WP/LR Sync (Lightroom Sync)

Описание

Synchronize your photos, collections, keywords and metadata between Lightroom and WordPress. You can link meta fields from Lightroom to those in WordPress (Title, Description, Alt) and also keep it in sync. Any changes in your Lightroom will be replicated in your WordPress. Basically this is not a problem anymore when you change your watermark, the quality of your photos, the post-processing or information, it’s all one-click away. Learn more about it here: WP/LR Sync Tutorial.

SUPPORT FOR THEMES AND GALLERY PLUGINS

If you are using specific gallery plugins or photography themes, WP/LR Sync can bring all the power of Lightroom to them, magically, seamlessly. You will be free to choose the theme or gallery plugin you like the best and even switch between them. WP/LR Sync has a built-in extensions system so that you can extend it easily and support specific themes and plugins. A powerful extension called «Post Types» is already included and probably does everything you need. More information about it here: Post Types Extension.

GALLERIES BASED ON YOUR LIGHTROOM KEYWORDS AND COLLECTIONS

You can use attributes (collections=’…’, keywords=’…’) in the standard WP Gallery shortcode to link your galleries to your collections and keywords in Lightoom dynamically. No need to own a specific plugin or anything, it works naturally with WordPress. The Meow Gallery and the Meow Lightbox are recommended to enhance your galleries with better layouts and options. They can directly get your Lightroom collections.

ABOUT PREVIOUSLY UPLOADED IMAGES

Do you have many photos in your WordPress already and they are not linked with your Lightroom? No problem, WP/LR Sync can do that too. Using EXIF and image perceptual analysis, the plugin will help you linking them through a process call Total Synchronization or you can do it manually. The process is explained here: Total Synchronization.

SWAPPING PHOTOS

You are using a certain photo everywhere but you now have a better one? From Lightroom, you can swap one photo to another and this will be replicated automatically on your WordPress. You have nothing else to do. The module is called «Switch Photos» in Lightroom.

API & APPS

There is an external API available through WP/LR Sync that iPhone, Android developers or anybody else can use to make apps. There is one available for iPhone, you can search for it on the iTunes Store (it is not free, and not made by Meow Apps).

UNIQUE AND POWERFUL PLUGIN

I am myself an user of this plugin and even though it is the only one, I want to make it better every day. If you have issues, frustrations, or anything to say, contact me. I will work hard to make it even more awesome.

I love WP/LR Sync. It's an excellent time saving tool that makes working and managing images with Lightroom and WordPress easy, simple, super-efficient and fun. I can adjust the image or multiple images in Lightroom and they are ready for updating/publishing from Lightroom to my WordPress site - replacing or updating the existing images - whether it is an image tweak or caption change, the images get updated without any hassle. If you are working with several images or large image libraries (like a photography website) and want to organize your images with Lightroom and then easily upload/publish and make changes to images on a WordPress site then I highly recommend WP/LR Sync. I had a question about WP/LR Sync and the response from the plugin developer, Jordy, was very quick and he had a good answer for my question.

This kind of functionality is a godsend - truly. I mean, I can't quite comprehend how to live without it. For professional photographers who are constantly updating their portfolios, tweaking existing images, adding meta data for SEO, and dealing with massive image libraries, a tool like this can save time and OCD-media-library-organizing-madness. Download it and set it up today!

I have used the WP/LR sync plugin since I started using WP in 2015. I could not manage the number of photos and sites I have without it. The File Explorer in the media bin is invaluable for filtering your images on your website. A couple of less known uses: 1. The plugin will upload videos to your website as well, so add the videos to a collection in Lightroom, and be sure to adjust your Publish settings as the video files can be large. 2. You can also upload .png files from Lightroom with wp/lr sync as long as you temporarily change the file type to original in the Publish settings in Lightroom. So add them to a collection, like "website branding", switch the Publish Settings to original file, publish your pngs, then switch the file type back. So you should be able to keep all of your imagery organized between LR and WordPress. One recommendation for users: When naming your galleries/collections in Lightroom, include the gallery ID. You need this gallery ID for the gallery shortcode, and including it in the name makes it easy to find when you are in the media tab, and you will not always need to go back to the wp/lp sync>galleries tab to find it. Support is great and personal.

Works really well making uploading pictures to WP much easier. Haven't really got my head around the uploading the folder structure that would be great, rather than having all my wp pictures in one group.

Well worth the effort to install. Especially if you currently use Lightroom for managing photos locally on your computer before posting to the web. The installation takes concentrated effort but now that it's working it seems solid. The new integration is much better than the previous one. Thank you for creating the plugin and continuing to improve it. I'm expecting it to become indispensable.

Having some problems with the update process in version 5, I openened a support ticket. This was on a Saturday morning so I didn't really expect any help before Monday. However, within less than an hour Jordy answered with precise instructions to make it work. Great support for a gread product I wouldn't want to miss!
