Export an arrangement as a text file?
« on: July 07, 2014, 12:35:55 PM »
Hi, I'm working on a project that needs pictures to be re-arranged but without changing their filenames. The arrangement feature of PM is just great for this. Just wondering is there any way to export this order as a list, so I can give all the pictures to somebody else that doesn't have my PM arrangement.

Hope it is clear.

Many thanks!

 Hi Pablo,

PM saves the arrangement in a .pmarrangement file in the same folder as the images. It's an easy to understand format so I think it would suit your need just fine.

You can also use the Export menu and export any variables into a TXT file so you can either just list the filenames or you can also add captions or other information you might need - say if it would be instructions for an exhibition setup you can add photo infos as well to the ordered list.

You can even get it to export into a HTML file to display the images on a website or anything else you might prefer.
Working on Mac, OSX, iOS and with some Canons.
Allways shooting RAW.
