Hi @pata – to add a bit to @Ben_xzj’s response, he’s correct that by default, you can’t publish multiple files as a single publish item, unless they are a traditionally named image sequence. If you drag in a folder that contains an image sequence, it will publish the sequence. But if you drag in a folder whose files have arbitrary names, it will warn you that no image sequences were found and do nothing.
If you wanted to go the customization route, the Publisher is highly customizable, and it’s the
collector hook that contains the logic for determining what items are available for publishing. You could modify it so that it handles a folder of arbitrary
.jpg files as a single item. The method that contains that logic is
collect_folder(), and it’s called here:
Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any other questions.
