Feature Request : Export (3rd Option)

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
When I re-export from a catalogue I am working on, sometimes I am exporting images I have exported before.
So . . . Lightroom asks me: Do you want to
a. Overwrite exixting files or
B. Create unique filenames.
. . . which, BTW -in my humble opinion, is flawed anyway since the unique filenames do not appear in the file listing anywhere near their companion.
Example: Img008 does not get a uniquely named copy like Img008-b, but instead gets something like copy-Img008 - which does not allow for quick side-by-side comparisons in an image browser.
(SO: Unique filename option should be fixed!)
But there should also be a third option: (the real reason I write)
C. Ignore duplicates (Do not overwrite or create new file when there is already an existing file.) This will save my computer lots of processing time trying to re-export over existing files.
Now for arguments sake, you could tell me just to not select the pre-existing exported files when I export, but in my particular case, that would involved nearly as much brain power as not doing it consumes computer time, since I have already exported selected non-sequential files for my first export, and I'll be damned if I can remember which ones they were until the export "expert" tells me which files are about to be duplicated.

It keeps the password. Whatever issues you are having are the exception, not the rule. However, without any system info, nobody can really help. Start by reviewing these steps:
Sign in or activation errors
And since you are in a corporate environment, definitely talk to IT and have them release the necessary network ports and grant sufficient user privileges to make this stuff stick...
