Lightroom Export to Sta.sh
This plugin is released without warranty or any promise of tech support because I’m still working on it, and you’re paying nothing for it.
If it breaks, you get to keep both pieces.
Now that I’ve pointed out that I’M NOT DOING TECH SUPPORT for this plugin (I reserve the right to utterly ignore the expected comments on this post despite what I’m saying), download it here: NO TECH SUPPORT PROVIDED
About the plugin
It’s a simple export to Sta.sh plugin.
How does it work? Simple. First of all, in the Export panel, select “Export To: Sta.sh”. That means, click on the dropdown menu at the top of the export panel, and select “Sta.sh” from the list.
Then, login. The first time you use the plugin, you’ll have to authorize the plugin. This sounds harder than it is:
- Click the “Log In” button.
- Click the “Authorize at Sta.sh” button that pops up.
- Click the shiny blue “Authorize” button in the web browser window that pops up.
- Wait for dA to work for a bit.
- Copy the numbers on the “Your code is:” page.
- You sure you copied the numbers, and only the numbers?
- Paste the numbers into the convenient text box that Lightroom is now showing.
- Click “OK”
- Wait for Lightroom to go get your username.
Eventually, you should get something like this:
Good news: It works just like your normal export processes in Lightroom.
Bad news: Once you’ve exported your images, you have to go to Sta.sh, and manually submit them. But you’ll have your images uploaded, and the keywords, title and description fields filled with data you put in Lightroom. Saves time right there!
And, No, this plugin cannot automagically submit images to your dA gallery, dA doesn’t allow that. Complain to them, not to me.
