Lightroom CC (desktop) has also received some attention particularly in the area of sharing, adding photos and develop presets.
Share to Web
Previously, you could configure Lightroom CC to share an album but many customers were looking for greater refinement. With 2.1, Adobe have incorporated the ability to filter the contents of a shared album according to the photo rating or flag. The new filters are part of ‘Share Settings’ which can be accessed via ‘Share to Web’.
Add Photos (Import)
The Add Photos (Import) window now includes the ability to select albums that are contained within folders. The albums are displayed in the form of a hierarchy as shown below.
File Type badges are now displayed on the photo thumbnails in the Add Photos window.
Set as Target Album
Whilst not actually new to version 2.1 ‘Set to Target Album’ didn’t receive much, if any, explanation when it first appeared in 2.0. With this feature you can quickly add photos to a target album from anywhere in your library using either the keyboard shortcut ‘T’. To configure an album as the target, you first find the album then either right-mouse-click [Ctrl+click (Windows) or Cmd+click (Mac)] on the album. Alternatively, click on the 3-dot menu at top right corner of grid content view.
Notice that you can also delete an album from this menu.
Partially Compatible Presets
As with Lightroom Classic 8.1 develop presets in Lightroom CC (desktop) 2.1 now includes the ability to control the visibility of partially compatible presets. However, unlike it Lightroom Classic it is much easier to find plus toggle on/off if desired. To enable/disable this feature you simply click on the presets 3-dot menu then click on ‘Hide Partially Compatible Presets’.
