Version 5.10, 30th January 2019

  • Added GPS direction token, which somehow disappeared in the last update!

Version 5.00, 24th January 2019

  • Compatibility with Image Magick 7!

Version 4.53, 16th November 2018

  • Fixed a bug introduced in the previous version.

Version 4.52, 14th November 2018

  • Added a new text token for the GPS direction

Version 4.51, 26th June 2018

  • Work around a new Lightroom bug that broke the choice of color for borders, fonts etc.

Version 4.50, 16th May 2018

  • Added a "pluginField" token for accessing metadata from other plugins in text annotations
  • Updated Exiftool

Version 4.48, 8th November 2012

  • Improved the self update system so that future updates will be distributed via a global "Content Delivery Network" for better reliability and faster downloads.

Version 4.47, 21st May 2012

  • Fixed the {shutterSpeed} token so that it doesn't return values such as 6.00003232.
  • Added an optional argument to the {shutterSpeed token to force a given precision (e.g. {shutterSpeed[2]} will give 6.00 rather than just 6).
  • Fixed the {exportedName}, {exportedFoldersName}, {exportedFoldersPath} and {exportedPathName} tokens so that they return the correct values!
  • Fixed the {rating} token and added a parameter such that {rating[*]} will return, for example, *** (for a 3 star rating).
  • Added a parameter to the {gpsLatitudeDecimal} and {gpsLongitudeDecimal} tokens to force a given precision.
  • Removed the \ that would appear before quotation marks on when exporting images with annotations on the Mac.

Version 4.45, 21st October 2011

  • Hopefully fixed the "Can't copy value between states" error that LR 3.0 users are experiencing. A better solution is to update LR to the latest version!

Version 4.44, 20th September 2011

  • There's no longer any need to use the {return} token, you can just press return instead :) Note that this doesn't work for Window users of Lightroom 2.x - you'll have to use {return} or else upgrade to Lightroom 3.
  • The token help window is now display in a scrolling view, so it should no longer fill up the entire view when using smaller screens.
  • Added new tokens to retrieve the full path name of the original image files (only available on Lightroom 3 or higher). Many of you have been asking for this for years, but we've only just noticed that Lightroom 3 finally gives us access to it!
  • Mac users - when choosing a font the file dialog start up in the /Library/Fonts folder automatically. Not only is this helpful, but it's essential under Lion since the Library folder is hidden by default.
  • Mac users - the plugin now tells you to choose .oft fonts or .ttf fonts so that we can reduce our "Why is the text not showing up when I haven't read the FAQ" support costs ;)

Version 4.41, 16th September 2011

  • Updated to use the new self update mechanism which can now tell you exactly what's changed since your last update.

Version 4.40, 19th May 2011

  • The new build of mogrify for Mac was failing to run on some systems. We've moved back to the old build until the problem is understood.

Version 4.40, 19th May 2011

  • Work around a bug in a recent version of Image Magick that prevented the watermarking feature from working.
  • Upate the built-in Mac version of mogrify to the latest version (kindly built by Mark Sirota).

Version 4.36, 16th February 2011

  • Decimal values can now be used for text annotation insets when using percentages.
  • Entering an invalid value into the sharpening slider will no longer stop the plugin from reopening in the plugin manager.
  • A clearer error message is generated when the plugin can't determine the size of a watermark image.

Version 4.32, 16th September 2010

  • Some users were suffering an issue under which the annotations panel became wider than the export dialog, thereby hiding some of the features.

Version 4.30, 26th May 2010

  • Renamed to LR/Mogrify 2 (instead of LR2/Mogrify) to avoid the suggestion that the plugin is not compatible with LR3.

Version 4.28, 25th February 2010

  • Fix a problem with translucent inner borders (a darker line would show up at the bottom of the image).

Version 4.27, 22nd February 2010

  • Added 'difference' blending mode to watermark options.

Version 4.26, 15th February 2010

  • Inner borders had incorrect widths.
  • Improve generation of font list (under Windows) to reduce the number of incompatible fonts listed.

Version 4.21, 9th November 2009

  • Fixed a bug when trying to use PNGs for watermarks.

Version 4.20, 2nd November 2009

  • Fix most compatibility issues with Lightroom 3 beta. The plugin still can't be used from the "Publish" feature due to a Lightroom 3 bug (should be fixed by release though).

Version 4.14, 14th October 2009

  • 4.13 had broken the ability to export a preset via the menu option.

Version 4.13, 12th October 2009

  • LR/Mogrify 2 now detects that a certain Lightroom bug has occurred and stops the user from continuing with their export by requesting that the export dialog needs to be closed then reopened to continue. The bug occurs whenever a post-process section is closed, and is very often seen when changing presets.
  • The previous fix to the "Compress To Size" option resulted in reduced image quality images compared to the previous version. This has now been addressed.

Version 4.12, 7th October 2009

  • Fixed "Compress To Size" failure that was occurring on some systems.

Version 4.11, 1st October 2009

  • PNG watermarks weren't always working on Mac.

Version 4.00, 30th September 2009

  • There's a new "Canvas" section for placing the (resized) image onto a fixed size canvas. Useful when images have to have a fixed size but you don't with to crop them.

  • Added support for inner borders!
  • A checkbox in the outer border sections allows you to manipulate the four borders at the same time.

Version 2.20, 14th July 2009

  • Border widths can now be a percentage of the longest/shortest side.
  • Problems related to the saving of presets containing multiple borders have now been solved (I hope!).

Version 2.11, 4th July 2009

  • The export was being disabled unnecessarily when the watermark height field was empty, even though watermark resizing option was not turned on.

Version 2.00, 2th July 2009

  • New JPEG compression option will compress JPEGs to the highest quality that'll be smaller than the requested file size.
  • Text annotations can now include accented characters and other such things.
  • Unnecessary punctuation resulting from empty tokens in a text annotation is now removed.
  • Text can now be scaled as a percentage of the shortest or longest side of the image so that it'll be the same size on both landscape or portrait images.
  • Watermarks can now be scaled as a percentage of the shortest or longest side of the image so they'll be the same size on both landscape or portrait images.
  • Estoteric errors that resulted from leaving width and height fields blank are now trapped.

Version 1.45, 11th November 2008

  • Allow for decimal border width values when using percentages (e.g. 0.6% of the width).
