Hi all!

Usually in a collection i select a cover. Is there a way to understand which photo has been selected later? I can't find any flag that highlights it. In addition, when I publish a collection and I copy the link in a whatsapp chat, sometimes the thumbnails is displayed besides the name of the collection but often not.. there's a trick for that?

Many thanks John! Actually, it's possibile to set the photo as cover and inside LR's published collection it's possible to see it as cover too, but if copy the link in a whatsapp chat sometimes the cover itself is not displayed..

If you visit the website at https://lightroom.adobe.com/, it'll show you the cover photo and let you change it.

Many thanks Victoria,

unfortunately that's not the point.. I try and summarize again the two issues here below:

1) on my Mac or Pc, in the gallery module of LR Classic CC I can't find a way (like a flag) that indicates graphically the image marked as cover of the collection
2) if you copy and paste the link of a published collection in whatsapp, and you wait for a while, a window should be displayed containing the cover's thumbnail together with the collection name. The problem is that such thumbnail is only displayed sometimes, though the cover has been already set for the collection

In that case, let me change this thread from a question to a feature request for you.

Ok, thanks! My post is half a request for a new feature and half a problem actually..

Ideally I'd suggest splitting out the WhatsApp problem as a separate thread.

Hi, 

my "enhancement" request is to get displayed, in the gallery module of LR Classic CC and in correspondence of a collection, a flag or something similar that could graphically highlight an image already marked as the cover of the collection itself
