Almost a year ago I switched to Capture One from Lightroom. Capture One works very well for me, but I missed two plugins that I had in Lightroom and made my workflow more efficient - adding borders during the export process and direct upload to Smugmug. Apparently there are many complains about the lack of these features and eventually I did my processing in Capture One, export the final version as TIFF and then opened it in Lightroom just for exporting to Smugmug with a frame.

Last week my computer died and today I bought a new one. When installing it I though it will be stupid to install Lightroom just for exporting to Smugmug with a border.

So I did another search and found this procedure by Andrew Stannard.

After small modifications, I made it to work for me as well!
This is the command line I use in my batch file:
magick mogrify -bordercolor black -border 0.8x%% %1

My borders are black and the size of the borders is 0.8% of the photo width.
For the conversion to EXE file I used a random convertor I found on the web.

I export the files to a folder that is monitored by Smugmug app for Windows and that's it by exporting the photos I automatically get them on Smugmug with a black borders as I like! No additional step is needed.

Just thought it might be helpful to someone at some point...
