This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom mobile: Search ignores album names

Please allow search option for finding albums. There should be an option to not just sort the albums but also to search for album names so we can find an album like we can a collection in lightroom Classic. This should be possible in lightroom mobile and lightroom desktop. It’s too difficult to find a group of images rather than one specific image. I can then find an image but I have no way of knowing how to get to the collection it is in. So there should also be an option to when you are looking at an individual image to see which collection it is in and go there. This could be done in a ... menu to the image. Option Gero go to album and then it could show a list of the albums it is in. And the. It should take you to the album and continue showing that image on the screen in that album in the grid but at the point in the album where that image is show. I know this is two different ideas but they all center around the same thing: finding albums. Two different ways to find an album. I think both should be in there.

That feature already exists in Lightroom Desktop. With the image selected, open the Info panel and at the bottom will be a list of all/any albums that the image is in. Clicking on one of the albums will indeed take you to the album with the image still selected and showing in the grid.

Well then, it should be a since and obvious for Adobe to add it to the mobile version of Lightroom.  And of course, the search bar for a given album rather than just the sort order feature now available in the mobile app.

The real question is why they thought that you would want to be able to go to the collection a photo was in in the desktop version, but think that no one would want to go to the collection that an image is in in the mobile app.  With the power of the new iPads and the fact that PS is now coming in full glory to the iPad, why is Lightroom on the iPad not just as robust as Lightroom on the desktop?  And may I just say, again -- don't forget the idea of searching for a collection in a search bar.  That is another no-brainer.

Yes, that is a great idea, because I have album names with some keywords.
