    Excellent plugin….just what I was looking for. I tend to have all my dng files on set of drives (Mirrored) and all my jpg’s on another set of drives (mirrored) with the same directory structure so this will help me a lot. Thank your for your LR community involvement.

    I organise my files by date shot, and use collections to make logical groupings. Eg. i have a job with 3 smart collections in a set to group 5 star, 4 star, and 3 star images. I want to now export these images to disk but replicate the hierarchy on a single top-level export. Are you able to integrate this into the plugin, or is there already a solution?



    • Do you mean export the collection hierarchy as opposed to the folder hierarchy? That’s not currently possilble, the SDK doesn’t provide access to this information.

    First of all, thanks for making this plugin. Saves a lot of work!

    One question, is it possible to make this part of a publish service? At this moment I cannot select LR/TreeExporter when defining a Publish service.

    With kind regards,

    Excellent plugin.
    Just one question.
    Why it is impossible to also export video files to the corresponding folders?

  9. Anton says:

    I bought your plugin and also would like to export a video with photo to directories. Do you plan to make this possible?
