Q

How do I get PortraitPro Studio to work as a plug-in to Lightroom (Mac)?


A To set up PortraitPro as an external editor for Lightroom, please follow these steps:
  • Open Lightroom and in the menu go to Lightroom->Preferences...

  • In the "Additional External Editor" section, press the "Choose" button on the right for choosing the application. A new dialog will pop up asking for the location of the program to run.

    PortraitPro Studio 17 is usually located at "/Applications/PortraitProStudio".

    PortraitPro Studio Trial 17 is usually located at "/Applications/PortraitProStudioTrial".

    PortraitPro Studio Max 17 is usually located at "/Applications/PortraitProStudioMax".

    Try pasting in these paths if you are not sure. Then press "Choose" to dismiss the dialog.

  • For the "File Format" please select TIFF. The other settings can be chosen as you wish (for example: "Color Space": sRGB, "Bit Depth":8 bits/component, "Resolution":240, "Compression": LZW ).

  • Close the Preferences dialog.

  • Open PortraitPro Studio, choose Preferences, and make sure "Auto-Plugin Mode" is selected.

  • PortraitPro Studio is now set up as an external editor for your images. You can now select a picture in your library, right-click or ctrl-click and choose "Edit In" and then "Edit in PortraitProStudio".
