The SDK does not provide support for tethering.
I'm not sure what might be possible by "thinking outside the box".
We are looking for a developer who is familliar with developing a plugin for Lightroom 3.
We know the SDK & API for Lightroom is a bit unique, and we want to work with someone who either has developed for Lightroom already, or someone very familiar with the process.
We would like a plug in for Lightroom 3 that creates web photo galleries. We are not looking for something too difficult! In fact, many plugins already exist, but none do exactly what we need. So, we need a custom one designed for us.
The plug in should look like and work like the photo gallery plug ins already available for Lightroom, such as the standard HTML web galleries Lightroom 3 has standard, as well as the Airtight Simpleviewer plugin. Both of these have their advantages and disadvantages. But both are fairly flexible in what they offer, and the user can make galleries that look and behave in many ways.
Our plug in needs to avoid flash all together. We like J Query code such as this one:
The galleries should have a download option that lets the viewer download a low res, med res, or high res file.
The galleries need a search field where users can search for key words or metadata.
This is the basic idea. We would like to develop this project right away. Please contact us.
