Today is the nine-year anniversary of my plugins for Adobe Lightroom. It was on November 16, 2007 that I released my first ones, export plugins for Zenfolio and for SmugMug.

Now, nine years later, after many having been added and a few having been retired, I have about 45 plugins available.

Today I released a few minor updates, including a new Publish At... feature of my Bag-o-Goodies plugin. It lets you schedule a publish operation for later in the evening.

I lost track of the count of updates I made prior to Lightroom 2, but since then, considering only the plugins currently available, I've made 4,189 updates (counting today's).

Thanks for all the amazing work you’ve done! Your plugins have made my photography processing life a little easier. Still happy to buy you a drink the next time I’m in Kyoto.

Thank you very much for the time, effort and passion you dedicate to your plugins. Lightroom wouldn’t be the same for me without them. Here’s to the next 9 years! 🙂

Thank you for your plugins. Earlier this week I finally processed several years of GPS tracks with your plugin. It was easy to understand and worked without any problems.
