Gallery 2

Lightroom Gallery 2 Client

As a keen photographer I am always looking for ways to improve my work flow so that I can spend more time taking photos and less time in front of the computer processing and uploading to my online gallery.

You may recall the article I wrote a little while ago regarding the benefits of Lightroom EXIF Data and automatically naming images, adding descriptions and keywords. To build on these benefits there is a great third party export plugin now available for Gallery 2.

Lightroom-to-Gallery is extremely easily installed into Lightroom and allows you to export files directly to your Gallery 2 album (I assume that it uses the Gallery Remote protocol).

The installation of the plugin is as simple as copying a folder to the root directory of Lightroom.

Lightroom EXIF Data and Gallery 2

When it comes to streamlining your workflow there are lots of little things that you can do to help your overall process. The EXIF data contained in your image files if used wisely can certainly be a great little time saver.

Gallery 2, like a lot of other image galleries can read your EXIF/IPTC data and put it to good use. This will make the process of uploading multiple images much quicker and easier by automatically applying: Titles, Descriptions and Keywords to your images without the need for any intervention afterwards. This is done from the Library module within Adobe Lightroom.
