We’re very excited to announce an officially-supported PhotoShelter Publish Service for Adobe Lightroom. After the release of our first Lightroom plug-in earlier this year, we wanted to update it with features that would give Lightroom users much more control over their PhotoShelter accounts without leaving Lightroom. This update, which replaces our existing export plug-in, is a big step in that direction.
In addition to the normal export features, the new Publish Service tracks any changes you make to your original files in Lightroom and gives you the option of updating the version on PhotoShelter automatically – making it easier than ever to ensure that your PhotoShelter website stays up-to-date.
Watch the video below for a walk-through of some of the main features. To download your copy and see step-by-step installation instructions, visit our Support Center.
What’s new in this version? A wealth of features that let you make updates to your PhotoShelter account directly from Lightroom, including:
- Option to upload to via the Publish Service feature
- Create new published collections and galleries
- Mark published images as searchable
- List or unlist collections and galleries
- Change visibility for collections and galleries
- Rename collections and galleries
- Edit collection or gallery description
- Improved upload speed
- Additional image sizing options
- Added watermarking options
- Automatic update detection when new version is available
- Support for Multi-User accounts
- Bug fixes and improvements to the export features
What if I use the Pact Software Plug-in?
This plug-in is officially supported by PhotoShelter’s Product and Development teams. As such, we’re committed to the release of new features and improvements on an ongoing basis. When you install the PhotoShelter plug-in, the Pact version will be disabled in the Lightroom plug-in manager but not deleted – you can re-enable it at any time. The PhotoShelter version will detect and make updates to any image previously published using the Pact plug-in.
If you have specific questions about the differences between the PhotoShelter and Pact Software versions, please visit our Support Center or email firstname.lastname@example.org
CAUTION: Be sure to back up your Lightroom catalog before installing any new plug-ins.
A Word of Thanks
The entire PhotoShelter team would like to extend its extreme gratitude to Paul Kamphuis for his selfless dedication and support for the Pact Lightroom plug-in he originally built which many of our members use. An official PhotoShelter Publish Service would not have been possible without the foundation of the Pact Publish Service into which he poured years of development, improvements and support. Thank you Paul!
