How To Add A Plug-In To Adobe Lightroom

Apart from the fact that Adobe Lightroom provides the quickest way to edit your several photos at once, it also provides the plugin feature to enhance its functions. Take it that way: Sometimes you want to something in Lightroom which you can’t be able to do normally, then the plugins will come handy in providing that exact functionality.

These plugins provide a powerful way to extend the functionality and capabilities of Adobe Lightroom in a number of different areas. For instance, there are plugins that let you share your photos to social media networks like Flicker, Facebook, etc., or the plugins that allow adding more options to the LIbrary Filter, or the plugins for managing and consolidating your keywords, adding new file types for exporting, and analyzing your catalog for camera, lens, and focal length usage.

1) Find The Right Plug-In

Adobe Plug-In Exchange is the first place to find the plug-ins for Adobe Lightroom. It provides both free and paid plugins. Note that some plugins won’t work with your specific version of Lightroom, so that notice of that before downloading the plugin. If you can’t find the right plugin, then find it through Google, that way you’ll be able to find the right plugin.

2) Download The Plug-In

Once you have downloaded the plugin, you can check to see if it’s the right plugin by looking at the file extension; If it has a .lrplugin extension, then it is a Lightroom plugin, otherwise the file may be a virus. A good way to use plugins from Lightroom is to add them to your Dropbox, so that you can access your plugins from any computer!

3) Install The Plug-In

To install the plug-in, go to File -> Plug-in Manager.

PluginManager

This is a dashboard which lists all your installed plugins. Through it, you can enable/disable the plugins, or even install the new ones (which we are going to do). You can see that Lightroom already comes with tons of plugins, which implies that some of its functionality comes from the use of plugins.

To add the plugin, click the Add button to open Finder or Windows Explorer. Navigate to the location of your .lrplugin file, and either double-click or select it and click Add Plug-in.

Once you have added your plugin, you will see your plugin in the list. If this plugin isn’t enabled, then you need to enable it. Also, make sure to read the description of your plugin to know everything about your plugin and what makes it tick.

Conclusion

Similar to past articles, we are hopeful that the presets bundled in this guide will provide you enough choice to pick the best from Lightroom HDR Presets which will most likely help you in deciding the right preset(s) for your photos. Remember: A bundle comes with several presets, so it’s not necessary to buy every preset, just buy the ones you like the most.

Do you have any question regarding the presets which I may have missed in this guide? Or About the plugin installation guide? Tell me in the comments section below! I am very excited to hear your ideas!
