Run a GROUP of export presets

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Export images at multiple resolutions in one go

I find myself often needing to run 3-4 export presets from Lightroom for the same image. (e.g. one sized for blog posts to a specific folder, another for low-resolution, another for high resolution, another to Dropbox, etc.). I've been running each preset manually one after another.

It would be so helpful to be able to assign export presets to groups so that running a group would run the whole set of export presets.

You can already run simultaneous exports, just start each one before the previous is finished, or is that not what you want.  Here I've attempted to do 3 exports at once, although the first one is finishing before the other two started but the other two ran simultaneously:

We all know that... Please read what Leroy wrote.

Two clicks -> four different exports AT ONCE. Not eight clicks.

I know that I can do that (except for cases where running multiple operations trips up the export plugin that I use).

But the time savings would come from running a group of presets with a single click rather than having to click each export preset individually.  As we all know, big time savings come from small efficiencies multiplied over... and over... and over... and over...  :-D
