I currently use a folder structure in Lightroom that looks like:
I copy original files into YYYYMMDD-Event/Original/, do basic corrections and culling, and export to YYYYMMDD-Event/Selects/. I do the same thing when exporting from Selects to Output... I have tried using the "Same Folder as Original Photo" with a subfolder of "../Selects", but i get an illegal character message. Is there a way to use relative paths in export presets? I'm not against using publishing services to accomplish this, but I am having the same problem...
