Adobe has just announced a new Technology Preview section on Lightroom Web, where Creative Cloud subscribers can play with features that are still in development.  The first feature introduced is Search, which allows you to search for objects and themes in your photos – for example, find all photos with dogs in them or all photos with red in them – without having added keywords. The feature has not been perfected at this point, but it is nonetheless already very impressive. My fingers are  crossed, hoping that it makes its way into Lightroom Desktop in the not-too-distant future.

As background, Lightroom Web allows you to access, edit and share your photos from anywhere using just a web browser. Either sync (upload) collections of photos from Lightroom on your desktop computer or upload photos directly to Lightroom Web.

For users already comfortable with Lightroom Web, you can read below about the process of activating the feature. For those who are not familiar with Lightroom Web, watch my video tutorial to see the new feature in action:


Accessing the feature:

  • Sync collections of photos from Lightroom Desktop.
  •  Go to lightroom.adobe.com and log in.
  • On the right, click on Open Technology Previews

  • Check the box next to Search, then click on Apply Changes

  • In the top left, click on the Photos tab. Type your search term(s) in the new Search box.

Along with updates to Lightroom Desktop and Mobile, Adobe has released an update of Lightroom Web. Lightroom web is available to Creative Cloud subscribers, at lightroom.adobe.com. If you don’t have a subscription to sign in with, you can visit this same page, click on Try on Web, and sign in with an Adobe ID. This will give you a 30 day free trial Creative Cloud subscription.

New in this update are:

  • A new Welcome page, with access to your collections synced from Lightroom Desktop, news on what’s new, and more.

  • Editing capabilities. In addition to rating and flagging photos, we can now do basic edits – cropping, applying some presets, Basic panel tone and presence edits, working on individual colors with the Color / B&W panel, and Dehaze from the Effects panel.  These edits are least responsive using Safari, and most responsive using Google Chrome. Adobe is working on improving Safari performance.

  • The ability to upload photos directly into Lightroom Web and the Creative Cloud. Imagine that you are away from home and have access to a computer and the internet, but not to the Lightroom software, or your catalog. Upload your memory card of photos (raw, JPEG, etc.) to Lightroom Web, work on them in your browser, and then your files and your edits will automatically appear back in Lightroom on your Desktop computer at home!
