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.

The plug-in is intended to be always functional in its free version.  In particular the plug-in does not follow the model of having features that time-out after a period of time. Licenses can be purchased for each photo service that you use.

  • Free version – allows you to upload photos to each online photo service
  • Licensed version – enables additional features that make using Lightroom to upload your photos even easier
