Lightroom - allow multi-select when creating Snapshot

When I make a load of changes to a batch of files for a particular job I like to make snapshots of the "Released Version" of each file so that I can go back to it later if I wish.

However, currently this means going into Develop for each file in turn, hitting "Create Snapshot" and then typing (or pasting) in the snapshot name. This is OK for a couple of files, but when you have 10, 20, 30 or more it's a major pain in the backside!

My suggestion therefore is to add "Create Snapshot" to a menu in the Library module and allowing users to create snapshots (with the same name) for ALL selected files in one operation. This would save a lot of time when working on batches.

Try the Snapshotter plug-in - works great for this
