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: Support export filters in on-the-fly exports via LrExportSession

Try as I have, I've not been able to do an export via exportSession:doExportOn[New|Current]Task method and include exportFilter in the export session's export settings. It would be useful to be able to do that. For example, my plugin ExportManager which allow one to start multiple exports at the sam

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 5 SDK: collection:getPhotos() returns tops only - need bottoms too.

Perhaps not technically a bug, it is indeed a problem - some plugins really need to access photos buried under other photos in collapsed collection stacks - as it stands there is NO way to do it, that I am aware of. (there is metadata that can be used for getting underlings in a folder, but there i

Lightroom SDK: Implement getName and type methods for all photo sources

As it stands, most photo sources, e.g. collections, folders, have getName and type methods. However, if source is a special collection, you cant find out what type it is, or it's name, using the standard photo source methods. I'm sure mine aren't the only plugins that've had bugs due to attempting

Lightroom: How to tell if the Lr (standard) previews need to be updated?

Any of you Lr/database wizards got any idea? I have a plugin that auto-sets the black and/or white point (on point curve) - it uses histogram computed from extracted previews. Works fine as long as the previews are up to date, but I don't yet have any way of determining if previews are up to date.
