Jeffrey's Lightroom Exporter

view photos

An app by Jeffrey Friedl

No screenshot available

Plugin for Adobe Lightroom (Lr2, Lr3, Lr4) allowing you to both Export and Publish photos to Flickr directly from within Lightroom.

This plugin is unrelated to the Flickr plugin supplied by Adobe. Mine is more powerful, but more complex.

I have a bunch of other plugins, including for geoencoding, exposure data plotting, video-asset management, metadata control, proximity search, and more. See my Lightroom Goodies page for the complete list. (Also, see the "Lightroom Exchange" button in the lower-left of Lightroom's plugin manager for Adobe's central listing of all kinds of Lightroom plugins, presets, and such.)

(Note: use comments here in the App Garden to express your thoughts about this plugin to other users or potential users, but to communicate with me (report bugs or make feature requests) please use email, or make a comment on the plugin's home page.)

Love all of Jeffrey Friedl plugins for Lightroom. Of course it's a tie with his Facebook plugin for the one that get's the most use.

alan ranger photography says:

has to be one of my favourite plug in for LR. I wonder how it will be impacted by LR3 which will have built in publishing to flickr and a 2 way feedback to LR for comments, favourites etc. If they go the whole hog and allow you to synchronise, tags, sets and various flickr stats back into LR i cant see the plugin competing unless Jeffrey beats them to it and does it better (am hoping arent I?)

I would be lost without your plugins. I hope you are getting lots of donations.

It seems like Adobe has caught on because from what I hear Lightroom 3 is going to include Flickr exporting built-in. It probably won't be as good as your plugin though so hopefully you keep making it.

Just wanted to let you know about something recent from LR3. Some uploads went without keywords/tags, some did, others won't update with new ones went re-published. I know we're still in beta, but I still think you ought to know. Thanks again.

therider says:

Awesome and a must have plugin for LR users who regularly uploads to Flickr. The best point about this plugin is the ability to keep the original filename in the description for each image. Before this I had to painfully copy the filename from title to description after every upload. This is such a lifesaver ! Keep up the good work !

emptysquare says:

Works great. I haven't seen the authentication issues others report; it worked fine for me. I disagree with leneslana's claim that the plugin's no good if you edit photos from LR into Photoshop -- just select the Photoshop file you created, export to Flickr, works as expected.

A stunning piece of work. Just about every setting you might want to twiddle can be twiddled; every slightest bug seems to be fixed within days (which given that this isn't Jeffery's job, is astounding); and works the way the LR3 plug-in should have been designed from the off (hint: Adobe - make Jeffrey an offer he can't refuse!)

Jeffrey Friedl says:

FYI, now that they're putting the app title on the page of photos sent with the app, my old name ("Jeffrey's Export-to-Flickr Lightroom Plugin") is looking a bit too verbose... it's sort of ugly there on every page. So, I've changed the title to something a bit shorter. Hope that's okay with everyone.

Tri Monster, the plugin's page on my blog is the best place to contact me about it, but in your case, you've got the "format" selection (in the Export Dialog) set to "Original". Set it to "JPEG" and you'll get your develop changes.

I've been using Lightroom 3 Beta for a -scratching head- few months... Love L3b. As Jeffery says the plugin doesn't work so well with L3b. For me it uploads one or two images then I get an error that Flickr is receiving 0kb images. :(
Looking with hope to a future date when that gets sorted.
