Lightroom mobile: Photo info missing

From a collection in Lightroom, clicking on "Make Public" gives a web address to the collection. Using this method, the Photo Info does not appear when viewing photos at the web address. If the desktop version of LR Mobile is used, it is possible to copy the URL paste it into a browser, and view the photo info. Since the Make Public URL is automatically shortened, it is more convenient to use. Is it possible to include the photo info with the Make Public generated URL?

It would also be good to include the location information with the photo info.

I cannot get the photo info to show on any linked web address. Not sure which URL you are referring to where you can view the photo info. Would love to be able to do that.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled No Filename displayed Lightroom CC Mobile Web Galleries? Huge Oversight.

I have been using Lr Mobile galleries for months now as a proofing medium for clients and although it is convenient, the grief created by this issue alone outweighs the benefits:
The inability to display a filename for an image... WITHOUT AN ADOBE ACCOUNT.
I want my clients to see a filename, right below or next to the single display image. For my clients to reference '17 of 49' actually creates more work for me. Even IF you have an Adobe account, the user must click on a flyout menu, then another click on the 'Photo Info' tab to see a filename. 2-clicks. And have an account. That's silly.
I can (somewhat) understand that to 'rate' or comment on a photo, a user account is required. But to just display a filename? Please tell me I am missing a parameter or setting because I would rather be wrong then wait for this to be corrected- if it ever will be.

If my name was Tom Hogarty, I would like the (parameter/option) to place the filename or sequence number ON the thumbnail image, and then when the image is clicked to display larger, the filename below the image.

Hi James,

I have the same problem but I wanted to ask, when I click through to the photo info, even when logged in, I can't see the original file name, could you let me know how this is enabled.

Thanks

I'm still dumbfounded that a simple filename/title can't be added to LR Mobile galleries without an Adobe account. No, stupified.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Web: Show Filenames on Shared Collections in Lighroom Mobile.

Lightroom CC on Windows 10 -- Lightroom Mobile
I've synced a collection with Lightroom Mobile and shared that collection with my clients for proof review. My clients can see the photos but not the photo filename. They only see "6 of 59" in the bottom left corner of the screen. So they can only refer to the photos by number. As they reject certain proofs and I remove them from the collection, the numbers change. It would be so much easier if the client were shown the filename and then could refer to photos by filename. Please consider adding this feature in an upcoming revision. Thanks so much for your time in this matter. Richard -- rcsparks39042@gmail.com

I cannot believe this hasn't been corrected. Obviously, Adobe tests their Lr Mobile Galleries as they want us to use it vs. how it is actually used. So disappointed.

How about it, Adobe? I refuse to use Lightroom Mobile as my proofing service because of this issue. Please make this simple correction. At least let us hear from you so that we know we are being heard, and offer an explanation as to the hold-up on this request.

Would be really useful if when web viewing via Lightroom 5.4 mobile had the option to display the file name.

I would like file names to show when I synch a collection in Lightroom to mobile through a web gallery. I would like clients to refer to images by file number (not by sequence #)
Thanks

This is an ongoing issue that has not been corrected.  The file info panel on Adobe Lightroom Mobile Web is nearly empty with no way to preset more info to the client.  On July 25th, 2016 we are still only showing the copyright info in the info panel?  That is strange... Filename, Star Rating, Color Label, Camera Settings, Description, Title, Keywords... I can think of a thousand things one might want to put in there and they are all available for Adobe to display, but they have chosen not to display them.  The question is why?  Logged in with an adobe ID or not, the client can not see any real information in the file panel.  It should be available to display in the grid as an overlay as well (should you choose to do so) and even the file name and stars etc should be displayed (if wanted) below the photo in the loop mode.  But for certain, that info panel is a no brainer.  We should be able to select what displays there...  Why are we not allowed to?

Jared:  Please keep fighting for this!  Omitting this feature is just crazy to me with all the amazing & powerful tools in Lr.  Its like planning and completing a manned mission to Mars and upon arrival,  realizing they forgot  to pack us boots.

This is so frustrating, my clients are selecting images from the web galleries but can't relate them back to the original file numbers.

I just want to echo the requirement for the display of filenames on Mobile web interface. Same arguments as above, my clients want to refer to an image by filename, not by 34 of 56.
And while we're changing this, how about a approve/ reject button. If the web interface can do "likes" and comments, then it can do approvals as a toggle.

On a web share, if you are on a laptop or desktop, you can hit the letter "i" on your keyboard to show an overlay with filenames.

Wow, that's well hidden. But (sorry, always a but!) it works with the filename overlay on the thumbnails, but when you click the thumbnail to get the large display, using i only displays the info panel - which doesn't have the filename displayed. And this is the case if you're signed in with an adobe ID or not (another id - not the Lightroom web owner)

Well hidden, very much so but that is a big help. It would be so good if that was maintained in the full screen display not just the thumbnails. Cant understand why the info panel is always empty.

@Richard_Coencas I've done a further search and found a previous thread from you that explained that the Caption filed does show up https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/no-filename-displayed-lr-cc-mobile-web-galleries-huge-oversight It's an easy work around then to copy the filename into the caption field (I used John Beardy's Search and Replace plugin http://www.beardsworth.co.uk/lightroom/search-and-replace/ ). The files re-sync and then my clients can still see the filenames.

Richard Coencas, I tried what you are suggesting and it doesn't work from my desktop.  There is an icon on the bottom right corner that opens up a panel that says "Photo Info" but no info is displayed.  What am I doing wrong?  The link is 1SGClif.  Even if this did work, what about clients that review photos from their phone or iPad?  They can't hit the "i" key.  There should be a better option than this.  Thanks for taking the time to respond.  This thread was started one year ago, and to my knowledge you are the first response from Adobe.  I point that out, again, to say thanks for responding.  Please let me know why this won't work on my machine.

It only works on the thumbnail display. But see my post above for how to get the filename in the info panel in full screen display.

Hi Richard Sparks,

It sounds to me like you are in loupe (single image view). The "i" shortcut only works from the Grid on shares.

Thanks for the reply.  It won't work in the grid view or the loupe view.  I tried them both.

Just making sure, are you in the Share URL and not the owner's view of the collection? If you have a URL of the share you wouldn't mind posting or sending directly to me, I could take a look.

My apologies.  I was in the owner's view, not the Share URL.  It does work there.  Still there appears to be a large number of us that would like the filename to be available in the info panel in the Share URL.  Is that not possible?  Thanks for your assistance and I apologize for my error.

I can see the overlays. Here's a screenshot of how they should look. Are you tapping i (no quotes or other keys). What browser and OS are you using?

Amazing, the beardsworth plug in does the job of changing the info panel to the filename and now it shows up in the loupe panel. Shame Adobe couldn't make this happen

Hello all, I thought you might be interested to know that as of today, the file name will also show in the Photo Info panel of shares.

Richard this is a step in the right direction- but still requires instruction for the end user to click to see it for reference- and only in loupe view.  Why can't we get a simple filename to display- without some 3rd party plugin?  At the very least, in lieu of the '1 of xx' location in the lower-left of the loupe view.  Ideally, I would like a filename below the thumbnails as well as in the loup view below the image.

I can't believe we are still campaigning for this feature!

Here's what causes me so much grief:  I photograph a lot of corporate/actor/modeling  headshots.  As a result, we proof over the web.  Most of my headshot sessions involve proofing between 10-100+  images per client session- with many image sequences being only slight changes in expression and head tilt. 
Now imagine you're the end user- WITHOUT AN ADOBE ACCOUNT- trying to determine your favorite images.  The lack of a simple filename below the thumbnail and below the loup view image  creates frustration and miscommunication with my clients because they can see the two, three or five images they love but they must either open each image, refer to  the '47/127' number in the lower-left or click THREE TIMES to discover the filename (once to get into Loupe View, once on the lower-right icon and again on the Photo Info tab. 
And even worse is when clients are using any number of devices to view the photos and then reference, "I like the one on the 2nd row- 9th from the left" BECAUSE THERE IS NO FILENAME.

Location information and metadata is now available to be shown in the photo info panel of the public LR mobile galleries, I love this!

Now it would be nice if it was possible to optionally also show the exact time instead of just the date on which the image was taken.
