Features

Photo Upload is a single plug-in for Adobe Lightroom that allows you to upload photos and videos to your favourite online photo services.

With the exception of Tree Mirror, the plug-in is restricted with the free version to only uploading photos in a small size.  To remove this restriction, simply purchase a license key for each upload service that you wish to use.

  • Free version – allows you to upload photos to each online photo service but with a limited resolution
  • Licensed version – enables full resolution uploads and additional features that make using Lightroom to upload your photos even easier
