    Lightroom – Real support for Apple Live Photos (Highly demanded Feature Request)

    Mr. Plum Bum Level 1

      Hi there,

       

      since more than three years now, there is this great photo feature called "Live Photos" on Apple's mobile devices. But there is still no real support for Live Photos in Lightroom since then. That's a little bit weird because Lightroom claims to support nearly all common camera models with frequent camera updates still lacks support of Live Photos.

      The problem is, it's not enough to just import the still image and the corresponding movie file so that in the end there two separated files which I never can't export back to the Apple photos app as an original Live Photo. The only solution is to support Live Photos in the same way they are working on an iOS device like iPhone or iPad.

      What is the reason for the lack of support? Is it a legal problem. Are there unacceptable restrictions or  from Apple? What else? Because I really would like to go back fully to Adobe Lightroom but can't right now as I'm using Live Photo very often. You'll love it too especially when you have kids or a lot of action shots.

       

      I asked google, the adobe support hotline, the german forum but no one was close enough to the Lightroom developer team to give a qualified answer. And if the answer is that not enough professionals are interested in this feature, I don't care as long as somebody qualified could give me a final explanation why it's not supported or if there will be a 1 percent chance it ever will be. And with qualified I mean somebody working at the Adobe Lightroom team.

       

      Please excuse my english but I'm no native english speaker and this topic is a very emotional one because I really love Lightroom but it almost got useless for me because of the lack of real support for Apple Live Photos. And as long as I want to work with an all-in-one solution – to not double my amount of work – I have to stick with the very unprofessional Apple Photos app. : (

       

      So, please Adobe, c'mon! Reach out to your (paying) supporters! Make an official statement! Pleeeeeease!!!
