Exporting Files from Lightroom while Retaining the Folder Structure

Adobe Lightroom Classic

When submitting my images to the copyright office, I wanted to quickly export each of my photographs as a JPEG and have those exported files retain their folder structure. I ran across this “Folder Publisher“ plug-in by Jeffrey Friedl and it worked like a charm.

    Having tried the Folder Publisher, it works much the same as the Hard Drive publish service. So, I just created a Hard Drive publish service with subfolders as needed. Regardless if you use Folder Publisher (or Collection Publisher), or the Hard Drive publish service, you still have to create collections in the publish service and drag the desired photographs into the collection (or set up a smart collection in the service). So, may as well just use the Hard Drive publish service, and save yourself from having to manage yet another plugin.
