Lightroom SDK: setActiveSources does not work if one source is folder and the other source is collection.

catalog:setActiveSources does not work if one source is folder and the other source is collection. One can set active sources this way using the keyboard/mouse, but not using the API. Its a problem, if a plugin is to restore sources to the way the user had them before doing something that required

Lightroom SDK: LrHttp.get and .post are suddenly broken.

They always return a table with an error, error-code "unknown" - "The system cannot find the file...". No matter what the URL is (as long as its not malformed), the response is immediate, and always the same, regardless of the other parameters or whether there is a working internet connection or no

Lightroom SDK: function to refresh thumbnail and/or loupe display

Sometimes its really hard when photo changed via external editor to get Lightroom to update the display of its thumbnail, or loupe view. A simple function like: - photo:refreshView() would be just the ticket. Bonus Idea: - photo:isSelected() Thx, R

Lightroom SDK: snapshot maintenance functions.

Please add functions like: getSnapshot(s) updateSnapshot deleteSnapshot I'd like to be able to do things like auto-assure there is a current snapshot of all virtual copies, so they are saved in xmp. There are a myriad of other possible uses, but the general idea is that plugins can better help

LrDialogs.runOpenPanel has arguments: canChooseFiles (boolean) canChooseDirectories (boolean) Here's how it works for me: both false : file chooser (not unreasonable - included for sake of completeness) canChooseFiles true; canChooseDirectories false : file chooser (check) canChooseFiles false

Lightroom: Allow users to define custom metadata

It has come to my realization that a fair number of feature requests could be satisfied simply by allowing users to define custom metadata *without* having to install a 3rd party plugin. All too often users want to "make notes" about a photo, or associate photos somehow, or record some photo status

Lightroom SDK 6: catalog function to get photo by local identifier

@Lr4 the local identifier is a member of the LrPhoto object, which makes it faster to access than the uuid in raw metadata (and smaller). There is a catalog function to access photo by uuid, but not by local ID. Given local ID is faster to obtain, and smaller, it would be a preferred choice in many

Lightroom SDK 6: allow export/publish service to disable export filters (post-process actions).

As it stands, some export/publish services cheat a little, and export multiple copies via ad-hoc means. Those that resort to such tactics can not (yet) support export filters. Examples: * (my) Photooey Publisher * The Turning Gate Publisher Adobe: It would be really great if you just allowed ad-h

Lightroom SDK: Methods to get collection stacking info.

Ideally, collections would support the same stacks as folders. But if that shan't happen, methods for getting collection stacking info would be appreciated. Of course the ability for a plugin to manipulate stacks (in collections, and in folders) would also be very welcome.

Lightroom SDK: add function to delete plugin preset

Lightroom SDK: Send keystrokes to Lightroom

As it stands, plugins can manipulate Lr by sending keystrokes (e.g. via auto-hotkey in Windows, or apple-scripting on Mac), but it is not 100% reliable (some systems won't allow it, and it depends on maintaining focus...). It would be great for plugins (and easy to implement for Adobe) if SDK had d
