Hello, I'm a photographer, not a programmer but I'm looking for a solution to automate what I do twice a week with Adobe Lightroom...I need a plugin that will do the following:
1) Take a set of photos and Randomize the Order (i.e. mix them up not A-Z or Z-A or by rating, etc)
2) Apply certain develop presets that I choose randomly to some of those photos
3) Export& Upload the photos to a facebook group or fan-page
I already have a plugin which does task #3 so really having something do 1&2 is all I need but if it's possible to do it all with one plugin then that would obviously be better...
Can this be done?
Off the top of my head I can't think of an SDK provided mechanism to modify
the user sort order (item 1 in your list). I'm pretty sure the rest is
(Apologies for the brevity - sent from my Android)
Regarding randomization, the plugin could take the current select of photos and insert them into a new collection in random order. That collection could then be used for the export.
