Streamline Image Uploads to your Blog with Lightroom
Uploading images to your blog can be a time suck. First you have to connect your camera to your computer so you can upload the images. Then you have to edit them in a photo editing tool, resize them and get them ready for the web. And just when you think you’re done you still have to login to your social network and upload the images.
It can be a tedious and TIME CONSUMING process.
Luckily there is a simple way to streamline the process if you use Adobe Lightroom as you photo editing tool. I manage this blog, my photography blog and a tumblr blog and taking the time to resize and upload images for all three (to accommodate the designs) takes forever! One of them is bound to get neglected and sometimes all of them.
The tumblr is the most neglected and since it’s mostly a photography blog I started to look for an easy solution to upload images to the site. Sure you can publish posts from your WordPress blog to your tumblr blog. But wouldn’t it be cool to just be able to upload directly from Photoshop or Lightroom.
I came across an Adobe Lightroom plugin that will do exactly that. It is really easy to download and install and I had it working in minutes.
I know what you are thinking, “Do they have the same tool for WordPress?” I found this tutorial to help you upload images to your WordPress blog using lightroom.
