Just create two export Presets, one for each situation, instead of changing "all the inputs". A couple clicks and you are done on every export and it will be less prone to error.
If you aren't too averse to using plugins, there are at least these possibilities:
* ExportManager (initiate multiple concurrent exports with one stroke). - post-process actions not supported.
* PublishServicesAssistant (initiate multiple publishes with one stroke). - if you use Exportant's FastCache (post-process action), then the same photo will only be rendered once, regardless of how many times it's exported.
(all are free and written by me).
You could also use the built in hard drive publish services. Create two services, one for each location/size. Within each publish service, create a smart folder that refers to a single collection. Then dragging a photo to that one collection will queue the images for export in both services.
You'd still have to visit each of the services to click "publish."
Removing the images from the collection automatically deletes the from the hard drive on the next publish, also.

Similarly, you can have a smart "folder" (collection) which refers to a single keyword. Assigning the keyword to a photo schedules it for publishing on both services.., and removing the keyword schedules it for deletion.. - you get the idea...
Hi Rob, I'd like to try your ExportManager plugin . . . where can I find it? (Found it referenced on another forum from many years ago, but the link was bad).
Unfortunately Rob has been missing since January, and his website is down, too.
Hmm, bummer. I hope he's alright.
Are there other solutions to exporting at multiple sizes and into different folders in one go?
I cannot see any solution other than using two Export Presets. Then the procedure is-
1. Select all images to export
2. Right-click one image, Choose 'Export > '1000@72dpi', Left-click.
3. Right-click again, Choose '4000@300dpi', Left-click.
That's 4 clicks on the mouse!
