Please allow clients with no Adobe ID to comment, like and rate Lightroom Mobile Collections. The un-logged in client access needs to be limited to a small number of features to allow clients to interact with their photographer over progress of work and providing feedback.

Only major missing feature from LR in my opinion.

I second this! Why can't I share a link to my collection via Lightroom Mobile, then send it to others whom I would like to help me rate the photos? And why can't they see the star ratings via the Lightroom Mobile shared collection link? I would think this feature is essential for collaborating and sharing collections online?

Allowing users without an Adobe ID to like and comment via their Google or Facebook account would be also very helpful. Anonymous liking and commenting should only be allowed optionally and not by default.

it would also be nice to be able to get comments and likes from LR mobile users without an Adobe ID.THe need for an Adobe ID often keeps customers or friends form using this features.

This is my number one question asked by customers when I use lightroom mobile as a proofing album.

A vision for Lightroom Mobile is to do a teathered Studio Shoot and to send selected images to a client using "Make Public" which provides a unique URL which may be emailed to a client for his viewing  on his own Laptop or tablet, and comment.  The process works perfectly until the client wants to comment on one or more images.  When the client clicks on the "comment" or "Like" icons, he is immediately asked for his Adobe ID and Password, or to Register for an Adobe ID.  I can't imagine a client wanting to do this unless he already has an Adobe ID.  The client in all probability isn't even aware of Adobe.  The only rationale I see for asking for an Adobe ID is to identify who is returning the comment.  Why not just ask for the client's name and email address (which you know since you sent the link to him via emil), which should be sufficient to identify him.  Without this change I view this vision for Lightroom Mobile as a failure.
 

Can this be implemented in a future update?

Hi all, 
as reply to the other topic, I'm working on Evlaa so simplify this workflow and allow you to have a very easy way to have the selection of photos with your client. 

Please, check out Evlaa and let me know what you think about. 
Happy to talk. 
Cheers 
Martin

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom: Help regarding leaving comments on a public collection.

Am I missing something here? I recently made a public collection of photos so that my friends could leave comments on their favourite photos. Is it right that you can't leave a comment or like a photo unless you have your own Adobe login? This seems stupid. What if I was to send this link to a client to proof my photos for me and they can't give any feedback because they don't have an Adobe login. So ... am I missing something here? None of my friends or family can do anything without being asked to login?

I thought that Adobe Revel (pretty much Lightroom Mobile's predecessor) didn't require an Adobe ID to comment on Shared Albums. I may be wrong though.

If I am not, it would be nice for this feature with Shared Collections to act like Revel.
