Why am I unable to access comments section in Lightroom 5 Library module? I have been using Elements and they have an information section that I can leave notes on each image. Why not Lightroom??
Hi piper do,
I'm guessing you are referring to the "Comments" panel in the Library module on the right hand side. These comments are only supported for images that are synced to Lightroom Mobile. Otherwise you get the message "Comments are not supported here." This is more of a social media type of feature.
If you want to type noted that are associated with your image, you'll be better off using the Metadata panel. The default metadata is typically shown but there is a pull down menu next to the header that will allow you to choose a multitude of other fields. You can use something like "Caption" or "Description" to add notes to your heart's content.
