If you've never installed the ShootProof Lightroom plugin, first download it from your ShootProof account and install it in Lightroom Classic, following the steps below.

If you've previously installed the plugin, make sure you have the latest version. Click File > Plugin Manager and Select ShootProof. You'll see your current version under the Status section. If your version is not 2.10, click "Check for updates now". 

*The ShootProof Lightroom Plugin is only compatible with Lightroom Classic CC v6 or newer. Any older versions of Lightroom are not supported for use with the Plugin.

You’re ready to begin uploading images into client galleries using the ShootProof Lightroom Plugin!

It's important to note that when you install the plugin, the plugin will sync existing gallery and album names into Lightroom, but not the photos themselves. This is because images from existing galleries were likely not uploaded via Lightroom. Only photos uploaded via Lightroom will  show up in your plugin.
