I have recently made some updates to the Photo-drop Lr plug-in for Adobe Lightroom. One of which was to make it simple to post and share images with people by sending a message to twitter.
I also wanted to make this functionality available for free – it is included unrestricted in the ‘trial’ version, so you can post photos up to 800 pixels in size to twitter, straight from Lightroom.
Even better, you can upload a collection of images and send a tweet with short URL pointing at the photos, all in one go using the Photo-drop Lr plug-in.
Because Photo-drop Lr uploads to drop.io people can comment on your photos and chat with other viewers in real-time.
So, now as well as using the plug-in to create private sharing locations for your photos directly from Adobe Lightroom, you can also share them publically with your followers using the new tweeting feature.
