How do I install the Lightroom plugin?

Disclaimer: The 500px Lightroom plugin is now unsupported, meaning our CX Team (support) is no longer available for assistance or troubleshooting with old or existing versions. 500px cautions the usage of the 500px Lightroom Plugin as this product is deprecated and will eventually be removed.

First, download the Lightroom Plugin here. Now unzip the download and place the plugin file in your Applications folder on Mac, or Programs folder on Windows. You can now use the Lightroom Plugin Manager to install the new plugin. 

Once it's installed, you can double click the Plugin on the left side of your Lightroom window to set it up. Click Login or Sign up and enter the information requested. After clicking Save, Lightroom will sync your photos from 500px.

    If any body is confused on how to install it on Windows, extract the folder somewhere, go to File -> Plugin Manager -> Add -> Head to the extracted folder -> Done!

    Why can't they just say that then..  So much simpler.

    They don't make it easy do they... Lightroom expects a .lrplugin file and all I can see are .lua files...  Lightroom does not recognise any as plugins.  So I just copied the extracted 500px plugin directory across manually and it was picked up...  Seems to work now.

    I'm no Englishmen but sometimes is their language very difficult to read. So most of the things I let it fly by. Pitty.

    I have been in IT all my life since school and I'll be damned if I didn't have to go out and learn Chinese to figure it out, jeez.
