LIGHTROOM: Publish enhancement

I have a half dozen publish service links setup and plan to add more over time. I would like a single click method to publish all of them, instead of having to click on each one and selecting publish. Secondly, I would like to also have it queue the publish service and not try and run all of them together. It actually runs faster when it works on one publish service at a time (I timed it, based on using the activity monitor, top, ps -aux, and a few other tricks, the performance difference seems to be caused by thrashing the GUI updates of multiple services at the same time -- this is a guess on my part based on CPU utilization)

Good ideas. Work-around for the mean time:

Publish Service Assistant (a free plugin I wrote).

Note: most people find total publishing time goes down when multiple simultaneous publishing tasks, up to a point, like 3 to 8, depending on system. (when dozens are going simultaneously, performance tends to decline..). Interesting it's sounding like the opposite is true for you.

Rob,

Depends on what I export. :D
Just publishing the "finished" version of each image without special modifications, my system seems to handle about 8 images at the same time. When you add cropping and resizing, plus a few other things I am playing with for fun, and it seems Lightroom struggles do many separate things at the same time.

I will have to take a look at the plugin.

I could see value in this.
