Hello, I would like to know if it's possible to create automatically a table with thumbnails AND titles and descriptions fields columns, from a folder, in LR. If it's not, is it possible using Photoshop or Bridge? I need the text fields to be real text, allowing copy/paste. Thank you.

I just got the plugin. It works pretty well but I am not able to keep the thumbnails after List View export. For some reason, they are not exported in csv format. I am on Mac and use Numbers. Not having the images in the table is too bad. I think it's possible, according to the documents on their website. Is it?
Sorry I cannot be of more detailed help as I am not familiar with "Mac -Numbers" or ListView other than a short test. You mayh need to contact John Beardsworth direct.
Be aware that creating the thumbnails for the export can take some time.
After clicking the 'thumbnail' icon- watch the Export progress bar (top left of LrC screen) as the thumbnails are created.
Then an Excel Export successfully placed image thumbnails in an .xls document- After a short delay!
I don't believe that a CSV file can contain images.
I could also export as a .HTML web page from Excel.
Actually I can get a csv file, by clicking on the 3rd icon on the right. Me too I don't think that a csv file can contain images. When I export the images with the button on the left, List View puts the thumbnails in a separate folder. Then I click on the 2d button that is supposed to generate xls files and I get HTML file instead. I can't have a .xls file at all. With or without images. So it seems that the plugin doesn't work the same way on Mac.
Actually, it works exactly the same way, generating an HTML file (not an XLS) with thumbnails and telling Excel to open it.
What no longer works the same way is Excel on Mac, as the current version of Excel on Mac can fail to open HTML as it used to do and won't import the thumbnails.
I suspect the version of Excel is important. I just tested it on a new Mac with Big Sur 11.4 and Excel version 16.51 and got the thumbnails. So it looks like Microsoft figured their way around Apple changes. What versions are you using?
Hello John, I use Catalina 10.15.7.
Numbers is not able to open html files, at least on this version.
And I don't have Excel.
