Streamline your Proofing Process
Create a Proofing Project
- Right-click on your Proofing title within your Format site and choose "Create Page..."
- The “Title” and “URL” fields correspond to the title you wish your Proofing Project to have in your site’s menu and the URL you want displayed. The URL should all be in lowercase characters with a hyphen '-' used to indicate a space and to join the words together.
Once a Proofing Project has been created you can click 'Edit' and then you will be able to add the 'Client Name'.
Add Images to your Proofing Project
You can click and drag images from your Folders and Collections directly into the publish queue for your Format Gallery.
Edit Metadata specific for Format
To save Metadata with your image select the Metadata panel and change the dropdown on the left from 'Default' to 'Format'.
Enter your Format Caption and Format Alt Text.
For more information on search engine optimization of your Format site see here.
Publish Your Proofing Project
Once you’re happy with the metadata and export settings, you can choose to Publish your Project.
Republish and Delete as Desired
When making subsequent changes to your content in Lightroom, you may choose to mark either Proofing Projects or individual images within a Gallery page to republish, which will result in them being updated on Format when you click Publish.
If you delete a photo, re-publishing the gallery will remove it from your Format Gallery page.
Synchronize 'Favorited' Images
If your client 'favorites' an image when they are viewing their Proofing Project, you can 'Refresh Comments' to synchronize with Lightroom and the image will appear with a White 'Flag' in the top left corner.
1. Refresh Comments button. 2, 3 & 4. White 'Flag' icon showing image has been 'favorited' with a 'star'. 5. Comments panel showing who favorited images with email address.
You can now complete the preparation of your Proofing Project within your Format site.
