ProSelect To Lightroom Collection

Version 1.01 (Updated 05-05-09)

It always takes me a while to get the selections that we made in our sales session back into Lightroom. So, I just wrote a utility that will allow anyone to take their selections from ProSelect and load them back into Lightroom as a collection. I call it simply ProSelect to Lightroom.

It works by using the “Filename List” export from ProSelect and converts it into a Lightroom Smart Collection settings file which you can then import into your Lightroom catalog that contained the images to begin with.

Here are the full instructions and download below.

ProSelect

  • Open your ProSelect Album with the selections that your client made.
  • Choose File > Export > Filename List and save it where you want it.

  • Choose what selections from ProSelect you want to include in the collection.
  • Now save the collection settings file by clicking the Save Button.
