    is a link really public?

    moxlin500

      I'm reviewing the functionality of Lightroom after being informed Revel is going away. When sharing a link to photo collection, Lightroom gives a warning anyone with the link can see the photos - is this really true? Revel allows conto over who can see which collections which is why I chose that software for my family, along with the ease of use for non-technical family members.

       

      The thought of not being able to keep our photos private will be making us move elsewhere. Privacy may not be a big deal to Adobe and Gen-Xers but there are still some folks who want to control access to their information.

          Hi,

           

          Yes anyone to whom you will give that link will be able to view the images in the collection.

           

          Thanks

            It's a specially generated link for each collection. You can change between private and sharing at any time. You also have the option to allow downloads or prevent downloads - see image below.

              What I'm not seeing is the capability that Revel has to manage actual people who have access to your account without having to send a link - you can then move between libraries and albums without needing the link, or you send a link to obe album to someone who can then only see that album but nothing else.

               

              I'm also not seeing a way of commenting back and forth, just stars/flags or am I not seeing that functionality either?

               

              So far this is a bad option for what my famity use Revel for and we'll be looking for something else. Very sad as we liked Revel. Bad move, adobe.
