Lightroom iOS feature request navigation and information

  • Updated 2 months ago
The filter icon for Lightroom on the iPad used to show how many flagged, I flagged and rejected photos were in a collection . Now it is necessary to tap each icon to get that information and it only shows the number in that category. Please bring back the overview.

Also, is there a way to ‘bookmark ‘ a photo so you can pick up editing where you left off after changing filter options or moving out of the review/edit view of a single photo.

Thanks

I can't answer the first part of your question, but you could certainly use stars to mark files you want to go back to for editing. For instance, one star could be used for this purpose, and then you can set the filter to equal one star (not one star or greater), and you will see all those photos in the process of being edited.

Thanks for your reply. I already use flags, stars etc. What I would like to see is a 'bookmark' function  so that if I leave one collection for any reason (to work in another, for example), I could pick up at the last photo I worked on rather than at the first photo in the collection. My collections can be a bit large and it can be difficult to get back to where I was.

This has some connection to requests for Smart Albums or data analysis. Being able to see the number of flagged photos, photos of each star ratings, megapixels, focal length, camera, lens, etc. potentially all these could be handled with either smart albums or some built in analytics to see those numbers (maybe even be able to correlate two different pieces of data, I.e. megapixels over time, most common focal lengths by year, etc. I’m not sure at what point it’s more than you need, but certainly knowing what focal length I spend most of my time at helps me analyze lens choices and also learn where to push myself to be more creative.

Thanks for the reply! Before the latest update, when I clicked on the funnel icon on my iPad I would get the choices to show

Flagged   #of flagged photos in the collection
Unflagged  # of unflagged photos in the collection
Rejected  # number of rejucted photos

This has been replaced by icons of the three flag states with no indication of how many of each there are. If you click on a flag, you can see the number of photos for that flag and if you select two flags you get a combined total of both flag states. Three gives you the total in the collection.I liked the former presentation where I could see the information for all three at a glance without having to choose. I don't think they'd have to go to smart albums since that data was shown before the update and is still available in a much more cumbersome fashion.

I understand the issue you pointed out. I was simply pointing out a connection to another issue raised on these forums, and how both issues might be solved the same way.
