The Lightroom Toolbar is an ongoing effort to simplify the vast number of often confusing features provided by Lightroom. It further tailors Adobe's software to a Clinical Environment.
At time of writing it includes the following functions:
New Patient - Prompts you for the details of your patient according to the naming convention you have chosen. It ensures that all staff know the right way to name your patient folders as well as using the correct keywords to describe the procedure.
These description will always be attached the filename

Of course these details can also be stripped to maintain patient privacy, so with a simple preset we install clinicians can choose to export images to 3rd parties with names removed.

Not only does this aid with agencies understanding the image for social media posts, but it ensure Google SEO's are well serviced.
New Session Current Folder - This avoids creating multiple patient folders for the same client. Avoid typos, and capitalisation errors.
Melanin - For our clients who have our Melanin and pigmentation filter this creates a 'virtual copy' consuming no further disk space but providing a discrete representation of the pigmentation in your client's skin. Great for laser clinics!
Vascular - as above, this shows vascularity, redness, capillaries and spider veins.
Natural - This returns any image to the default state - very useful when you've changed an image accidentally and want to return to the original.
Censor Eyes - Allows you to censor eyes and other features with a black overlay which you 'paint' onto the image
Censor Nipples - This is like the Censor Eyes feature but is a skin tone.
Before After - Simplifies the process of selecting a layout showing before and after images as well as details of the treatment and the clinic logo. The image is created and visible within Lightroom for export to social media or e-mail to clients.
E-mail - If you choose to e-mail images to your clients we can integrate Lightroom into your e-mail system to allow you to directly e-mail images in a down-sized state.
Publish All UnPublished - The export of jpegs to your practice management software is a process we call "publishing" most clinics want every image in their pm software and this button automatically finds all images that have not been published manually and automatically publishes them as jpegs for your practice management software.
Create Collection - One of the fantastic features of Lightroom is the ability to synchronise images to your mobile and/or tablets. By clicking the Create Collection button you can have a particular patient's images sent to Lightroom Mobile.
Clinic Logo - avoid any breach of privacy by clicking this button. Patient folders and images are hidden and Lightroom will display the clinic Logo
Search - this will allow you to easily search the entire database for *anything* from patient name, to treatment type, keywords or any other details. The strength of Lightroom is that it is an exceedingly fast database management program. The only of its kind for photos.
