Question: Any way to access preview image data?

Jun 29, 2010 3:22 PM

I would love to be able to write plugins that can analyze actual image data. For example, an exposure normalization plugin that would adjust exposure based on a common point of reference on the picture would really rock. Anybody have any clue how image data could be extracted from the preview data?

    Yeah, I'd like to write something using the image data as well. Did you find any way?

    I'd like to be able to use image previews too in my dialogs (maybe to overlay some informations on the image).

    I'm guessing right now that one would have to do an export in the background and use the generated images... not very practical...

    What about rendering a new file using LrExportSession?


    EDIT: Sorry, just saw that renambot already suggested it - seems like a reasonable (if inefficient) work-around though.
