New Lightroom Feature to Compare Photo Edits

I haven't been posting on my blog this year, but I've still been working, and have just released a feature for Lightroom that's interesting enough to warrant a mention here: the Compare Photo Edits feature of my Bag-o-Goodies plugin.

As the name implies, it reports on the differences in how two photos have been edited. This includes not only develop changes, but also editable-metadata changes. It also reports on whether collection membership is the same.

It can be useful in figuring out, for example, the difference in look between two photos, or to figure out why a virtual copy exists.

Sometimes one creates a virtual copy and ends up not doing anything with it, so it's an exact duplicate of its master or of a sibling virtual copy. These can be found catalog-wide via another new feature I just released, Find Superfluous Virtual Copies.

Hi Jeffrey, I have your photomechanical plugin for Lightroom but lightroom just updated itself and your plugin no longer works. I get a message from lightroom when I open it to update the plugin, but the current plugin you have on your page doesn’t work. Are you going to update it as some time? Thanks so much, Victoria Mannina

I’m not sure what “Photomechanical plugin” means, but all my plugins were updated within a few hours of Adobe’s announcement of Lr10. —Jeffrey
