Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

Workflow Question!

So, I have the new eye-fi pro x2 card, and I want to download all the photos in small jpeg format (cause the RAW's take foreverrrrrrrrr) to my mac to do a quick edit in Lightroom 3, with the client and have a smaller selection of the few jpegs that I actually need,

so what I want to do then is with this selection quickly download the corresponding CR2 files (just through a card reader), how can I easily select these without going old school writing down numbers on a bit of paper etc....

Thanks in advance!

Your first challenge will be just to import the JPEGs using your eye-fi card ....

But also only importing matching Raws after you have the wanted JPEGs left is not easy, I believe.

I would proceed as follows:

I can't think of an easier way except doing the match outside of LR somehow, deleting/moving the unwanted Raws before importing.
