SEATTLE, August 6, 2008 – Digital Railroad (www.drr.net), the leading provider of online archiving and marketing services for the professional photography industry, today announced the release of its plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 2. The plug-in enables DRR member photographers to quickly export images and metadata directly from Lightroom to their DRR-powered archive.
The plug-in seamlessly integrates with Lightroom’s custom-imaging tools, allowing users to define the file names, file format, color, compression, bit depth, and sharpening of their exported files.
Users can export to new or existing image groups within their DRR archive. While connected via the Internet, the plug-in synchronizes with a user’s list of FTP-enabled groups, making it easy to select an existing group as the export destination. The synchronization mechanism can also be customized to meet a user’s needs. As images are exported, the user can continue working within Lightroom.
The plug-in is available for free at www.digitalrailroad.net/corpsite/special_offers/lightroom_exporter. DRR also continues to offer a plug-in for users of Lightroom 1.x.
