Lightroom Feature Request
LIBRARY


I olften create a lot of Virtual Copies before I print, But later it is hard to figure out which is which. I'd like to be able to add a note.


Ability to add a post-it like note to an image. Have a little yellow dot on thee thubnail denoting that you have added a note. You can click the dot for the note to pop-up, or with the info overlay have the note visible on the upper right.


PRESETS


1) Please at the search box as you have for the COLLECTIONS. Many of us have several sets of purchased presets, and it becomes hard to find all our "flower" presets, or BW presets, Or say the presets we created for our Cuba Trip.


2)  There is a small free app called "LR Preset Jumper" which allows you to use the up/down arrow keys to cycle through your presets. Rather than having to click each preset.


3) Fade Presets:  There is another app that allows a selected preset to be applied with a slider. 0-100%.  Often I want to use a complex preset but it is too intense. It would be nice to say add 50% of the intensity of a preset. Understood it could not include TRANSFORMATION, etc.


4) Sometimes I have a preset that will example effect the TRANSFORM. It would be nice to lock a certain adjustment panel, like TONE CURVE, DETAIL, etc. a little lock up by the on off switch on the panel.  This way I can apply or try a preset, without reseting or changing my TRANSFORM, or my Noise reduction. Would not be hard to do.


5) I'd love a User Customizable Menu, in the Menu Bar where we can store our Favorite Presets. Much easier than searching the preset panel tree.


ADJUSTMENT PANELS


The DEHAZE dslider really needs to be moved to the Basic panel. I use it in connection to CLARITY. When using a Adjustment Brrush, or Gard Filter, you do have DEHAZE in the Basic Panel. Very useful slider.


PRINT MODULE


1) I do a loot of printing from LR. And it can be very frustrating.


1) Allow a zoom in feature so we can check things before printing, rather than having to go back to DEVELOPMENT Module.


2) In the CUSTOM Layout, I often need to print 2 or more images that are different dimensions. I can set say 2 frames and type the dimensions in. But then I can only align them visually. I can't zoom in to see if they are aligned.  It would be very nice to have alignment tools, like a lign vertically to page, Center Horizontally.


You could make the PRINT Module far more useful.


SLIDESHOW MODULE


I know the slideshow module is the black sheep of the family, But I find it incredibly useful. Some suggestions from a Slideshow power user.


1) Allow us to override a single slides durration. I'm often syncing to music and need a single image to be shorter or longer.


2) BLACK FRAMES: I like a black frame after the Title frame. I open create in PS a black image and insert it within my slideshow as fade to blacks. Problem. if the aspect ratio is different, the fade in or out can show the "letterbox."


3) The Title Text is a great feature. Please allow more than 1 line of text. Allow us to add a similar Title card within the slideshow.


4) Minor annowance. This is only during playback and preview. There is no volume control. The audio is usually very loud. Yes, I can adjust my computers volume, but a volume/mute feature would be nice.


5) I mainly use this feature to publish a video to youtube or Vimeo. Please add a few more resolutions like 4K 24 or 4K 30. 1080p is a bit old these days. Maybe H.265?


6) Output to PDF. This is a great feature!  How about some control of the PDF, like resolution. Print ready or just screen resolution. I often publish a PDF catalog to ISSUU right from the Slideshow Module. There is absolutely no faster way to create a PDF catalog and get it published than Lightroom's Slideshow Module.!!

It's far better to post each feature request separately, to allow other users to comment and vote on them individually (and give Adobe a better sense of what people are interested in).
