Version 1.8.0 is available for download.

Changes in this version:

  • Publish Service - All "extras" functions such as Import Albums, Associate Images, Check Photos, etc. are now available right from the Publish Service Settings panel within Lightroom Publishing Manager.
  • Extras - Associate Photos: The photo matching algorithm has been significantly improved to provide a faster and more accurate matching, particularly when file names contain spaces and other non-alphanumeric characters.
  • Extras - Associate Photos: Added a new method of resolving matching conflicts - now you can prioritize pairing of rendered JPEG copies over raw originals.
  • Extras - Associate Photos: Added new matching method "By File Number Suffix" which compares only numeric image suffixes when searching for pairing candidates.
  • Extras - Associate Photos: Added new matching method "By File Number Suffix and Capture Time" which chooses candidates based on the combination of the numeric image suffix and photo capture time.
  • Extras - Associate Photos: Now when associating photos by capture time you can specify a timezone offset to compensate for the time difference between the server and the local computer, if needed.
  • Create New Album: The Album Name field no longer clears out when navigating to another field.
  • Now the plugin strips out dots from the Directory Name to follow the validation rules in Gallery 3.0.4.
  • In order to further reduce memory usage on the server when dealing with large albums, added options to request albums in chunks of 3, 2, and 1 album at a time.
  • Improved error handling.
  • Other fixes and minor improvements.
