Version 4.36, 12th August 2019

  • Added the ability to import GPS, altitude and direction coordinates.
  • Added an option to overwrite fields with imported data ONLY if the imported field data isn't empty (otherwise existing data is removed).
  • Fixed a long standing bug whereby some images wouldn't be updated during an import operation.

Version 4.33, 7th July 2015

Version 4.30, 25th April 2014

  • LR/Transporter can now import keywords into LR's own keyword hierarchy.

Version 4.28, 29th October 2012

  • Work around for a bug introduced in Lightroom 4.2 (resulting in the error "attempt get get field 'getProgressScope'").

Version 4.27, 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 {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.

Version 4.26, 21th March 2012

  • Improved error reporting when reading CSV files with unmatched quotes.

Version 4.25, 26th September 2011

  • Fixed 'unknown global pt' error during metadata import.

Version 4.24, 20th September 2011

  • 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!
  • 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.

Important note: This version of LR/Transporter will no longer work on Lightroom 1.x.

  • Updated to use the new self update mechanism which can now tell you exactly what's changed since your last update.
  • Removed support for Lightroom 1.x.

  • Added a new 'append' import option that ignors the given prefix if the field being written to is empty.
