Getting Started


What do I need?

Either Windows or OSX (Mac)
Lightroom 5 or newer, including CC versions
A free account with us
That's it!

How do I get started?

Download the plugin
Install the plugin

Windows MSI Installer

Simply double-click the installer and follow the prompts!

OSX (Mac), or Windows if you downloaded the zip

Extract the zip file you downloaded and put the "LRAIKeywords.lrplugin" folder anywhere you like on your disk.
Now, use Lightroom's "File->Plugin Manager" menu to open the Plugin Manager, then click on the "Add" button in the bottom left. Choose the location of the LRAIKeywords.lrplugin.
Enter your account name and API key into Lightroom's Plugin Manager
On your computer, run Lightroom and use Lightroom's "File->Plugin Manager" menu to open the Plugin Manager, then open the plugin's settings by clicking on it's name in the list. Use the email address you used to sign up here, and the access key from your Profile page. Copy and paste the access key, it's deliberately complicated!

Finally click "Check Account" to make sure that you've got them right.

What's next?

You're nearly done! Choose one or two photos in Lightroom and export them. Either use the "Request Keyword Defaults" export preset, or use "Export..." option on the File menu and choose the "Request Keywords" exporter. Either choice will do exactly the same thing.

Now just wait a few seconds for your first set of keywords to come in for review!
