Lightroom Spotlight Importer

A Mac Spotlight Importer for Adobe Lightroom Catalogs. Allows users to search for filenames inside catalogs from within the Spotlight window.

Adobe Lightroom

The Adobe Lightroom .lrcat catalog files are sqlite databases. The catalog files do not store the picture files themselves but a reference to them on disk. Executing the following query returns the filenames that are stored in the catalog file:

SELECT originalFilename FROM AgLibraryFile

Spotlight Importer

Apple provides a mechanism for developers to create custom importers for lesser known or custom file types. The documentation from Apple can be found here.

FMDB

LSI uses the FMDB Sqlite wrapper for Objective-C.
