Lightroom Export Confusion

A quick note as a kind of warning.

I opened a photo on Lightroom’s Loupe View and decided it was worth exporting to Flickr.

I set everything up and pressed the GO button (figuratively) in Jeff Friedl’s excellent plugin.

Then I saw it was exporting four pictures – not one. I’d forgotten I had four pictures selected in Library Grid view. That’s what drives the Export process.

That could have been a disaster as a photo is visible in Flickr as soon as it arrives (if it is a Public photo). But I never intended to export the other three.

I think Lightroom should check with the user if she exports in Loupe view to be sure she wants to export the entire selection or just that picture.
