Image List Import Plug-in for Lightroom

Last Updated: Jun 17, 2013 08:11PM PDT

Note: This feature is exclusive to Premium Business account subscribers.

This Lightroom plug-in opens a file list exported from Zenfolio that is generated into a collection in Lightroom. The image lists are exported from Favorites or Pending Orders. For the best results, image names should be completely unique when first uploaded to Zenfolio.

This plugin works in Lightroom 5, Lightroom 4, Lightroom 3, and Lightroom 2.

Importing an Image List into Lightroom

When you have an exported CSV file from Zenfolio, go into Lightroom and select File > Plug-In Extras > Import Image List. Locate My_Favorites.csv and click Open.

If the images are not in your Lightroom library, they will not be found. If there are multiple images with the same name in your Lightroom catalog (even if they're in different folders), you'll see a message about how you want to handle the photos.

Add Duplicates - All images from your library with a matching file names will be added to the collection.

Skip Duplicates - When there are multiple images matching the same filename, they will be completely skipped and will not appear in the collection.
