom from Mac Photos.. and decided to go for Lightroom's Cloud version. I am rather puzzled as to why it doesnt support red eye reduction - which is as mentioned here part of so many free and more simple photo apps out there..  Please make this a priority as it is one of the most common edits we make..

No red eye removal tool?   Ugh.  May need to cancel my subscription until lightroom CC is ready for prime time.  Seems like a very basic (I mean even the free photo app on my phone can fix red eye) photo tool to ommit.

I am dismayed that you had red eye removal in Classic, but not in your newest, bestest, (and only one available now) LR.  Please add this function.  All my other editing programs had it!!  This really is ridiculous.

Please note that Lightroom Classic is being actively developed, with new releases all the time, and is still very much available: https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-lightroom-classic.html

@benjaminwarde Lightroom Classic is not available with the Lightroom (1 TB) plan. You either have to switch to the Photography (20 GB) plan and lose most of your your Cloud Storage or pay $10 more per month for the Photography (1 TB) plan. I don’t see any reason why Red Eye removal should be a “premium” feature excluded from Lightroom CC. After all, we gave up our Photoshop license to get the greater cloud storage.

Hi Clinton, 1) it is a pity that Adobe does not make clear how to best use LR Classic together with LR CC cloud. A typical Classic user is storing all the pictures locally and if using the Cloud all synced pictures are there as smart previews without any storage limit. The 20 GB limit is only for Originals. Both versions, Classic and Cloud are not designed to work together when you store the pictures in the cloud. 2) I hope that Adobe will implement a much better red eye removal method than used in PS Elements 2020, because replacing red with black results often in more ugly pictures. 
I personally do not need this red eyes removal tool, because I am not using Flash directly on my camera and have switched it of on my smartphone. Let us wait and see what Adobe is doing and hope the best.

@PeterObermeier I don't used Red Eye Removal very often, but it's a feature that is in Lightroom Classic, thus I feel it should be in Lightroom CC.  I completely agree, Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC do not pair well together.  Lightroom CC's strength lies in its ability to push and pull original RAW files to/from the cloud with ease.  It's a great tool for those of use that edit on both tablets and desktops without the need to large internal or external drives.  Lightroom Classic only pushes Smart Previews to the cloud, but allows for total file management control on your desktop.  Tablet editors like me will appreciate Lightroom CC while Desktop/Laptop editors will likely favor Lightroom Classic.  That's fine if Adobe wants to offer two flavors, but Lightroom CC should be as feature rich and capable as Lightroom Classic.

And it will be someday, but it's much earlier in its development. This is certainly a very good feature request, it just hasn't made it to the top of the priority list yet.

What a patronising smug comment. When we all bought CC much was made of the editing suite and comparable functionality to the original product. This was a lie. We pay for an incomplete inadequate product that is supposed to work well in a mobile first environment and yet does not have THE MOST BASIC EDITING TOOL THAT MOST CUSTOMERS WOULD USE ON THEIR IPHONE!!
yet everyone else’s service has red eye built in. What is more of a priority?! 2 years of bullshit. If this isn’t a priority someone needs to get their head out of their arse and listen to their customers!!

Hi Martyn, you misunderstand LR CC. It is a PRO Tool and only amateurs take pictures with red eyes.
What do you think? ( I expect capital letters)

I'm sorry if you felt that was patronizing Martyn, it was not meant in that way. It's purely a fact, the cloud-based version was only released on the desktop 2 years ago, whereas Lightroom Classic was released 13 years ago. As a result, there will naturally be a vast difference in the number of features available. 

As far as editing features goes, the young Cloudy version has caught up quickly. It has almost all of the editing features, but it is still missing a few, including red eye removal.

It does seem that Lightroom CC has been rushed out.  Red-eye removal is fairly basic editing, and is essential... It also doesn't seem to be able to copy a particular image's adjustments and apply to multiple images.  It can only do one, regardless of whether a group is selected to apply the changes to.  Finally, I have been frustrated that there is no slideshow option for Lightroom CC.

Please add red-eye removal.  Maybe pet-eye while you're at it.

Comment Adobe peut-il mettre en ligne un produit aussi mal conçu et incomplet. C'est incompréhensible. De plus, ils ne tiennent pas compte des centaines de remarques faites par les utilisateurs et ne leur répondent même pas.  Pourquoi une telle impolitesse?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Red Eye Correction Still Missing After a Year.

This may sound a little contrite ... but you design some kind of grid overlay before you upgrade functionality like red eye reductions. Please address the timeline  for when this feature will be added to Lightroom CC. Those of us who pay a monthly fee to use your product deserve a timeline of when these basic features will be added to the online version of your product. Thanks.

Dear Adobe:  Do you have any updates on a timeline for red eye removal in Lightroom CC?  I’m really trying to embrace Lightroom on my mobile platforms, but red eye removal is an essential part of the toolkit - especially on the mobile format where most flashes are straight on from the lens.

A very small tip while waiting for Adobe to add it - try using the Adjustment Brush or a very small Radial Filter to desaturate the red eye area. You'll just need to zoom in to make it small enough.

If it helps anyone still looking for this 2+ years later.. This tip works.. but it is hard to pull off on a computer... very easy on a tablet though.. it gives you a circle.. you make it the size of the redeye exactly.. then... pull all the color saturation out...
