Creating Lightroom Metadata Views

| Comments

Lightroom plugins for metadata views are called metadata tag sets and only require 2 text files.

create a folder called something.lrdevplugin once you are happy with it it can be renamed something.lrplugin

Create a file called Info.lua and Tagset.lua

Info.lua:

return {
  LrSdkVersion = 5.0,
  LrSdkMinimumVersion = 5.0,
  LrToolkitIdentifier = ’sample.metadata',
  LrPluginName = LOC "$$$/CustomMetadata/PluginName=Example View",
  LrMetadataTagsetFactory = ‘Tagset.lua',
}

Tagset.lua

return {
  title = LOC "$$$/SampleTagset/Title=Example Meta",
  id = ‘Tagset',
  items = {
    {'com.adobe.jobIdentifier', height_in_lines = 1},
    'com.adobe.separator',
    {'com.adobe.title', height_in_lines = 2},
    'com.adobe.separator',
    {'com.adobe.caption', height_in_lines = 6},
  },
}

The full list of options can be seen from page 63 of the lightroom sdk guide.
