Lightroom isn’t just limited to what you do in Lightroom. Once you are finished with your images in Lightroom, Lightroom can hand off your images to another program and direct that application to perform any number tasks. Use photoshop actions, import images into other programs, or even use automator scripts. The sky is the limit… or perhaps the programs you own are the limit. Suffice it to say, this is one of my favorite little features in Lightroom.

    jared, this is a great tip, thank you for sharing!
    one quick question: how do you do the ‘droplet’ piece in other programs (i.e. mail) – i created an action in ps just the way you described, but couldn’t do the ‘attach to mail’ part – any pointers would be appreciated!
