Despite the recent updating of LR/Mogrify, Timothy Armes has found time to create another useful Plugin. LR/Transporter can create sidecar text and summary files on export. These files can then be optionally FTP’d with the photo and copied to another location.
What I find this useful for is my Folderblog based Photoblog. Folderblog seems to be unsupported by the author, but I’m loathe to change with so many photos uploaded with it. in LR/Transport I create a text file that contains the photo title on the first line and the caption on the second, from the file Metadata. This is saved as a text file with the photo and both are FTP’d to my server. This way I’ve no further editing to do on the page. Perfect! By way of disclaimer, Tim did ask me to test this prior to release, which I was more than happy to do. The plugin information would have been posted even if I had no involvement.
From the LR/Transporter page:
“LR/Transporter is a Lightroom export plugin that I’ve written that allows you make use of the metadata embedded in your photos.
