CLIENTSELECTS LIGHTROOM PLUG-IN
Lightroom has a well defined workflow for cataloging, processing and
publishing photos but one place where standard functionality falls short
for a professional photographer is how to integrate shopping cart
from a website or simply list of files selected by the client into the
workflow. Manual matching of full or partial names could be a lengthy
process. If you have 2000 images taken at the wedding and your client
selected 200 out of them, it might take you an hour just to go through
your catalog and precisely match client's selection against complete
set in your catalog. This is where ClientSelects
comes into place. You just load list of selected photos into plug-in,
set how you want to mark client's selection, click Search button and
have all your picks marked in a few seconds.
- Download latest version of plug-in
here and extract
it into directory of your choice.
- Go to File/Plug-In Manager, click Add and select directory
where you place the plug-in.
- Plug-in should be available under Library/Plug-In Extras/ClientSelect.
Plug-in will attempt to match entered search patterns to the filename
in your currently open folder. If match is detected then all options
selected in Apply Metadata
section will be applied to the image.
Search patterns could be full or partial image names and extensions
are ignored because proofs selected by the client are usually JPG format
but you would want to mark your RAW images.
