Surprised there is no red eye removal (that I can find) in the new Lightroom CC. Am I just missing something?

Hallo, wo kann ich mit LR CC 2.2 die "Rote Augen" Bearbeitung finden? Auf meiner alten Version auf Mac kein Problem..

Two years and counting - still no red eye removal in Lightroom CC cloud?
Yet, we just got an esoteric texture smoothing feature in the latest May 2019 update?

Very disappointed that Adobe does not have an ongoing "slog through until you do it" plan to rapidly get Lightroom CC cloud feature parity with existing Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC.

I understand re-writing a product from scratch doesn't always get feature parity on first release, but two-years on and straightforward, but extremely useful feature like red eye removal is still missing?

Probably falling on deaf ears, but Adobe should be working hard and fast to reward those of us willing to commit to a cloud-first/cloud-only subscription model for Adobe professional tools.

Sure, there are folks that will gripe forever about the subscription versus one-time licensing, or desktop versus cloud, but how about at least removing the technical excuses that are easy for users throw up as rationale to cling to the old way?

I have been a long time Lightroom user since Lightroom Classic version 3.  I am also a senior software engineer.  I understand the technical challenges associated with adding red eye removal to the CC product.  You obviously already have the algorithm, because that worked beautifully in LR Classic.  I have to believe that the issue is deciding how you are going to design the User Interface for that given you have to support it on the desktop, tablets, phones, etc.  The desktop workflow for red eye removal could be similar for CC desktop as it is for LR Classic, but that clearly will not work for mobile devices since you have to rely on "touch" as opposed to "mouse click" to perform the needed steps to complete the task.

My statement and request here is why not just give us the feature on desktop and just not provide it on mobile?  At least we can edit our photos with this essential feature somewhere. Right now, I find myself having to first open the photo in a non-Adobe application and fix the red eye and then bring the photo into Lightroom and continue my editing.  This is a terrible workflow.  

Again, please just give us the red eye removal on the desktop flavor of CC and we can await a time where your UI/UX people can figure out how to accomplish this task on mobile!

This is pretty ridiculous.  Adobe should have warned users that LR CC is a piece of junk.

Je pense qu'il est inutile de réclamer la correction des yeux roues. Adobe est sourd. Désinstallons et c'est tout !

The mobile UI should be a slam dunk.  there are many other mobile apps that have a simple UI for red eye removal.
That is simply not even a palatable excuse, but I'll agree at least give us red eye removal in the desktop CC app.
I too have a very awkward workflow of using an external app which makes me curse every time I have to do it.

Hi
I can't believe adobe have not even bothered to respond to these requests? They are pretty quick at reaching out for a payment!!!

Again I cannot believe that adobe don’t even respect nits users and customers to respond to the irritation that their web product is inferior in many ways (cant do slideshows either. Ffs!!!)

this is beyond a joke. I am amending photos on my iphone because this software package is so useless that THE MOST BASIC ENHANCEMENT TOOL IN THE WORLD - RED EYE REDUCTION is not available despite two years of complaints from users. Foolishly, i signed up and uploaded 40,000 images. I have asked for a formal response as to why this feature is not available and if it is being worked on and if it will ever be a feature. My request was refused! It is an entirely reasonable request and i would appreciate other users also making this request to see if we can wake adobe out of its complacency. They should not be marketing this product as being just like Lightroom but on the cloud and with 1TB of storage. They should admit it is a stripped down basic product..

Hi Martyn, I would use the radial selection and reduce the saturation to remove the red color. I guess you know that already, because you are a pro user.

Best way to get attention with an unresponsive vendor is to post this and get the attention of online photography vlogs and Youtubers. Public embarrassment and PR failure seems to be the only thing big companies pay attention to any more.

Sad, but top executives are paid bonus for their “social media” awareness and performance while regular customer feedback is ignored. Big companies have big politics - it is still a “follow the money” culture with bonus and stock options for performance the widely sought payoff by execs.

C'est inaxeptabke de la part d'Adobe ! Même pas la politesse de répondre ou de justifier ce choix politique ! Il suffit de quelques lignes de code qui sont déjà bien rodées. Inadmiscible !

Can you please explain why there is no red eye removal in Lightroom CC? Even Apple’s photos app has a red eye removal feature. Thank you!

hey guys
Ive been trying for weeks to get someone to answer a simple question. Why is red eye STILL not available on Lightroom CC? If you are working on it, just tell us, if not, just tell us why not. Its super frustrating that no one has responded to multiple questions on this.
thanks

Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: Lightroom CC for Apple TV: Is development is ongoing?.

Hi Martyn, it sounds like you desperately need this red eye removal tool. What are you doing to get so many red eye pictures?
Is this the only missing functionality in LR Mobile? There are still a lot of missing features, even it has improved a lot in the last year. I keep my fingers crossed that Adobe is reacting soon and give you an answer.
Good luck !
Peter

Hey Peter. It’s not that. It’s just that I think it was bad that they oversold their editing functionality to new users and “suckered me in”, but way worse than that it’s incredibly rude the way that they have ignored many requests for this functionality. And yet don’t feel it’s necessary to respond. If Apple , google pics, photoshop elements and lightroom desktop all do this (let alone competing products) why is it beneath adobe engineers and customer service teams to respond to simple direct questions from customers?
That’s my beef! I run a small internet business with 250k customers pa. we answer every query. Adobe answer what they feel like answering. It’s not a resource problem. Their team are on the case quickly. They are just ducking their responsibility to respond to their users. And I really don’t get why I should accept that.

Yes, I was working in internal IT support for many years and our team had the rule to answer within an hour and deliver a fix in 24 hours if had the ability to do it.
Let me continue to cross my fingers for you.

Hi everyone, thanks for all the feedback.  We do intend to implement a red-eye removal feature in Lightroom at some point in the future.  We do not yet have a specific release date planned.

Thanks,
Ben
