Hi, I thing it would be so great if when Export can add a keyword, flag, color o star to the exported files..., such as "Exported: or, green, or flag, etc... what do you think?

Bof ..... When we export one or images, the simplest one is tagged with a color designated before export and here .... if in the library, one click and all the designated images are tagged, thank you do not ask for functions that are not really useful since they already exist, or do not require complicated commands, but a little attention from the operator!

I work for several brands... and i am a travel photographer... just guess it would be really confortable to add that in my export preset... almost everything is presetable (if thats a word) and for me that would be cool...

I colour code all the images I export for me / for clients purple, it has 2 uses, it means the images ARE ready for export and then I do the export.
So whilst it is not an auto tagging method you suggest, it is my way of marking the keepers that I've supplied to clients / exported for me.

I do almost the same... and i just guess it would be great if that could be added in the export preset... just a keyword "exported for..."color or what ever you like to mark your files...

Is a publishing service (to the hard drive) an option? One service for every brand mabye.

It seems to me that it is a good solution to create a disc publishing service for each client, because at the thumbnail level, there is a click symbol indicating as for a collection where the photo is referenced, a Once exported, even if removed from hard disk once given to the customer, the image can still be re-exported with the same settings from the originals .... This is even the only way to keep different rules for the same photo but exported with various settings.

While waiting for Adobe to implement this, you could use the Metadata Wrangler plugin to add keywords and other metadata to exported photos.  The plugin can't add color labels or ratings, though.  For that, you could use the Run Any Command plugin to run the free ExifTool utility to set the appropriate metadata fields.
