Installation Step by Step

Installing the Imagely Lightroom plugin is like installing any software.

  1. Download the installer from your Imagely account or if you are a Photocrati user, you can download it from your Photocrati account.
    • MacOS file extension: .pkg
    • Windows file extension: .exe
  2. Confirm the Lightroom application is closed.
  3. Double-click the installer and follow the prompts to install the plugin.
  4. Once the installation process is complete, open Lightroom, select Lightroom's Plug-in Manager under the 'File' menu and confirm the Imagely plugin is enabled.
  5. You're finished and now ready to publish your new galleries.

Note: After you've run through the installer, the Lightroom plugin and Imagely MacOS App will be installed in the user’s folder of your computer. If you would like Imagely Lightroom available for all users, each user needs to run the installer when logged in.
