This post is a continuation of last weeks post on Exporting and Saving JPEG images for website use. I’m not a software engineer so I can’t explain what really goes on with this application aside from that it makes the process of preparing JPEG images for use on public and personal internet websites a lot easier.
There are three ways to use PictureSync with Lightroom (illustrated below), Export (with the full dialog), Export - with PictureSync Preset, and using the PictureSync application as the alternate external image editor and selecting Edit with - PictureSync.
This image was exported from Lightroom using PictureSync.
The full Export dialog using the PictureSync Preset and manual settings.
The Export with PictureSync Preset menu command.
Using PictureSync as the alternate external Lightroom image editor.
PictureSync can of course be used both for individual and batch processing of JPEG image files intended for internet website use. PictureSync is usually only $15 for use on picture sharing sites such as Flickr but for use with Aperture, Expression Media and Lightroom the “Pro” fee is $30. If you do as much web work as I do it is well worth it though.
