Is your upload software still good for Lightroom 3? I was using it from last year, but now I don't have the Photoshelter option on the Export pulldown any more.
Thanks in advance

Hi Jon,

Yes, the plugin still works with LR3. Although I can highly recommend an upgrade to LR4.

I am not sure why the pulldown is missing. Check the LR plugin manager to see if it is still installed and enabled.

I have had to change my email address which I have updated in Photoshelter.
However the LR plugin does not recognise the new email address when publishing.

A window pops up with :
Login attempt failed.
We couldn't find a user account with that email address.

Can you help? I presume the email address in the Plugin requires changing but I do not know how to.

Regards Alan

Hi Alan,

Sorry for my late reply.
If you are using the standard export (File-export) the dialog allows you changing the email address.
If you are using the publish service, choose 'edit settings' on the publish service.

I am new to photoshelter and am just building my new website. Is your plugin compatible with lightroom 5?
Thank you in advance for your help.
