Sean McCormack has just released LRB Exhibition a new Web Gallery based on his own website. It is in the form of a Website within a Lightroom Web Gallery. It features:
As Sean says “From the Portfolio family, it allows the user to create home, about, contact and general use pages, along with 6 galleries and 2 external links.”
The main image area in the gallery is based around a single image preview in an enclosed space. Using jQuery, each slide can be navigated to either using the navigation arrows, or numbered links to the relevant slide. LRB Exhibition is far more mature that LRB Portfolio was at version 1.0, in fact it’s almost par with LRB Portfolio 2.51, and probably equal to 2.4. It does however have features not available to LRB Portfolio, such as per page image and text placement and a floating text box.”
A sample is available here. And it is available now for €15
It can be downloaded from The Photographer’s Toolbox site along with Tim’s other Plug-ins.
Matthew Campagna has launched TTG Pages 3.0. TTG Pages 3.0 is a spiritual successor to TTG LR Pages featuring many improvements, as well as integrating features from TTG Auto Index and TTG Stage. It’s more powerful, more flexible and easier to use than any of its predecessors.
The cost is $25. Those previously subscribed to TTG LR Pages have been sent discount codes for the upgrade.
TTG Pages 3.0 is available from The Turning Gate website
Sean McCormack has an interview with Timothy Armes of LR/Mogrify and LR/Enfuse fame over at Lightroom News. Tim’s LR/Mogrify was recently upgraded to include control over borders. Sean’s LRB Portfolio web gallery was recently upgraded to 1.1 and can be found on the Lightroom Blog.
There seem to be some issues with Lightroom 2.2, described by some as a memory leak, but it is more a case of Lightroom overusing memory to help with the performance of Adjustment Brushes et al. You may prefer not to upgrade at the moment or to maybe try 2.2 on your machine on a spare Catalog just to verify if you are having problems. You may find that there are no problems, in which case upgrade away!
Windows users may be interested in the ProShow Plug-in for Lightroom, by Photodex. Users of ProShow Gold or Producer can now quickly and easily set-up slideshows in Lightroom and export directly to ProShow Gold or Producer. From there you can further refine the Slideshow. As ProShow is PC only, the plugin is also only for PC users.
