collection sync on web in LR 5.7 needs to work better for getting client feedback. 1) no Adobe login needed, 2) simple for client to use, and 3) better layout

Yes, agree on the Adobe login - it should have social logins (Facebook/Twitter/Google etc.)

Can you expand on what you're hoping for in points 2 and 3? What difficulties are your clients going to have? How would you like to see the layout improved.

...Or a guest login - clients may not want to attach their social media accounts for work that may be private to them.

Points 2/3 - just mean to say, keep it simple so that a client (i.e. non-photographer, non-Adobe user, non-technical) can use it to easily provide feedback to the photographer.

Web collaboration is a great feature - it really streamlines my workflow - looking forward to more dev on it.

That's great Derek, but Adobe obviously think they've done that with the current layout (excluding the Adobe login) so are there specific things you think would confuse non-photographer, non-Adobe user, non-technical types?

simple enough for moms and dads!! They shouldn't need to enlist in son or daughters help every time they go online! .:)

These are some of the comments that I have had:

1) regards to apple id

"WHY?"

"What are they (adobe ) going to do with my e-mail?"

"Is it safe ,secure?"

"How much junk mail am I going to get?"

" I have enough passwords to remember"

"Why Do I need to sign up? What am I signing up for?"

I don't know, will need try this feature and get client feedback. Likely won't use this feature until the login issue is sorted - I wouldn't ask a client to sign up for an Adobe account to provide me with feedback.

I Am excited for the possibilities of this new addition to LR.Thank You Adobe.

I very much want to see comments and likes on MY screen ,but all visitors to the site DO NOT!

I can see the value some times for "all" to see whats been said or liked by others. But most times I don't need or want the masses to be able to comment on already whats been said (back to each other)....I don't need yet another world war. Its not just Professionals that will be viewing images...bro & sisters, relatives,extended family (ha! we all know what that can be like)

If the purpose is to get feedback, it should be for my feedback not everyone else.I would like genuine comments not influenced by someone that may or may not help in giving feedback.

Perhaps An option for photog to make likes,and comments public or not.That could be at different levels as well.( of who sees what,and how much)
I can see comments as a two way street for some situations but not for all.As well as a 3+ way.(feedback to others ,from others)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Collaborating with clients using Lightroom Web: the obstacle of Adobe ID requirem....

I posted on Julieanne Kost's blog about this (as have others, both there and on Facebook), and she suggested sharing this here. The ability to share photos with clients using Lightroom Web is awesome, except for one very significant issue: clients have to set up an AdobeID to be able 'like' or comment on images. This is such a barrier - clients might not know who Adobe are, and be reluctant to sign up for something they might not understand, and we have to spend time explaining to them why this is ok, at the risk of confusing them completely. This would be the perfect tool for photographer and clients (or friends and family for non Pros) to communicate, were it not for this requirement. Please consider removing it, please, please, please! What would be ideal is if somehow they could sign in or register with their email, so that we can reply to them directly and in private when they comment on an image, but that might be asking too much too soon!
