Please add Plugin support for Lightroom CC! Ability to seamlessly use plugins like Topaz Denoise or Aurora HDR are the only thing missing for me in lightroom CC. Exporting, editing in other app, exporting again and importing back to lightroom is a huge pain.

hi guys

I’m considering lightroom cc (non-classic), but I really need native plugin support and/or ”edit it”  apps like Luminar and Aurora, without having to go through photoshop.

Lightroom CC doesn't support plugins of any kind. Lightroom Classic does.

After trying and seemingly completing automated and manual installation procedures there is no sign of a Smugmug plugin.

Does Lightroom CC version support plugins? If no then why is not made clear anywhere?

The installation process went on without errors. I acquired the plugin on Adobe-exchange, then Adobe Creative Cloud synced with its desktop version, and subsequently it notified me that it installed my Smugmug plugin. But there is no sign that the plugin is installed.

While troubleshooting I came across several reports that plugins are not supported.

The only reason I bought Lightroom because it promised to sync with my Smugmug account.

Am I doing something wrongly or I was misled and cheated?

No. And you're doing nothing wrong, just being confused by Adobe's product names. The thing you've downloaded is the cloud-dependent Lightroom program for Mac/PC, like a version of the mobile app but for PC/Mac and without many features. The program that has always been called Lightroom is now called Lightroom Classic, but one can't expect everyone else to redo their web pages and documentation every time Adobe change product names around. So if you want to use the SmugMug plugin, use Lightroom Classic.

Hallo!

Ich arbeite seit einigen Wochen mit Lightroom CC nachdem ich bisher nur mit ACDSee Photo Studio Ultimate meine Fotos nachbearbeitet habe. 
Im Internet finde ich eine Reihe von Blogs über die Einbindung von JPEGMini in Lightroom. Das wäre für mich sehr wichtig, damit ich die Fotos für unsere Website bestmöglich ohne sichtbaren Qualitätsverlust komprimieren kann.
Ligthroom CC bietet scheinbar keine Einbindung von Plugins an. 
Welche Lösung ist für mein Problem zu empfehlen?

Hi there,

 

Importing plug-ins is currently not supported in Lightroom (Cloud based). The JPEGmini plug-in (as per the information published on there website) is compatible with Lightroom Classic.

 

You can install the plug-in on Lightroom Classic and use it on the desktop. You can submit a feature request for adding support for plug-ins to Lightroom (cloud based) at the link below. This forum is monitored by our developers and they can check the feasibility of the feature.

Regards,

Nikunj

Well why the H not? Not a great idea Adobe. Might have to revert back to Aperture.

I stopped using classic awhile pack and switched to Lightroom CC

 

I even find the edit in Photoshop function to be superslow when opening photoshop

 

I use the Luminar plugin in Photoshop and works ok (slow)

 

I think Luminar flex is a better option to utilize Luminar as a plugin. I have not tried this yet

I have Luminar 4 installed on my iMAC and also have Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC.  Luminar 4 as a plug in to Lightroom Classic works fine.......BUT.....I don't see an option to install Luminar 4 with Lightroom CC.   Am I missing something or does CC not yet support Luminar as a Plug in?

Lightroom (desktop, formerly known as Lightroom CC) does indeed not support plugins.

I see numerous Discussions on the topic of missing plugins support for Lightroom (currently supported in Classic only), but nothing in Ideas, which I believe is where feature requests go, and where upvotes happen. For example, I'd love to be able to write a plugin that would let me convert selected RAW files to JPG in-place without exporting and re-importing. 

 

So this is my formal request to please please introduce a plugins architecture for Lightroom Cloud-based. Bonus points if we can write plugins in Python or other scripting languages 🙂

I recently purchased the topaz photo suite, and I only use the new Lightroom. Topaz has a plug-in for Lightroom classic but adobe has not implemented plug-ins in the new Lightroom, limiting the capabilities of Lightroom.

Hello

Can Plugins ( like Topaz or DxO ) be installed on Lightroom (cloud-based).

If so, could you please direct me to the installation info.

Thank You

Lightroom in the cloud does NOT support plugins.

You can ask to turn this into an idea and upvote it.

Completely agree.  Lr needs the ability to incorporate plugins.  I much prefer editing and moving between devices with Lr, but the inability to easily use plugins like Topax is a necessary function that is currently not possibly, and not easily achieved even when trying to move from Lr to LrC.  Please bring plugins to Lr!!

Agree with this statement completely.  Plug-in acceptance for Denoise or PureRAW is very much needed, and is the only main feature missing that I need on Lr iPad
