how to make a "new photo to publish" be considered "published" without actually publishing it?

how to make a "new photo to publish" be considered "published" without actually publishing it?


I have some photos that are really just stubs that represent the other "real" photos to publish.


I don't want to have to do a mock export/rendering of them just to make them appear published.


Any ideas?

    Could you make use of LrPublishedCollection's


    pubCollection:addPhotoByRemoteId( photo, remoteID, remoteUrl, published )


    where "published" is defined as "(Boolean) True to mark the photo as "already published", false to mark as "need to publish""?

    In one of my plugins I have a requirement to download and add photos from the remote server and populate the newly created published collection in Lightroom.  In this routine, I use the following code to add the images to a published collection using the method provided by Don above.



    catalog:withWriteAccessDo('createcollection', function()


         newcollection = v:createPublishedCollection(h.title)





    catalog:withWriteAccessDo( 'NPGSetUpdates', function()


         newphoto = catalog:addPhoto(newpath)







    The biggest thing here is that adding a photo like this requires the code to reside within the withWriteAccessDo block.
