Lightroom 1 Export Plugin Plugins: “Piglets”

This page lists all the Lightroom piglets I know about. Any plugin for Adobe Lightroom that uses my piglet infrastructure should be able to use any (or all) of these piglets.

My plugins (for Zenfolio, SmugMug, Flickr, and Picasa Web) with versions of 20080115.* and later support piglets.

If you are not familiar with Lightroom piglets, please see my Introduction to Piglets.

LR/Mogrify Piglet version of Tim Armes' Lightroom plugin, allowing you to:
  • add watermark overlays (both text and images)
  • add borders around images
  • apply output sharpening of various types
  • convert the image to any color space you happen to have on hand
  • do much more... anything ImageMagick's mogrify command allows

Tim requests a donation for an unrestricted piglet; the free version can export at most 10 images at a time.

Run Any Command Piglet included with my plugins (versions as of Jan 22, 2008) that allows technical-savvy users to run any command on the images as they're exported, before the host plugin does its processing (e.g. before they're uploaded)

Please note: Piglets not provided by me are not written nor supported by me. If you have questions about a specific piglet, please contact the piglet author.

Piglet Developers

If you'd like to develop a piglet, please contact me for instructions. They're similar to plugins, but with a few different hooks. If you'd like your piglet listed here, please let me know. My email address is listed on my about page.

Plugin Developers

If you are a plugin author interested in using my piglet manager in your plugin, please contact me for help, or just look at piglet_manager.lua in any of my plugins, and mimic in your plugin how my plugin references it.

LR/Morgify is a great plugin/piglet. But its limitation to at most 10
images at a time is somewhat annoying.

There’s a 10-image limit only if you’re too cheap to donate the one-cent minimum required for Tim’s unrestricted version. —Jeffrey

If you want only to add watermark during export you may use ImageMagick’s Morgify directly —
just use a free Jeffrey’s ‘Run Any Command’ piglet.

First, download and install ImageMagick
, then feed ‘Run Any Command’ piglet with a command like this:

"c:\path\to\morgify.exe" -draw 'image Overlay 0,0 0,0
"d:\path\to\watermark.png"' -gravity SouthWest "{FILE}"

The above example command draws ‘watermark.png’ over the exported
image in ‘overlay’ blending mode and in its lower left part. For
details on positioning and blending mode check - gravity
and - draw options in ImageMagick’s
Command-line Options

This way you can achieve every transformation provided by ImageMagick
tool. Although it’s not so elastic and easy to use as LR/Morgify
plugin, but there are no limits. This might be a handy way to apply a
common set of transformations.

I would like to export a web gallery w/ a watermark on all photos – is this possible?

thanks Jeffrey!

Tim Armes’ LR/Mogrify is likely exactly what you want. —Jeffrey
