Lightroom: Disallow improper plugin folder selection when Adding a plugin using the Plugin Manager.

Although the prompt clearly states: "Please select a folder whose name ends with ".lrplugin". Many people make the mistake of selecting the containing folder instead (or think they have to add sibling folders too...). And the error given by Lightroom when this happens is: "An error occurred while

Lightroom SDK: replace _G.dofile with one that works with non-ascii characters

********* WARNING TO ALL PLUGIN AUTHORS: dofile will fail if there are any non-ascii characters in the path, e.g. as is possible with the Swedish version of Windows. I noticed LrFileUtils.readFile was provided in a dot release of SDK 2.2, which solves the problem for reading files, but any lua code

Lightroom SDK: functions to get image data & image info, especially histogram.

In addition to being able to get image data (e.g. preview), I'd like to be able to obtain histogram info. This would facilitate plugins for auto-toning, auto-black-point and other such stuff...

Lightroom SDK: LrDialogs.presentModalDialog - Deprecate ...Verb labels in favor of ...Label labels

Most places: "label" indicates user visible button text, and "verb" indicates corresponding program return value. having "verb" be the name for the labels in LrDialogs.presentModalDialog is very confusing - you should see some of my program comments! I suggest accepting either one in SDK4 but depr

Lightroom SDK bug. Alt key ignored when moving slider.

The Alt (Option) key is used with several different sliders to show an optional display that highlights what is being changed. This key is ignored when moving the slider in the SDK.

Lightroom SDK could use function to send keystrokes to main app

I'm writing a cross-platform plugin to control Lightroom via a MIDI controller. (https://github.com/rsjaffe/MIDI2LR). It would be very nice to be able to send keystrokes to Lightroom directly from the plugin. For example, to hold down the Alt key while moving a slider, or to access various actions

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: shared widths are dialog-box-wide, so one plugin's shared widths may screw up another's layout.

shared widths are dialog-box-wide, so one plugin's shared widths may screw up anothers layout. e.g. if I write width = LrView.share( 'my_width' ) and another plugin sharing the dialog box (e.g. export filter) also has width = LrView.share( 'my_width' ) then both plugins will have width of compo

Lightroom SDK: add parameter to picture widget to set orientation.

Everybody is trying, but sometimes that darned picture is just not oriented properly. Please allow a way to set it. 0,90,180,270 degree orientations would be enough for me for now. Bonus Idea: --------------- Parameter for icc-profile to be applied (at a minimum 'AdobeRGB').

Lightroom SDK: Scroller

What can I say, being limited to a small rectangle is limiting... I'd be happy with vertical only if that would make it easier, although horizontal scrolling would also be nice.

Lightroom SDK: function to eject disk
