(version history is below)

Some users on Windows get a FormatMessageW failed error when uploading with this or other plugins. Most users don't get it, but those that do seem to get it often.

If you get it, you may find a solution at Alexander Kiel's blog.

Version History

20080717.48Handle more gracefully "down for maintenance" and "invalid login" respnses from SmugMug.
20080714.47Minor tweaks
20080702.46Some changes that might allow SmugVault users to upload their raw files.... I don't have SmugVault, so can't test it. We'll see.
20080613.45A couple of small bug fixes that might help this run in the 2.0 beta a bit better.
20080606.44

This version has extra debugging to try to help me figure out why some users are having upload problems... problems that I can't replicate. Also, it moves the plugin debug log to the Documents / My Documents folder.

Mac Users: if you get an error when you try to install the plugin, something along the lines of "this plugin is already installed or not compatible with your version of Lightroom", please see the install instructions and manually remove the previously-installed version(s). If that still doesn't let you install the new version by clicking, then manually install it. I have no idea why this is happening, so if someone figures it out, please let me know.

20080603.43Debug/Testing build
20080523.42Grafting in the caption-management stuff that I've been working on for the 2.0 versions of the plugins. See description here.
20080516.41Small fix to handle an upcoming change at SmugMug.
20080411.40Fix for the "_update_status" bug that those few who export non-sRGB JPGs ran into.
20080319.39"FormatMessageW" errors caused by newlines in comments have been fixed. Thanks to David Underhill for identifying the bug and supplying a fix. "FormatMessageW" is a general “something went wrong during the upload” error. Most users who get it are probably affected by Windows networking issues for which Alexander Kiel's suggestion is a more likely candidate, but if you have newlines in your captions, you'll want the fix in today's new plugin build.
20080314.38Minor update to allow the plugin to work with Lightroom 1.4.
20080221.37Fixed “Visit destination gallery after upload” feature, which was broken by a recent SmugMug API change.
Minor UI tweaks for better appearance on a Mac.
Updated Swedish translation.
20080217.36
  • Updated French translation.
  • Now includes a Swedish translation by Niklas Sjöström.
  • Renamed “Extra tags” to “Extra keywords” to reflect the SmugMug vernacular.
  • Fixed a bug related to the choose-gallery-at-time-of-export feature
20080209.35Updated the SmugMug interaction code to match some security upgrades that broke the plugin. New French translation file.

Includes New version (20080206.5) of my Run Any Command piglet, which allows for more translation.

20080202.34

Refactored a bunch of the destination-gallery-related code — could have introduced some bugs.

You can now create a destination gallery when using a preset where the destination is marked “select at export”.

Includes New version (20080130.4) of my Run Any Command piglet.

Fix (perhaps) for an LrHttpDebug bug introduced in .30

20080128.33Tidied up some mistakes in the translation hooks. Interested in doing the translations for my plugins for your favorite language? It's a difficult and thankless job, but you earn good karma for giving to the greater community. If interested, please contact me (jfriedl‍@‍yahoo.com).
20080123.32Fix "internal error" bug introduced in previous build, that affected those upgrading from several versions back.
20080122.31Added "Run Any Command" Piglet.
Some internal refactoring to better support the piglet infrastructure.
20080117.30Have export dialog allow file types that any enabled piglets allow. Bail if the resulting filename has an extension that can't be uploaded.
20080115.29Added the piglet manager for fourth-party add-ons
20080109.28Doh, properly escape usernames and passwords during login authentication.
20080109.27New and tidied French translation
20080107.26Housekeeping changes to allow auto-install on OSX
20080104.25Using a preset with a destination gallery set to "ask at export" no longer limits the selections to those that existed at the time the preset was created. Due to my coding bug, the gallery-refresh I intended never happened; it does now. Thanks to Ben Pharr for reporting the error.
20071227.24Updated French translation
20071222.23Ensure that a long login status message does not crowd out the logout button
20071217.22Update to the caption logic. Properly handle a no-gallery situation. New French translation file.
20071213.21fix bug introduced in .19
20071213.20new French translation file
20071213.19Can now filter the export so that only images previously exported to SmugMug will be processed, or, conversely, only images that have not been previously exported to SmugMug.
20071212.18Minor internationalization prep.
20071210.17More internationalization prep. Added a first draft of a French translation, courtesy of Gilles Theophile. (Contact him with any suggested changes.)
20071205.16Now supports subcategories. Can sort the gallery list by title or recentness. Can now export the original master file. Can now note an image resolution in pixels per inch/cm in the image metadata.
20071204.15More internationalization prep.
20071204.14Fixed keywording.
Added the ability to enter extra keywords in either SmugMug style (space separated), or Lightroom style (comma separated).
Lots of internal work to lay the groundwork for internationalizing the plugin.
20071127.12Send along a per-install random identifier with the version check, so I can count how many of each plugin is being used.
20071127.11Fix typos introduced in previous version
20071126.10

Now handles properly ampersands in SmugMug galleries/groups

Added some HTTP error trapping in an effort to get around the 'FormatMessageW failed' error that some Windows users have been seeing:

When the trapping is enabled, those errors are ignored, which may allow things to mostly work, or may simply lead to silent failure. Features that rely on the result of the upload (the new photoid) will stop working for uploads that experience a trapped error, such as the 'delete previously uploaded versions' feature.

This may not help, but it's worth a try until the underlying issue can be found and resolved.

20071125.7

Added a "Save to Local Disk" section to the dialog:

20071124.5Allow for any non-blank login name
20071123.4Added plugin debugging option, to track HTTP calls
20071123.3Report under the caption-selection area the result of what is chosen.
Added 'extra tags' to the upload-destination section (renamed 'extra keywords' as of 20080217.36).
20071121.2ensure we don't send any empty HTTP headers, as that tickles a bug in LR
20071121.1initial public release

Comments so far....

Having just switched to Mac from PC, I’m looking for Mac replacements for PC-only tools I’ve been using. I’m very glad to [almost] see a LR plugin for Smug and Zen. Your comments note that since you don’t personally use a photo sharing website that your plugins may be technically correct but not necessarily work functionally the way folks expect, or could best use.

Well, staff at both SmugMug and Zenfolio gave me help and feedback while creating these, so I’m sure that the plugins are not totally without real-world usefulness :-) —Jeffrey

If you want to improve functionality of your plugins, you might take a look at the excellent http://www.starexplorer.com/ PC-only program for an example of a powerful yet easy to use interface to Smugmug. If only Nikolai offered a Mac version!

Just installed the SmugMug plugin. Works very well. Thank’s a lot. Adobe just sold a copy of Lightroom because of you. Proper export plugins was the only thing I really missed from Aperture.

You rock!

This looks like a great tool, but I think I have found a bug… I can’t login. My email address (login ID) contains a ‘.’… i.e. ab.cd@ef.gh (not .com). As soon as I type the first ‘.’. the login box greyed out!

Sorry about that… fixed in version 20071124.5. —Jeffrey

Little bug (in 20071123.4): If a Gallery name has an ampersand in it, the ampersand shows up in the XML response as “&”, but then the LR menu tosses the ampersand, leaving just “amp;”.

(No effect on any activity, since you are surely using the AlbumID for subsequent processing, not the name.)

Solution: Replace “&” with “&&” before setting up the table bound to the menu.

Probably something equivalent needs to be done for <, >, and a few others, but only “&” is commonly used in gallery names (mine, anyway).

–Marc Rochkind

— comment by Marc Rochkind on November 24th, 2007 at 7:35am JST (6 years, 5 months ago) comment permalink

OK, my own submission got its “&amp;” replace by just “&”, so it doesn’t make much sense as it comes across. But, I think you get the idea. The idea is to replace “&amp;” with “&&”.

Hope I outfoxed it this time…

–Marc

This is a known bug in Lightroom. I now have (as of version .10) a fix that codes around it. —Jeffrey

— comment by Marc Rochkind on November 24th, 2007 at 7:37am JST (6 years, 5 months ago) comment permalink

Jeffrey–

This worked for me in preparing the table that’s bound to the menu control:

value = string.gsub(value, '&amp;', '&&')

where value is what I got from the XML response.

–Marc

Just a little Lua tip… you can write that as
value = value:gsub('pattern', 'replacement')
which is a bit more concise. Something along these lines is in version .10. —Jeffrey

This plugin has awesome potential…and it was nice to see the FormatMessageW error resolved. However…something weird is happening. I’m trying to export 157 photos to SM. The first export only uploaded 46 photos, the second export 25. Both exports appeared to run through every single one of the 157 photos in Lightroom. Anyone else have this issue?

The FormatMessageW error wasn’t really resolved, but just ignored. It’s likely that it’s actually causing the upload to fail all those times, but because it was ignored, the upload attempts could continue, and some made it through. The version you got was one I let out into the wild by mistake — version .10 now makes these issues a bit more clear, and makes that error trapping an option. Hopefully, Adobe will be able to come up with something to really fix it, but until then, this is the best I could come up with. —Jeffrey

I’m noticing that inherited keywords are not being exported with the uploaded file. If I check the option to save a local copy, all hierarchal keywords are in the resulting jpeg and are retained by a manual upload to SmugMug.

I don’t know if my post from last night got through — I am getting an error message that says that the plug-in is “either already enabled or is not compatible with this version of Lightroom” — is it compatible with LR 1.3?

Love the pluggin!

I am a windows user and was getting the FormatW error EVERY time. I changed the settings in the Metadata & Upload management section so that ALL of the sources were set to (unused). I haven’t gotten the error since. I hope this helps…

Alex, I tried your suggestion and I still get the FormatMessageW error with all of the sources set to (unused). Something else is still going on.

— comment by David on December 12th, 2007 at 9:41pm JST (6 years, 4 months ago) comment permalink

David,

Bummer! I tried to change around some of the other settings to see if could get an error. It is working flawlessly for me now.

Good luck,

I am one of those who gets the FormatMessageW every time. Does the filter in v19 know about the error and which file were uploaded and which failed? If I do an upload and half of them fail, can I run it again with the filter on and it will only try to upload the ones that failed?

The filter works with respect to the images it knows were or were not uploaded, which, due to the FormatMessageW error, may be different than the actual set of images that were/weren’t uploaded. It’s possible for an image to be uploaded successfully, but for the plugin to not recognize it, so such an image would pass the “only new” filter and be exported again. Using the filter in this way may provide some relief to the problem, but it’s not guaranteed.

And does the naming convention of the files need to be constant? For example, if I try an upload with “BrianSoccer_sequence#” and some fail or I do a re-edit, then try to upload a portion of the original set the new sequence number will be different. Does it just know which files I have already uploaded or does it compare the file names in my gallery with the new ones I am uploading and if the file names don’t match it assumes I haven’t uploaded the file?

The filenames are not relevant to this issue, so no worries there.

It’s so frustrating hearing about these FormatW errors. I hope Adobe is working on it, although I haven’t heard anything one way or the other…. —Jeffrey

Worked for me very well. (First I had to figure out where Lightroom kept the modules files.)
It’s a very smooth and well thought out extension, and will prove extremely useful and time-saving. Many thanks for your great work.

The plugin is great. Thanks for creating.

I was using version 12 with no problems. Just upgraded to version 21 and am getting FormatMessageW error. Tried gong back to version 12, but the error still occurs. Was something introduced between 12 and 21 that might be the cause?

S

I’d like to say “no”, but since no one really knows what causes the problem, I’ll say “I don’t think so.” Many had the problem before that, and if you reverted, there should be no traces of the new one left, so if it’s still happening, I’d guess that it starting when you moved to 21 is just coincidence…. —Jeffrey

Hi Jeffrey,
I was so excited when I saw this, but I cannot get it to work. I opened LR and there was no option for smugmug. Admittedly, I have never installed a plug-in, so I’m sure I did something wrong. When I unzipped the file, I got a message saying,”bad header” Can you help–I know, you are probably sorry you posted this!
Thanks!

Jeff-
Thanks for the rockin’ plug-in. This totally streamlines the process of uploading pictures to my SmugMug site. No need to save to the desktop then upload outside of that and anytime you can cut a step or two out, you save time – more time to take pictures and less time loading them!!

I have corresponded with you before. I am running Leopard (maybe that’s the issue?), but have installed, deleted and re-nstalled you plug-in for SmugMug export, and the SmugMug option just does not appear as an alternative to “Export to Disk”. When I locate the plug-in in the Modules subfolder under LR and double-click on it, I get a message saying that the plugin is “already installed or is not compatible with this version of Lightroom”. But if it’s already installed, that should mean that I would see SmugMug as an alternative to “disk” when I bring up Export, right?

Sorry, I’m acutely aware that you are doing this for free.

This plugin rocks! I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!

One minor, tiny-tiny issue… Choosing the gallery if you have a LOT of galleries from a scrolling list is SLOOOOOW.. Any chance you’d change it to a hierarchical view? or at least allow a drag-bar to go from top to bottom quickly?

Both ideas sound great, but alas, the API doesn’t allow for them yet )-: I did make an attempt to address the situation by adding two sort options; if you can think of anything else, please let me know —Jeffrey

Also, I love Colour-Science’s i2e Image Editor; I don’t think you can feed it files and have it work automatically, but, if possible, the end result would be amazing. One click to enhance, mogrify (using your great piglet functionality), i2e, and upload to smugmug. That would TOTALLY rock!

Thanks again!

I commented last month and wanted to give you an update. I used to have the FormatMessageW error every single time. Then I tried Alexander’s fix. I had to use the 180 timeout, but it now works.

This is a great plugin. Thanks.

— comment by David on January 16th, 2008 at 1:29pm JST (6 years, 3 months ago) comment permalink

I did notice the two sort options; a welcome relief–I just named my “Archives” as Zzzzz! LOL.. BUT, perhaps have two or three dropdowns? Choose the Category first, then, the Album? or.. even add a second sort to it; alphabetical vs. new ascending or descending?

Oh, and I can’t figure out how to get i2e to open a file as part of the command line.. Very disappointing. But, I guess that’s to make you want to buy the REALLY expensive version.. As if $780 (full price) wasn’t quite expensive enough!

And.. if you’d indulge me, any chance of having the image filename added to the keywords automatically? Smugmug doesn’t like to search on filenames in the description… So, maybe some options to add the filename to keywords or description or title or …? Maybe that’ll make it searchable finally.. :)

Again, I just have to say how much I think your product rocks! It’s on my “must have” list–it’s almost beating out Star*Explorer!! :)

First of all, thanks for the plugin! I’ve been writing my own photo site code to run on a server on my home machine because I could have LR export directly to it; after reading about your plugin and trying SmugMug, I’ve dropped that project and am going to use SmugMug.

On one of my galleries, I’ve been getting the dreaded FormatMessageW error, even after running Alex’s registry fix. I noticed that in this particular case, each of the pictures that had a failure had no Title set in LR. Coincidentally, my priorities for image caption are Title, Headline, Caption, Generated Filename.

My ears tend to perk up at interesting coincidences like this, so I added a Title to one of the offending pictures and reran my export with “Export New” as the setting. The picture I’d just added a Title to now uploaded fine, and the other Title-less pictures still didn’t upload.

So it looks like there’s a problem somewhere in the Metadata-to-Caption code that can trigger a FormatMessageW in cases like this.

Other possibly relevant information: I’m exporting/uploading the pics at their original sizes (3872px x 2592px) with 80% JPEG compression. No minimizing EXIF, and LR Keywords are written as a hierarchy. Jeffrey, if you need any more information to help track this down, feel free to email me (I provided my email address with this comment) and I’ll help out any way I can.

Eureka! We’ve corresponded probably more than you would have liked, but I had never been able to find the plug in after installing. I don’t know whether it’s because I installed the latest version just now, or because in LR-File-Export I clicked (for the first time) on Export to Disk, but when I did that I got a dropdown that offered Export to SmugMug as an option. I just thought you might want to know that for me anyway, the SM option doesn’t appear on the top of the Export box as it does in your tutorial. My configuration is Mac Pro & Leopard. Next step is to actually use it — next photo op is in a few days.

Thanks!

This morning something new happened to me, when I load the plug and go to look for the gallery section ….

SmugMug changed the API, which broke things. Version .35, which contains updates that SmugMug sent to me, should fix it. —Jeffrey

I just posted a message to Smugmug to see if anything changed in the maintenance window last night. It looks like it stopped working for all of us since yesterday.

I appreciate that you did that. David at SmugMug sent a patch to me, which now finds itself as version .35. —Jeffrey

I love this plug-in and have been using it for a fews weeks – it has saved me hours of messing around and I now get a consistent result for all my photos in SmugMug.

That was until version .35. Since Sunday if I create a gallery with the plug-in instead of being taken to the gallery once the upload is complete, I am taken to the SmugMug homepage. The gallery is created and the photos uploaded but oddly the option to watermark no longer exists in the menu listing. The plug-in doesn’t upload my keywords (which for me are very important) and it ignores any customisation I may set up within SmugMug e.g. my watermarks.

I use a MacBookPro running Leopard and of course Lightroom 1.3.

Any ideas what I might be doing wrong or is going wrong?

I love this plugin and have been using it for quite a while now and it has made my life easier.

This might seem stupid but would it be possible to allow this to update keywords and captions in smugmug without uploading an image? In lightroom I add a captions and keywords to my images and that is where they come from in smugmug. I would like to update keywords/captions without actually uploading an image to smugmug. I don’t even know if smugmug allows that but I thought I would throw that out there. Just think it would be real nice to maintain captions and keywords in smugmug through Lightroom. ;)

In theory it’s possible to refresh the keywords for images you’ve already uploaded to SmugMug, but you’d have to keep track of which ones you wanted to update yourself (there’s no way for the plugin to know which have changed), so even if I added it, it’d be less than idea. )-: —Jeffrey

Thanks for the great plug-in!

I saw a comment in November about failure to export hierarchical keywords, and I’m running into the same problem. Any plans for a fix? Specifically, whether I check the “Write keywords as LR hierarchy” button or not, none of the “parent” keywords show up in SmugMug.

Trying to upload from Lightroom 1.4 to Smugmug. Got this message:
An internal error has occurred: Win32 API error (unknown error—formatMessageW failed) when calling HttpSend Request from private_AgHttpClient_post_L.

I did several successful uploads yesterday, but I tried to upload 30 files last night and it wouldn’t work. Today I can’t upload any.

Like it alot when it works.

— comment by Randy Doss on March 18th, 2008 at 7:11am JST (6 years, 1 month ago) comment permalink

After tinkering with Jeffrey’s code, I found a small bug which can cause this FormatMessageW error to occur.

The Problem: HTTP is a line-based protocol. However, whatever is being sent as the caption is parsed to encode newline characters (\r or \n) in their HTTP encoding (hex D and A, respectively). Therefore, any caption which has one of these characters will break the semantics of HTTP and cause the query to fail.

David’s original comment then went on with more details, and even a patch to correct the bug. I’ve gone ahead and incorporated a fix into version 20080319.39, so users with newlines in their comments are encouraged to upgrade. See the version history above for more. Thanks David! —Jeffrey

Version 39 seems to work! I was getting the dreadful error message every time. The plug-in did it’s job the the trapping on, but this is definitely better.

Good job, and thank you!

(Reposting here, as I might have posted in the wrong thread…)

I love this plugin! Very useful, but just ran into an issue of disappearing pictures.

I’ve found what seems to be a major bug in the Lightroom SmugMug Export plugin. I can consistently reproduce the problem. Please email me if you know of a resolution to this issue.

Steps to create the problem:
1. Upload Image-1.jpg to Gallery1.
2. Upload the same image with a different name, let’s say Image-2.jpg to Gallery2.
3. Go back to Gallery 1 and notice that Image-1.jpg is now gone.
4. Then go to back to Gallery 2 and verify the new image is still there.

I tried repro’ing the issue using SmugMug’s MacUploader, but it works fine. Please advise.

Thanks,
Jacob

Hi! I’m getting the exact same error as Randy…have been able to upload photos before, but now I can only get, say, 1 of 14 to upload before I receive this error:

An internal error has occurred: Win32 API error (unknown error—formatMessageW failed) when calling HttpSend Request from private_AgHttpClient_post_L.

Has anyone figured out a fix for this yet?

Thanks!

I have tried to install this several times without success. I am using OS X 10.5.2 on a new MBP with Lightroom 1.4 and no luck. I Have Macdaddy uploader installed (also not working) and Flickr export plugin installed (this works).

Anybody have any help ideas?

I agree with all that this plug-in is very slick; thanks! I’ve been using it for months on my old iMac G5. But now I’ve got a problem…

Recently I installed the current version of the plug-in on my Intel MacBook, and it doesn’t work. Same version of Lightroom on both machines, same version of the plug-in, trying to upload the same files to the same SmugMug account… but the G5 works and the MacBook doesn’t.

When I try to upload from the MacBook, the upload seems to start… then stalls. Eventually, after a long time, the plug-in throws a “Wrong format ( ) ” error message.

I tried it with logging on, and the last line in the log file is:

call header | field = “X-Smug-Caption”

Any notions what’s going on, and, ideally, how to stop it? Thanks…

— comment by The Supreme Dalek on April 10th, 2008 at 12:21pm JST (6 years ago) comment permalink

Great plug-in, really like it. I use it for SmugMug and I’d like to suggest that in the “Create” section, Category drop-down, could you bold or star or otherwise indicate which categories are already in use? This would greatly help an unintended category explosion.

Nathan (person having same trouble as myself) — are you by any chance using an Intel Mac? The plug-in works fine on my G5, but not on Intel. I’m asking to try to help Jeffrey by narrowing down the problem as much as possible…

(PS — I still get the same error with the latest 411.40 version of the plug-in)

Hi

Thanks for your SmugMug plugin for the Mac. I’m having a problem exporting 1113 photos to a gallery; it stop saying that the internet connection has dropped. I’ve tried it a number of times with no avail.

I am using 20080319.39 and the is an indication of the latest version 40, but trying to install that results in a notification from LR that “The upgrades have already been applied or are not compatible with this version of Lightroom” (now why can’t they just give 1 reason at a time to trouble-shoot?). This happened with both versions 1.4 and 1.4.1.

Kind regards

This is comperable to the FormatMessageW issue on 1.x, and essentially means that the images that you’re trying to upload are too big to be uploaded before Windows times out your Internet connection.

Hey man, I’m having some issues with LR upload to smugmug. I sent them off to smugmug and because they new not how to help me, they asked that I post my issue here so, here it goes.

I used LR for a month, uploads went smooth, no issues. Had the site modified a bit professionally, and then I tried to upload again and got this message:

smugmug error has occured: [starting “SmugMug.lua”]: 298: attempt concatenate field ‘_session_id’ (a nil value)

Can you help?

Great plugin! Can you consider a feature request to add the ability to select a quick setting for the gallery I’m creating via the plugin? I turn off indexing for most galleries that I create and have that setup as a quick setting since you can’t change the default gallery settings. If I create a gallery from the site, I can choose a quick setting at creation, but not from your export plugin.

Thanks again for the hard work!

Thanks so much for a great tool to use with LR and SmugMug!! It is saving me a lot of time and hard disk space (or time to manage hard disk space) — what a great idea, thanks!

Just an FYI – I get an error every time I upload – seems to be different from ones other people have posted. “Warning: Some HTTP errors were trapped and ignored. Some uploads may have silently failed. Some functionality may have been disabled.” I have also found that occasionally images have been skipped in sequence (so only 2, 4, 6 have been uploaded) to the gallery.

Even with this error message this is a great time-saver, thanks!

Hello,

My plugin for Lightroom was working like a charm ( I was so happy with it I signed up with SM), all of a sudden it has stopped working. I have Lightroom 1.4, Leopard 1.5.3 (latest one), and Plugin version from about 2 weeks ago. I haven’t changed anything since installing the plugin. The upload status bar in Lightroom either hangs in the middle, or at the end. Some photos do get sent others don’t. I’ve tried to do single uploads with some sucess but…… Hope we can get this sorted out. I’ve tried to contact SM, but have not heard back yet (24 hrs ago). Here is the error message.

First, great plugin! I really like the integration and feel of it. Would it be possible, perhaps in a future release, to include options (allow/disallow) for ‘square thumbnails’ and ‘allow originals’ – because by default it allows the originals and creates square thumbs.

Again, Thanks for the work!

Hello,
I downloaded and installed smugmug-20080606.44 earlier today and the plugin isn’t able to log in. I get the following messages and I haven’t seen them discussed here before.

INTERNAL PLUGIN ERROR
SmugMug login aborted
An internal error has occurred: Access to undefined global: file

Any tips?
I’m on LR2.0 beta, XP SP3
Thanks for your help.

I’ll have to look at this in more detail, but as best I can guess now, it’s a problem related to the Lightroom 1.x plugin environment that’s sort of random. If you run into it, you’ll have to restart LR, and it should work okay again for a while. I never get it, but like I said, it’s random. I’m pretty sure it’s fixed in the LR2 beta. —Jeffrey

I had a client with the issue and this procedure seemed to fix it for him:

LOGOUT of Smugmug from inside of LR. Basically, you want the Smugmug export plugin to FORGET who you are.

Go to Smugmug and CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD

Now, try to login again using the LR exporter. In his case, it worked 100%! :)

I get a hard stop where i won’t log in to SmugMug. the plug in log file says something about the wrong version of a runtime or something – can’t seem to recreate this.

Yes Minhtam, I am using LR2 Beta.
Before upgrading the plugin, I was occasionally successful, though sometimes getting the “Result Body is Nil” error which Jeffrey said, in May 20th comment, may be a timeout error because of too-large files. My files were seldom over 5MB, so hope that’s not a permanent limit (could be LR, Smugmug, and/or plugin issue?: many links in the chain.)
Anyway, can’t complain too much about about a Beta, and a free plugin.

Great product used regularly but I now but I now seem to have the dreaded Formatmessage W failed error running the current version (45) on Win XP-SP2 and LR1.4.1.

I have the debug files and it seems that just before it stops (ie after the last successful “post”) it does a smugmug .subcategories.getAll call and just stops.

Would the debug files be of any use?

Love the plugin – using with LR1.4.1 on WinXP-SP2.

Works great, but I’ve noticed that it seems to be uploading the original, not the altered/tinkered-with photos – i.e. any image editing seems to be omitted (eg cropping, colours, contrast). Wierd. I’ve tried exporting the pics to disk first etc, but no joy.

Anybody else get this or am I doing something really stupid?

Try setting the Format from ORIGINAL to JPG. :-) —Jeffrey

…..how embarrassing…

I discovered the answer about an hour after posting the comment – the “something really stupid” label has come back to haunt me!

In my defence (if there is one!) it’s that I thought that “original” refered to the “original format” (i.e. size or compression) rather than “original photo”…

Oops.

Thanks for getting back to me Jeffrey (see above) – and thanks for the plugin: hugely enhances both Lightroom and SmugMug – you really should be getting a cut from the latter!!

Great plugin; I use it all the time, thanks!

I just noticed a possible problem with keyword exports. LR has an option for keywords that specifies that they not be included with export; I use this to tag photos with certain things (e.g., in-progress) that don’t make sense when exported to the world. I think that the SmugMug (and maybe the Flickr too?) exporter includes these private keywords. Can this be fixed? Thanks!

It’s a bug in LR 1.x. It should work properly in the 2.0 beta (I think), and in the real 2.0 whenever it comes out. —Jeffrey

— comment by Emil on July 4th, 2008 at 7:16pm JST (5 years, 10 months ago) comment permalink

I just downloaded the plugin and I’m using it to upload images to smugmug now. I’ve noticed that it’s only using the keywords that are directly applied to the images themselves and not any of the synonyms or containing keywords that I have defined. I’ve got all of the keyword stuff checked and these get set and written when I export to a file.

I’m guessing that there are two likely reasons for this:

1. I’m being dense and not checking the right box.

2. The plugin doesn’t know about synonyms or containing keywords.

I’m quite happy to hear that it is number one and be pointed to what I should be doing.

Thanks for doing the work on this plugin Jeffrey. It Rocks!

It’s #2. Hopefully, the plugin will get more info in 2.0… —Jeffrey

Any sort of ETA for an update that supports the new “upload any file, especially RAW” feature of smugmug? I tried uploading CR2 (Canon RAW format) files with the current release and it complains about not being able to figure out the file’s MIME type and aborts.

…then you released the 20080702 version and my results were (I emailed this to you a few days ago but I guess it slipped past):

The upload goes swimmingly until the last image… at that point, my network activity meter (outbound) goes to 0. After some time, I get a dialog box that says “timed out”. Oh, just got a new one:

“Error response from SmugMug:
wrong format ()

Aborting after 0 of images successfully uploaded”

I varied the number of selected photos and it always hangs on the last one. The network meter shows outbound activity for all the photos up to the last one.

Of the six images I attempted to upload, one of them did partially make it but apparently not intact enough for smugvault’s browser to recognize it as a known file type, or something (the indicators are vague at best).

I don’t know what to say… that failure mode doesn’t ring a bell, and I can’t test it myself. )-: —Jeffrey

Hi!

Got a little feature request for you. Could we have an option to automatically set the subfolder name for local copies of files to match the name of the gallery photos are uploaded to?

That would save a little bit of typing :)

Thanks for a great plug-in, Jeffrey!

The “save local copy” feature will actually go away in the 2.0 version, because it’s built into Lightroom. FWIW, You’ll be able to automatically set the upload destination based upon the file’s Lightroom folder, though. —Jeffrey

Hi Jeffrey
If I can’t upgrade to get it working, how do I un-install the plugin to try to re-install the latest?
Thanks

Hi again, I’ve sorted it!
Thanks for the great plug-in.

Hi Jeffrey

I wanted to activate the “run any command” piglet. I get an error telling me it’s not possible to list the piglets. The error shows the failed command. I tried it in a command window and it worked. The reason for it is probably my user name “Jürg” with an umlaut. Since the command window uses a different char-set from ansi, it doesn’t find the path.
There is a windows api function to convert from ansi to oem. That might help. I’d be very grateful if you could fix this problem.

Otherwise the plugin is great. Thanks a lot for your dedicated work!

Regards Jürg

The {State} token does not work (Vista w/ SP1) for the newest plugin 20080714.47.
Even if I just use {State}, it doesnt work.
Anyone else seeing this?

Uh, I fixed my uploading problem by deleting the plugin in both LR 1.4 & 2.0, then reloading the latest version, (which I thought I had previously loaded…) and zook! Flawless uploads as usual. Can’t find rhyme or reason as to why both my copies of LR were selecting the old plugin versions, but they can’t now ’cause I deleted them. Thanks again for your cool plugin.

After reading through the above I think it’s great what you have done. I’m guessing that in order to use this feature you need to have an active account versus a trial period. Is this a corect assumption?
