Syncomatic available now via Photographer’s Toolbox

Tim Armes’s Lightroom plug-in site, Photographer’s Toolbox now has a blog to announce new plug-ins from Tim, me, and from Matt Dawson. There’s also a Twitter feed for quick announcements.

Dossier de Presse

Dossier de Presse is a Lightroom-WordPres plug-in from Luc Renambot:

Custom metadata and Lightroom

Maybe later this week I’ll wheel out the new LR3-friendly version of my Search, Replace and Transfer plug-in. There’s still a bit of testing to do though because I’ve had to find ways to work around LR3’s database access change . . .

Lightroom Plug-in #5 - Open Directly

I rarely feel the need to edit a raw file in Nikon Capture, and I don't find much advantage from doing so. In my case, it's an admission of defeat as I should be able to do all I want . . .
