    I keep getting the error "1 photo was skipped because it doesn't have a title, category or three keywords." I'm just trying to upload one photo, and it has all of these things, plus a description, license type, and mature content = no.

    It seems to be requiring four keywords.

    Leon, I simply can not believe that this was my problem too. Their error message about 3 keywords is wrong, and I went through hell trying to figure out what was wrong. I tried to send ticket to their support. I got no answer even though I have paid subscription from them, so not only I pay for their existence, but the support is NONE. Beside their automatic reply that is... 

    Unreal.... As soon as I added 4 keywords, the picture was accepted...

    What is optimum size for the images to set in the plugin?  I had a pano that is 63,343 x 4,523 pixels and (at least when using the plugin) it choked on it. I then set the plug in for 5000 pxl on the long edge (with "Don't Enlarge") set and it uploaded OK. \

    But, my question is what are good values to leave the plug in set for?

    Please, for to put GPS data with lightroom plug in?

    For example : latitude 45° 38' 08.820'' N

    longitude 8° 01' 45.984'' E

    Many thanks.

    Have been fighting with this for a while now and just found that there is a 500px section added to my photos (so in Library mode, scroll right down to the bottom of all the boxes on the right hand side) and that has a Category field - over and above the Lightroom category field - filling that in did the trick for me.
