Creative Cloud Publish Service Plugin for Lightroom

It would be great if Adobe made a Publish Services Plugin for Lightroom that would connect to Creative Cloud Storage Folder. It seems a natural fit in order to share files and collaborate.

You are familiar with Behance?

Yes... but I am more interested in sharing files (think DropBox) with my retoucher.

I see, I think - I guess Behance support is limited to publishing plugin, for photos, not catalogs n' smart-previews.. (right?)

Behance (to me) is more about sharing / showing your work and I am looking more for a post-production workflow to transfer images back and forth during that process.

Would you mind clarifying - which files would you be sharing with your retoucher?

I'm thinking: catalog/smart-previews, in which case a publishing plugin won't do.

Or were you thinking Photoshop'd files (tiffs?) jpeg?..

If you don't mind educating me - perhaps I'm not the only one that could benefit from more specific clarification.

Whoa - BIG files.. - how much cloud storage you got there?

So, you're imagining yourself publishing those psd/tiffs to the retoucher, and he/she publishes them back to you, changed, or ... (still unclear exactly how it would work - if you don't mind..).

As a Creative Cloud full member you get 20GB of storage. Plenty of space to upload files and be able to "round-trip" them with others. I am looking to use Creative Cloud as an alternative to DropBox for transferring files to others...

I got the general concept, but I was hoping to hash out more of the details.

For example, if your tiffs are 500MB each, and cloud to contain original and edited versions both, then you could fit a grand total of 20 photos in that space.

If tiffs are "only" 250MB, then 40 etc. (how big are you imagining those psd/tiffs, and will you need to fit both original and edited version simultaneously, even if temporarily?)

Seems a little tight to me - am I missing something?

PS - copy.com also offers 20GB free cloud storage, and there *is* a free export (not publishing) plugin you can use to share files there. I can't tell, yet, whether that is something that would benefit you, or not.

PPS - If my questions are bugging you, we can stop (I don't mean to push) - but I am curious..

It may be one file, it may be 10 or 30.... they could range in size from 25MB to 2GB.. it would just be a temporary transfer. I have copy.com but was trying to integrate an Adobe product that I was already paying for...and thought it would make things a bit easier if there was a plugin. My retoucher also has Creative Cloud so it seemed like a natural path, rather than making her sign up for yet ANOTHER file sharing service.

Got it - you simply want to make the request here (good idea), and not pursue a solution using the copy.com Lightroom plugin etc.. - fair enough: fingers crossed for ya.

I just thought it would be a "natural" for Adobe to make a plugin for their own service is all... I already do "Exports" to DropBox which work fine until you hit up against your personal limit... (which is why I am sure you were offering up compy.com) It was just an idea... btw was about to also suggest a complex file renaming feature when I saw YOUR plugin... just downloaded and looking forward to trying! Thanks!

Thanks hursey.

Indeed, it's a good idea, I was just wondering whether an interim solution should be considered for the mean time, and now I know - thanks again.

Regarding file renaming - I still think you should make that feature request. I'd love to retire as many of my plugins as possible, especially when sorta kludgily done, like FileRenamer ;-}. - make sure you follow instructions..

Cheers,
Rob

I can still simply just do an export to my Creative Clod Folder like DropBox or Copy.com... so it is NOT a huge task....
