Hi,

I find the new Lightroom CC very interesting but is lacking several esencial features for heavy users.

Some of them are alredy requested, but I'd like to add the Publish Services. They are a really powerful tool to send pictures to WordPress, 500px, Flickr.... 

For some of us is just an essential feature in our workflow. I hope you consider adding it on the near future.

Thanks!

Same here, that's an important feature. It will keep a lot of users away from the new LR CC.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Export in Lightroom CC.

Need to be able to export directly to Amazon S3, ftp, Google Drive, Dropbox on an a per album basis.  I'm really excited about the potential in speed for exporting.  My particular use case has us exporting 40-50k photos on some weekends and that is a huge bottleneck.  Cloud based exporting could be a huge game changer for us as we often have 4-5 computers running and having manually move catalogs and files around is painful.

This probably could have gone in any conversation type except "praise," but -


The Facebook-only thing is just for a short time, and additional options will be available real soon now, right?

I mean, photography is a lot of fun and everything, but for a lot of us the real rewards come from the ability to share what we produce with others. This has suddenly become much harder than it was just yesterday. 

That was not at all something I expected from a cloud-based product.

Mike, I'm deeply concerned about the direction of Lightrtoom, and the Cloud based Creative Cloud in general. I have two full subscriptions that lets me have it on four machines, but I'm going to scale that back January to one full subscription, and one just with PS and LR. But I'm thinking I need to find a replacement for LR. 

The push to the cloud makes no sense to me. It means that Adobe is going to be pushing cloud storage subscriptions and other add on services. 

I used to buy one full upgrade to the Creative Suite once every three years. Now I'm paying enough to buy a full one every year, and the product quality has decreased, and the subtle push for new add on services that don't meet our needs is a red flag.

They will never ever do it. But you can use this: https://www.lrinstagram.com/. You will need CC Classic.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Send to Flickr.

Please develop the integrated ability to send to Flickr from Lightroom CC desktop.  Send to Facebook exists, however many serious photographers still prefer Flickr for social media sharing.  It seems that the new LR cloud based app is targeted to people who sync across multiple devices and share, it is confusing that the LR CC is lacking in any sharing export except for Facebook.

The Facebook export is garbage anyway. Exporting to JPG and uploading those to Facebook works much better --- files renamed so they upload in order, and the captions are embedded.

People complaining here, why did you upgrade to Lightroom CC? You should have upgraded to Lightroom CC Classic. This is the Lightroom you should use, it is the same as before, with the Publish Services and more. Lightroom CC (cloud) should NOT be used, as it has not been designed for professionals. By using it, you are basically telling Adobe that you are fine with this new version they created. Drop it.

Yes, Adobe should add plugins support to Lightroom CC (cloud). But meanwhile, use Lightroom CC Classic. Ask a refund for the other one. They don't care about what you are saying here, they only care about their sales data.

(I am the developer of WP/LR Sync, a Publish Service for Lightroom to WordPress).

I have the Creative Cloud subscripion (two actually), so I always keep my apps up to date. It was unclear to me why there was a CC Classic and CC, so I installed both, and like many people discovered after the fact what was going on. 

I also finally split my catalog because it was becoming slow, only to take a bunch of crap from somebody at Adobe on one of these forums about how I'm wrong that monolithic catalogs cause slower performance. This was in response to myself and others discovering that you can only create mobile folders in one catalog. Again, I discovered after the fact that you can only sync folders in one catalog, and now I've got a total mess. 

After years of swearing by Lightroom and recommending it to many photographers, I'm pretty annoyed (that is an understatement), and my goal is to ditch Lightroom this year for cataloging. I'll use it to edit photo shoots, but I'm done. Adobe screwed the pooch on this one.

Hopefully LRCC in the future will have better publishing options that keep up with the latest industry trends.

---

It was very confusing for the longest time the workflow between the LR Classic and LRCC. But, I think I am starting to see what is happening. I feel like LRCC is still being developed (like when Apple created FCPX.) With that being said, LRCC I feel (like many others), is going through growing pains. From a professional photographer's standpoint, it's not where we want it to be nor need it to be.

Adobe is giving us the option of workflows to choose from.

A) We can stick to the LR Classic method and use collections to sync to the cloud. And keep our disk based organizing, like how we're accustomed to.

B) We can migrate our LR Classic catalogs to the cloud and work primarily from the cloud. You can still use LR Classic.

It really comes down to where the original files live at the end of the day.

A) The files live locally on your hard drive organized in the classic manner as LR Classic does. This method will sync Smart Previews to the cloud through the use of Collections.

Users get to keep the file hierarchy that they are accustomed to.

B) The files live on the cloud. In this manner, LR Classic will create a collection set called From lr mobile. That collection set will then download your albums from LRCC in full resolution to your hard drive or destination folder that you have designated in the LR Classic preferences.

In closing:

• LRCC is in version 1.1 at the time of this writing. There is a lot of room for growth. Let's see what we end up with in v.2 and v.3.

• Creative Cloud will make more use of A.I. (Sensei) and the use of LRCC will tie more directly to Adobe Stock (all of this happening more on the backend/underneath the hood) as more shooters will be choosing to monetize their work on the Adobe Stock platform.
