Lightroom to WordPress in one easy step

Those nice WordPress people have just told me about a nifty new toy – a Lightroom plugin that will export images directly to a WordPress blog’s media library. It needs a login, which if you’re using Jetpack, you’ll already have.

Download the plugin, copy it to your Lightroom plugins folder (on my Macs that’s in the user Library folder under Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Modules) and you’ll find you now have as an alternative export location. The first time you use the plugin, you’ll need to log in with your credentials, and you’ll then see a list of all the sites you have associated with that login. From there on, it’s much the same as normal – set your size, sharpening and watermark options and click the export button. The plugin connects and drops the images into your media library, ready for inserting into a post.

Here’s one I just exported as a test:

I think it’s art…

Camera: X70
Aperture: ƒ/5.6
Shutter speed: 1/250s
Focal length: 18.5mm
ISO: 200
Taken: 1 January, 2017
Location: 54° 57.7563′ 0″ N 1° 36.1133′ 0″ W

This is slightly more convenient than exporting images to a folder then importing them to WordPress, so I think I’ll be making use of this. Get it here: Lightroom plug-in
