I’m excited to announce several updates across the Lightroom CC ecosystem including People View, improved Search, and refined Sharing controls. 

The following three features are available across Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and ChromeOS:

  • People View Using Adobe Sensei, Lightroom CC’s new People view can help find, organize, and view the people in your photos by grouping them together — with minimal time spent manually tagging images. 

  • Improved Search Get better search results with automatic search suggestions provided to you as you type in the search box. Lightroom CC provides suggestions for metadata like cameras, lenses, aperture, ISO, locations, keywords, and more.

  • Share Tab The new Share tab gives you an easy way to browse and access shared albums and images that are created using Lightroom Web – (more details below).

The following feature is available on Mac and Windows:
