Hi, I am currently processing an event with around 500 competitors, each with their own folder of processed images. The LR processing is done but I now need to export all of them TWICE (to upload both thumbnails and the actual files to my website) – as you can imagine it's a mammoth and very time-consuming task. Does anyone know if Lightroom has the capacity to automate this task? Is there perhaps a plugin available that can automate bulk, multiple folder, exporting?
Any help/suggestions/ideas appreciated! Thanks.
Exporting all the images at once is simple as long as you do not need the folder structure maintained during the export.
Do you need this?
As ManiacJoe said, exporting large numbers of images isn't a problem.
Lightroom doesn't have the built-in ability to maintain the folder structure for exported files, but a plug-in by Jeffrey Friedl can add that capability: Folder Publisher.
Yes, I need the folder structure maintained.
