Le Plug-In Adobe Lightroom

Overview

Oloneo PhotoEngine includes a plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®. The plug-in allows you to select images in Lightroom and send them to PhotoEngine for editing. The images can be pre-processed by Lightroom.

 

The plug-in runs with:

  • Lightroom 2.7 and higher
  • Lightroom 3.4 and higher

 

Enabling the plug-in

Before using the plug-in, you have to enable it in Lightroom. The Lightroom plug-in is installed in the Oloneo PhotoEngine folder located in “My Documents”.

 

Enabling the plug-in:

  • Start Lightroom
  • Select Plug-In Manager... in the File menu
  • Click the Add button
  • Navigate to My Documents/Oloneo PhotoEngine/LRPhotoEngine.lrplugin
  • Click OK

 

 

Locating PhotoEngine.exe:

  • Start Lightroom
  • Select Plug-In Manager... in the File menu
  • Click on LR/PhotoEngine in the list located at the left of the Manager dialog
  • Click on the Choose... button located in the Configuration panel
  • Navigate to C:\Program Files\Oloneo PhotoEngine\PhotoEngine.exe
  • Click Select button
  • Click Done

 

The Lightroom plug-in is now ready to use.

 

 

 

Using the plug-in

In order to use the plug-in you have first to add photos to the Lightroom Library. Please refer to the Lightroom manual to learn how to add photos to the Library. When done, select in the Library the photos or the Stack you want to send to PhotoEngine.

 

Starting the plug-in:

  • Select Plug-in Extras in the File menu
  • Select Send Exposures to Oloneo PhotoEngine...
  • The plug-in dialog is shown

 

 

Selecting the Project type and options:

  • Click the Project Type menu, select HDR ToneMap, HDR ReLight or HDR DeNoise
  • Select the project options such as Autoalign and Ghost Removal

 

Read the previous chapters to learn more about HDR ToneMap, HDR ReLight and HDR DeNoise.

 

 

Selecting the files to send

  • Click the Image Files To Send menu
  • Select Original Files or Images with Lightroom Adjustments

 

The Original Files option sends the files to PhotoEngine without any modification. The Images with Lightroom Adjustments option applies Lightroom pre-processing (such as: Raw processing, noise reduction, lens corrections) and then sends the images to PhotoEngine.

 

 

Set the stack option

  • Check or uncheck the Send Entire Stack

 

Lightroom sends to PhotoEngine all the images contained in a selected Stack when this option is checked.

 

 

Sending the images

  • Click the Send Images button
  • PhotoEngine starts and loads the images
