The New Sensei Search in Lightroom for Mobile: How it Works (And How It Doesn’t)

Hi, gang — it’s a Holiday week – should be a fun one (with some solid football). 🙂

Today I did a video about the new Search feature “Sensei” added to Lightroom for your Mobile Device (called Lightroom CC now, but if I said Lightroom CC there’s nothing that would tell you I was talking about the Mobile version, so…). Anyway, this is worth watching to see how it works, and how it doesn’t.

Hope you found that helpful (interesting? encouraging? something?).

Have a great Monday everybody!

  1. Great!
    The interesting thing is when we can add the keywords selected by Adobe Sensei to the photos … see myKeyworder plugin for Lightroom Classic CC 😉

  2. I find that some photos that are in collections that a NOT synced often show up in these searches. How does that happen?

      • Rob – I think it’s also photos that are in your Lightroom “Camera Roll” (for lack of a better term) because some of my search results had images that aren’t in a synced collection. I haven’t tested this, mind you, but that’s the only explanation I can come up with.

      • Rob – I just tested it – that’s it! It pulls in photos from your “All Photos” folder – not just synched collections.

        • Ok, I think I understand what you are saying. Photos can be synced without being a synced collection (such as photos captured via the built-in camera module while not in a specific collection, will be synced, but will not be in a collection).

  3. Thanks for the video Scott. What I really noticed is how good your iPhone photos turned out at the Kiss concert. I’ve always struggled to get good iPhone shots at concerts – can you do a video on that sometime? Thanks!

    • Hi Gary: The trick is – to get seats really close to the stage. I didn’t do anything but hold my phone up and press the shutter button – but we were only like 6 rows back, and the stage was super bright with all those lights and iPhone do great in great light. So, if there’s a trick to it, it’s sit really close. 🙂
