Note: The capabilities of this plug-in are now available as part of the Photo Upload plug-in. This Tree Mirror Export plug-in will be removed in the future so please consider installing the latest version of Photo Upload and choose the service called “Tree Mirror”. All the current features of this plug-in remain free to use within Photo Upload.
Here’s an easy to use addition for Lightroom that allows you to export your photos into a new folder while retaining the original folder hierarchy.
For example, all my original (RAW) photos are stored in:
Z:\Pictures\Originals e.g. Z:\Pictures\Originals\2010\2010-01-11 Aconcagua
I want a low resolution (e.g. 1920 x 1080 JPEG) mirror of the equivalent folder hierarchy stored in:
Z:\Pictures\Low Resolution e.g. Z:\Pictures\Low Resolution\2010\2010-01-11 Aconcagua
- Export photos into a new folder with a folder hierarchy matching the original photos
- Export photos to a Lightroom Publish Service album hierarchy (album names are auto-generated from the photo folder names)
Please let me know how you get on with this plug-in and leave a comment below.
If you want to see how easy it is to use the plug-in to export your photos and keep part of the folder hierarchy then take a look at this guide Using Tree Mirror Export.
