Lightroom: Run a development preset during export

It would useful to be able to run a development preset during export. This would be helpful whenever the export destination has unique development requirements. For example, I would like to take certain actions (reset exposure, vibrance, tone curve, etc.) when exporting to Phototmatix.

Although I understand your intent for this feature, it seems somewhat limited until Adobe implements "relative" development presets as opposed to absolute.

It would be super-easy to write an export filter (post-process action) to do this - maybe somebody already has (I'm not aware of it).

jdphog's example would not depend on relative presets, but it would be quite easy to add a relative adjustment sheet to the export properties, along with an absolute develop preset drop-down selection, savable as an export preset instead of a develop preset.

Why don't you do that for us Jeff? ;-}

Maybe I'll add this feature to DevAdjust some day...

Exportant (@2.0) supports applying relative develop preset upon export, or metadata preset.
