Lightroom Analytics Plug-In

I just came across a Lightroom plug-in that looks pretty clever. It’s called Lightroom Analytics and it has absolutely nothing to do with making your photos better. But it’s free and it’s cool – two things that can’t go wrong in my book ;) It basically looks at the info/metadata in your Lightroom library and creates a CSV file of all the statistics about the photos you shoot. The numbers themselves exist in Lightroom (under View > Show Filter Bar in the Library module), but they’re just numbers there. By getting a CSV file you can then use other programs to look at it and create graphs, charts, etc… of your favorite lenses, apertures, and focal lengths.

What’s it tell me? No surprise here. I love my 18-35mm and 24-70mm lenses (which I mostly use for shooting landscapes) and I love my 70-200mm (which I use for portraits).

It’s available now and a free plug-in for Lightroom. Here’s the link to the website. Have a great weekend!

  1. I was trying to search for information on the camera calibration process. In reading Scott Kelby’s Lightroom 3 book for digital photographers he referred to your web site recommending that one enter “Camera Calibration” in the search field. I could not find a search field area when pulling up your LightroomKillerTips site. I was trying to make Raw Photos Looks More Like JEPG, one of Scott’s articles in referenced (above) book. In the Development module’s Camera Calibration panel’s profile could be found that mimic camera presets. When I select the Profile pop-up menu it reads “Embedded” with no other choices available. I have a Nikon 7000 and feel that I should be able to obtain profiles that can be added to pop-up menu but I not sure how to proceed. I would appreciate any assistance or direction you could provide.

    Thanks,
