Sync favorites back to Lightroom
I'd like to be able to sync my client's "favorites" back to my Lightroom Library. Ideally, I could open Lightroom, ask it to go retrieve the "favorites" gallery for a specific event, and Lightroom would search and find those file names in the Library and put them in a separate Collection. That way, my clients can select their faves from the proofs, and I can easily get to work on them in Lightroom.
Having purchased Lightroom after uploading thousands of photos to SmugMug, would like to be able to show, in Lightroom, which photos have already been uploaded before I started using Lightroom
I noticed this on another website where a list is generated from the items that your client favorites / buys. That list can be be imported into Lightroom and those images are tagged accordingly.
In order to get a customer's favorites, one has to toggle between their events folder and an open Lightroom catalog. It would be nice to have the option to pull down all the customer's favorites and have those imported as xmp files with a star or color rating.

This feature is already part of the Lightroom plugin. I believe you only have to sync your entire folder structure.

We need this! Please please please work on it!!
As Dan said, this feature would speed up workflow considerably.
Yes, please. I'd like to be able to sychronize a lightroom gallery in the same way you can sychronize a folder in Lightroom 3.
Excellent idea and this is something that will make my workflow a lot smoother!
This would speed up workflow considerably...please implement!

This is so necessary, please let smugmug in lightroom update back the favorites, its so imperative.
Please take this one step further and allow the option to generate a list of original file names from favorites. This way users of other software (Aperture, Breeze Browser, etc.) can use the text list of file names to do their culling. In other words, don't restrict it to just Lightroom. Thanks.
YES YES YES!!!!!!!! and....YES!!!!!
