Export Lightroom map

I have a client who needs to see where each photo was taken, and go back at a future time and take more photos. Lightroom map is great for this but I can't share it with him. The only solution I can find is to use Paint Shop Pro, which does this easily? Please consider adding the same function into Lightroom, for now I am going to have to purchase PSP just for the Share My Trip feature.

All you really need is a screen capture tool.  If you're on Windows just hit the Print screen button on the keyboard, paste it into a Word document and send it.  If you'd like more sophistication, there are plenty of free or inexpensive tools that allow you to select the screen area and then to annotate the screen capture and save it as a JPG or other file type.  I use one called HyperSnap and am quite happy with it for just this sort of thing.

I know how to screen capture and this is totally inadequate, a screen capture only shows pins on a map. The PSP export map feature has an interactive Google map, a thumbnail strip and a larger image shows when you hover over a pin on the map, much like what you see in Lightroom. I have downloaded a trial of PSP and the map feature works really well, here is one of my maps. I just wish I could do all this from Lightroom instead of having to purchase another program just for this one feature.

Ahhh.  I didn't realize from initial post that you needed it to be interactive.
