Have you tried building an Export Preset with the file size you desire?

It appears you may be using the 'Index Number' as a way to sequence the exported 'proofs'. I do not believe there is a way to easily match the Index Number as this can change. eg. By a change of 'sort', or removing files from the folder.

 

I suggest you export the proofs without a Rename. ie. Export with the same filename as the originals. Then you have a method to search from the Client's list of filenames. ie. you match the Client's Filenames with your original Filenames.

 

From my notes-

SEARCH FROM A LIST OF FILENAMES

To find a large selection of images from a text list you need to follow a set procedure-

Note: It does not work if there are spaces in filenames!

Lightroom-Classic needs access to all images that may be in the list- Click on ‘All Photographs’ in the Library Catalog  panel- left of screen, (or select the folder where all the searched images are known to exist), then-

 

  1. Edit your Client's list in a text editor (MS-Word or Notepad, etc) so that the list of file-names are separated by commas and delete all Paragraph markers. (This is the time-consuming part!)

  1. Select this list by high-lighting only the text characters with the mouse.

  1. COPY the text list to the clip-board. [CTRL-C] or Right-click > Copy

 

  1. In Lightroom-Classic:  Menu > Library > Find,  [CTRL+F]

or Click "Text" on the Library filter bar, and set it to- Filename / Contains.

 

  1. Click in the Search box and paste the list [CTRL+V]  or Right-click > Paste

 

You will see all the listed images by Filename that can be then added to a Standard Collection.

Select all [CTRL+A], Click the Collection Panel [+], Check ‘add selected images’.
