LR/Mogrify 2 v2.00 released, much happiness expected

We’ve released version 2.00 of our LR/Mogrify 2 plug-in for Lightroom, which should make quite a few of you happier…

The head-line news is that there’s now a compression feature that’ll automatically find the optimum JPEG compression value to produce the best quality image that’s no larger than the requested image size (including metadata).  This is very useful for uploading to web sites that limit the maximum file size.

But that’s not all….

Watermarks can now be scaled to the shortest or longest edge, which means they’ll be the same size on landscape and portrait images.

Annotations also receive this feature, and I’ve finally found a solution to the problems with annotations containing accented characters and such like.  You should now be able to add any text that you care to!

Finally, LR/Mogrify 2 will now elide any unnecessary punctuation that results from missing metadata. For example, if your template is “{city}, {state}, {country}” and state happens to be empty, you’d have “Paris, France” and not “Paris, , France”.

    Fantastic, Thats size priority export is what I was askinf to Adobe for long time. This feature alone it is worth for donation.
    I’m seriously considering some donation but may be very little for now as NZ$ is not so strong.

    BTW, When I export the image and ask to overwrite because same name is already exist, it seems does not overwrite the image. I still see old one.
    If I delete the file before, it is working of course. (VISTA 64, LR 2.4, ImageMagick-6.4.9-1-Q16-windows-dll)

    Great work!

    Hi Tim

    What’s the procedure to update the plug in every time you release a new version ?

    • Hi,

      In most cases the plug-in will detect the update automatically and offer to install it. If it doesn’t work then simply download the latest version from the site, and install over the top of the current one.

      If you have a very old version from before the move to the Photographer’s Toolbox then the automatical update won’t work – you’ll need to download buy hand in this case.

    Thanks I just deleted old folder replaced and from the extension manager and add it again.

    I found that wehn updating LR to newer versions LR try to load the installed extensions from the old LR folder extension folder.

    • Ah yes, if you’ve installed a plug-in the old way, by copying them into the modules folder, then that version will take precedence. Often the best thing to do is to remove all copies of the plugin by doing a system wide search, then starting again.

    Congratulations Tim! I find Mogrify to be indispensable. Keep up the great work!

  10. hey, love your work…thanks!

    i’m getting a consistent crash running LR2/Mog on Mac PBPro everything latest software when i try and change any of the colors in the plug in – the text or the borders – LR crashes

    any help?



    • Actually the problem lies elsewhere, and it’s due to a comptibility problem between Lightroom and the ColorMunki software.

      Try removing the file “ColormunkiPicker.colorPicker” from the ColorPickers folder in the Library folder and restart the computer.

    Hi Tim,

    I very much appreciate your work and have donated.

  13. Geoff Bolte says:

    Tim, I have been having an issue with the new compression feature and Lightroom says it exports it, but it is not in the location I specify nor can a search bring up the folder? Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

  14. Vivien says:

    Great work! Love your plug-in!

    I always choose JPEG quality of 100 on export, but I’m wondering if the compress feature that was added to the plug-in apply to all photos that I’m exporting or just those that exceed the specified size? Ideally, I would like the compression to apply only for those that exceed the specified file size and the rest to export at quality 100.

    Thanks again!

    If I would like to make a donation to get a serial number for unrestricted versions of your plugins – where do I go to do that?

    I found what I needed Via The Photographers Tool Box.
