I have about 30 images that have at least 2 snapshots (1 BW and 1 color for example) I planned to create another 3 snapshots (BW 8x10, BW 5x7, BW 4x6) I would then like to be able to export all the snapshots using their name to JPEG's. Is there a way to do this kind of exporting?

I think you would have to create virtual copies, snapshots can only be displayed one at a time as far as I know.

There is a EXPORT function under one of the menu's. Unfortunately I am not sitting in front of a computer that has Lightroom 4 on it. I am pretty sure you can select the photos and then export them where ever you want. http://help.adobe.com …00-9366-BC7D0178967D.html (external link)

I figured out a work around to get this project out the door. I had snapshots of each image cropped to 8x10, 5x7 and 4x6, so I just made sure each image was on the 4x6 then exported and used custom text to note 4x6 after the image name, then went back into each image and changed the 5x7 snapshot and exported again, changing the custom text to say 5x7.

It was a PITA on this project, but 98% of what I do will not have this many images to export.

For black and white versions or different aspect ratios, I'd create different "virtual copies" as suggested before. You just right click on the thumbnail and select "Create Virtual Copy" (or something like that). It won't create a new file, but will create a virtual copy within the Lightroom catalog with the settings you specify. You can even give it its own metadata, so for all intents and purposes, as long as you're within the Lightroom environment, you can treat it like a second copy of the original photo. From there, you just export each copy. You can of course select all of the copies at once and export them all in one fell swoop. You'll first need to set your export parameters, however.

Like 110yd, I'm not in front of my computer, but basically, you just right click on the thumbnail of the image and one of the options is "Export". There will be a bunch of presets, but since I'm guessing you haven't set up any of your own yet, I'd just go to the top one, which I'm pretty sure is just called "Export". It will bring up a dialog box with a ton of options. In here, you can decide how you want the exported image to be named, what size it should be (though even if it's possible, this probably wouldn't be a good place to change from an 8x12 to 8x10), file type, color space, etc. You can then save this preset so you can use it in the future without having to input all this data again.

Tony also suggesting using Virtual Copy, however I was unable to find a way to rename each copy. I wanted to be able to tell the difference from 8x10 and the 4x6 in the saved file name. I also had several images that had a color and a b&w snapshot so I was unsure how to set up the export so all this info would be added to the file name. I plan to do some more playing but, a morning worth of seaching did not turn up anything :( so I went the long way around just to finish up the project.
