Exporting Collections

Hi - I've created a number of collection sets that contain collections...for example Collection Set A>Collection 1, Collection 2, etc. I'd like to export a collection set with all the collections contained inside, and create a folder structure that mimics the collection set. So I'd have a folder "Collection Set A" with subfolders "Collection 1" "Collection 2" etc. and the corresponding files inside those folders. I'm trying to use Jeffery Friedel's Collection Publisher, but it doesn't seem to be able to publish a whole collection set - just single collections. Anybody know anything on this one? Thanks!

Hi @scott_1 ,

You should be able to do what you want using the using the "Mirror" collection option. It is fiddly as explained in the plug-in Collection Publisher Instructions. Read thru the "Collection Setup" section to see how to do this. There is also a long list of caveats that you will want to read and understand.

I have been Mirroring individual collections for a while as a way to share family images to DropBox.
