I've changed my e-commerce site, and I need to change my upload workflow.

For export, I used to use LR/treexporter, and a third party program.

Now I need to be able to (s)ftp the files myself. Of course this then becomes a long winded process, and I'd like to be able to export and ftp at the same time. I've got the ftp export plugin, but that only exports a single folder.

Does anyone know of an export plugin that will ftp a folder/tree structure?

Thanks @LouieSherwin - but the ftp part isn't automatic..
"It's here as a convenient tool rather than an actual part of the configuration; the FTP sync is never automatic... it happens only when you launch it manually from the Publishing Manager."

However, I figured it out (It was blindingly obvious really!)

I use Mountain Duck - mountainduck.io - "Mountain Duck lets you mount server and cloud storage as a local disk in the Finder.app on Mac and the File Explorer on Windows. Open remote files with any application and work like on a local volume" - and that ets me conecto to sftp, Amazons3 etc.

So I just connect to my destination with MD, and then export using the LR/treexporter, as I always have. You could use Jeffery's Folder publisher too in the same way.

Worked for 1400 photos yesterday :)
