For example, I often export a folder of full-res images, and then go back and do the same images as lo-res with watermarks, that I export to an "email" folder inside the hi-res folder. That way, I email the little ones for clients to peruse, and then send the full-res after they agree to buy. I know I can set up two presets and do them separately, but thought I'd ask. Thanks- using LR 4.1
I guess the question I would ask is why? I can understand the smaller versions for client review but until or if they actually order, what is the point of creating the larger versions? They can be created at any time after the order.
Just my opinion but it seems like you would end up with folders of never-to-be-used hi-res files that take up space-unless you are planning to delete your originals-which, again, in my opinion would beg the question, why?
Because they always want the full-res images.
Just kidding. Valid point- I've just done it that way so I don't have to get back into LR at a later date. But that is valuable real estate on the HD...
It can be usefull in certain case. For exemple, I've done a festival coverage last week and have to give the image to community managers and website editors during the event. Community manager need 800px large image, website editors 500px ones. I've to make 2 differents publication presets (publication because i need to get tracks of what I've already exported). And yes, they didn't know how to change the size of an image .
Interesting Screen Name. I have a dog named Chuck. But anyway: Create two presets for export. Right click on the group of images and select Export, select preset. Right Click again and Select other Preset. It is a total of 4 mouse clicks and (I just tested) can be done in under 2 seconds
Yes... it's finaly what I have done and because it's not possible to do that with publication services, I've loose track of my precedent exports. But I agree, this is the solution... for now. It would be useful to have publication service with two or several format in the same service. And I agree too, it's not the right place to discuss about futur addition to LR.
If you are willing to use a plugin, PublishServiceAssistant supports single-click multi-format publishing, if you prefer publish over export.
(You still have to define a separate publish services for each format, but then you can publish all with one invocation).
