Here I'm going to show you how to install and use the Snapfish plug-in.


We are going to install the plug-in by extracting the SnapfishExport.lrdevplugin folder contained in the zipped package to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Modules. The screenshots below illustrate the installation process.

Note: I am running Windows Vista. If you are running Windows XP or Mac OS the installation path will be different (see the readme file or visit Snapfish Plug-in Home Page for information), however the principle remains the same.

After extracting the files, your installation folder should look like this:


Now that files have been extracted, we are going to launch Lightroom and activate the plug-in.

You can go directly to the Lightroom Plug-In Manager by choosing File | Plug-in Manager... from the main menu or by pressing the arcane key combination Ctrl+Alt+Shift+. Snapfish should appear in the list of installed plug-ins on the left hand side - click it so the Plug-in Manager displays the plug-in details in its main panel on the right hand side:

Click the Activate Plug-in... button, the Plug-in Activation window comes up.

Enter your first name, last name, and the serial number exactly as they appear in the registration e-mail from Then click Activate... Once your information is validated, Lightroom will display a confirmation message:

Now you can click Done to close the Plug-in Manager and start uploading your pictures.
