Manually add your plug-in to Lightroom

In some cases, you may need to manually add your software to Lightroom. Blow Up is used as a reference, but the same can be done with Exposure, and Snap Art.

1 - Open Lightroom and then open your preferences.

  • Mac - Lightroom > Preferences
  • PC - Edit > Preferences

2 - Select the External Editing tab. 

3 - Then click Choose, and browse to the application you want to add.

Mac programs can be found in one of two places:

  • Macintosh HD > Applications Exposure and Snap Art
  • Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > Alien Skin Blow Up and some older product versions

Windows programs are all located in the same place.

  • PC - C:\Program Files\Alien Skin\Blow Up 3\Alien Skin Blow 3 x64.exe

4- Select the program you wish to add to Lightroom as an external editor. Expand the Preset drop down box and click Save Current Setting as New Preset.

5 - Name this new preset.
