20140622_syncomatic Syncomatic and LrMobile

I’ve updated Syncomatic to facilitate an interesting new workflow involving LrMobile. Shoot Raw+JPEG in the field, import the JPEGs and adjust them in LrMobile, and then sync that work to the raw files with Syncomatic.

Caption builder added to Search and Replace plugin

Anyone want to try a new feature that’s coming in my Search and Replace plugin? The new feature is called “caption builder” and lets you build up captions from other fields.

slices Search & Replace 1.45

I’ve just released version 1.45 of my Search and Replace plug-in. This version is a significant upgrade. As well as including new Lr5 fields and features enabled in Lr5, I’ve really updated the layout and added some handy new capabilities to the existing features for searching for and replacing text in your metadata.

listview1.66 List View 1.66

I’ve just released version 1.66 of my ListView plug-in which displays images in a list style just like in most other DAM programs and lets you export metadata to Excel or other apps.

Changing the case of text

I’ve just uploaded version 1.41 of my Search and Replace plug-in.

It has a bit of tidying up, more language support, and also adds a button to change the case of text. Each time you click the button, it cycles on to a different case. So if you type some captions in capitals, it can convert them to lower case, capitalize . . .

Syncomatic 1.44

I’ve just released version 1.44 of my Syncomatic plug-in which synchronizes the metadata of files with matching names.

The change is a “Merge Keywords” checkbox which replaces one called “total keyword sync” which sneaked into 1.43 but didn’t do anything except provoke a few puzzled emails. “Merge Keywords” works, and I hope it’s a more intuitive name for the feature.

So what does . . .

List View 1.59

I’ve just released ListView 1.59 with a series of significant changes and improvements

List View plugin updated

I’ve now released version 1.57 of my List View plug-in. The main changes are:

Thumbnails are now displayed in Lightroom 4
Export to CSV format – better for anyone who uses the Numbers spreadsheet or for data exchange with databases
Close to Sorted Collection button. One thing people like about the plug-in is sorting by almost any field, so this button saves the . . .

Locktastic 1.25

I’ve just released a revision to my little Locktastic plug-in which is designed to help photographers who “lock” certain pictures in the camera. Some do this to identify pictures they particularly want to work on when they get back to their desks.

As a result of a user request, the plug-in now bypasses Lightroom’s Import dialog and imports only those images. . . .

Search and Replace plug-in – version 1.35 coming

If you use my Search and Replace Lightroom plug-in, I’m currently updating it. So if there’s something you want, now’s a good time to ask.

List View – new Lightroom plug-in

It’s been bubbling away for a while, and some people saw it late last year, but in the next few days I’ll be releasing a new plug-in – List View.

It does exactly what the name suggests and provides a list view which some of us feel is sorely missed in Lightroom’s Library. After all, it’s a lot easier to review . . .

A perfect shot – in the foot?

No matter how much the Lightroom ethos is about designing a program for photographers from the ground up, there are still those atavistic folk who want to do things just as they suppose they’ve always done them. So every so often you’ll get people wanting Undo to be Alt-Ctrl-Z because it’s how Photoshop has always worked, forgetting that the vast . . .

Complex file renaming in Lightroom made simple – thanks to the Search and Replace plug-in

Ever spend ages thinking up ways to convince someone a task is far from easy, and that they should just give up on the idea – and then the solution appears just as you were about to hit the Send button?

Well, the other night I had an interesting email from someone who has my Search and Replace plug-in for Lightroom:

. . .

Search Replace Transfer 1.30

Search Replace Transfer 1.30 fixes a bug, which 1.29 kindly introduced, but it also contains a new menu command – “Brute force” search which creates a regular or “dumb” collection and then adds images to it by performing a “brute force” search through the selected items or through the entire catalogue.

The intention is to fill . . .

Lightroom – finding all images shot at a certain time of the year

Recently I’ve seen a number of Lightroom users asking how they could find all images shot at a certain time of the year.

Now, if you have your head screwed on you would have included seasons in your keywords. For instance, an image of snow might include “winter” in the keywords (unless you live at the North or South Poles) while . . .

Capture Time to Exif – released

Capture Time to Exif is essentially an in-Lightroom interface for Exiftool, Phil Harvey’s highly-respected “platform-independent Perl library plus command-line application for reading, writing and editing meta information in a wide variety of files”.

With Capture Time to Exif you can:

Update the Date Time Original EXIF field of scanned images. Lightroom’s filter panel and smart collections can then . . .

SiteMaker as a single gallery

Here’s another preview of my SiteMaker web gallery showing its huge flexibility.
May I, as the saying goes, draw your attention to:

Here it’s a single “contact sheet” gallery. SiteMaker can be either for a complete photo site or for a proofs gallery of a single set of images – or both

All the thumbnails and their descriptions are shown in this case, . . .

New Lightroom plug-in – CaptureTime to Exif

CaptureTime to Exif is my latest Lightroom 3 plug-in. Essentially it’s an in-Lightroom interface for Exiftool:

Initially it was for Lightroom users whose catalogue contains scanned images and who wanted to make the scans’ Date Time Original EXIF field correspond to when the pictures were originally taken rather than when they were scanned. But people said they wanted to add the . . .

SiteMaker for Lightroom

SiteMaker is the name of a new and very-soon-to-be-unleashed web gallery for Lightroom 3 which aims to create a complete web site within Lightroom.

The front page is designed so you can highlight three key groups of images – for example “Latest work”, “Landscape portfolio”, “Black and white portraits”. So the top part of the site has three full width images . . .

OpenDirectly released

I’ve just (finally) released Open Directly, my plug-in for Lightroom 2 or 3 that opens images directly in another program. The other program may be another raw converter, or it can be any program the user chooses. In either case, the plug-in simply sends the original file and invokes the other program.
