There are several functions that initiate things that won't be complete by the time the function returns, i.e. they get done asynchronously by Lightroom in the background, some examples: catalog:setActiveSources catalog:setSelectedPhoto catalog:setViewFilter For functions like these, it would be

Lightroom SDK: Ability to display preview of raw images and/or video thumb for files not in catalog.

Some plugins would benefit from the ability to display preview of raw images and/or video thumb for files not in catalog, e.g. via a robustening of the picture component. And please consider specifying supported file types in the api doc.

Lightroom SDK: Event Notification

Problem: It is difficult to keep custom metadata ala plugins up to date. Present workarounds I know of: - Have a background thread constantly poll for changes to dependencies. - User must manually initiate updates. The former solution takes far more prowess (and time/effort) on the part of the p

Lightroom SDK: expose sort order to plugins.

As it stands, there is no good way for a plugin to determine sort order. This makes it hard to take action which maintains sort order in exported files, especially when exporting is via publish service.

Lightroom (4.1) SDK: catalog_photo - orientation is sometimes wrong.

Sometimes catalog_photo component displays the orientation wrong (e.g. portraits displayed in landscape orientation). Usually it's right, but once it gets it wrong (which *seems* (so far) to be inspired by nothing in particular), I have found no way to remedy except rotating the source photo any ol

Lightroom SDK: supply export context info to (export) filter contexts.

As it stands, an export filter can't tell whether it's being invoked as part of a publish service or not. That would be useful in some cases (e.g. to make use of publish-collection-info). etc.. Such information is available in the export-context object, but not the filter-context object.

Lightroom SDK: cancel iterators of export filters along with main export.

Presently, export filter iterators keep getting renditions long after the main export has been canceled. Dang near impossible to cancel an export filter (I mean without having an independent progress-scope). Please provide hook so export filters at least know that main export has been canceled, if n

Lightroom SDK: task termination upon shutdown / reload.

Presently, all async tasks are left running even when reloading a plugin. Thus, its possible to get a buildup of asynchronous tasks if care is not taken to shutdown appropriately. I have solved this problem for myself by dividing sleep into 100ms increments and checking for shutdown flag after eac

Lightroom SDK: catalog:createCollection requires full write access.

API doc says catalog:createCollection( name, parent, canReturnPrior ) requires "one of the write access gates", but the software @3.5 is requiring full write access: Error message: LrCatalog:createCollection: must be called from within a withWriteAccessDo block I believe same is true for create-co

Lightroom SDK: photo:getHistogram (or equivalent)

It would be very useful for certain kinds of develop setting plugins to have access to histogram data, for example, a table with relative number of pixels at each luminosity. Initial motivation for request is to support an auto-toning plugin, but I bet other uses would be thought of too... Should

Lightroom SDK: LrMath.log( value, base )

1st choice would be upgrade to Lua 5.2 which has math.log( value, base ) If not, that function added to to sdk would be useful - thanks. To be clear: it's the ability to specify a base which is needed (Lua 5.1 does have a math.log function, but you can't specify the base).

Lightroom SDK 5: LrBinding.andAllKeys and orAllKeys in conjunction with optional bind-to object param - doesn't work, or needs better doc..

LrBinding.andAllKeys( optObject, keys ) LrBinding.orAllKeys( optObject, keys ) 1. Documentation of 'keys' parameter is different for these - orAllKeys documentation should be amended to be same as andAllKeys, which is closer to correct. 2. Neither one works with the optional object parameter pass

Lightroom: If a plugin is disabled, don't even load it, or at least don't execute its initialization module.

As it stands, even disabled plugins are loaded and initialized, and async tasks may be started and executing. As it stands, "disabled" means "custom metadata, menu items, tagsets, and export filters/services are hidden" - I'd rather "disabled" mean "completely disabled". Bonus idea - if an export i

Lightroom SDK: A way to flush preferences from ram to disk.

As it stands, Lightroom saves preferences to persistent storage upon (normal) exit, which means if it crashes or is restarted then the preferences are not saved. How about a way to flush to disk before exiting. This would not only allow a plugin to assure its preferences are saved, but would also al
