Just this week I've started checking out Lightroom. I have long been underwhelmed by the web gallery options in iView & Expressions Media. There is lots of active development of attractive, useful templates for the web module of Lightroom (, for example).

I don't plan to use LR as my DAM app, for all the usual reasons. I really want to easily take advantage of its web galleries. So, I'm looking for either a way to export set information from EM into LR collections, or to use the great web templates available for LR with EM's web gallery feature.

I can think of a clumsy workaround, like making a set in EM, adding a special keyword, exporting the annotations to the files, importing the files to LR, then selecting images with that keyword and placing them in a collection. Yuck.

Any ideas?

Its been awhile since your post, but if you haven't come up with a way to get your sets into LR you might try this workaround.

Open set>select all>Action>transfer to folder>duplicate files>choose folder>select>click OK   Then import the destination folder to LR and save as a collection

This looks clunkier than it is. I've been using this workaround and it has served my purposes well.

Hope this is useful.
