Hi all,

I cannot make Automatic plug-in loading on Lightroom Classic 8.3 on Mac.

Page 37 of Lightroom SDK 8.3 SDK Guide.pdf has following.

Is following information correct?

Any other folder should I use?

In Mac OS (all users)

        /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Modules

But I could not make it work.

I tried following as well.

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/PlugIns

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Plugins

For detail.

Current project is using installer to install to Application package/Contents/Plugins.

It will be break on macOS Catalina.

So I'm trying to change above /Library/... folder.

But it seems not working from SDK doc info.

Thank you

Hi Sahil,

Thank you very much for following up.

The YouTube video is just showing manually adding plugin to Lightroom.

In my case, "Automatic plug-in loading" is very important. It is because to avoid extra steps on end user side.

Currently plugin installer prompt user to restart Lightroom. It is simple enough and accepted.

I tried user's Library folder and verified that  "Automatic plug-in loading" is working.

  • ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Modules

This case is plugin installer and uninstaller required more complicated implementation.

So I'm still looking for All user case.

Is SDK info correct?

Thank you,

Naoki

I believe you can only use the ‘current user’ location for third party plugins nowadays.

Hi JohanElzenga

I think you're right.

I'm working on separate project on Illustrator (AIP plugin). SDK docs are CC 2017 as latest.

Page 8 has location info. And only current user's folder except app installed folder.

In my case, the plugin loads via command line script but is disabled.
I am not sure how to load it via script so that it is automatically enabled.

Any help will be appreciated.

 

Thanks
