The Narrative Lightroom plugin is designed to simplifying the process of exporting your images for your blog.
The plugin automatically sets your export settings so you don't have to think about them.
It takes care of the naming of the files, setting the best size for your images, it handles the compression of your images and also the meta-data attached to your images, allowing you to keep the ratings and the colour attached to each image.
