I’ve been testing out Lightroom CC for a bit. I am considering a switch from Apple Photos. Is there a reason you cannot support Live Photo’s? Google Photos does on apple device, so I know its not a totally closed down format. Even if you could only view them on apple devices it would still be nice. Sometimes the Live Photo feature captures really special moments. I’m not sure I could give them up.

Lightroom CC has support for Live Photos. Can you tell us what you are not able to do with regard to Live Photos?

It doesn’t seem to have any support. None of my auto upload photos retain the live portion. The migration from Apple Photos split any Live Photo’s into a separate photo and video file, which is far from optimal.

Organization-wise, supporting "stacks" via mobile would address the issue of the separate photo and videos of Live Photos. Granted, it wouldn't display like a Live Photo does on iOS, but I think it would meet many users organizational needs.

That would. Google Photos has great Live Photo implementation. Almost just like Apples. It would be nice for Adobe to tap into that API.

That's exactly why I'm still hesitating. Transfer all my Photos library to a subscription based service is a big commitment. And it doesn't even support live photo? I think I'm inclined to still use Photos.
