LR/Transporter‘s ability to flexibly export metadata from Lightroom opens up all sorts of potential for those willing to invest a little time.
Bernhard Weichel contacted me a while ago to ask me if I’d add a couple of tokens to LR/Transporter so that he could use it to export KML files directly from Lightroom for importation into Google Maps. He blogged about his successful results last October and has now released his preset for general consumption.
(As an aside, note that LR/Transporter plays nicely with Jeffrey Friedl’s excellent Geotagging plugin. Use of the tokens for accessing the GPS data will first try to use the data stored by Jeffrey’s plugin and will fall back on the EXIF data in other cases).
