The only way Windows users could successfully export multiple photos directly to an email attachment from Lightroom was using a (free) third-party app called MAPI Mailer created by Steve Sutherland. Well, I just learned (thanks to Lightroom-News.com) that Steve has upgraded MAPI to a full fledged Export Plugin, which removes the previous limitation on how many photos could be attached at a time.
In the article I referenced a couple of ways I include GPS data during output. One of the ways is in my blog posts that have the GPS tag. I do this using a Lightroom export plugin called LR2/Blog. Using LR2/Blog I can export directly to a wordpress template for my blog.
Another significant yet subtle improvement in Lightroom 2 is the means to reconnect missing and offline folders and photos. While preventing your photos from being inadvertently disconnected from the Lightroom catalog is still just as important as it was in Lightroom 1, it’s good to know there are tools to help you get things back in order if you find yourself looking at a catalog full of question marks.
Creating new folders and moving photos from folder to folder is a fundamental aspect of file management. It is also a fundamental task that should only be performed from within Lightroom in order to maintain the connection between the Lightroom catalog and the imported photos.
