Lightroom CC: Please add face recognition

I am disappointed that there is no facial recognition in Lightroom CC. I am a professional Photo Organizer and I was hoping it would be a good alternative to Mylio and other programs for organizing client's photos. With facial recognition in other competitive products, it is a way to add lots of names as keywords very efficiently.
I scan client photos also, and I can't edit the capture date in Lightroom CC, so that is disappointing also.
This product still does seem promising as a way for my clients to view, share and enjoy their photos if I have organized their collection and applied metadata using other products such as Lightroom Classic.

Thanks for the suggestion, Meg. I'll change it to an Idea so it gets logged as a feature request.

I miss the face detection in Lightroom CC. Please can you add this later?

I agree with Meg.... I have thousands of pictures and facial recognition in Lightroom CC would really help me sort through the photos I have migrated over from Lightroom Classic. VERY disappointed this feature is not available on CC version. I would think that this version would be an upgrade from Classic, but I guess not at this point.

I'd also suggest making it so I don't have to take every face, but that AI is able to recognize faces I've already tagged and auto take them for me (within a reasonable confidence range).

Basic features are missing in Lightroom CC:
- face recognition
- geotagging
LCC is a product of Adobe where the customer will be punished if he gets involved.

I have had Lightroom for a while, now that Aperture shut down, but it was more than I needed. The new Lightroom CC seemed ideal for me, however without facial recognition (like google photos) and geotagging...wow I don't know.

I agree with Peter's comments about the demise of Aperture. While Photos is promising, I miss Apertures features. Photoshop Elements was interesting but erratically buggy. I switched to Lightroom CC thinking it had facial recognition... importing 9000 some photos lost on old drives and from Apple. Some form of algorithmic tagging would be awesome. I saw some app from a UK corp which had some of these features, but lost the url. Oh, may somehow Lightroom become more than a repository for old clothes in the back of the closet.

Sorry I disagree, Face recognition would surely lead to it being really really slow , while it tries to map and database each face . And lord forbid when it would hang and auto tag and get in your face .. no pun intended!

I’m stumped to why so many people have voted for this !
It’s a fancy facebook style feature that would swallow processing power and resources.

Let’s concentrate on solid basic features , File (batch) renaming would help you to organise images better .
And making sub and folders / albums.

I believe being able to rename files and then search the filename would help archive part of your needs .
And mine and everyone else who normally renames collections by client / jobs / events.

If it seems really popular and get added , than I’d like to see it as an option to turn off completely.
I can see a use for people that have 1000s of family photos not organised and named into folders / albums.

But for the rest of us that shoot and organise our images its not needed.

Cheers

Not necessarily - they could do it in the cloud, like they're doing with the other Sensei stuff.

But I do agree we need the basics in there first.

Yes it would require lots of processing power
No it wouldn't be really slow

You can expect that processing power to be supplied by a cluster of 100s of machines and high-end Tesla GPUs in the cloud, if not more esoteric hardware, with Adobe continuing to revise the underlying neural nets uses for this task

That's kind of what the cloud is about!

It is really really really strange how Lightroom CC works. 
No face recognition
5mn to find how to import sd card

Some improvement found in Lightroom classic CC?

Really adobe, we are human being. Please make things more simple.

Hi, any news here? Still disappointed and waiting. The software is really expensive, so I think Adobe should add the features the Classic-Version already has...

Martin, it's a great request, but just bear in mind that Classic's had more than 10 years of development, whereas CC is very new.

I don't think that is really an answer - CC is not starting development as a new product in 2007, but as part of an existing product line in which geotagging and facial recognition have already been developed.

What is confusing is why features which already exist haven't been included in the CC version of the software - particularly since it is positioned as part of the Lightroom line rather than as a new line that is deliberately much more basic and less functional. 

In any event if it is something which is definitely in the works, it would be helpful to have confirmation of that (and when it is expected to be introduced) so that we know not to make other arrangements.

I do totally agree. instead of adding already developed basic function (printing, geotag, face recognition), they add some auto tag function thats is not very useful.
Missing ability to use this product with family account etc

in fact no idea is taken in account but the very expensive fee we pay every month for a big 1Tb even it 1 ou 200 Gb is enough.

Very disappointed in the Lightroom CC app. without facial recognition and face tagging. After doing a bunch of research for a replacement for Picasa that I could put on my new iPad Pro, the only comparable program that came up was Lightroom cc. I just spent 3 days prepping photos for import, creating folders and albums, importing and syncing photos only to find out that I can’t see which tag goes where. Then I add the premium feature subscription thinking that maybe that is where the facial recognition functionality comes is... wrong answer.. Not a Happy Camper! Basically just bought an app and monthly subscription for nothing
