I have not found a way to search for FOLDER names, or ALBUM names in the new Lightroom CC. If a person has nested folders or nested albums there should be a way to search for keywords in the folder or album names.

Hi Philip, thanks for the feedback. This is currently not possible. I've marked your topic as a feature request for other customers to vote on and the engineering team to consider.

Oh yes, I'm always trying to find albums I've nested deep within folders. Gets my vote!

You talking about LRCC or LR Classic? My understanding is that LRCC organizes for the user and provides a sophisticated search algorithm to find individual images but that there is no "folder" structure only albums generated automatically. At least that is what I understood Jared Platt to say in his video on CreativeLive.com. Do I misunderstand?

Yes, a little. "Folders" are used in LRCC as well as "Albums", and they are equivalent to "Collections Sets" and "Collections" in LR Classic.

And while LRCC does have the AI search capability, that does not extend to the Folders and Albums, only to the images.

Not yet Massimiliano. As you can imagine, there are loads and loads of requests being prioritized right now.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC: please enable search inside album names.

can be really usefull to have a search not only by tags but even inside the album/folder names

Totally necessary feature. I have just migrated my quite extensive photo library from Classic CC to CC, first building hierarchy of collections and collection sets out of file system directories and them importing them into CC, which has managed to build the same hierarchy of albums and folders respectively. Now, when it was a hierarchy of file system directory I could always rely on the file system to find what I want. Now I am lacking this ability, which is quite sad.

That’s exactly the problem. Cloud sync is nice. Losing this search feature is crippling.
