Timothy Armes has today announced the public release of PLUS for Lightroom, a plug-in for embedded PLUS usage rights into images exported from Lightroom 2.
With publishers such as McGraw Hill, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and Pearson adopting the PLUS Picture Licensing Glossary and announcing their support, the international PLUS standard is rapidly becoming recognised as the definitive way to specify usage rights for digital works, and is the result of years of collaboration between the many and varied members of the PLUS coalition (http://www.useplus.com).
With PLUS for Lightroom it’s easier than ever for Lightroom users to create and embed PLUS licenses. You may read more about Timothy’s motivation and objectives on his blog (http://www.timothyarmes.com/blog/2009/10/plus-for-lightroom-manage-your-rights/), and you can download the trial version from the Photographer’s Toolbox (http://photographers-toolbox.com/products/plusforlightroom.php)
