Synchronize your photos, metadata and collections between Lightroom and WordPress.

== Description ==

Synchronize your photos, metadata and collections between Lightroom and WordPress. You can link meta field from Lightroom to those in WordPress and keep also that in sync. Any changes in your Lightroom will be replicated in your WordPress.

If you are using specific gallery plugins or themes, WP/LR Sync can bring all the power of Lightroom to them, magically, seamlessly. You will be free to choose the theme or gallery plugin you like the best, switch between them, etc.

Do you have many photos in your WordPress already and they are not linked with your Lightroom? No problem, WP/LR Sync can do that too. Using EXIF and image perceptual analysis, the plugin will help you linking them or to do it manually.
