New Query report – Export file names

There may be times when you would like to export all the file names of some photos in Lightroom to an Excel sheet or a text file or one of the other export formats for further processing?

This only takes three simple steps:

  • Put those photos in your Quick Collection and close Lightroom.
    Closing Lightroom before running the report is important, because Lightroom locks the database.
  • Run the report Export file names.
    The result is a list of those file names with in the first columns the full file path with all the directories and the second column the file name only.
    Don’t forget, never run any report without an up-to-date backup!
  • Save the result in a CSV text file, Excel sheet or any of the other export formats and ready.

LightroomStatistics is open, you can export to:

  • PDF
  • Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • OpenOffice
  • HTML
  • XML
  • CSV
