New Collection Set Lightroom Plug-in

This plug-in for Lightroom Classic will create a collection set containing a collection and a smart collection from the name given.

Installation

  • Download the release zip file and extract it.
  • Move new-collection-set.lrplugin to the directory where you keep your Lightroom plug-ins.
  • In Lightroom Classic, go to File -> Plug-in Manager...:
    • Click Add at the bottom of the left hand list.
    • Navigate to and select new-collection-set.lrplugin and click Add Plug-in
    • Click Enable in the Status section for the New Collection Set plugin.
    • Close the Plug-in Manager by clicking Done.

Running the plug-in

To run the plug-in, click Library -> Plug-in Extras -> Create Collection Set

This will:

  1. Display a dialog asking for entry of the collection set name
  2. Create a collection set under the selected collection set (or top level otherwise) named as per the entered name from the dialog box.
  3. Create a collection under the new collection set with the same name appended with " Masters".
  4. Create a smart collection under the new collection set with the same name appended with " <!>". The smart collection rules are that the photo must have a rating of at least 1 Star and be in the new "Masters" collection.

The end result is that you will have a collection set with a "masters" collection and a "picks" smart collection inside it.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
