Syncomatic 4.0

Syncomatic 4.0 includes performance improvements and extra options

Syncomatic 3.3 (ie 4.0)

Not much has changed in 3.3 – except for performance….

Search & Replace 1.7 (ie 2.0)

I said April, and it’s the 30th, so here is Search & Replace 1.7 with extra features and general tidying up to make it more intuitive to use.

Capture Time to EXIF 1.26

I’ve just released version 1.26 of my plugin Capture Time to EXIF with changes like more EXIF fields like camera can be written by the plugin and improved preview when user chooses to use the Capture Date entered in the Metadata panel.

Open Directly 2.0 (beta)

Version 2 has a range of enhancements – number of apps increased from 6 to 15, second quick menu added. The beta is here, called version 1.7 but will be released as version 2 later this week. If you already own it, the upgrade will be free.

Syncomatic version 3

I’ve just released version 3 of my Syncomatic plugin which syncs metadata between files with matching names or within stacks.

Filtering by months, captions etc with Search and Replace

Responding to a forum query about finding images by month, I write this little tip about using the Library Filter in conjunction with the plugin’s Refresh Workflow Filters command. This menu command Plugin Extras > Refresh Workflow Filters analyses the selected photos and the results can be shown in Library Filter columns:       Notice …read more

X-LR is released

My plugin X-LR, which automatically applies Fuji film simulations in Lightroom, went through a great 60 day preview period. It’s now released!

Cropping with Syncomatic

Syncomatic is my plugin that syncs metadata and adjustments between files with similar names or within stacks. But one thing has annoyed me ever since I wrote it 6-7 years ago – it couldn’t sync the crop. I always wanted to do it – why wouldn’t I? – but for reasons best known to themselves …read more

List View 1.84 Excel to Lightroom

Post updated 5 March 2016: I’ve just uploaded the next version of ListView. The zip file also includes an Excel add-in that can send data directly from Excel to Lightroom. At the moment this is writeback is limited to Windows users – Apple broke the mechanism I’ve been using – and it does require some Excel skill. But I just don’t think there is an easier way to get external metadata into Lightroom.

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.

How to use Caption Builder

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.

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.

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 …read more

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 …read more

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 …read more

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, …read more

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 …read more
