Two New Lightroom Plugins: Folder Publisher and Collection Publisher

I released two new plugins for Adobe Lightroom today, my Folder Publisher and Collection Publisher. They're what my old “Tree Publisher” plugin should have been, with many extras. They allow you to replicate the folder or collection hierarchy in Lightroom out to local disk, and optionally even FTP the results somewhere.

I was never happy with the old tree publisher, but I'm quite happy with these two new ones. Combined with some big changes to my Crop for iPad plugin that I pushed recently, I've completely revamped my workflow to get a copy of my portfolio onto my iPad. I wrote at length about that in “Getting Photos from Lightroom to an iPad is a Lot Harder (to Do Well) Than You Think; Here’s How” just three months ago, but due to strangeness with iTunes and Apple's “Photos” app, the whole affair just felt kludgy and unsatisfying.

Fast forward to today and the workflow feels much better, and will be the subject of a new blog post soon. But first I had to release these plugins, so here we are.
