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.
