Product Update: PhotoShelter Publish Service for Adobe Lightroom

Product Update: PhotoShelter Publish Service for Adobe Lightroom

Last year, PhotoShelter took a big step forward in developing a publish service for Adobe Lightroom. It was a great start, but we knew it was only the beginning. Today we’re happy to reveal version 5.2, which is jam-packed with new features to help streamline your workflow even more and make uploading and edits as effortless as possible.

For those of you who use Lightroom but tend to upload via one of our other methods, let me explain what makes the Lightroom publish service different. For starters, you can link your images in Lightroom with your images in PhotoShelter such that any change you make in Lightroom will automatically be reflected in your PhotoShelter archive. It’s a major time (and space) saver. You’re also able to make a lot of changes that you would otherwise need to do in your Image Browser, right from lightroom. Check out our last release to see the breakdown.

Now, without further delay, let me introduce you to the brand spankin’ new Adobe Lightroom publish service!

Version 5.2 feature breakdown:

  • Ability to reassociate images on PhotoShelter with the original files in Lightroom even if the files were uploaded outside of the publish service
  • Detection for when an edit in Lightroom requires the file to be re-uploaded to PhotoShelter, or if only the metadata should be updated (a huge time-saver)
  • See if an image already exists on PhotoShelter and find the PhotoShelter image ID
  • Better progress indicators during sync and publish
  • Option to log errors to a file that can be sent to our Client Services team for troubleshooting
  • Numerous bug fixes and stability improvements

To download your copy and see step-by-step installation instructions, visit our Support Center.

INSTALLATION NOTE:

  • You should create a backup of your Lightroom catalog(s) before installing new plugins
  • You can replace the existing plugin file with this version (there is no need to uninstall)

Your feedback and support has been incredibly instrumental in this release. Without your input, many of these changes would not have happened, so we want to extend our thanks and gratitude. Thank you for your active role in making PhotoShelter better every day.

We’d also love your continued feedback, so feel free to send any thoughts directly to our Product Team at feedback@photoshelter.com.

      Works pretty well so far, I do get this intermittent error most times though unfortunately…

      Can’t update this collection.
      An internal error has occurred: ./
      PhotoShelterUploadTask.lua 112: attempt to
      concatenate field ‘status’ (a nil value)

    Une erreur interne s’est produite : ./
    LRLib_DebugLog.lua:179: invalid option ‘%B’ to ‘format’

    Thank for your answer

    Hi,

    I love the idea of this plugin however it seems to be behaving very erratically for me.
    Each time I create a new collection or Gallery I find lots of duplicate galleries and collections nested in the wrong places in my Photoshelter account.

    I’ve tried deleting the empty galleries and collections in Photoshelter and then syncing again in Lightroom but when I go back to Photoshelter the duplicate galleries and collections have been created again.

    Having tons of issues with this plugin and now my old pact plugin won’t allow me to enable it again. It worked seamlessly with photoshelter for years, yet after installing this plugin, it got disabled. Now I can not upload and reupload into the same gallery. Riddled with complications.

    You keep extolling the virtues of all these plugins you release, and virtually none work as advertised. Like a lot of users, I am inundated with error messages and crashing applications. Instead of one simple attempt to update or create a gallery, it’s a series of laborious hits and misses. The old third-party plug in worked fine for years. Get your game together PhotoShelter.

    Hello, I would like also the plug-in to be fixed. Many issues. For example it will not update changed metadata at all even if it looks like doing so. Also problem: /PhotoShelterSync.lua:731 (a nil value)… etc. Please do something.
    Thank you.

    Everything worked perfectly…for most of the first day. Then errors started to appear. Now, when I try to “publish” photos to existing galleries, I get this reoccurring error:

    ./PhotoShelterUploadTask.lua:112: attempt to concatenate field ‘status’ (a nil value)

    Please help. This occurs when I am using publisher.

    Please correct problem and advise what I can do next.

    from the comments above – it looks like there have been ongoing issues with this plug in for nearly 2 years. I am still experiencing the same in May of 2017. Months ago when I contacted you I was told this was a known bug and a solution was coming. Updated information would be helpful so we know that this is an issue that has your attention. Since you continue to promote this (formerly useful) tool, a solution to user issues is vital.
