Installation

Download

Download “Photo Upload 4.5.6”

Requirements

  • Adobe Lightroom 3.x or later (i.e. Lightroom 3, 4, 5 or 6, including Lightroom CC)
  • Windows or Mac

Overview

There are 2 steps for installing the plug-in. I’ve done my best to describe these with screenshots to help as much as possible.

1. Download and unzip the plug-in
2. Install the plug-in within Lightroom

1. Download and unzip the plug-in

1. Use the download link above to download the LATEST version of the plug-in. These instructions only apply to the latest version!

2. Unzip the contents of the downloaded Zip file to a permanent folder on your computer. For example:

On Windows:

Create the following folder:
\Documents\Lightroom Plug-ins

Open the downloaded Zip file and copy the top level folder named “photoupload.lrplugin” from the Zip file into the folder you have just created.

You should now have a folder that looks like this:

Installation - Plug-in Folder (Win)

You should end up having the following folder hierarchy:
\Documents\Lightroom Plug-ins\photoupload.lrplugin

Note: Don’t rename the photoupload.lrplugin folder as Lightroom requires the folder have an extension of lrplugin.

On Mac:

Extract the downloaded Zip file. You can do this by right-clicking on the zip file, choosing Open With and then Archive Utility. This will extract it the *.lrplugin folder from the Zip file into your Downloads folder.

Installation - Plug-in Download Folder (Mac) zipInstallation - Plug-in Download Folder (Mac)

Copy the extracted folder, “photoupload.lrplugin” (i.e. not the file ending in “.zip“), into your Applications folder.

Installation - Plug-in Folder (Mac)

You should end up having the following folder hierarchy:
/Applications/photoupload.lrplugin

Note: Don’t rename the photoupload.lrplugin folder as Lightroom requires the folder have an extension of lrplugin.

2. Install the plug-in within Lightroom

Installing a plug-in within Lightroom is relatively simple, but there are a few points to look out for. Follow the steps below to perform the installation.

1. From the File menu in Lightroom, select “Plug-in Manager…”.

a. Click the “Add” button (in the bottom left corner).

Installation - Plug-in Manager - Add

b. In the selection window, select the plugin folder, “photoupload.lrplugin“, that you extracted from the Zip file earlier.

Installation - Add Lightroom Plug-in

c. Lightroom may ask you to update your current catalog. (The plug-ins need to update your catalogs so they can store some extra information within them for each photo you upload.) You should allow this to happen by selecting “Update Catalog”.

Installation - Update Catalog

d. When your catalog has been updated you will see the plug-in appear in the Plug-in Manager.

Installation - Plug-in Manager - Photo Upload Plug-in

e. Finally, click “Done” in the bottom right of the window to close the Plug-in Manager.
