Lightroom SDK: Zip, un-zip, ...

Some plugins need to zip/un-zip files. a platform-independent built-in solution would be nice. PS - I am open to suggestions for work-arounds for the mean time.

Lightroom SDK: allow objects for export & export filter

Presently one must pass procedural function names for each export/filter hook. For those of us using object-oriented methodology, it would be favorable to be able to return a class or object instead of a list of functions. For example, in an export filter implementation file: Instead of this: re

LIghtroom SDK: Please add ability to udate Lr preview on disk (in preview "cache").

@v4, plugins have the ability to display catalog photos (thank you), via the preview mechanism. However, it may need a moment to re-render before displaying. I would like to have plugins be more responsive when displaying catalog_photo, *and* be able to write a background task with look-ahead previe

Lightroom SDK: publishService:getCollectionByLocalIdentifier

From a collection handling point of view, the catalog and publish services can be treated as collection sets - they both have the same methods for collection management. This is real nice, except: publish services lack the method to get a collection by local ID. Plug this one little hole and colle

Lightroom 5 SDK: photo:createDevelopSnapshot( name, true ) -- creates duplicate snapshot if photo is virtual copy.

I believe this symptom is related to the fact that photo:getDevelopSnapshots() returns an empty array if photo is virtual copy, i.e. Lr is only recording develop snapshots for master, so snapshot created by virtual copy never seems like a duplicate. So, one needs to always have logic like this when

Lightroom SDK: add method "reload" to LrDevelopPreset object, to reload settings from disk.

This would allow plugins to alter presets - without requiring a restart for changes to take effect. Also, features to: * create new user presets. * move/rename existing presets. * delete presets. etc. would be good. ~R.

Lightroom SDK 6: publish-service's create-collection and create-smart-collection methods sometimes drop the ball - this idea is for remedy..

As things stand in Lr5 SDK: Any plugin can create a collection or smart collection within any publish service, which is good, BUT whether those collections will function correctly or not depends on the programming of the target publish service, which is bad. If there was some way to hook the targe

Lightroom SDK 5: FTP logging is broken

From the api doc: ftpConnection.loggingEnabled : (Read/Write) (Boolean) True to enable logging. Retrieve the log and clear it using ftpConnection:getAndClearLog(). i.e. loggingEnabled should be a writable property. However, when attempting to write loggingEnabled property an error is thrown:

Lightroom SDK: LrShell.openPathsViaCommandLine vs. LrTasks.execute - is there an underlying difference?

I always assumed LrShell.openPathsViaCommandLine was just a "front end" to LrTasks.execute, taking care of quotes and OS differences..., but after reading the documentation for LrShell.openPathsViaCommandLine, it sounds quite different from LrTasks.execute. Are they ultimately using the same "techno

Lightroom SDK: LrTasks.execute sometimes never returns.

Most of the time commands like exiftool, ImageMagick's mogrify, sqlite3, ... do what they are supposed to do (when issued via LrTasks.execute), but sometimes they hang (LrTasks.execute never returns). This is driving me crazy. I suspect it's a problem on my system, since others aren't having it (wi

Lightroom SDK: Like deprecation warning, let's have a backward compatibility warning.

Problem: sometimes users are the ones to hit the bugs in older versions of Lightroom (due to using newer SDK features), instead of plugin author. How about supporting another option in config.lua like you do for deprecation warnings, except for "backward compatibility" warning, for example, in conf

Lightroom: @Lr3.6RC tagset definitions are no longer sufficient for automatic plugin init.

Up through v3.5, there were two ways to assure a plugin started up with Lightroom (i.e. asynchrous initialization and/or background processing): 1. Metadata defined. 2. Tagset (even an empty one) defined. I've chosen to depend on #2 to avoid the "catalog must be updated" prompt that accompanies #
