Demo of the "Multi Folder Exporter"

What problem is solved?

Lightroom is unable to export a series of photos into multiple folders, optionally based on it's contents i.e. it's keywords.

Driven by keywords, you can export your photos in multiple directories/folders, without moving, copying. For some clients this is a real time safer in their workflow.

Trial version

Download the trial version and experience for yourself! This version has all the functionality but limited to 5 images.

How does the plug-in work

During the export the plug-in will retrieve all keywords and based on them it will export the photos in directories with the keyword name. If a photo has multiple keywords the photo will be copied into multiple directories.
Also, you can enter "General folders" which are always created, with or without keywords.

For example. During a photo shoot all the employees where photographed, both individually and as a team.
When exporting each portrait of an employee is copied in his/her directory and the team photo is copied to all employee folders.

Plug-in options

Multi Folder Exporter Lightroom plug-in, LightroomStatistics, LightroomStatistics,com

Multiple keywords can be entered in the text boxes of the plug-in dialog as shown above. The individual keywords should be separated by a comma.

General folders

When checked, "General folders" will always be created independent of the keywords and all photos in the export will be added to them.

Also the General folders and the filters can be combined!

Default: unchecked.

Filtering

In some situations you might want to exclude certain keywords, for example a company name which is the same for all employees, or a location, ....

The plug-in is able to filter the plug-ins. You have three options

  1. All keywords
    No filtering, a directory is created for each keyword of a photo
  2. Only these keywords (White-list)
    Only the keywords entered are exported, all others are ignored
  3. All keywords except these (Black-list)
    All keywords are exported except those entered.

When using a white-list or a black-list, the keywords should be separated by a comma.

Default: all keywords.

Example

All employees of Shell have been photographed. As keywords, the company name, team name and employee name have been entered.

Use case 1: when exporting you want to ignore the company name keyword, since it is always the same.
Solution: create a black list filter with Shell.

Use case 2: when exporting you want you export all employees based into directories based on the team name.
Solution: create a white list with the team names, separated by a comma.

Use case 3: as use case 2 AND all the photos should also be exported to a directory call Wordpress.
Solution: since "Wordpress" is probably not a meaningful keyword and all photos should be exported to it, enter "Wordpress" as a general folder.

Sub folder

It is possible to create a sub folder inside the multiple folders. In this case the images will be exported to the sub folder instead of the parent multiple folders.
One client used it to export to an "images" folders. Afterwards they created other folders like "Documents" etc.
